Cute Puppy Poses

The Puppies moved into their new home last night after we had several escapes from the whelping box! The pen will get larger as they do.

In this shot, the little one (Ziggy) decided the best way to get her share of food is to get in the bowl - she's a smart cookie!

Rudy Update

Since I had to be in court this morning, Rick had to take Rudy to the Vet and my information is a bit sketchy. Rudy has two bulging discs. He was given a steroid shot and is now on a muscle relaxer and oral steroids. He is on crate rest for at least a week and cannot do steps - which is a problem in our house...Guess we will be carrying him in and out of the house for a while. We will be calling in the holistic Vet that does Chiropractic adjustments and Acupuncture for treatments as well. Our Vet feels that he should make a full recovery. I guess his herding days are over now. Any suggestions on how we avoid any future problems for Rudy would be greatly appreciated.

Help! Need advice

Rudy (our red Merle rescue) is down in his back. He started limping 2 days ago and yesterday had trouble getting up steps. Today he can lift his front but has a great deal of difficulty getting his butt up. I carried him out this morning to do his business and he has not moved from the spot I set him down in. I have given him some aspirin and that seems to help the pain some. I have never had to deal with this before - any suggestions on how to make him more comfortable till we can get him to the vet tomorrow would be greatly appreciated.

Almost Daily Cute

Most of the puppies eyes are open and they descend upon poor Kate as soon as she enters the whelping box. She lets them all latch on and then plops on her side. Puppies squirt out on both sides but somehow never let loose. They are so cute, I can spend hours watching them. I have been late to work everyday this week.







Our theme for this litter will be World War II - we are thinking of:
ROSIE THE RIVETER
ENOLA GAY
MEMPHIS BELLE
WINSTON CHURCHILL
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
PEARL HARBOR
I SHALL RETURN
DOUGLAS MACARTHUR
Any suggestions..........

Daily Cute (well almost daily)

The puppies will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. ALL are doing well. They are now raising themselves up on wobbly little legs and staggering around the whelping box. I expect to see little eyes looking back at me anytime.

I will try to post pictures of each puppy later this week.

Daily Cute Resumes

Our little one has bounced back and is on it's way to a full recovery. Woo Hoo - puppies are so resilient! Here are a few puppy shots taken this morning!

Scary days

On Monday one of our puppies was injured in an unfortunate accident (involving my 80 year old step-father-in-law who suffers with Alzheimer's). The vet diagnosed a mild concussion. After several harrowing days, the baby appears to be improving. We are not out of the woods yet, but the puppy is nursing on her own. Once things settle down, we will resume our daily cute shots. Keep your fingers, toes and paws crossed for our little one.

Daily Cute(s)

First just let me say that it is really hard to take head shots of 3 day old puppies. I did my best....the names are temporary

Dot - Bitch - Brindle/red? - has 1 dot on neck
Dot Dot - Male brindle/red? - 2 dots on neck

No Dot -Male - brindle/red? no dots!
Pirate - male - black/white - lots of white but not a mismark!

Zorro - male - brindle/red? - Z shape mark on neck

Ziggy - Bitch - black/white - Z mark on shoulder

Frosty - bitch - black/white - white tipped ears

As you can tell Frosty is showing what she thinks of this process!
Mom and babies are doing well - Everyone gaining weight.
