On Their Way to Families!

The final days of week 8 have arrived. We do keep the puppies until the 8th week is finished and they have had all the time possible to spend with mom and siblings.

They are getting a bit more vocal!

Chewbacca had something to say!

Padme has a rather independent spirit which will take her far…she has been nicknamed Houdini! Maybe she is just intuitive! “my papa is coming!” She was the first of the females to really catch onto eating (competing with Chewbacca) and often is the first to step out on her own.

Houdini at Large!

So indeed Padme went home to Bend this a.m. Tomorrow morning Chewbacca will also be going to Bend. They have half-brothers there to catch up with and hang out, Fessik and Bascom to name two. Padme and Chewbacca will undoubtedly meet again, since both fellows in the new families are active hiking/biking types.

Inside and out they are a smart bunch!

Napping again…it won’t be long and I’ll be able to do that too!

The challenge is always catching them after they wake up but before they pee…because within a couple minutes of waking, they will relieve themselves. This litter has been super good about taking care of business outside, but the pee part hasn’t yet been mastered. When they go home, the families will be able to teach that pretty quickly.

Here again I’m premature!

The last two puppies will go home Sunday. The one going to near Juno Alaska, Leia, will also have a half-sibling, Rosie, with whom to play. Rosie and Leia actually look very similar with the clear sable and a dot on her head. Leia leaves the farm at 4:30 a.m. and the puppy express will take her to the Eugene airport where she will be met and can fly home under the seat with mom and without stress. There are three in this attentive working-at-home family to absorb her and share in the fun…North to Alaska!

The last puppy, Rey, will go to Portland where there are several half-siblings as well, Dickens being one. Rey, being the smallest of the group, has learned a great deal about holding her own and you really wouldn’t know that she was a half-pint not that long ago. Delightful puppy to a delightful family!

I have learned so much from this litter! Thank you all for your contribution to that!

I have found balance in the cow hoof, kong and rawhide..

Ahhh yes…soon now returning to “normal” life….

Week Six!

Oh my…things are moving very fast…I’ve had all the greatest intentions of posting but time eludes us.

I’m always touched by hearing from puppy owners. Sometimes they are just incredible stories. This one just in… he says, “She broke her ankle hiking off trail in Montana in July and Cody sought our friends looking for her and led them to her ( I was gone fishing). What a smart, empathic member of our family.”

Doesn’t that just make your day!?

Here are the puppers enjoying the puppy yard.

WITH WEANING ALMOST A THING OF THE PAST BREEZE IS GETTING BACK INTO PLAY WITH HER YOUNG FRIEND

Oh yeah … the routine stuff…sleeping and eating…

Week 7 is just around the corner. We’ll be doing the innoculations and Renee, Breeze’s breeder, will be helping me to look at structure and such to help with the best placements for the puppies…always looking forward to that. The pup’s personalities can change quite a bit in week 7, so that is an interesting process to watch unfold.
