2 and 3

Monday - Memorial Day - evening in the rain

Hi, I was at the dog show again all day in Kalamazoo. Although Tiny took first in the Open class she did not win overall for the girls for the points. With 7-11 girl Brits entered each of the 4 days, one of 4 days winning was good. Oh well, better luck next week in Toledo.....she's at dog camp and we miss miss miss her! It was hard to say hi and bye today. Here's some puppy for ya...

By the way, the rice cereal and goat's milk combo has been upgraded to a puppy gruel. Some finely ground puppy food is mixed in too. They LOVE it.

5-27-10 - 3 weeks - weights

Beefcake = 4.25 lbs
Goober = just under 4.0 lbs
Squeaky = 3.5 lbs
Ace = 3.5 lbs
Trey = just under 3.5 lbs


The scabs from their tail dockage are starting to fall off.
I felt two back bottom teeth in the three pups I checked.
They look like little Brittany's now.
They are scrumptious.
I think I will go eat one now.
I will weigh them today or tomorrow. I think Trey is the lightest.
They are so soft and love to have their belly rubbed.
They choose to urinate on the puppy pee pad (we fondly call this area the potty chair) vs the bedding.
Tiny adores them and got in the box and layed down and lifted one rear leg up like she wanted them on her as they do with Greta. Very cute and very interesting.
I feel like that lady who watches the chimpanzees - haha.

Happy 3 Week Birthday, Babies!

You sure have grown!

milk, fresh air, and a heat lamp

Look what a belly full of goat's milk, some fresh air, and a warm bed will do to you....

little cuties

These adorable babies are starting to interact and it's so cute. They might be getting their teeth because they are biting each other and the wood in the whelp box and Greta's ears and my chin. No teeth yet, but I think they are on their way.
They don't last long but if mom isn't in the box and I call to them they start to scramble. They were growling at each other and trying to run and falling and changing directions and falling over. Very Very Cute!


back to puppies.....

Rest in Peace dear sweet Calli

Champion Voyageur-Esprit Calli Flower 4-3-1994 to 5-24-2010

You were much loved and will be very missed.

early Saturday morning Squeaky

morning video


Well, Calli woke me up at 3:45am with a scream....I think she either fell off the couch or fell trying to get on it. She's been having a bad last few days. My poor dear sweet 16 year old baby. I'll take Tiny to Corunna (west of Flint) for a dog show - will leave at 5:30am and then come back and see how Cal is doing...hang in there Cal.

Here's some pictures and videos : random of pups and Cal

I put up more individual videos, a picture, a new link about getting a new puppy, a sponge bath post, and a long new puppy info post!! Lots of new blog updates...I hope it's all readable - I dozed off several times while posting (I was tired!).

Advice for the new puppy buyers

NYC Animal Shelter & Behavioral Center
Educational support information
Advice for the New Puppy Owner
We know you'll love your puppy and do your very best to keep him happy and healthy, so here is an easy to follow guide to take good care of him. Remember; he only has you to depend upon.
1. Very important -- keep your puppy on a feeding schedule, feeding him the same meals at the same time everyday. Let's say you feed him at 7:00 AM, then again at 12:00 noon and again at 4:00 PM, make sure he has fresh water all day and after each meal. As your puppy gets older, you can reduce the meals to twice a day; and please keep in mind, no snacks. Also, make sure the puppy does not have any vigorous exercise before or after meals (never over-exercise him).
2. Remember that he's only a baby and although play is important, sleep is just as important. Never startle a dog while they are sleeping.
3. A puppy relieves himself when he wakes up, after he plays and after he eats so be sure to keep his area clean (whether paper-training or outdoor training), this prevents parasites and disease and ensures a happy, healthy puppy. He probably relieves himself away from his bed, so make sure there is paper in that spot. If you are consistent in your training, then everything will go smoothly.
4. Never allow canned dog food (and it should be puppy food) to stand more than five minutes as it gets rancid, it's unhealthy and creates bad eating habits.
5. If your puppy cries excessively all night or day and you can't soothe him, call your vet or Emergency Animal Hospital for assistance. If his temperature has to be taken, the normal range is 101 to 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
6. Make sure he doesn't get near wires or anything laying around that he could chew on or swallow. The only items that should be "left around" are his toys and they should only be dog toys made of Nylabone, hard rubber or tough rawhide (American-made rawhide). A ball should be bigger than his mouth so he can't choke on it. Teething is a vital part of puppy growth so prevent mishaps and there will be no need to reprimand the dog.
7. When the puppy relieves himself, check his stool -- it should not be loose. If it is, it might be due to diet, parasites, worms, the nervousness of a new home or something else. Have the veterinarian check it. You should also bring a stool specimen when you take the puppy for his inoculations. The stool is a good indication of a puppy's health.
8. Keep his eyes clean of discharge by wiping them with a soft, clean cloth. Some breeds are prone to a discharge.
9. Until he has his proper shots, do not expose him to the outside or to any other animal. Talk to your vet about this. Usually after his second shot, it is okay to take him out and have him around other animals.
10. When petting your puppy, speak gently and never yell in his cars. Build a close bond with your dog and you will have a happy, healthy dog and a friend for life. Let him know he can trust you by knowing who you are and depending on you to take care of him.
11. Never pick your puppy up by his neck or legs. Put your palm under his chest and be sure his backside is supported with your other hand. If you are not sure how to do this, ask us or your vet to show you the proper way.
12. Until your puppy is fully paper-trained or trained to relieve himself outside, keep him confined to a small area. Only upon your total supervision, should he be allowed the run of the house.
13. When you begin taking him outside, don't take him where all the other dogs go, always take him to the same spot in your yard (or on the street) and then clean it up. This will help keep him (as well as other animals) free of parasites.
14. If you're consistent in any training, the dog learns quicker and becomes more of a pleasure to live with.
15. If you are going to be out of the house for many hours at some point during the day or evening, you may want to consider crate-training your puppy.
16. Important ingredients for a happy, healthy dog - Love, Understanding, Proper Nutrition, Exercise and Obedience Training. If you are not sure of anything, ask your vet.
As of this moment, you have become responsible for someone else, so it's up to you to work out a schedule to give your puppy the best care possible. As your puppy gets a little older and understands more, it gets easier. Please be patient and understanding to his needs because you have a new best friend.
Good Luck!

Little dirty babies today

When I came home a few of the babies weren't as clean as usual...Greta missed some spots so there were a few poopy puppies. So they all got warm sponge baths then went under the heat lamp to dry off. They all liked their sponge baths and were cooperative during the bath and the towel dry. Everyone had a 10pm meal and now they are sleeping....alone....I don't know where Greta is.

Goober getting air

Ace 2

Ace getting some air

Trey getting a little fresh air

Squeaky getting some fresh air

Beefcake getting kisses before getting fresh air

Beefcake and I kissing

Two weeks today

Moving around more but still really just after food and a comfortable place to sleep. They haven't reacted too much to the toys but a few were licking each other this morning.

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Ace 2.5 lbs

Trey 2.5 lbs

Beefcake 3.0 lbs

Goober 2.75 lbs

Squeaky - 2.5 lbs


Eyes all open

But they still really are just interested in mom and the food. Their little eyes are so pretty and they look at you but I'm not sure what they can see yet. Ears still closed (I didn't check everyone, but most of them).

They all have very pretty faces. I want to gaze at them non-stop, but they don't really want to look at me - they want DOWN and back at mom or to sleep. They all lick me but not so much for affection but looking for food, I think.

Soon enough I'll be wishing they would sleep but I can't wait for a little play time now.

Get out of his way!

Mom's taking a little rest....

Until further notice

Their names are (mostly descriptive) Beefcake (biggest), Squeaky, Goober (Max wanted a Goober and by process of elimination), Ace (Ace bandage appearance on right front arm), and TripleDot (Trey? - has three spots down his back/tail). They might change but for now.......

Next to open eyes....

Little Ace. He looked at me through the little slit openings at 4:30am on his way to eat. Everyone had a snack and they are back sleeping at 4:45am. TripleDot (Trey??) gave me a bunch of kisses, he's a lover.

Two more still have yet to open their eyes, I'm sure it will be sometime today.

Monday, May 17, 2010

Look how fast we are now!

Second set of eyes opening..

Guess who? The other girl! The last one born. Goober. The girls are so ADVANCED! Aren't they always, though?!

enough sleeping and eating already!! I want to play!

Ok, 11 days of eating and sleeping is enough. I waited ALL day to come home and play with puppies and look at eyes, and they have all been sleeping since I got home and now 3 are eating and 2 are sleeping. Can I pinch them to wake them up?? Ok, I won't, I'll just go kiss them all over their precious bodies!!!

So I got home and I guess Greta decided to rearrange the's what it looked like and the mountain goats climbing up to the top.... :) My puppies are the cutest things I ever saw!! :) :) (smiles)!!!


who else??.......Squeaky. She does everything first. Her eyes are just barely open but they are open. She was the first born too. I will report more later after I clean up their whelp box. I came home to a mess. Greta must have messed it all up and I'll show a picture later. One of them climbed a mountain..... funny. more soon.

They are starting to open...........

Someone has opened their eyes but Max didn't tell me who it was.....I can't wait to go home!!

Eyes still closed

None of these precious babies want to open up their eyes to see me yet. I'm sure I'm a fright in the morning so maybe tonight. Mark said he'd call me if they opened up during the day, but I think they want to wait to see me first :). I did get a nose lick from little Ace, that was a nice way to send me off to work.

Breakfast (and a nap)

Fat and Sassy

Beefcake sure is beefy.....big girl is sassy, Ace (ace bandage appearance on right arm) is a nice boy, Triple back/tail guy too, and littlest girl very cute....

More to report as soon as eyes open and they interact with mom, each other, toys, and us.....

Faces changing a little....they DO love to eat and next favorite thing.....sleeping. I'm trying to kiss them now and they just want to sleep.

Greta is just in there with them while triple dot guy is eating and others are sleeping, but she'll venture out here and there when they are content, and of course for her to eat....she's still super hungry even though her intake has more than quadrupled! Gotta produce that milk, I guess.

Hopefully more pics and videos sometime today or tomorrow.

New homes are getting excited

Babies, get your rest because your new families want to come and see you.....they can't wait.

Greta's friend, Kodi, who had her pups sired by Dealer, also, and were born on May 2nd, those puppies opened their eyes early this morning!!

We expect our little balls of fur to open theirs maybe Sunday or Monday.

pictures before and after tail dockage

so cute!!

Day of Reckoning

These babies: Sleepy, Porky, Fatty, Chunky, and Goofy (I'll come up with something better, I promise) will go to get their dewclaws removed and their tails docked today. Then they will start looking like little Brittany's and not little spotted rats. I'll post a picture later.

Greta is such a great mom (Greta the Great!) that I still haven't seen any evidence of them soiling the bedding in the box.

Ok, I gotta go back to kissing these little faces! I just caught the first hint of puppy breath this morning!!! :)

more videos

few pictures



Happy Mother's Day, Greta

I'm sitting here with my coffee, Tiny, Greta, and the 5 precious babies (Calli only comes down the hallway by accident). Squeaky woke me up....guess who...yep, little big girl...first born, and she hasn't shut up since the second she got out. She has a personality, that's for sure....Mark thinks she's going to be another Lola.

I just saw one scratch it's ear with it's hind leg...just like a big dog..very cute...oh wait...that was Squeaky...she's so advanced!! lol

They are sure getting fat. Tomorrow they will get their tails docked and dewclaws removed. Then they will look like real little Brittany's and not little spotted rats. (does anyone know how to make puppy-tail soup??)

...more later....I'm going to try to post a little will be very short...I tried to put a 30 second one up and even that was too large so maybe a 5 or 10 second one will post......

Happy Mother's Day to Greta (Calli) and all the other mother's out there!!

These little balls of fur are noticeably larger than two days's incredible how fast they grow! I heard a little growl too :)
