On the Road

We left Michigan a week ago and what a week it’s been! Nursing one puppy who just didn’t seem to get to the nipple fast enough. (We have eight puppies and Lily has seven nipples). Caring for all the other dogs. Etc. Etc.

Then the trip: First was all the packing. Then the prep work on the motor home. Then the packing…for two adults and 15 dogs!

Then the unpacking four days later. Cleaning and dusting off the house. Setting up the porch/dog room with puppy pen, dog crates, etc.

We are exhausted to say the least. But all went well … better than we expected. So no complaints.

First Days of Playtime

Lily’s puppies will be 3 weeks old on Tuesday. Below is a link to a video I took last Friday.

The video is too long to include in this post. But if you copy the link (MINUS THE PERIOD AT THE END) and paste it in your browser, you can watch it on You tube.

It shows them beginning to play with each other, snuggle and wobble on their little legs.  The best!!

Our Eyes Are Beginning to Open!!

This is when the fun begins! The puppies are moving around a lot now and all but one have eyes at least partially open! They are also making fun coos and chirps…almost like little birds. Please click “MORE” to see photos of each pup at two weeks.

Lily Has Puppies!!

Lily whelped 8 beautiful puppies October 11. Six boys and two girls.

I’m sorry for the delayed posting but I had a hip replacement September 29 so we have been very busy!!!

Anyway, mom and puppies are doing well. You can see more about the parents on my “New Litters” page.

Meanwhile, here are some photos.

Uno, now Junot, Still Needs a Home!

We are looking for the perfect home for this little guy. He has lots of energy but will settle down and cuddle too. He weighs about 6 pounds…will likely be about 9 pounds as an adult.

This is Marlis pup born April 19. It wasn’t until he was about 8 weeks old that we began to notice something different about him. He has a short coat! We now call him Junot and his coat is the result of a recessive genes carried by each of his parents. Hence the term short-coated Havanese. As you can see, he has a very sweet face and gorgeous Havanese almond eyes! He is by far the most friendly pup I’ve raised. Loves to be petted, to play and to be on my lap. Bonus…he is incredibly intelligent.

He’s King of the Castle! A favorite game!

Because of his coat there is a chance is Junot is not as hypo-allergenic as most Havanese. On the up side…he doesn’t need to be brushed three times a week!

if you would like to meet Junot, send me a note!
