Havanese Puppies See the World!

Our puppies are 17 days old now and their eyes are pretty much open. No, they cannot focus yet but they can see shadows which has to be exciting. Even more exciting is that their little legs are getting strong enough that they can move about the whelping box very well. Here are some photos … you’ll be amazed how much they’ve grown!

Puppy 4 is developing some nice brown markings!

Getting so strong!

Eyes wide open!

Telling secrets?

Puppy play is beginning to take form.

They can get to their milk station much faster now.

I love it when their eyes open!!!

Havanese puppies – 10 days old

Here are some photos of our individual puppies. Their noses are mostly black now but their eyes are still closed. Next time I’ll use my camera. I’m not too happy with the quality of my phone photos.

Our Havanese Puppies are getting bigger

Maxi is giving baths. This also stimulates the puppys’ bowels.

Our Havanese puppies are one week old now and have almost doubled in size! I love their little pink paws and round bellies. Eyes are still closed…noses still pink. That will soon change!

Everyone is gaining nicely. They like to sleep in a clump!

Meet the Parents

With the arrival of our latest litter of Havanese puppies I thought I should post some photos of our next Mom and Dad. They are expecting February 25. Our Marli is the sable and cream and Ruger is all black. We’ll have some wonderful color combinations including black and tan which excites me because we haven’t had that color before.

Ruger with attitude.

Marli seems a little bored but, really, she isn’t at all. Just playing hard to get.

Nice shot of the parents.

I think Ruger is whispering sweet nothings in Marli’s ear.

We Have Havanese Puppies!

Our pretty girl, Maxi, whelped nine puppies New Years Eve! I knew things were beginning to happen when she would not leave her whelping box. She started labor about 3 pm that day…a mild restlessness and urge to nest and by 5 pm she started contractions. The first puppy, a boy, arrived at 5:45 PM weighing a whopping 5.3 ounces!

Eight of the puppies are black and white parti. One is mostly white with black on her head and the others have wonderful markings in a variety of patterns. The ninth puppy (a boy) appears to be chocolate. Time will tell as this is a fairly rare color. Maxi carries for chocolate but we aren’t sure if Dino does or not. 

I will try to post photos (and ones with better clarity)  every few days so stay tuned!
