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.

Fresh Air and a Warm Winter Breeze! A Video

Puppies are 5 weeks old now and able to enjoy the wonderful weather in Southwest Florida. It took a few minutes to get accustomed to this new environment but pretty soon they were enjoying their picnic and the fresh Florida air!

Boy Are We Busy!!!

Puppies are growing by leaps and bounds. So much has happened over the last few days I don’t know where to begin.

We removed the rails in the whelping boxes because the puppies were big enough that mom would khow if she happened to sit on one of them….and, there is a lot more room without the rails.

Then, we introduced the litter boxes. Because the litter boxes take up so much room, we had to move to a bigger apartment! After just a few days, puppies are doing great going potty in the litter boxes.

Then we introduced the back yard! A bit scary at first. Funny sensations on our toes. Breezy air in our ears. Lots of nature sounds. Oh my!  But, after 20 minutes or so, all these dangers melted away and they just played and played.

Playing in our whelping box for the last time. Note the rails have been removed now. Puppies are large enough that they don’t have to worry about being squished by mom!

And, playing….playing…playing.

Sunshine, fresh air and grass…..oh my! Puppies love exploring and, after just a few minutes, they LOVED exploring their outdoor pen.

Here is their outdoor playground in our back yard. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can play outside every day!
