Puppies Meet the Kids

What is the best way to raise puppies who greet strangers with kisses and wagging tails? 

1. Pick a breed known to enjoy the company of humans (like the Havanese).

2. Socialize, socialize, socialize.

Guess what we did Saturday?

Big Field Trip Today!!

We went to have our ears tested today–
It is called the Baer Hearing Test.
Very high-tech!

You can check out the video
on the left of this page too!

Here is Rapper checking out the equipment!

Sammy wired and ready to go!

More Fun in the Kitchen

Puppies are spending lots of time with me in the kitchen…when they are not in the back yard! None of the scary sounds–dishwasher, pans clanking, vacuum cleaner, stove buzzers–even phase them! Of course, they are getting lots and lots of kisses from people and from their Mama!

Best news of all…….They are using the piddle pad!!!!

These are the puppies we have left. Katie (sitting), Rapper and Sammy (sleepover) and Go Go.

Time Flies Faster

…when the puppies are on their own. Phoebe has been a great mother but I have been working diligently at weaning the puppies. They enjoy their Wellness Puppy Kibble now, soaked overnight in water and served up with some goat’s milk. MMmmmmmm.

This also means Phoebe is finished with clean up so my workload has significantly increased. If I could get right to it rather than playing with them each time I lean over their pen I could get back to my day job. Wait! This IS my day job. Love it!

 Finally got some photos. They weren’t what I’d hoped for but I will try again next Friday and work with them on their ‘stand’ command which right now goes in one ear and out the other! Enjoy.
