Some Closeups!

This is Pumpkin. She is a red sable parti. Middle of the pack in size.

Up until now, with the exception of my first set of photos, I have taken videos.

Why?

Because getting these little ones to stay still is near impossible.

It took 60+ shots to get these 12.

Fun, but frustrating. Life could be worse, right?

Love this litter.

 

This is Autumn. She has held her spot as the smallest pup in the litter.

Autumn, paws up!

This is Boo. Love her pirate patch!

Boo playing with the rattle toy.

Nutmeg is the color of, well, nutmeg! A little red but mostly sable and black with white markings.

Nutmeg looking me right in the eye, which she does often!! Love that.

Pumpkin asking to be picked up!

This is Shadow, one of our boys. Loves his rattle toy!

Shadow again. Both boys are mid sized. Shadow is slightly bigger.

This is Spooky, our other boy. Smallest of the two but still bigger than Autumn.

Spooky and the toy!

And, Just like that, We are 4 Weeks Old!

Havanese are the cutest! Now they are mouthing each other, toys and anything else they can get their tiny mouths around! Playing in earnest!

It has been a busy week what with our trek south in the Motorhome, our dealings with the ravages of Ian, a leak in my bedroom wall and just generally getting settled in.

Of course the puppies could care less! They have more important things to do!

As for Puppy Culture, we have been getting our toes tickled, our bellies rubbed and our bedroom full of new textures and toys.

 

Introducing Our Glorious Fall Litter!

Luna’s puppies are growing by leaps and bounds! Their little pink noses are beginning to turn black. Eyes should begin to open in another week or so.

And, thanks to my grandson, they now have names. Our theme is Glorious Fall.

This is Autumn. She weighs 264 grams!

This is Boo! She is the largest pup at 338 grams.

This is Nutmeg. Her name fits her coloring perfectly. She weighs 258 grams.

This is Pumpkin Spice. I love her coloring! She weighs 302 grams.

This is Shadow. He weighs 304 grams.

And this is Spooky. He weighs 264 grams.

Puppies Have Arrived!

Luna delivered 6 beautiful puppies on Monday. I should actually say my vet delivered them as she had a c-section! LOL.

She has recovered extremely well and is one of the most attentive puppy moms I have had. To the point of moving them to a different place in my bedroom if she isn’t happy with the whelping box. It took some convincing to ensure her that the whelping box is really the best place. Amazing how those canine instincts come into play.

Struggling with names so stay tuned on that!

We have already begun our Puppy Culture protocol. This week is fairly simple. Gentle handling, belly rubs and soothing voice (which they probably cant hear yet but they still get the ‘vibes’.
