I spy.... 14 little blue eyes! (Albeit, some more than others!)
Eyes are slowly starting to open and this week, their little ears will also start to open up. They are learning how to use those little legs and getting stronger every single day!
Life in the whelping box is about to get a whole lot more exciting!
This is such a sweet, cuddly bunch. Even at the young age of two weeks old, they love to be held and cuddled on.
Another wonderful week has passed! This little crew has been so easy. Momma Livie has stayed by their side just about every second of every day so far.
They are eating well and growing fast! Mr. Sunny is holding his position as the smallest puppy in the litter and Mr. Bolt is holding his spot as the largest puppy in the litter.
They all posed pretty for their pictures this morning. This was the easiest photo shoot I have had in a long while! Everyone snuggled right into a cute position and I'm pretty sure a few even smiles for me.
We're looking forward to eyes opening this week!
I cannot believe these pups are already a week old! Everyone is doing great. Their little pink noses are turning brown, their bellies are getting pretty round, and they are spending all of their time cuddled up with mom. I am posting their pictures a little late today, because every time I went in there, they were eating. Lola is taking great care of them all!
Livie and her litter are all thriving! The puppies have already gained a few ounces each and they are doing great! They are eating and napping like champions! We have another boy heavy litter, with four boys and three girls!
The kids decided to continue the spring theme with Livie's litter. So, we are excited to introduce: Oaks, Sunny, Willow, Branch, Sunshine, Blossom, and Bolt! We had fun coming up with the temporary names, but we're VERY excited to hear what their forever families choose to name them.
Congratulations Miss Livie Lou!
We are so excited to announce that she welcomed seven little pups late Friday night!
Mom and babies are all doing wonderful.
We are so excited for the adventure ahead of us!
These pups are sure to bring some much needed light into the world!
Miss Lola's pups are all doing great! They were all born right around 10 ounces and they are steadily gaining weight together every single day. We have five boys, two girls and they all have beautiful brown wavy coats- just like their parents!
Since we are expecting two litters this week, we decided to go with a "puppy theme" instead of having two "Puppy 1's, Puppy 2's. ect..." Because they were born on the first official day of spring break, the kids decided it would be fun to run with a spring/nature theme! We had a lot of fun thinking up nature related names, but we're very excited to hear the real names their forever families come up with.
Our first 24 hours... Smiles and cuddles galore.
Lola and the little ones are doing GREAT!
As you can see from the photos, she is one proud mom.
More pictures coming soon.
Spring break is upon us.
We're starting off with rain, homework, movies, and cuddles!
(And laundry, always laundry! Ha! Ha!)
We are just about a week out from the pup's estimated due dates! Everyone is doing well. Spirits are high, bellies are big, and excitement is steadily building! We are all so excited for the adventure ahead.
It's been a wild February here. We have had everything from ice and snow to 70's and sunshine. This weekend was a warm one and we made sure to enjoy it.
