The Girls The boys
A nother week went by and the Puppys are 7 weeks now. All of them are growing nicely and they all should grow to about 24.5"+ apart from little Fiana lol She is our clown. Fuchur and Faris seem to take after their Dad and I would not be surprised if they get 26"+ All Puppy enjoy their dayly run in the garden or in our big "dog´s garden" They have also learned that appels are very tasty and how to play with the cats. We are getting much better with the housetraing. I can leave them for 4h during the night with out an eccidant. Which I think is great so I only have to get up once during the night :-) I still try to use the Dog´s room as a Puppy room but that gets more complicated by the day as the Puppys rather like to be with us lol So the Pppys are enjoying the freerun of the kitchenarea as much as possible. Once all puppys are tired they will all lay down to sleep in the kitchen. The 15 Puppys and my 4 Minitures fit easely on one blanket lol
The Puppys are 6 weeks now and are getting bigger by the day. We have set up the freerun in the garden at the weekend which give the Puppys more room to play as we are now able to leave the door open during the day. I have seen the Puppys lots of time going out to toilet and then come back in to see who is awak to play with or they just went back to bed :-) I am very pleased about this as it will be very easy for there new family to house train them IF the family is given them the chance to do it reight !!! The Puppys are also eating more as La Vita is weaning them. The brinndle Puppys and Fiana had a bit of a trim today to show you there colours :-)
A lot has happened and changed with in the last week. We moved from the bottle to bowl and food which all Puppys liked and each Puppy is getting a few bits of Puppyfood on the table which they also liked. There Puppypen is now much bigger as they all are very aktive and playfull. The Babys are still young and woun´t play for long but the time when they play they use as much space as they can get :-) I always try to get my Puppys used to the Puppytoiltet which has alwas worked out fine but this Babys and our Toys would not take to the Puppytoilet and rather liked to play in it. So now I have taken the toilet out and take the Puppys into the garden which works absolutly great. They go out every 2h or as soon as I hear them. Normaly I would also leave the Puppys in the Puppy/Dogs room for the night from the age of 4 weeks but because the Puppys are following me out in the garden so well I have decided to keep them in my bedroom for the night. There are only very little eccidents during the nights and this will get less as the Puppys get older :-)
The Puppys also had quite a lot of visitors during the week and Chris and his family came today to visit the Puppys and see their little girl Felia.Non of the puppys are shy or nervouse around other people and they all enjoyed the extra attention and cuddles. Most of the Puppys cuddled up with Sophi as they started to get tiered, bless them.
There is a lot og life coming into the house now as the Puppys are 4 weeks old :-) Zaphira has now started to play and sleep with the Puppys and I have also introduced them into Toni´s Puppys. This Puppys are ofcourse much nigger then the little Toypuppys from Toni but they get along very well. La Vita does not mind to have them in her nest and Toni will show me when she wants her Babys back.
Puppys are 3 weeks today. They have found there voices and legs :-) All of them are fine and are spending the day in our dog´s room. Kijara has decided to be the Puppysitter and is taking good care of the Babys when La Vita needs a break. I have trimmed the Puppys for the first time and all went well. Their colours are coming through nicely on there paws and faces. Some of the Brindle Puppys seem to develop into Brindle Sabble, Fiana for sure and I think one of the boys too. I will be able to tell more about the colours as the puppys grow. I have also started to bottle feed the Puppys. One reason is to help La Vita and a nother reason is to get a stronger bound between the Puppys and me :-)
WOW 2 weeks already !! All are fine, eye are open and the ears are almost open. Life is slowly coming into the nest as the Puppys are finding there voices and are starting to walk around, but they are still sleeping most of the time :-) This babys are also very cam and its an easy litter, like the one Kijara had. All Puppys are used to be handled and as they do fall asleep in my hands I am very sure that they enjoy the extra attention and cuddel.
This is the "real" photo to show you the brindleing

La Vita is now 50 days pregnant and is getting bigger by the day. She is doing fine but, like Toni, seems to have enough of being pregnant. Her Puppys have started to move which I enjoy very much. I will try and get a video of the babys moving. La vita is still playing fetch but I anly let her get the ball 5 or 6 times. That really in enough for her at the moment.
