Quick Video

I took this of the pups in their little cardboard box with my iPhone. Not as clear as my nice video camera but much easier to upload to YouTube.



Puppy Photo shoot outtakes!!

I brought the little guys out to my photo backdrop area (OK it's a fleece blanket laid on the couch) in a cardboard box. It seemed that box made for some cute photos as the pups seemed to play in there ... then go RIGHT to sleep - and I mean dead to the world asleep!!

But first.... some cute photos on the blanket!!
Two brothers... (the Black tri boy #2 and black and white boy #2)

I mentioned in my earlier post ... the black tri boy #2 likes to talk. Here's a photo of him 'singing".
Now onto the box!!

Playtime .... wrestling!!

I am getting sleepy.....

Yep he's out!!

So is he!!

She is too!! (Puppies can sleep in the funniest positions!! )

These photos were taken end of last week, ALL the pups have their eyes wide open now!! They are starting to toddle around, they try to stand and walk too!!
We are getting to the REALLY fun stages now!!!

Updated Photos of CueB x Fog pups

Here are some photos of the CueB x Fog puppies at a week old.

Part of why these photos are late in being posted, is that we have been busy fighting hard to make sure a few of the smaller ones were thriving. With a litter this size (and a new Momma) it is always a concern that all pups grown and thrive. Sadly one of the slate merle girls failed to grow and thrive. Despite our round the clock efforts (vet calls, SQ fluids, additional feedings, antibiotics just in case etc... etc...) she ended up to not be a viable puppy and passed away.

So here are the happy healthy remaining pups!!

April Fools BABIES!!!

This is a breeding I have wanted and planned for a long time. After importing Ellie in and beginning to work her on stock, I knew that someday I would want to cross her children to a Imp. Cloud offspring. (Both bitches go back to similar lines that I like a great deal).

This good sized litter of pups were delivered with little to no help from me by "CueB" (she is pictured on the right of the blog). The proud father is "Fog" (also pictured to the right on the blog).

Inhale deeply there will be lots of puppy breath!!! This photo was taken shortly after they were delivered and dried. Sadly we did loose the smallest black and white boy. Leaving us with a wonderful litter of EIGHT puppies!!

The count is: BOYS: Two black and white males, Two black tri males (one has very little white like grandma Cloud and daddy Fog), one slate blue boy (he too has little white). GIRLS: One black tri girl (almost no white on her) and two Slate merle girls.

Yep that's right!! The two slate (merle) girls do have darker slate spots on them ... which clearly answers the question that Fog is a merle since he now has produced two merle offspring!!

Don't worry there will be lots more photos to come!! They are already a week old (yeah yeah I know I needed to get the photos up faster ... but had a busy week!!). I do have week old photos taken already and I will post them soon I PROMISE!!
