2 weeks old

These little guys are certainly starting young. They're already standing up and waddling around the whelping box. They'll be 2 weeks old on Tuesday and we don't usually see this much activity until week 3. We're sure enjoying being home and hanging out with puppies.

Bree and Drake babies - 5 days old

All the babies are doing very well. Bree has recovered from whelping and if you didn't know, you'd never know she had babies less than a week ago. She's certainly being a better mommy than she was with her last litter - she's got the whole "hanging out with the babies" thing down pat.

The puppies are growing quickly and are certainly very vocal. They woke me up a few times in the night squeaking.

Today, we welcomed our Bree and Drake puppies into the world. Bree started whelping last night at 10 pm and finished this morning at 6. We have 9 puppies in total - 6 boys and 3 girls. So far everyone is doing great.

We're enjoying a visit from Wendy and Ron Hunter's dogs Leia and Reba. Leia is a Drake/Destiny daughter and Reba is a Leia/Rowan daughter. Both these girls are lovely and fun. Mark took them training yesterday, along with Ranger and Rowan. Today they're hanging out with the other dogs on the deck. Reba has decided queen of the castle on the big rock in the yard is a very fun game.
