Thanks to all who patiently waited for this packed-full update on BOTH litters! What an exciting time in the puppy barn with so much going on! Let's take a look at Oakley's babes. . . boy, are they ever movin' and shakin' (one of my favorite phrases with puppies) . . .
"WE ARE WALKING with tummies off the ground! (but not in this photo). . . . but Rhonda tucks all sorts of things inside with us to crawl over. . . she says it helps build our leg muscles, so we try!"
"Our first photo shoot! Rhonda had some help, and this man put us all in a row. . . but we really didn't want to stay there. . . so here's what we look like while Rhonda was trying to take that perfect photo . . . she says that rarely happens!" . . . . .
"Here's a short video of us with our Mamma Oakley. . . Rhonda said she's sorry it isn't longer, but Mamma was photo-bombing the video. . . I guess she wanted to snuggle with her nose!" So. . . here ya' go. . . "
"And here we are with Mamma. . . . we spend a lot of time like this. . . Rhonda says it will only be a few more days and she will make our play and sleep space larger! I guess we should be excited, but we don't know what 'larger' looks like?? She says we just need to get a little stronger yet. . . we can't wait to see what's coming!"
And now for Ina's litter . . . . there are TEN puppies! For our mamma who is retiring this season, this was a gallant effort in motherhood. . . just think of that ladies. . . it's like us being in our 40's. . . goodness!
"And here we all are!! You can see our one back foot is colored (supposed to be toenails only! but we are so small yet, that Rhonda sometimes misses our tiny toenails and just uses polish on some of the toes!) She says she uses this to know who we are, since she weighs us every day. She's also doing these funny exercises with us. . .she calls it ENS or something like that. . . and says it's good for us."
So I'll end this post for now, thanking all of you expecting families that waited! (I was actually in ER from an allergic reaction to a tetanus shot, but am now feeling better.) The puppies are all doing well. . .growing like weeds, we like to say. While Oakley puppies have found their voices, Ina puppies are concentrating on putting on the ounces. Emily (our employee) and I spend our time cleaning pens, holding puppies, and feeding mammas. It's kind of the course of the day here. . . but with each passing day, things change, and so do the things we do. We'll do our best to keep you all updated on these special puppies. We're just so excited to see how our first Goose babies mature . . should be real keepers!
Until next time! Happy Puppy Dreaming - Rhonda
