Charlie pups are starting to work. . . well, we call it work! They are moving on different surfaces and learning different sounds, as well as continuing their comfort with our handlers. Gruel is great, and puppies eat 3xd from their dish and faces and feet are washed after eating. Not too many complaints, though, they like their new diet! Though it seems like we are tirelessly washing faces and feet (and sometimes tummies) after mealtime, we let you see what these little ones look like in their everyday. And though we'd love to have spotless images of beautiful creamy colored puppies (we do these for photo shoots!), we think it's important to be real and transparent about our process, kind of like letting others see your children in their play clothes after a good day in the backyard! :)
Bonnie Sue pups are ON THE MOVE! These pudgy little punkins are investigating everything. Working outdoors in smaller groups now, they are gaining confidence in new challenges and in fewer numbers of siblings.
Vivi pups are really movin' and shakin' in their last week with us! There are more complicated applications and skills this week. . . more steps, inclines, outdoor challenges, pool experiences, and more! We're hoping to get in a few rides in the Jeep, and we're playing with Silas and Bella this week. Eating individually and taking our big-pup vitamins are also on the list. A few more "firsts" and "seconds" and a whole bunch of "all-the-time" experiences are still yet to do. Puppy aptitude testing will be completed tomorrow, and these babes will be matched with their new owners before the week is over. It's won't be long now! This is a super group - so responsive and so willing to follow and join you in the fun. Good little puppies!!
The videos below are on Day 1 in the training room and Day 2. Look at the difference in the confidence and activity! (and noise level!) Puppies are doing super on play and no biting, as well as potty training - HOORAY!
Growing, growing, growing! These are the largest mats and they are still more than filling them! While one Vivi group is all soft and snuggly, the other is all tousled, and a bit dirty and damp from being outside. . . lol. . . . more of those everyday play images that will some day in the future turn into BIG Goldens who have played in the wet and mud! ;)
Who'd have thought that in a mere six and a half weeks, these are the same puppies who were photographed below. . . .
We'll see you all soon, Vivi families!! We're looking forward to meeting you all! ~ rhonda
