DAY #38

We had fish today. We had fresh raw liver today, just a little. We added bullysticks to the romper room today. AND and and we had our first field trip today, WOOP!

Day #35

Such a content morning. Mama Beetz wanted in with her pups about 3:30am, and she stayed in there with them until about 6pm, the puppies were so calm so content, and probably super milked up. They all went to the pads, or close, eliminated and then went back to sleep until about 9am. I try…

DAY #32

So much fun today – #2 male puppy had his new family come and visit today. So fun to see a grown cowboy say OUCH when a puppy is munching on his toes! hahaha Such a sweet visit. I am getting my puppy packets together – because I am a breeder, and a trainer, and…

DAY #31

Well it started lightly yesterday and is in full swing today. F.R.A.P. – frenetic random activity periods OR frenetic random acts of play sessions. Lots of owners call this – zoomies, the bewitching hour, unleashing the kraken, crazed puppy, and none of these are wrong, they all describe the same thing. And it is all…

DAY #30

Snowy day. Lots of family visiting today. Lots of everything good. The puppies had some commercial raw food today mixed in with their chicken/raw goat milk/winter squash slurry. It was turkey protein, so their first change in protein, and some additions of different types of fruit and veggie. We also had our first bone day,…

DAY #29

Today it is all pictures and video – Enjoy! These beds were from my last litter, and Mama Beetz started to sleep in them when she was 4 weeks old. I love saving things like this for generations to come! #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7

DAY #28

This was a super fun morning. #7 was standing and rocking back and forth growling and I was wondering what she was doing, and then she lunged a bit forward with a little bark. This was the first bark in the litter, and it surprised #7 as well as everyone else. Shortly after that #2…

DAY #24

Well day #2 eating and everyone was super hungry and super stoked with the puppy-slurry. Less clean up than yesterday, but still a bit messy, as is expected. And the first afternoon in the romper room. The pups will be in there during most of the afternoon, Mama Beetz can ask to go in and…

DAY #23

FOOD DAY! Today was the puppies first day trying food. It is a progression – they are sucklers and nursing. They will then try lapping, and then learn to grab, rip, and swallow. Todays menu was a slurry of three times ground chicken with bone and skin, Sunny’s raw goats milk – on a cutting…

DAY #22

So much fun today. We have orientation to known voices. Puppies trying to focus on eye contact. Psst if you didn’t know, Border Collies love to make eye contact, and eye gaze. Lots more engagement in play. AND in the video at 11:10 – we have our first puppy who is cleaning herself. This is…
