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 #27

So these nuggets are now getting nursed with Mama Beetz standing up during the day, and only laying down to nurse at night when she is sleeping with them. Standing up she seems much more comfortable, and they are now big enough where they can squat on their hind quarters, hold on to her with…

DAY #25

Well Mama Beetz was nursing her dawn patrol crew while I was getting their breakfast ready. Everyone was super content this morning, the whole household actually. The plate of raw whole chicken, ground fine, raw goats milk, and diatomaceous earth went down, and all seven came over and started to snarf it up. Remarkably at…

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 #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…

DAY #18

Well today we had the first social tail-wags. There have been tail wags for milk, for Mama, for potty – but today the first for social greeting, to me and to the other pups. The first growls. The first paw on the head. The first sleeping apart in little micro groups. So many firsts today….

DAY #16

Waking up is a bit like the best birthday present morning ever. We have a bed in the kennel room, and I sleep here during unique, special, or really anytime I want to spend more time with my dogs in the evenings. This bed is super well used during firework season, which is still happening…

DAY #13

Their eyes opened last night. They are now eliminating on their own, all over. They are trying to move towards what the see, hear, and smell. These yummy pups are more vocal now because they can now hear, see, smell what they want to access. Since they can see each other now, they are sucking…

DAY #12

Well jeepers creepers, where’d you get those peepers … My friend came over this evening to visit with the puppies and when she got here the puppies eyes started to open, just like that. They now have sight for the first time. Which means they can now also hear. When Mama Beetz steps into the…

DAY #10

Good Morning! Well I have a chance to post earlier than usual today, during daylight at least. The big little milk chunks are doing so super well. Both Mama and pups are hitting their groove and it is getting smoother each day. Evening is now a content time, as is through the night. Because Mama…
