DAY #37

Good Morning! We all woke up, all of us in a super good mood and playful. It is sunny and soon to be in the 30’s. We opened the kennel windows for crisp morning clean air and it felt so good! Last night my husband and I sat in the romper room and let the…

DIY RAW PUPPY AND DOG FOOD

Rhumb did all of the work for the first three plus weeks, nursing her puppies when they were hungry, which was about every two hours. There is no recipe for that other than feeding the Mama Dog as much as she wants whenever she wants, so she in turn can feed her pups. RAW FED…

DAY #63 – SNOW MORNING

Our two playground players, who invented all of the best games for everyone, went to their new homes yesterday, and it left Massimo, Pork Chop, and Mama Beetz at a bit of a loss. We had a very off night, edgy, and unsettled. Rhumb wanted into their romper room at about 4:30am this morning just…

DAY #61- #62 – photos and owner’s puppy bags

Each of our puppy owners will go home with a starter bag of everything I use for the puppies, plus my DIY raw food mix, frozen in patties that should last for the first 4-6 days during transition time. My gift to both the new owners, and the little Sexy Beasts I love so much….

DAY #60 – life in motion

We have been chasing sunshine around our yard all morning, literally. Just when it feels warm enough, and awesome enough, a cloud will come in, the temperature drops, and droplets of rain here and there, and then patches of sun come through again. Not a bad game for puppies in the yard who are learning…

DAY #58 – because it all happens so quickly

Okay time is going by way to quickly. We are just hitting our stride with a good routine, and the puppies are coming into their own and seem to live by the postal service creed “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers Sexy Beasts from the swift completion of their…

DAY #57 – Rainy Day

We are on a natural weaning course right now. Rhumb is engaging the pups in more and more play, and they are looking to their Mama for more and more play, but I think when Rhumb becomes milk full, she really wants to nurse them to relieve that pressure. For example, none of the pups…

DAY #56 – FULL MUDDY YARD DAY!

Well it was time, I unlocked the patio gates and off they went. These little Sexy Beasts were ready for the yard, and all it has to offer, and then some. Running, dirt eating, grass grazing, more running, and then the ultimate pirate booty, Story’s old cow bone. They found that bone and their day…

DAY #55 – The Puppy Den of Iniquity

We have growls, barks, moos, garoos, mounting, stand overs, chasing, rolling, mouthing, cleaning each others genitals, carcass eating, tug, and some super satiated puppies. Every day they are trying out their new canine skills, what works and what doesn’t, and between each other and Mama Rhumb, they are developing some pretty cool social skills, puppy…

DAY #53 – stairs and fish ladders

Today was ‘introduce stairs’ day. The weather was not cooperating with my plans this morning. But it did give us some time to think about how we wanted to introduce the outside stairs to the puppies, that would give them an additional area to romp in during the day. We fenced in the side railings,…
