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 #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…

DAY #36

Today was a new developmental as well as learned shift in behavior with resources. We had communal sharing of bones, bones on the ground, puppies freely walking around, and no resource guarding. Every day for a week now, we have bone chewing time in the afternoon after lunch time and before nursing. Today the feeling…

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 #34

Well we started today with a big yummy breakfast and then introduced lamb ribs. So a new protein and a new bone to chew on. They all did super well, and they all L.O.V.E.D. the lamb. I took some of the meat of the bones and folded it into their food, they loved that big…

DAY #33

I am asked about play all of the time – ‘how do you play with these new puppies?’ We do not play with them at all, just like we don’t play with our newborn goat kids. Goats can get wildly inappropriate with people if they are teased, played with, or allowed to chase people in…

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
