Wrapping Up Week One

The pups had several visitors this week ending with the Andersons and their brood and the Reinerts. Jinks is figuring out that no on really wants to eat them so she is relaxing more when people con visit.
They are growing fast! As soon as I get it plugged into Excel I'll post a chart with their weight gain. Suffice it to say they eat more than Jinks at this point.

Eyes and ears should be opening soon. 10 - 14 days typically. Last night they were a noisy bunch squeaking and squealing all night long. I don't think Jinks or I got much good sleep. Of course now they are quiet as mice!

Fun and Games!

The puppies are here! The puppies are here! On June 15th from 0210 to 0552  Jinks delivered 7 perfect little red pups. 5 males and 2 females. The Fun and Games babies have the following names(along with how I remember):

Bingo -blue male ("B"lue="B"ingo)
Rover -red male (Red Rover, Red Rover, send Pam right over!)
Tag -green male (Tag is played out on the green grass)
Checkers -black male (Checkers pieces are black)
Pattycake - pink female ("P"ink = "P"attycake)
Cricket - yellow female (I guess baby crickets are yellow)
Simon - lt blue male (it just is 😉)

Jinks has been the perfect momma dog.  She is very attentive but calm and relaxed especially for a first time mom.

So what have we done in our first 6 days: Nails trimmed twice. Visitors 8 times. Daily weighing, Eat. Eat. Eat. Sleep. Sleep. Sleep. Their eyes and ears wont start to open until they are 10 - 14 days old. Their scenting ability in amazing as they can find Jinks in the box with no difficulty at all. They are noisy little beasts but also very sweet!

Last Night As a Whole Litter

Tonight is their last night together so I'm letting them sleep together one last time. Even Pixie wanted to join in on the action and usually she sleeps upstairs. That part is very sad to me.  The good thing for them is that after this weekend they will all start their new lives and be a part of their new family causing chaos and destruction away from my house!  Really though, I will miss them as Rhoda has also. They have had a pretty quiet night.  Iris now Harmony went for a sleepover and came back in the evening.  Hesta, now Seeker, also went for a sleep over and is back.  Luna, now Jinks, had a visit for a few hours in the evening.  Tomorrow they may go back to sleeping separately.

These smarties have started running into their crates when food is around.  They don't stay very  long so I have to be quick to get a bowl in and the door shut but I was very surprised that the behavior was offered. This past week we have been busy with visits, going to the park, and play play playing!  I've posted several videos on my youtube site and have some of the pictures below.

 They went to the vet and saw our favorite Dr. Joanne Buehner,  Friends Lisa and Rick were there too.  Rick had his new Saluki pup, Siri, born two days after the puppies.
