Blondie spent a lovely mother’s day with her surrogate kids in the pool and a tanning session. Here she and Danica are enjoying the rays.
We knew that it was only a matter of time before I caved in and named a litter of puppies after Disney characters. Well, today was that day. Before you get all excited, there are 7 pure black ones that we cannot tell apart yet….so before we get collars, the name game is just a list.
We have one chocolate in the mix and another with coon hound markings. Those two are clearly the leaders and not shy at all.
If you have been following my blog for any period of time, you’ll know that we love themed names and we had some doozies.
But, being that we are quickly approaching 900 puppy fosters now, I have dropped into the 7th pit of hell and named them after Disney characters. I’m not proud of what I have done.
With that said, I got this litter on Saturday…6 girls, 3 boys= 9 total.
They are quite vocal and have LOTS of energy. On Saturday they were separated from their mom and were quite shy and timid. They would not come near us when we had social time that night. This is going to be fun…..
But, the very next day, they livened up and came running to play…..and bite toes. Damn do they bite toes.
Normally our introduction to being a water dog includes me grabbing one that comes too close to the pool and forcing them to sink or swim with me.
No, no…..not these little water bugs.
I let them out back, watched them run around on the grass and then went to go grab something.
Next thing I know, I hear several splashes and run over to see multiple puppies in the pool and going to the steps and getting out.
They kept jumping in the pool and would swim to the steps. Rinse, lather, repeat. Quite the sight.
One would get in and the others would stand near the edge and bark them on. “you can do it!”.
They are all about 7-8 weeks old at this point and are ready to go to their new homes. Very pretty, sweet and have lots of puppy energy. I would recommend someone who is a tad more patient and/ or dog savvy for these guys. Meet and greets start ASAP.
