Another Update

The more updates I post, the more updates I get! ūüėÄ #NewStrategy¬†I just got another one from Rio down in Florida. He looks so much like his mama, just more white. His family has him groomed so handsomely. His owners say that Rio “loves to cuddle and watch tv!¬† He loves to take long walks and smell everything in his path while protecting his mom! He is a great watch dog and enjoys playing fetch with us!”

Week 8 Photos

Yes. Eight weeks old! It seems like just a week ago that I was saying that the puppies were already 7 weeks old… well, I guess it was just a week ago. Two puppies spoken for, one already adopted, only two still available (yes, Danny and Hudson are still available if you’re¬†interested!)…. My time with my sweet puppies is coming to a close.

But the pups are now at the perfect age to bond with you and your family! They’re old enough that they can go right home with you if you pick one you want–no more down-payment-to-reserve necessary!

And now for this week’s photos. Due to a back cold/flu, I didn’t spend much time taking pictures today, and only got a few good. But I like the ones I got. The contrasting colors of the white puppies versus the green grass versus the red geraniums make really eye-appealing photos. Enjoy!

You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but Rio does have a playful streak in him!

This photo gives a little insight into Rio’s saucy side.

Danny again. He can look into your eyes and know exactly what you’re thinking.

Week 7 Photos

Hi there! Alright, now for the traditional “Can you believe the puppies are already….” Here goes: Can you believe the puppies are already seven weeks old! My! You’d think I’d be able to come up with a better introduction than that! Hmmm…. How about, can you believe that you’ll get to bring your puppy home with you in just a week!!!!!!!! Wow! Now that caught your attention!

Before this week’s photos, however, I must give you an update on the puppies’ schedule. First, we are not crating the puppies at night anymore–it is just too hot for all 5 of them to be packed in the enclosed crate. Don’t worry–initial potty training has continued despite this setback. We are putting the puppies in a much roomier, plastic¬†doghouse half (the bottom half–the top is removed) down in our cool basement. They have more room to spread out in there and to breath.¬†We keep them on their potty schedule, so¬†they are still learning to keep their blanket clean.

The change in schedule comes from the fact that the pups¬†are now able to handle 5 hours between potty breaks, and I’m so happy, as this works into my schedule just perfectly!

The Schedule:
4:00¬†–¬†Morning potty break, back inside
6-7:00 – Breakfast (no potty break yet)
9:00 –¬†Potty break and grass dry–outside for the day
2:00 –¬†Potty break & playtime
7:00 –¬†Potty break & supper
9:00 – Sundown, last quick potty break, and inside for the night.
If needed: 12-1:00 am Potty break (however, last night, the puppies made it from 9:00 all the way to 4:00 just fine!)

Now, for our feature presentation: “Five Puppies, One Kong.”

Run, Rio, run!
