Birth Announcement

The babies started arriving at 10:08am
on July 2nd.  They came at a slow and
steady pace with the last one arriving
shortly after 4pm.  Mother and babes are
all doing well.  There are 10 puppies in
the litter, 4 girls and 6 boys.







1 Week Update

At the age of 1 week, the pups are all doing
very well and gaining weight nicely.  Arya is
a devoted mother as is typical of our girls.  
The puppies do not open their eyes until the
age of 2 weeks. Their ears do not open until
they are 3 weeks.  Their sense of smell is
how they explore their world in the
beginning.  I begin holding and massaging
the puppies from day 1 and allowing them to
smell by breath and be nestled against my
chest.   




2 Weeks - Update

The puppies all are growing very nicely.
Most of their eyes were open on their 2 week
birthday.  The pups are used to being held
now and snuggle contentedly against me
after their daily weight check.









3 Weeks - Update

The puppies are all doing very well.  Their
ears open at 3 weeks so they are hearing
sounds for the first time now.  They have
started sitting up.  In the coming week, the
pups will start taking a few steps and playing
with their litter-mates.  They will start eating
solid food in the coming week.  The pups will
move out of the nursery into the living room
playpen crate.






4 Weeks - Update

The puppies moved out of the nursery into
the playpen crate in the living room.  They
started eating solid food twice a day and are
enjoying it very much.  Arya is spending
some time away from them but is still very
devoted and is nursing them throughout the
day.  They had their first bath and blow-dry.  
They also had their first grooming
experience on the table.  Their faces and feet
were shaved and they had their nails
clipped.  Everyone handled it well.



5 Weeks - Update

The pups are all doing well.  They will be
completely weaned from Mom over the next
week to 10 days.  At this age, their teeth are
very sharp but Arya does not seem to mind
and must have a higher tolerance for pain
than most of our girls.  She continues to
happily nurse them.  I will increase their
solid food time from 2 times daily to 3 times
and have her leave the playpen crate for
longer periods of time.  They are receiving
their 2nd bath and blow dry.




6 Weeks - Update

The pups are all doing well.  They are
completely weaned from Mom now.  They
have begun playing in the kitchen and enjoy
the toys and big play area.  They went to the
vet for their first check up and puppy
vaccination.  They have begun going outside
for potty and playtime.  Naps during the day
are being taken in their individual crates.
They have begun eating from individual
bowls in their crates.  They are still sleeping
together in the playpen crate overnight.



7 Weeks - Update

Everyone is growing well.  I am working with
this group on "sit", "come front" and
"hello"(shaking paw).  They very much enjoy
the peanut butter treats that come with
training.  They began sleeping overnight in
their individual crates in preparation for
joining their families.







8 Weeks - Update

The puppies outside training continues to go
well.  They are going outside first thing in
the morning and then several times
throughout the day.  Eleanor joined her
family on her 8 week birthday.  Hank will be
joining his family next week-end.  We are
expecting some of the pups to join their
families over the upcoming Holiday
Weekend.
