The puppies turned 3 weeks yesterday and I was able to get their portraits done today. They have gone to a whole new level in cuteness and personalities. Their eyes are open and they look at me when I come into the room. They are beginning to play and wrestle and even bark and growl. I am falling in love with them more every day. This is the dangerous part when it comes to raising pups. I know in my heart that I am only raising them for other families but I can’t help letting them into my heart. They are so precious. Every day I hold them and tell them they are loved and special. I think they believe that now. I am still not sleeping much as they are still up several times a night, but it is worth it to cuddle them in the whelping box and hear their sweet puppy grunts as they struggle for the perfect sleeping spot.
Here are the pups in their original birth order.
Light Blue little girl is so sweet. She is always willing to be held and kissed. She always takes the opportunity to kiss my nose and I pick her up. She was perfect for her portrait.
Purple collar girl is a cuddle bug. She never fusses about being picked up and snuggled. She is curly and deep red with soulful brown eyes. She reminds me of her mommy.
Oh my goodness Red collar boy is a squnch-muffin. That’s not a real word but you get it. He is super curly and has the bluest eyes. He loves to be held. Love him.
Royal blue boy has been a star in this littler because of his markings and his quirky little personality. He is the smallest of the litter but is catching up with his daily bottle feeding. He is precious and so laid back.
Green collar girl is also very curly. She comes to the front of the group to be picked up and loved. She has a piece of my heart.
Yellow collar boy is so special. He is so sweet. His little face gets me every time. What a darling boy.
Orange collar boy is also stealing the show on my instagram. He is always the one found sleeping on his back. He is my chunky monkey.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, the adult dogs have been enjoying their summer.
Winter is due in 3 weeks and we are so excited about her first litter!
Katie came over and cuddled the pups for me.
Tune in this coming week for more updates!
