Elsa‘s puppies are four weeks old! They are becoming more and more active, starting to play with each other and Interacting more with us. They enjoy people time, but are still very focused on Elsa. They are eating kibble a few times a day now, but mama is still in their pen regularly to nurse. Once they are completely weaned, they begin bonding to humans, a natural transition. We are continuing to work on sound desensitization and lots of socialization. Challenging them daily with new experiences. They‘re introduced to a crate this week, gate stays open, non threatening. Eventually we will graduate to individual crate training where they are alone and apart from their litter. (That will be the hard part)
As they get more mobile, the group photos start to get harder!
The puppies are 3 weeks old now and doing wonderful. What a difference a week makes! They are up on all fours walking and even starting to play with each other now that eyes are opened. They have completed the Bio-Sensor program and it has done its job. They are so calm and relaxed, not jumpy or squirmy when picked up. We're starting sound desensitizing as they can hear now. Everyone continues to eat well. Some size differences are becoming more apparent. Lamby, who was the smallest has caught up to her siblings, and Monkey is now the little one in the group.
Moosey, Monkey, Foxy, Birdy, Wolfy, Lamby, Bunny, and Beary.
The Cute Cuddly Crew is 2 weeks old today! They continue to gain weight daily, they are becoming more active too! We are starting to see them stand up on all fours as they are getting ready to walk! Noses and foot pads are continuing to darken. They still cant see but eyes are starting to open. Lamby was the first to open her eyes, Beary was right behind her, the rest will follow soon. Hearing will come at around 3 weeks. These babies are getting cuter by the day, lots of nice markings on many of them. The Cute Cuddly Crew is the Cutest!!!

The Cute Cuddly Crew is 1 week old today! Mama continues to do a wonderful job! Her pups are gaining weight daily, so strong they are already scooting about the pin. We are continuing with the Bio-Sensor program, giving them daily holding time, and lots of massages. We are getting them comfortable with being held and cuddled. Noses and foot pads are starting to darken. Lots of eating and sleeping for now. Eyes and ears still closed, we will be watching for eyes to open later in the week.

The Cute Cuddly Crew are 3 days old today. We have started with the bio-sensor program which will make for healthier more resilient puppies. Weight differences become more apparent as the puppies get a little older (around 5 weeks) we will keep a close eye on that and update. Many have white markings, we won't know if they will stand out or blend in until their coats start to fill in a bit more. Overall everyone is doing great. Mama is doing her job as all pups are eating well and thriving. We will post individual photos with our 1 week update.
These girls are a bit bigger than their sisters. Birdy has a white marking on her head (it almost looks like a little heart.) Foxy is the darkest in the group with a small white marking on her head.
These boys are the bigger boys. Both great eaters. Wolfy is the lightest colored in the group. Both boys have white markings on their heads.
These are our smaller boys such little sweet hearts. Monkey has some lighter markings on his head.
Our smaller girls are as sweet as can be. (Lamby has a small white marking on her head)
We have decided to call these guys our "Cuddly Litter"
