If you’re getting a puppy out of the Torque x Friday litter, please click here and scroll down for some “homework” assignments. 🙂 There’s also a little blurb on puppy developments for the week.
Wednesday, November 5th:
The day started out with me hawking over the puppies in their box. Note: Their box is stuffed to the gills with stuffies and toys! Spoiled little ones, I tell ya.
Later in the evening, we hosted our first-ever “Weim Wine Wednesday” and had a few friends over. The purpose was twofold: 1) come play with puppies! and 2) come adopt one of the foster dogs I have available. It was a success on both counts as the foster dog went home with his new mom that night! Also, we might have had too much wine (J, Chateau St. Jean, and Justin, to name a few). At some point, the animals were dressed in their Halloween outfits… except for Halloween was a week ago…
During the day.
Later in the evening.
Thursday, November 6th:
Just a few photos in the kitchen.
Bonus shot: There’s always one askew puppy.
Friday, November 7th:
Puppies are monsters when it comes to eating food.
Everyone has a ravenous appetite.
To you, this is just a photo of a puppy pooping. But to me, this is a puppy (Monkey) who has figured out that he wants to potty OUTSIDE of his nest (the whelping box). Officially, this is Step # 1 of potty training.
Verifying we have solid poops.
Monkey again… just wandering outside his domain.
Saturday, November 8th:
Monkey, preferring to nest solo, outside of the whelping box… on the kitchen floor.
Big day today, I scooted the box to the kitchen door so the puppies would get some outdoor time in. No grass yet, just the patio.
Another shot of the circus in their domain.
Guess who’s outside all by himself? Yep, that would be Monkey.
Mamma Friday taking a break outside her domain.
We still have good poops!
Leaving a bowl of water outside on the patio at all times now.
A late afternoon view.
Probably don’t have to say which one’s outside… 🙂
I need to interrupt the puppy pics for a second to let you know that, in collaboration with Anne Taguchi of www.justweimaraners.com fame, we are working on a coffee table book that’s all about Weimaraners. We’re HOPING to get the pre-orders out before Christmas. Bonus: a bunch of Barrett dogs (including the Circus Seven) are featured!!! Well, only because I’m the editor. LOL.
Passed out puppies.
Another shot of my kitchen counter during the book editing process…
Monday, November 10th:
New ribbons! Listed in birth order: TeddyBear, Froggie, Elliephant, Monkey, Penguin, LadyBug, and BumbleBee.
We added a small crate to the box to encourage the crate training process.
Mamma Friday decided she wanted to be a part of that, too. Can you believe there are seven puppies plus Friday in there?!
Mealtime. Getting pretty dirty out there!
Piggies with their new collars.
Two pups tugging on a stuffie.
Tuesday, November 11th:
We went to Uncle Jerry’s house! More photos here.
