Closer to Home Litter Eight Week Update

The Closer to Home pups are eight weeks old today. While the story is coming to a close here, their lives are just beginning. They start to go home tomorrow with their forever families all across the country. They are blossoming into fabulous pups, each with their own way. We have explored new places on the property, gone to the chiropractor for experience and adjustments, and tried to get their grandpa’s attention. Here they are one more time for this weekly post.

Closer to Home Litter Seven Week Update

It is hard to believe that these puppies are seven weeks old and will start to go to their forever homes in just one week. They have had a lot of visitors, young and old, and have done very well with all of them. They have had individual explorations outside of their yard and away from their pack. Though, a little nervous at first, all have done very well with that, and even handled meeting the resident chickens and rooster. They have also graduated to regular collars, so some of them are in new colors. More interesting experiences are scheduled for their final week here.

Closer to Home Litter Six Week Update

Six weeks have gone by for these pups, and they are turning into little dogs with personalities all their own. Today we went to the vet for their first vaccinations and to receive their microchips. They handled the visit very well, and many slept through most of it. More visitors have been coming and going, and they are proving to be very social.

Silver Hollow Litter Eight Week Update

This pack of five turned eight weeks old yesterday, and two have gone to their forever homes with great new Chinook owner families. Olderbark and Willow have started their new adventures, while the rest of the pack and momma Munjebel (and humans) adjust to their absence. It has been quite a ride for Munjebel’s mom and dad, Robin and Andy, and they have done a stellar job helping Munjebel to raise these fine puppies.
