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.

Closer to Home Litter Five Week Update

The past week has brought marked changes in the puppies development. They are no longer walking with that wobbly baby walk, but are running and making little leaps. There is a lot of wrestling, a bit of howling at certain noises, and can see much better now. It is getting harder to sneak by them! They are intrigued with their Grandfather Ukko, though, he is not quite as enamored with them yet, and they are enjoying their playful Grandmother Reine. Their mother, Nukka, seems to be too busy making sure they are safe than to play with them.

Silver Hollow Litter Seven Week Update

Only one more week before all these beauties start to head out the door for their forever homes. They are really keeping their mom, Munjebel, and their human mom and dad very busy. As you can see, they have been able to enjoy a lot of outdoor time, and are interacting with each other, their mom, and humans in a big way.

Closer to Home Litter Four Week Update

Hard to believe these little ones are already four weeks old. They have started to adjust to their trips out into their yard, and have experienced cool days, hot and sunny days, and a tiny bit of rain, which they did not seem to notice at all. They are now starting to play with toys and interact on a much higher level. The puppies are starting to have a number of visitors and are reacting well with them. With each day comes a marked change in their behavior and ability to interact with their small world.

Silver Hollow Litter Six Week Update

The Silver Hollow Litter puppies have been enjoying their garden enclosure, especially with the string of better weather. As they have gotten rougher in their play, their mom has been letting them know when enough is enough. While they are eating food on their own, momma Munjebel, is sill allowing them to nurse.

Closer to Home Litter Three Week Update

 

CTH Wk3m

The Closer to Home pups have turned three weeks old today. Today marked their first full day in their bigger enclosure in the room that will give them access to an enclosed outside yard, maybe as soon as tomorrow. They may be still wobbly, but are moving around quite well. They are beginning to hear sounds, and can definitely see a little more clearly. They are just starting to show their individual personalities, and have discovered that the cat can only be pushed so far.
