W8 Random Group

Wow, how did they get to be 8 weeks old already! They have been very lucky to have had such great weather, and enjoy a lot of time romping outside. They continue to be a popular attraction with many visitors helping to get them used to many sizes and ages of people. They are in for a big change this coming weekend, when they will meet their forever families and make their way to their new homes. Tune in again next week as we wish them well. In the meantime, enjoy this weekly post.

The Natural Wonders Litter Turns 7 Weeks Old

The puppies are obviously eating well, because they are growing like weeds, with two of the girls leading the pack in size. Go Bona and Regal! They continue to have many visitors of all sizes, and had an especially big weekend, and were able to take advantage of the glorious weather. They have really enjoyed the visitors and all the attention. They are continuing with their clicker training and are eager to please.

The Natural Wonders Litter is 6 Weeks Old

The puppies have received many visitors this past week, including a couple of toddlers, who they were very interested in. They are learning some commands with clicker training and responding very well to that. We are finding out which ones are food-motivated! Some reinforcements were made to their outdoor enclosure to foil the little escape artists in the group. Grays is now sporting a hot pink collar instead of her old and drab gray one.

The Natural Wonders Litter is 5 Weeks Old

The puppies are enjoying a lot of time outside and in their expanded indoor area. They are really enjoying their real food, and not depending on mom much at all now, much to the relief of Kala. She still worries and fusses over them a great deal, however. They are receiving regular visitors, young and old, and responding extremely well to that. They are starting to enjoy toys, wrestling with each other, and readily greet visitors. Two blue-eyed wonders have a appeared in the group, each with one blue eye. Can you tell which ones they are?

The Natural Wonders Litter Turns 4 Weeks Old

 

These nine siblings are really starting to move around, making it a challenge for their two-legged mom to get good photos of them. It’s a good thing they are getting better at eating their gruel, because mom is becoming wary of their developing teeth! They have moved into bigger digs and are learning to potty in the right place. There was a brief taste of the great outdoors today, but thunderstorms put an end to that. They have also now had several sets of visitors, which they enjoyed.

The Natural Wonders Litter Turns Three Weeks Old

These nine pups have begun to play with each other in earnest, and are starting to interact with their human caretakers. They have learned to lap up a little goats milk, and are learning that their potty area is away from the bed area. They have moved out of their whelping box and into an X-pen, where they are exploring the toys, and getting on and off the beds with increased ease. There are bells hanging on their pen that they are learning to ring, something enjoyed in particular by Bona. It is getting hard to keep track of their daily changes and growth.

The Natural Wonders Litter is Two Week Old

The puppies are really starting to grow now, and reveal their individual personalities. They have had their first nail trimming, and will soon be walking. There are no more seal slides as they make their way around their box, instead little wobbly attempts to get up on all fours. Enjoy these photos and watch their progress!

The Natural Wonders Litter Turns One Week Old

Their growth is now starting to take off. They are a very vocal and active bunch,
making conformation testing and photography a challenge. Individual personalities are already starting to show. Momma Kala is a very doting and attentive mom. It seems to be the moment she has been waiting for.
