The Havanese are growing steadily! They have started eating solid foods and they were not quite sure what they think of it at first but now they are eagerly waiting for their meals. Smudge has started the weaning process and only allows them to nurse a few time a day. They love playtime with their "big" brothers and sisters. We supervise them carefully so no one gets to rambunctious, they love cuddle time! Sorry I uploaded the wrong feeding photo and it won't let me delete it.

Puppies are growing like weeds. They all weigh between 6 1/2 and 7 1/2 pounds! They have started on solid foods and they love it! Freyja has started the weaning process and is feeding them only a few times a day. We have started the housetraining process and they are so smart and are catching on very quickly doing their "business" outside. Their indoor area has been changed to give all the puppies more room.

The puppies are five weeks old now, and they are coming alive! Up until now, Smudge (mom) has done the majority of the work. Feeding and cleaning the puppies and doing a great job. Now the tables are turning, they are starting to eat solid food, and they want to explore everything around them. Not to mention they have turned into pooping machines. It is now my turn to feed and clean up after them. Thankfully they are using the pee pad consistently so clean up is not too bad. They love playtime out of their pen and love to run around, I'm thankful I have 2 teenagers that help me keep track of them. I ran out of time to take individual pictures, now that the kids are out of school I hope they will help with a photo shoot. Here are a couple of pictures from this week.

The Barbet puppies were not as cooperative as the Havanese. I waited until they were tired to take the pictures, but they woke up in no time.

The Havanese puppies are steadily growning, they are playing with each other and with their toys. They are responding to human voices and come running for cuddles and tickles. They were "Super Models" on the "red" carpet in yesterdays photo shoot.

Barbet puppies are growin like weeds! They are barking, playing and climbing out of the box on a regular basis. I started supplementing them with solid food, but they seemed to get a bit constipated so I will wait a few more days before we try again. I have my first full day off tomorrow in 2 weeks I hope to get caught up in individual photos.

The puppies are becoming active and starting to play with each other and with Mom. They are starting to use the pee pads, such smart puppies. They are spending more and more time out of the whelping box. They are interested in toys and try to play with them. I have a video I will try to upload.
The video is not loading. I will keep trying. But if you go onto the youtube web site and search out LosSombra you may find it.

Puppies are growing like weeds, they have all opened their eye and are starting to toddle around the box. Their colours are changing daily, I think only one girl and one boy may stay white and black.

The Barbet puppies were 2 weeks old on Saturday. They are all starting to open their eyes and are becoming more mobile. It is getting harder to get good pictures of them. They are over 2 pounds now.

The Barbet puppies are 10 days old and will soon be opening their eyes to see the world for the first time. All the puppies love to be cuddled.
Puppy cuddling is a family affair.

The Havanese puppies are now one week old. They are all close to doubling their birth weight. Smudge is a great mom.
Some cuddle time with the Barbet puppies!

The Havanese puppies are all steadily gaining weight and doing great. It is not easy to get good pictures they are constantly moving!

All puppies are doing well and gaining steadily. Freyja is a wonderful first time Mom. Since the puppies were born on Rembrance Day we gave them names based on Rembrance Day. The boys: Patriot, Sailor, Soldier and Trooper. The girls: Poppy and Vimy.
In this picture from the top in red - Sailor, orange - Poppy, yellow - Vimy, green Patriot, blue - Soldier and purple - Trooper
