A Brindle Cane Corso Pup

This is the last one of Cricket’s pups I am babysitting while they are out of town.

He will be going to Connecticut next week by transport I have to get a health check at the vet for him to cross state lines.

I think his name is going to be Dallas he is 12 weeks old tomorrow.

He is very smart and knows commands to sit, come, and walks right beside you.

He is a very pretty brindle like his mom and has her big feet I hope he gets big like her. I love the stripes in the middle of his head it looks like his hair is parted.

Taking pictures of puppies is a lot of fun especially if they like to pose.

Dachshund Pups

Little Lady had her third litter of puppies every litter has been different.

The first litter was 3 pups, the second 4 pups, and this one 3 pups.

This is the first time all the pups have had red on them. Every time the pups are different but the last litter also had a red/white.

Cute pups that are 3 1/2 weeks old make the cutest pictures.

Daisy girl turns 9 years old

It seems like yesterday when we had this tiny little boxer we named Daisy.

Today she turns 9 years old.

She was an aggressive little pup and very opinionated. She hated long sleeves on anyone. The vet told us he thought whoever removed her dew claw and tail had long sleeves and they did a bad job on the dew- claw and probably hurt her.

We got her out of this stage and she became very playful loving to play fetch and jumping as high as she could and doing boxer acrobats. Then cooling off in her plastic pool like she was relaxing after a long hard day.

She still loves the Chunk It balls the orange one that is basically indestructible and she loves the big tug a war ball called the Jolly Ball.

She still talks to me when I talk directly to her and ask her questions lol. She loves a treat when she comes in from outside.

She sleeps more now and plays less but gets her energy spurts sometimes.

Pics with her ears like she’s flying I love and Jack says she’s the flying nun. She is still very photogenic and always has been.

Even though she’s a little bossy she will always be my Daisy Girl and I love her very much.

Happy 9th Birthday Daisy I hope someone gives you extra treats today lol.

Two-day old Pups with Mom

Here are Cricket and her 10 pups at two days old.

We ended up taking them to our daughter’s house in Livingston yesterday.

She’s much better at this puppy thing than I am and knows what to watch out for.

Last night she brought 3 in the house because they looked dehydrated she fed them several times in the night and once this morning they are doing great and will go back with mom. This is just for supplemental feeding the bigger pups will always push the little ones out of the way so you have to help them out.

Cricket’s biggest pups were two males they weighed in at 20.4 oz the smallest was a female at 13.9 oz.

Cricket 21- months old

Cricket is our 21-month-old Cane Corso she is a Brindle that is very tall has huge feet and weighs in around 150#’s.

She is eating 4 to 4 1/2 cups a day of a high protein food. The one we buy is 26% protein and 20% fat. I had to cut back on her food because she was getting fat right now she actually looks really good.

Cricket is the biggest female to be born at Shady Acres so far. I believe the biggest male is around 170#s.

There are people on the waiting list for a puppy out of her and she should be going into heat within the next month. This will be her first breeding and hopefully it will not be a huge litter.

She loves to run in the backyard and drink out of the birdbaths because they are just her height. Going on a walk and investigating the area outside of our yard is one of her favorite things to do.

When it is bedtime she gets 1 hour in the house and she drinks about 1 gallon of water gets her treats and in the kennel she goes for the night.

She loves attention and is great with the grandkids but when she starts running full speed towards you that is when you think you are going to be run over by a freight train. She will run straight at you and miss you by 1 – 2 inches this is part of her silly personality. There is nothing funnier than a 150# silly dog.

Never let the size of a dog intimidate you just because a dog is big does not mean they are mean.

Puppy update

The puppies are now 6 weeks old these pictures were taken at 5 week. They all have great personalities.

I make up pet names for all of them the first one is Curly Girl, the second Lucy, the third Stumpy, the fourth Chip. Stumpy is very short to the ground its just funny to see him run.

Lucy and Stumpy are both sold. She is keeping curly girl and Chip is being DNA tested to see what color pups he would throw he is the only male of the bunch. You can get a dogs DNA tested for $150.00.

The puppies mom Little Lady went home with our daughter and kids a few days ago we had started weening prior to this and they were only with mom at nighttime. I am feeding them food 3 x a day and they are drinking water really good. They love the grass and trying to run in it. They like to bite and chew on each other just to hear each other cry. The wrestle, play and love to be petted on. Curly girl rolls over for a tummy rub.

Taking care of this batch of pups has been fun but I would not want to do it all the time it is a lot of work cleaning up after puppies and keeping their area sterilized.

Zoee has taken on the job of the surrogate mom babysitting them on the back porch while they are in their handmade play pen area.

These pups are using the puppy pads in both locations as well as potting in the grass when outdoors.

These pups have been a good change of pace from the everyday routine of staying home and out of the general public.

Life is good and puppies make me smile.

3 week old pups

The pups are now 3 weeks old.

When I turn the light on in the morning they all stand up in the box and look at me with wagging tails.

Then I say ” Good morning Puppies” and they all start whining lol.

This batch of puppies is so cute but so different than litter #1.

Little Ladies pups

Little lady and the Tramp had their 2nd litter of miniature long hair Dachshunds pups a few weeks ago.

I have been babysitting her and the pups since our daughter and her family moved. They have no place for pups at the moment.

Just like last time she had quite the varieties of colors. She ended up with a few piebalds and a dapple this time as well as black and tan. The dapple is the brown one and his spots make him look like a chocolate chip. She is considering keeping the gray/ black piebald on the end we call this one Fatty.

Sweet little puppies all colors and sizes are just to cute for words.

Mr. Bird

Mr. Bird was posing while sunning on the side deck so I had to grab a picture.

It is pretty easy to get a good picture of him because he likes to relax, stretch out and sun. Sometimes he rolls over like a dog when you call his name so I got lucky this time he did not do that.

Mr. Bird still looks young even though he is 12 years old.

Animals bring such joy to your life its a very special thing.

Zoee turned three

Miss. Zoee turned three years old on Monday.

She finally hit 53#s and is looking really good I think last year she was around 37#s.

Still a snuggle bug wanting under your covers and maybe laying in your lap.

She loves the outdoors and would rather spend her time outside than inside even in the heat.

Zoee is a very happy boxer dog loves to meet and jump on everyone she sees that hyper butt has not gotten any better.
