Three and a half weeks old and when they see people here they come for some attention wagging their tails.
I love that their colors are all so different. Our daughter has studied genetics and understands this a lot more than I do. The colors of the mom and dad produce the colors you end up with. I think her combination seems to be working out well because all these colors are beautiful.
I think our grandkids have spoiled these little cuties. Yesterday they were holding them wrapped in towels while they were watching tv. The towels were in case they happened to pee on them lol.
Little Lady was so big I honestly thought she had 5 pups in there. Last Tuesday she finally had 3 pups.
Two of them are quite rare the black one is a full piebald tuxedo this one is a female. The multicolored brown is a shaded red OR a chocolate-based red it is a male it depends on the nose color and that changes a bit. The brown is a solid chocolate female.
They weighed .85, .80 and .65 on day 6 Monday morning. Not even 1 pound yet lol.
They are AKC registered miniature long haired Dachshunds.
These pictures were taken on Sunday I was using a metal bed Jack had made me to use in newborn pictures and a wooden barbie doll bed my dad had made.
The joy of fuzzy little puppies make everyone happy.
For her 9 month adventure she ate a 3 year old crepe myrtle tree and a remote control for the tv. No worries the batteries were still in the remote.
You have to be on your toes all the time with this young lady.
It was not like she did not have large balls, small balls, toys, full size tires, large sticks, ropes and a place to dig along with a water tank, swimming pool and large rocks she moves all around the yard to chew on.
Just when you think you have enough chew things in the yard for her she decides to find something new.
Cane Corso puppies are a great deal of fun but they need constant entertainment if not boredom catches up to them and they ruin something you wanted to keep. My knockout roses are in a large raised square bed that had large wooden round orbs on each corner. She ate the orbs that were bigger than her mouth.
Everything they eat when they are bored tends to be something that is not intended for dogs.
I will be so glad when this puppy stage is over for the big headed Cricket.
Shady Acres Rosharon should be having puppies in mid December from Raven and Zelda both Cane Corso’s Females are bred. There has been a list of people waiting for months for the next batch of puppies that have already put down deposits.
Mako bred both the females this was the first time for him to be the stud since he was 19 months old. He is the Formentino (dark beige color) male she got as a puppy that has the best personality.
I am still guessing her weight to be about 115#s. Hopefully we can get by the vet or Petsmarts scale soon.
She is still growing and her appetite is increasing.
We wake up around 4 -5:00 a.m. and its doggie potty time. By 5:30 a.m. Crickets whining and moaning for breakfast. Daisy and Zoee do not do this but Cricket is very vocal with her opinions.
Cricket gets 3 cups dry food plus one heaping tablespoon of canned mixed up with 1/8 cup water 2 x a day. She does the same moaning and whining for evening food around 4:00 p.m.
Zoee and Daisy get 1 1/2 cups 2 x a day mixed with water and the heaping tablespoon of canned food.
Daisy had to go back on her Iiams dog food but now she is on healthy weight version. She was getting to be square no curves lol. I think the other food is to high or protein for her at her age. She is easy going so the transition went just fine.
Jeanelle and I read about dry food causing bloat so now our dogs get it mixed with a little water usually about 1/8 cup water seems to be working out well for everyone.
The dogs have been enjoying the cooler weather and seem to be spending more time outdoors that is a good thing for Cricket and Zoee who are always rowdy and wrestling.
Daisy is calmer and prefers to be where we are she likes keeping an eye on us.
We take turns letting the dogs walk down the road with us and they all enjoy that. It is a disaster to take all 3 at the same time.
We switched everyone to the martingale collars I like the design it slips over their head and tightens if they are pulling on a leash. Since our dogs do not wear collars full time they get so excited to see the collar and leash and start doing jumping flips. The collars come in different widths and Crickets is the wider one the boxers the narrow one. I found ours on Amazon they had some nice aztec patterns.
Life is good in our 3 dog family we just go through a lot of dog food with Crickets appetite.
I wanted a picture of the 3 girls together & this was the best I could get it is hard posing 3 dogs at the same time.
They all know the sit command quite well and in this picture, they were waiting for a treat looking like little soldiers. I did not pose them in size order they did that.
The second picture I like the way they posed themselves but Crickets ear is inside out lol but Daisy and Zoee are grinning.
Seeing the dog’s faces when a Chewy Order comes in is priceless. I think they smell the snacks. Daisy always wants to open the box. Last week I had a chewy order for $65.00 and it was just treats and toys.
Dogs make our lives better and the more you have the better you’ll feel.
Zoee is two years old today she is one of our two boxer dogs.
Happy Birthday Miss Zoee.
She is just as hyper as she was at 5 months old when we got her.
Of the 3 dogs, she is the one who is always running, jumping, and hopping all day long.
She lives to run like a greyhound across the yard making tight turns and leaving the other two in her dust in the 1/2 acre back yard.
You can not water your plants with her in the yard because she loves to get the spray of the hose and you spend all your time playing with her.
We love our Zoee she is the sweetest boxer dog shes a snuggler and a lightweight compared to the other two.
She was a great addition to our family as a companion for Daisy and she has been great playing with Cricket and teaching her tricks of the trade. All 3 dogs get along great probably because they are all 3 females.
She was not cooperating for her photo session so hopefully more pics soon.
Dogs will put a smile on your face and find a special place in your heart but most of all they will change your life forever.
