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.
The boxer dogs are doing fine and seem to do quite well putting up with Cricket.
Daisy can get a little sassy sometimes when she gets aggravated at Crickets rough play.
Zoee goes with the flow shes easy going and laid back.
I snapped these pics Saturday while we were in the backyard with Karina and Sophia they were picking up crawdad mounds. It’s a lot easier for the little ones to do all that bending over than it is for us. We did not count but I am figuring since they dumped their bags 5 times there were at least 250 mounds that they picked up.
Zoee seems to think the girls belong to her if they are laying on the rug in the den she is right beside them. If they are in our room watching tv so is she where ever they are she is right there with them.
The beauty of boxer dogs in natural light enjoying the day and they did not even realize they needed to pose.
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.
Cricket our Cane Corso pup turned 6 months old on August 2nd.
She is starting obedience training on August 10th. This lady will come to our home 2 x per week and work on all her commands and teach her to act like a well-behaved lady.
She is very smart and seems to pick up stuff really fast so I really think this training should work out well for her.
She starts training indoors, then we move to the yard where there are some distractions. As the weeks go on we will move to the park where there are lots of people & distractions. A dog has to be able to focus on commands in all situations.
I feel like she’s probably a 100#s now she grows really fast.
I ordered her an XL kennel and she can stand up in it and sprawl out so this one should be the perfect size for her to sleep in at night. Her collars are 23″ I just bought two new ones for her.
The plastic kiddie pools are not lasting so I think its time we get a galvanized stock tank. I found one that is 2 ft wide x 4 ft long x 1 ft deep for $90.00. Sometimes I catch her in the pool sitting up cooling off and asleep lol.
I will post an update on Cricket’s training during the next month.
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.
