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.
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.
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.
