25 December – Christmas puppies
Puppy activity centre
21 December – the puppies and I enjoyed some time under the trees today.
Hazel is a good mum and is still giving the puppies a drink in the morning and evening. Best watched with volume on for full effect.
17 December – the puppies did some crate training this evening. Once they started winding down from playtime, most of them were in the crates already and I added the doors. This caused about 5 minutes of fussing and then they all fell asleep. This is after about 30 minutes when the doors were removed.
Bit out of order – on 12 December the puppies had their first vet visit for health checks, vaccinations and microchipping. The puppies were a big hit and lots of the nurses came in for a visit. Kay made the New Plymouth Vet Group’s Instagram with their vet Gemma.
14 December – moved to a different area outside. Set up a ramp for them to explore but they also enjoyed crawling through the garden mesh I put down to keep them out of a hole Amber had dug.
13 December – outside play time. It’s a bit long but there was a variety of play going on among different groups of puppies.
The puppies can now climb over the white barrier so we have to totally close the xpen door now. Since she can no longer jump over the white barrier, Hazel has put her agility training to good use and jumps up on and off the wire crate to get in with them. Here she is just using it to keep a close eye on lunch time. Grover is at the front of the picture and Floyd is at the water bowl.
12 December – new toys are the best ones.
Herman and Ethel are tugging at the start and then Kay ends up with the toy.
6 December – a beautiful day so they all went outside under the olive trees. The dog you see on the outside of the pen is Amber, a French Brittany we got when she was 3.5 years old. She hasn’t interacted much with the puppies yet.
30 November – first time outside
New experience today – foil! New smell, sound, taste and texture.
Grover, Herman, Ivan, Jacob and Kay have a bit of a wrestle with each other.
