In our new homes !
April 25, 2013
The puppies have gone to their new homes and are settled in. Their mom and dad have sent pictures in their new surroundings:
Pepper claiming his chair around the fire pit !
And Charlie going to the beach with mom and his new ‘sister’
Thanks for the update and the pictures !
As I had mentioned before, time goes too fast with puppies, you have waited for the mom to come in season, have done the breeding, waited to see if we were pregnant and finally the day came when they were born. From the moment you hold these little puppies they make you smile and they fill your day. But then the wait continues for the families, first they get to see the pictures and then the moment comes when they can come and visit their little one , time is at a standstill! And then the day comes when the families come to get their little man, it is a most happy day that most of us remember for a long long time ! For us, although we know they will be going, is a day of mixed feelings; you hope that you choose the right homes where the puppies will be happy and make people happy and you share in their joy when they finally take their precious little man home, but it leaves our house feeling empty, at least for a few days, as they were such a big part of our lives for the last two months.
Here is a few pictures we did for Charlie’s and Pepper’s going home books.

Join us next week for a fun look at the Bloopers !
Run Run !
What is really fun to watch are the puppies when they get to go outside. In anticipation of their birthday tomorrow we did some pictures today while the boys just let their hair down. Enjoy !
“We want out !!!!” Peper demanding to be let out while Charlie pleads !
Freedom to explore !
And run, and run, and run……
Needless to say that after all that playing outside they very pretty tired !
A tired pup is a happy pup ! ( May be it is the parents !!!) They slept for the rest of the afternoon !

Happy easter !
Well here we had Easter bunnies disguised as schnauzer puppies, as they pose in their little Easter basket.
As you can see, it did not last long, there were way too many interesting things to check out!
The puppies have been exploring the yard for a few days, but they never tire of it. Too many exciting things to see and find, including carrying sticks, chasing dead leaves and searching the dead grass for what lays under !
Playing, ring around the legs, hopping and running wild!
Here is Charlie and Pepper , going at it with gusto !
They like to carry whatever they can find, even things bigger than they are !
There are few contemplative moments and I have to be quick on the shutter button to capture them !
Even our little men have to stop for necessities !!
Hopefully we will get some more nice days soon to do more pictures !
On the move !

This week marks the puppies sixth week birthday! As you will see they are real little dogs, getting excited, showing preferences and voicing their discontent !
They now move things around, explore dark corners and play hard. They are fast and at times they successfully disappear for a second or two !
Can you see anyone in there ? ( hint at the end of today’s post)
The boys are really fascinated by the puppies, I guess since they do not have to feed them and clean them, they retain some of the magic ! Here is Great Great Great Uncle Tempête visiting and brother Louie having a close up. The puppies had the opportunity to run loose with Mom and Louie, what a hoot that was!
They are now eating ‘regular’ dog food and enjoying it very much, but they still enjoy a little nursing when Mom lets them !
They love getting out of the playpen, and you no longer have to show them where the door is or how to get out of it !
Here’s Pepper showing off his gait, enjoying a lace, and trying out the flooring.
Charlie found the big dogs water bowl and is constantly on the move !
And we are off again !
At the end of it all, the best is still a good snooze in our beds !
See you later !
Growing Too Fast !
Part of the process in raising puppies is that you know they are with you for just a little time, those 8 weeks go so fast ! On the other side, for the families anxiously waiting their new arrival, time cannot go fast enough !
This week the puppies are 5 weeks old, they are eating regular food – mind you doctored a bit; they still love mom’s visits but they are getting curious and want to explore the great outdoors. It is a bit cold today but as soon as temperature permits we will be out, in the meantime there is lots to explore indoors.
They posed for their mug shots, here are a few takes to enjoy !
Mr Pepper who had not been forthcoming in giving us head shots has taken to giving us lots this week.
Little Charlie is too busy too look at the camera a lot !
Free to explore !
Pepper going all out
Charlie playing the great escape
Charlie looks as if he cannot remember how he got out !
All kinds of new things to play with.
Curious Charlie says ” See you next week “!
Happy Birthday mom !
Today is mom’s birthday on St Patrick Day and it was our 4 th week birthday yesterday !
We celebrated with cuddles and a visit to our new accommodations !
Mr Light giving us a profile
and Mr Dark with his soulful look !
We had a ball cuddling
and running around in the house
and exploring our new play area and having a visit from the big dogs !
Granny also had a birthday snack our first non-mom meal, yum yum !
All of this was very tiring !
After the party we had a good sleep !
See you later !
The li’l men.
Today the two little men are three weeks old! What a difference !
Here are some pictures taken this morning:
I was quick enough to almost get them posing side by side !
As they climbed Mount Ice Cream ( Mom) I caught them at the summit!
Ciara must be feeding them ice cream! They are chunky little guys!
Here they are during the climb !
Be careful Mom says !
The puppies had a big snooze after this ! See you next week !
Almost 2 weeks old !
I always like to document the puppies growing up on their weekly birthdays, but I had the chance to take some neat picts today, so here we are with a day short of our second birthday.
Here we are with mom, did you noticed how much we have grown ! Ciara is a very attentive mom and she make sure that everyone is well groomed !
Trying to show you their little faces , I still have to hold them in my hand; the first one is the little dark guy and then the not so little lighter one. Their birth weight and growing pattern at this stage is not indicative of their future size. Their is not doubt that these little guys are thriving !
They are starting to do push ups and soon they will be trotting along here is Mr Light showing off his cute little socks on his front paws:
Her he is showing his cute little face !
Mr Dark, whose eyes are starting to open, is giving it a good try !
It is hard work getting our picture done !!

They are a week old already ! Here is Mr Dark and Mr Light
I finally caught them on a full tummy so I could catch them ! They have been growing fast tipping the scale at 2 pound already!
Their eyes are not open yet neither can they hear but it will not be long! To celebrate their birthday they had their first nail clipping, Mom Ciara appreciate as they use these little paw to hang on to mom while feeding.
Ciara gave birth to two beautiful puppies on February 16th.
Welcome to my nursery !
