The last one to go.... Brooks

Brooks is going to his new home this week, it will be interesting to see how Montana gets along without a playmate. I am working on potty training outside so I can put the potty papers away. The stairs on the deck are still a bit icy and scary so we've been going in the front yard. Today was a beautiful day so we stayed outside and played in the sun for a bit. Brooks and Montana love exploring and finding sticks to chew on. They especially love chasing each other and seeing how close they can get to the road before I make them come back!

Bye bye Tiki and Bella

Tiki and Bella (aka Reagan) have joined their new families over the last week. I really am so happy with the families they went with. They are absolutely the perfect match for each puppy! Tiki is my quiet one that loves to cuddle or hide under the couch. Bella is my little princess that needs a lot of attention! She went to a family in Idaho and she is being spoiled to death! They have promised to send pictures and I can't wait to see her with her new family which include a daschund and a boxer/dalmation mix! Dexter came back overnight so he could go to the vets with everyone else to get shots. Here are some pics before everyone left.

9 week old Shorkie Puppies

The puppies are just full of energy and playfulness these days! The puppies that have been purchased have started doing overnights with their new families. Shockingly they are doing great with minimal whining! Daisy has really stepped up to teach them how to play appropriately. Tug of war is still their favorite game, any item will do! Here are some more pics of them playing.

Tug a War Shorkie Puppies favorite game!

The puppies love to play tug of war.... and as many as can will join in!

Mommy working with the Puppies

Daisy has weaned the puppies but that doesn't stop them from trying to get a drink. She quickly growls and moves away if they try to nurse on her now. She is busy teaching them the appropriate manner of play and biting. They like to gang up on her to make it a fair fight.

Montana - 8 wk Shorkie

Aw my sweet little Montana, she connected with me from day 1. I knew I was going to keep one of the little girls, but I wasn't sure which one. All my girls are such sweethearts and I'd love to keep them all, but that is just too many dogs to have in one house. So over the last 8 weeks I've been watching to see who would fit best with my little group. Montana looks just like Daisy did when she was a puppy. She's also just so sweet and calm and playful. I'm excited to see her grow up!

Getting a drink of water
Tana is worn out and about to take a nap....anywhere will do!

Reagan - 8 wk Shorkie puppy

Reagan is my adventurer. She is always looking for something else to do. She loves to play with the toys, tackle the fake tree, or start a game of tug of war. I'm currently working with her since she is also the most vocal of the group. She uses her cute little sad puppy face to get her way! However I think I'm winning the war as she is toning down her whining. She will definitely need to go to a family with a lot of kids to give her the attention she wants.

Tiki - 8 week old Shorkie

Tiki is the smallest male and the most timid of the group. He likes to hang out and just watch, but will join in when he wants to. He's very smart and patient in getting what he wants. He knows the other puppies will tire of their toy and he will just wait for that to happen. He will then move in and take the toy to his hiding spot. He's not very happy when I raid his hiding spot to bring all the toys back out for everyone to play with. But he will just patiently take them back one by one....

Dexter AKA Dante 8 week old Shorkie

Dexter is such a sweet sweet sweet puppy! He is going to be living with Bryan. His older Sister Tori lives with Bryan's mom out in Pennsylvania and it will be so much fun to see when these two get to meet. Dexter loves to play with all the puppies and he loves to be held. He was cuddling up with me last night in the sweetest way and I'm just hoping these next 4 weeks go really slow. Letting these little angels leave and go to their new homes is so hard to do!
