8 weeks Old Yorkie puppies

Finally put some bling on the pups.  They are now much easier to tell apart because they have collars on!  Pippa is hot pink with polka dots, Kate is light pink.  Benny has a  camo collar, Will had a black collar, and Marley has a blue one.  They went and had their shots yesterday and everyone wanted to love them all up!  This morning we worked with walking on a leash.  Kate was the most stubborn but after a bit she finally walked along with only the occasional temper tantrum.  Will was the best he was just so excited to be out on a new adventure!  This afternoon they are enjoying the lazy dogs of summer and basking in the warm sunshine we have in Las Vegas.  Lots of sleeping going on!

3 week old Yorkie Puppies!

The puppies have been busy growing up!  They have opened their eyes, mastered potty training, and started to lap up water and kibble.  I can already tell this is going to be a really sweet little group.  They are starting to play with each other and love to cuddle up for a nap.  Here are some pics...

Our Royal litter has arrived!

My little girl Montana had her first litter this week.  We have been busy supplementing them with bottle feedings until her milk comes in.  They are now doing great and gaining weight quickly!  Tails were docked and dewclaws removed yesterday.  Everyone at the vet was in love with them!  We've also relocated to Las Vegas so it has been a super busy month for us all!  Here are a couple of pics...

Montana is still in labor and we are waiting for Pippa to arrive!  I still can't believe she had 3 boys and two girls! In order of birth we have Prince, Duke, Kate, Will and Pippa

Puppies soon!!

Montana keeps getting bigger but the puppies are finally starting to drop and are no longer hiding up under her ribs.  Her milk has come in so they should be here within the next 3-4 days.  We are all ready to go and just waiting for them to arrive. We are going with the Royal Family theme... so the pups will be named Prince, Princess, Duke, Duchess, Count and possibly Kate if we have a hideway.  Pics to come!

A new litter will be ready by Christmas!

I decided to breed Montana because she is so adorable and such a sweet little dog.  She is about 5 lbs now and I bred her with a cute little 3 lb yorkie.  Her puppies are going to be so cute I can hardly wait until they are here!

7 week update!!

Rose and Jake are really growing into their personalities!  Rose is very smart and independent, and has no fear!  She will tackle Jack and pin him in a heartbeat, but she also knows she can squeeze into smaller spaces if she wants to hide from Jack.   Jack has much more energy then Rose and is twice her size!  He is always up for playing and begs and begs to get out of the kennel when he feels I have slept long enough in the morning (usually 7am!)

Here are the latest pics!

Eyes are open!

Pups are 10 days old and doing great!

One week old!

Jack and Rose are doing great... both have doubled in size and are getting lots of love from Daisy.  I love the little white stripe on Rose's forehead.. hopefully it will grow into the perfect white ponytail when it's long enough.  We are now patiently waiting for their eyes to open up and then they will start to explore.  It's always fun to get some video of the puppies as they start to wobble around.  Right now all they do is sleep, eat and poop.

Pups first vet check up

Pups went to the vet to have their first check up.  They did great!  The vet removed their dewclaws and docked their tails while we were there.  Daisy did not like being separated from her pups but she survived.  Here are some pics from today.

Jack and Rose

I really wasn't expecting Daisy to have the puppies last night.  She hasn't been resting and all stretched out like she usually is the last few days before she delivers.  I'm guessing it's because of the small litter she had.  We had some difficulties getting her to tie with Dewey due to the difference in size.  However, I'm excited to see these two grow up!

Jack weighed in at a whopping 6.7 ounces and our cute little Rose is 5.2 ounces.  Jack is going to look like Montana when his colors change, and Rose will have the black body and brown legs/face as most Yorkies look like.  Both are going to be super cute!  Jack is the most vocal and the biggest eater, luckily there is plenty of milk for the both of them. 

Montana went down to spend some time with her Grandma Ella and Aunt Chloe, while Daisy is on full Mommy patrol.  Jake is staying clear out of her visual in hopes of not upsetting her.  The next few days should be pure craziness!

We have a new litter!

Daisy had two super cute puppies in the middle of the night.....  Jack and Rose...

Puppy watch 2011

Well Daisy is really starting to get big, she should have the puppies by Sunday or Monday.  I've set up her whelping box and she is starting to nest and get ready for delivery.  I've gathered all the things I need for the whelp, so now we just sit and wait.

It will be interesting to see if litter #3 comes at the same time as the previous litters.  Both litters were born on day 61 and the deliveries started between 7 and 8 pm.  Since I used the same stud last year we are hoping for another 50/50 mix of boys and girls !  It will be interesting to see if they resemble the first litter or not. Right now I'm leaning towards using the names Jack and Rose, Rhett and Scarlet.  However I haven't really found the last couple of names.  I like Romeo but not Juliet.  Sonny and Cher just aren't meshing either.  However I do love the movie "The Notebook" and I like the thought of Noah and Allie.. but my new niece is named Allie.  Oh well I have a week to find the right fit!  LOL

Here is a pic of the dogs that seem to have taken over my couch!

Daisy's pregnancy haircut

I took Daisy to the groomers yesterday to get her haircut.  I've found it's best to go super short about three weeks before delivery.  There are a few reasons for this.  First whelping is a messy messy messy event.  The first litter Daisy had long hair and was a mess afterwards.  Of course she won't let me take her away from the puppies long enough for a bath for at least 5 days.  It was a long smelly 5 days!  So now I shave her down, it makes it easy for the puppies to get to her teats as well.  Then I can just use a large wet wipe to clean her up after the whelping is completed.  It's also easier to visualize the puppy coming out of the birth canal if there is not a lot of hair in the way.

I'm not too good at palpating the puppies at the 4 week mark but I'm getting better.  I definitely felt a few puppies on each side so she will have at least 4 puppies.  Since they are coming around Valentines day I've been playing around with a few famous couples names to use for the puppies.  I'm definitely going to use Romeo and Juliet, maybe Sonny and Cher too.  I'd love help from my readers, so please let me know of any cute couple names that come to mind!
