Three weeks

Today the puppies are three weeks old and it’s been a big week for development! With their eyes and ears now open they’re noticing much more of their environment and even recognize us. We’ve been playing background music, starting off laidback with “Relaxation” radio and reggae. They’re playing with each other and practicing “killing” the little squirrel toy. They’ve moved into a bigger pen with lots of toys to explore, including a mirror, raccoon tail, balance disc, and more. It’s a puppy amusement park!

Two weeks


This week everybody opened their eyes and, as ears started opening up, found their voices too! Purple is learning to bark and everybody is practicing their play growl. All four puppies are walking (albeit clumsily) and have started playing. Mostly this entails trying to gum a sleeping/eating sibling to death.

Hello world


Red started it a couple days ago but now all the puppies are starting to just crack open their eyes. It’s so exciting to finally “meet” them as they start to realize there’s a big world out there.

One week


The Scout x Fiona puppies are one week old today and all are doing well. Fiona is doing a fabulous job, proven by the fact that all four puppies have more than doubled in weight since birth!

The puppies are being handled daily and have been introduced to several new scents, including raccoon tail, wood, and ceramic. It’s fascinating to watch them pause to take in and catalog each new scent.

The Scout x Fiona puppies have arrived!


It was a long two days with only 5  hours of sleep but we’re happy to announce that the Scout x Fiona pups have arrived! We have two boys and two girls, and Fiona was a champ. This was her first litter and she fought through the exhaustion like a pro. We’re excited to see how these puppies develop!

Litter confirmed!

We can finally announce that we do in fact have puppies on the way! No official count yet due to the vagaries of ultrasound but it appears we’ll have four pups in early June. We’re currently interviewing potential homes; contact me if interested.
