Today the pups are 32 days old, and they are getting more and more awake and alert. They are still very quiet, more than the ridgebacks, but in return they growl a lot more 🙂 They have gotten a cage inside the puppy pen, gotten a larger puppy pen and yesterday they also had their first trip outside which they simply loved! I have vacuum cleaned the puppy pen several times, and they are very curious about the noisy thing. But they are not afraid, and even try to chase it 🙂
As we can’t do any difference, we had to take stacked photos of the Airedales as well, even though these are not any show dogs. But they did well as was very cooperative. They look like they should look like, and I can’t wait to see how they develope! Stacked photos, as well as mixed photos, can be seen here.
The puppies are 31 days old today, and they are doing great. We have made more space for them in the puppy pen, they have gotten a cage inside their puppy pen to get used to lying in a cage, they have gotten a “puppy gym” with a lot of toys and noisy thngs hanging down. They have also heard a lot of noise from vacuum cleaner, blender etc, and they were completely calm with it. We have started to welcoming visitors, and the pups sure loves all the attention and cuddles they get. We have also had them outside for the first time, and they loved it! If the weather allows it, we will have them outside a short period of time every day the following week.
Last day we did the first stacked photos, together with weighing and deworming. See the stacked photos, as well as some mixed photos here.
Even though our puppies takes some time and energy, we try to give Ninja and Sheriff quality time with us, and go for long walks and take them training. Isi is a little bit jealous to be left alone while we go to training, but I have promised her that I will train with her from next week. I guess she will enjoy it tremendously! She is born to work, that one 🙂
I have attended a rally obedience course with Ninja, and she has been a super attendant! I have put time into playing and keeping contact with me from very young age, and I feel I see the results from that now. She is still very young in her head, and a couple of flies seems to fly back and forward up there, but she is still doing the best she can and the best she knows how to. See some more photos here. Sheriff has also gotten to do some training, and he is almost bursting of energy and expectation. Still a crazy, though older man 🙂
Fia and her owner Tone is also attending the course, and she is also doing a great job and I am convinced we will see her at some competitions eventually! We also took some stacked photos of Fia, and she is developing into a lovely little girl.
All dogs has enjoyed the last days lovely summer weather, and when we put up the pavilion on the terrace as well as the outside furniture, the dogs was right there sunbathing. We have had help from my younger sister Tina and brother Amund the last days, and Ninja really enjoys having them staying here. She is so sweet and kind with the kids and just loves being around them.
The puppies are 24 days old today and we have moved them down stairs to a larger puppy box. Now it is time for the puppies to hear more noise, get more socialization and meet our other dogs. They have gotten their first taste of solid food, and they went totally crazy from the smell and taste of it 🙂 Now they get solid food 2 times a day, and Kiwi have started to educate them that the milk bar is not open all day long. Ninja is super interested in her new aunts and uncles, and spend time in the puppy box every chance she gets. I have taken individual photos, as well as a bunch of various photos that can be seen here.
Isi and her puppies are doing great and it is quite special for us to finally have a litter from Isi. They are 24 days old today, and a lot have happened during the last three days. They have moved to a larger puppy box down stairs, they have gotten their first taste of solid food, and they have started to move around a lot more and are very interested in people. They focus more and more on what’s happening around them, and really appreciate human contact. Isi still keep a very close eye on the other dogs when they put their heads in the puppy box, but as long as they are calm and nice to the puppies, Isi is happy. I have taken individual photos of the puppies, as well as a lot of mixed photos that can be viewed here.
Kiwi’s puppies are 17 days old today and they have opened their eyes and are supercute! They are up on their feet, and moves more and more around in the puppy box. Kiwi is caring for them 24/7 and does not want to leave them for more than a short time. The pups and the puppy box are clean at all times, and they are well fed 🙂 They have also gotten their first deworming, and they was not very happy about that 😉 More photos of the puppies, as well as individual photos at 14 days old here.
Isi’s puppies are 17 days old, and they are doing great! Now they have opened their eyes, and they have started to stand on their legs and kind of walks around. They have gotten their first deworming, and I have already cut their nails 2 times. Isi is caring wonderfully for her pups, but she wants to go for longer walks and she begs me for some training! Supermommy 🙂 More photos of the puppies, as well as individual photos at 14 days old here.
Our 10 ridgeback puppies are doing great, and Kiwi cares for them and makes sure that everyone are fed and cleaned up. Everyone has gained weight as they should, even the little Miss Orange that weighed only 245g at birth. As it looks like now, all the puppies from this litter are sold. I have added some individuals photos of the pups 7 days old, as well as some photos from the latest days here. Soon they will open their eyes, be more mobile and move around in the puppy box, and soon enough they will keep us on our toes 😉
Today our little sweeties is 10 days old, and everyone is gaining weight like they should and Isi is being the most wonderful mother you can imagine. Everything is just harmony in the puppy box and Isi is starting to spend more and more time down stairs together with us, instead of being in the puppy box 24/7. I have added some individual photos, as well as some mixed photos, here.
All the girls in the litter has been sold, but I am looking for the perfect home for one of the males in this litter. I am looking for a loving home that will work with the dog, preferably in obedience, working trials etc, alternatively IPO. These puppies have an enormous pedigree, with many well known dogs behind them that have proven themselves as great working dogs generation after generation. Isi’s father Eyk von Erikson is the most merited Airedale thru times in IPO, and have great results from FCI IPO World Championship. There are also several police dogs behind these lines, as Isi’s grandfather Ilko von der Krebsförde. Therefore it is most likely that these puppies will have the temperament, mentality and health to become superb all round dogs, great family dogs in combination with great working dog qualities.
