The puppies are 53 days old, and that means that they are soon ready to leave the nest.. I can’t believe that the time has flewn by as fast as it has, but I guess the time flies when you are having fun 🙂 When you have 16 puppies at home, as well as 4 adult dogs to take care of, it’s safe to say that it’s not much time left to other things than keeping up with the puppies. I have been home from work since the puppies was 4 weeks old, and I am happy I have the possibility to take such long tome off work, and that I have a very understanding boss!
The puppies have grown for each day, and for each day they have shown more and more personality and temperament. We have taken them car driving a number of times, they have visited my mothers garden like all our litters get to do, they have been to the forrest, to my fathers house, to the beach, to my friend Camilla’s house on the country with 3 younger children and chasing around in our own barn which is a very exiting place for young pups. We have done everything we can to prepare them for the big world, and I am sure they will handle it perfectly. They are very sociable and affectionate towards people, they are curious and wants to explore the world, they are fearless and shows a very nice interest in playing and chasing toys. They have very nice grips, and hold on the toy with everything they have.
Last weekend Harriet Rosenthal (von Erikson
, breeder/owner of the puppies father Ayk) and Roxana Günther (von der Christinenheide
, breeder of Isi’s motherlines) was here to spend time with the puppies. Thank you so much for coming! They had only good things to say about the puppies, and they helped me to look for the right things when deciding which puppy should go to which owner. I am happy to say that I have a litter of very nice dogs, and everyone shows great promise as working dogs, as well as family dogs. They are simply wonderful and I am so proud of them!
