8 week puppy update:

Adelle's puppies are now 8 weeks old and were at the vet today for their health examination, and since they were found to be in excellent health by our vet, they were given their first vaccine which covers:

-Parvovirus

-Distemper

-Hepatitis (Also called Adenovirus OR CAV2-Hepatitis)

-Parainfluenza

And the puppies were also dewormed according to their weights with StrongidT.

Here is a complete breakdown of our vet's above-average health examination in a point form below:

-  Eyes  (checked for abnormalities or discharge, and the vet will look at the internal eye with an ophthalmoscope)

​-  Ears  (checked for redness/infection or the presence of mites, and the vet will look in the ear with an otoscope)

​-  Mouth & throat  (checked for gum colour, swallow reflex, and teeth alignment)

-  Heart  (checked for irregular heartbeat patterns or murmurs)

​-  Lungs  (checked for rhythmic breaths and clarity of lungs)

​-  Stomach palpitation  (checked for any signs of bloating, discomfort, or the presence of a hernia)

​-  Flexion of joints  (checked for fluid movement of joints in the hips, knees, and elbows)

​-  Postural Reflexes  (the "paw flip test" checks for proper neurological function where the paw is flipped under so the pads face upwards towards the belly. This is done to see how quickly the puppy rights it's paw so that the pads are flat on the ground/surface again the way a dog would normally bear weight/stand)

-  Equilibrium  (checked balance by turning the puppy on it's back to make sure the puppy can roll upright again, and assessing the gait of a puppy)

​-  Temperature  (checked for normal body temperature)

​-  Weight  (checked for healthy weight and growth rate)

Our vet and the staff were very impressed with the social and quiet nature of the puppies.  We had to maintain a social distance while the puppies were examined by our vet, and all of the puppies had wagging tails and were happy to see new faces!

 

Both to and from the vet (1 hour and 15 minutes each way) the puppies were all completely silent and content in the crate, and none of the puppies showed any signs of motion sickness, so they should be good for their rides home! Here are some video clips we captured on the way up to our vet while they were contently sleeping:

Here are their weights that were taken at the vet today:

Luna weighed 4 pounds and 3 ounces!

Oliver weighed 2 pounds and 7 ounces!

Delta weighed 3 pounds and 6 ounces!

Duke weighed 4 pounds and 4 ounces!

Valentino weighed 4 pounds and 8 ounces!

Nina weighed 2 pounds and 4 ounces!

Mika weighed 3 pounds and 8 ounces!

 

 

Here are some photos of the puppies in our vet clinic's waiting room quietly looking around at the new sights while we paid the bill:

The puppies are sleeping through the night from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM in a closed crate, and they have been exceptionally good at settling down and not whimpering in the crate when they have spent time in it for short periods throughout the day.  We definitely hope that the puppies continue their easy-going nature for crate training, and this is a really good sign that they will!

The litter as a whole has done very well on their potty pad training and there have been zero accidents off the pad area.  They also have been doing well getting their pees outside when we take them out, and a few poops from some of the puppies which usually takes them longer to learn.

They are eating 1/4 of a cup of kibbles that have been softened in water for around 2-3 minutes if boiling water is used (5 minutes if hot tap water is used).  They can transition to hard kibbles in a couple of weeks, but we do still recommend adding water to their food so that it's not too dry for them to eat.  The video below is on our Instructional page, but here it is for your convenience:

(brand of canned food will vary)

The puppies have been working hard on their sitting skills and have perfected the "sit" command!  Here is a video of the puppies showing off:

We have also added the information about the Nutrical Gel to the Taking Puppy Home Online Instructional -- so refresh and log back in to see it!

When you come to pick up your puppy -- please park in the cleared parking area shown below:

PLEASE stay in your vehicle and if we haven't already observed your arrival, please CALL us at 613-331-4745 (also can be found on our Contact us page).

We will bring your puppy and his or her Puppy Starter Kit items out to you, and if you have spoken for a 27 pound bag of the Inception food we will have that for you as well.

There will be a puppy pen set up outside where we will set your puppy down for you to retrieve so that we all can avoid hand-to-hand contact.

Please bring a mask and wear it when you get out of your vehicle.  And also, no matter how excited you are, please remember to social distance and stay 6 feet away.

We are required by law to adhere to social distancing regulations, and with lockdown restrictions the puppy pick ups need to take place outside (curbside) and safety procedures have to be adhered to strictly!

We will have multiple families picking up at the approximate same time, so if there is another family ahead of you, please remain in your vehicle until their puppy pick up is finished.  Pick ups will be brief and we will be available by phone and e-mail for any and all questions and advice as we always have been and will be!

With the pandemic still in full swing -- please don't forget to schedule your puppy's 12 and 16 week old appointments at your vet for their next set of vaccinations and dewormings. 

 

Adelle's puppies will be turning 12 weeks old on February 3rd, 2021 (second shot due).

 

And they will be turning 16 weeks old on March 3rd, 2021 (third shot and rabies due).

With everyone buying puppies during COVID-19 you will want to book those appointments in advance with your veterinarian.

We look forward to seeing the families (at a social distance) when you come for your puppies!  Here is a group photo of the litter together:

6 week puppy update:

Adelle's puppies have been doing marvelously in all regards!  The puppies have had a change this week -- the new puppy pen that you saw in the bonus video update, and an opportunity to go outside and experience grass, snow, and cooler temperatures!  They had great fun chewing on the grass and snow/ice and their tails were all wagging as they enjoyed their first brief outdoor experience!

The puppies had their fur wiped down with puppy wipes before their photo session, had their nails trimmed, their fur was brushed, and also the fur around their eyes was trimmed.  All of the puppies are compliant, and easy going -- truly a great litter!

They have been started on their crate training, and have all enjoyed going in their crate for naps and play time.  This has been one of the easiest litters for their potty training, and their crate training, which those two things go hand in hand as the crate is supposed to be a place where your puppy can go where he/she does not go potty. The litter as a whole sleeps in the crate and they get up and use the potty pad in the night.  Soon we will begin to close the crate door at night time, but will be near by if needed to let them out for a potty break during the night.

The puppies were also weighed and dewormed again today -- here are their weights:

As you saw in the Skype Video Calls, we did place the scent blankets in with the puppies, and they have also been moved to their new pen -- one of these scent blankets will be sent home with your puppy and we recommend tying your puppy's blanket on the side of the crate so that if your puppy does have an "oopsy" the blanket is still "high and dry".

The puppies are eating approximately 1/4 of a cup of food 3 times per day around 8 am, 3 pm, and again at 7 pm.  Just Oliver and Nina are eating slightly less than the 1/4 of cup.

We are soaking their kibbles in hot water for approximately 2-3 minutes and adding a teaspoon of canned food to their individual meals and mixing it together.  You can see a video of how to prepare your puppy's food here: (the brands shown are different but it's the same process)

You can change your puppy's feeding schedule if necessary to suit your home schedule, but a puppy's meals should be spaced approximately 4-5 hours apart and a puppy needs to be fed 3 meals per day.

We will be starting to teach the puppies to sit for food (just kibbles will be used) this not only helps the puppy to learn their name as we say "Good ______!" when they follow a command, but also helps the puppies to learn to look to humans for guidance.

We have scheduled the puppies vet appointment for Wednesday, January 6th -- and so our final puppy update on January 6th, 2021 will also contain their vet update! 

The puppies can be picked up any time from January 7th to January 10th -- please see the link that has been sent to you via e-mail in the "6 week old update".  If you haven't confirmed with us a pick up time -- please let us know as soon as possible.  Pick ups are at 11 am and 2 pm any day from January 7th to January 10th and we need to know when you will be arriving so that we can have your puppy ready to go with all of his/her puppy starter kit items and also to be able to do a "social distance pick up".  We will give further instructions in the 8 week update.

Please also check your e-mail in the "6 week update" for the attached "Pleasant Meadows Puppy Purchase Agreement".  With the extra lock downs in place we will do that step electronically instead of in person at puppy pick-up time.  Please print the agreement, fill out the section in blue for "Buyer's Information & Signature" and either scan it back to us, or take a photo of it and e-mail it back to us.  If you have any technical difficulties with this step, please let us know and we will figure something out.

We will have 7 bags of the Inception Pork (27 pound bag) here for purchase if you have been unable to source the food from your local stores.  There is a 4 pound bag supplied for FREE in your PUPPY STARTER KIT -- however, with the lock downs and possible shipping delays, even for pet stores -- you may want to consider purchasing a large bag of food just to be on the safe side.  If you want a 27 pound bag of the Inception Pork food set aside for you for purchase please let us know and we will e-mail you details.

If you are planning to switch your puppy to a different food -- you can see the brands we recommend on our Recommended DOG Food page:

To end the 6 week old update -- here is a video of the puppies during their first adventure outside:

6 week bonus video:

Adelle's puppies have had a change of pen and were moved from our living room into our kitchen area in order to make room for Daphne's puppies to move into the living room from the Nursery.  During the transition and different pen shape, we have given the puppies an extra large potty pad to reduce accidents, which is important to broaden your expectations of a puppy during any change in their environment.  The puppies are still doing great and getting their potty habits on the far side of their pen (to the right of the crate), but the larger pad just gives that buffer during a change -- we will reduce the potty pad size again once we are certain they are going potty consistently where they should be! The crate has been a huge hit with the puppies for adding a secure resting and sleeping space -- Duke (green boy) particularly liked the crate instantly, and afterwards all the rest of the puppies joined him in the crate for a well earned nap!  We hope you enjoy this video of the puppies exploring and playing in their new puppy pen!

4 week old update:

Adelle's puppies are now 4 weeks old.  As you will have seen in the most recent video, they have been moved into our living room and have been upgraded to a larger pen to accommodate their activities as they become more adventuresome and play with more enthusiasm.  We are highly impressed with how readily the puppies adjusted to the change of environment and there has been no stress or upset with the change.  In fact, all of the puppies have seemed to thoroughly enjoy seeing all the new sights and hearing all the new sounds that come from being in a more active room in our home.  The family television is right above the puppies pen, and although we don't watch much TV, we do sit down to enjoy a good movie, especially with the Christmas holidays and the puppies are not even phased by the new loud and potentially startling sounds coming from the TV.

The puppies are well established on their slow weaning process from Adelle and have been total naturals at it -- taking easily to the introduction of food while still having the opportunity to nurse.  The puppies enjoy 3 meals per day of canned food, softened kibbles, goats milk, probiotics (once per day), and NutriCal paste -- and they can nurse from Adelle between meals and at night time.  It's hard for all of the puppies to nurse at the same time because Adelle is a small mom to accommodate 7 puppies vying for a spot and so we are so very thankful that the puppies have been so good for eating an alternate food source to take the burden off of Adelle.

You may have noticed a new food item added to the list of things we feed our puppies while weaning -- Nutrical paste has many benefits and we have discovered that our puppies wean easier with less stress and they take to food more readily with the NutriCal paste.  We will also be sending you home with NutriCal paste in your Puppy Starter Kits to help with the transition of going to a new home and ensuring that our puppies eat well and do well!  We will also be adding info to our Taking Home Online Instructional about the NutriCal paste before the puppies go home at 8 weeks.

Prior to the photo session this afternoon, the puppies were all bathed and blow-dried and ALL of them were totally chill about the process!  They were limp and relaxed for their bath and didn't mind the new sensation of water, and they weren't upset by the blow drier!

They also had their toe nails trimmed and the fur on their noses trimmed as both are an important part of grooming maintenance for a dog, especially ones with fluffy fur!  Keeping the fur away from their eyes reduces irritation from hair scratching their eyes and getting in the way of their vision, and their toe nails should be trimmed regularly as proper nail maintenance helps with a dog's traction and their overall structure.

We also weighed the puppies for their 4 week deworming and here are their weights:

Red Collar Girl

2 pounds and

2 ounces

Yellow Collar Girl

1 pound and

13 ounces

Pink Collar Girl

1 pound and

13.5 ounces

Purple Collar Girl

1 pound and

10 ounces

Blue Collar Boy

2 poundS and

10.5 ounces

Green Collar Boy

2 pounds and

1 ounce

Orange Collar Boy

1 pound and

10.5 ounces

Their co-operation for the photos today was astounding!  It was "sit and snap" and away we go!  We are loving the temperaments that we can see emerging in the puppies so far, and we can't wait to share them with the families on Adelle's list soon for the Skype Video Calls when the puppies are chosen!

Our next scheduled puppy update will be on  Wednesday, December 23rd  when the puppies turn 6 weeks old! 

Hope you enjoyed this update!

3.5 week "EXTRA" bonus video:

Adelle's fantastic seven have had a big adventure today!  They "outgrew" their whelping box and needed more space to play and so they have been transitioned from the Nursery to our livingroom and they never even skipped a beat! Their tails were wagging in excitement as they greeted their new world! 

3 week old bonus video:

Adelle's fantastic seven are completely adorable!  The puppies are starting to explore their whelping box with curiosity and enthusiasm!  Their bonds are clear as you see their social skills developing as they lick each other's faces as a form of discovery and future play together a litter.  We hope you enjoy this video: 

2 week old update:

Adelle's puppies are now 2 weeks old!  Their eyes are just opening -- the process usually takes about 48 hours for them to fully open and be expressive.  Blue Collar Boy's and Green Collar Boy's eyes are just peeking open in their photos and likely will be open by tomorrow.  People don't often realize that puppies (and kittens and similar mammals) are actually born premature compared to other species since they are born both blind and deaf until their eyes and ears open around 14 days old.  This is a huge milestone and new experience for the puppies to both see and hear what is going on around them instead of relying solely on their senses of smell, touch, and taste.

The puppies were weighed earlier today for their 2 week deworming which the dosage is based on each puppy's exact weight.  Here are the puppies 2 week old weights:

Red Collar Girl

1 pound and

6.5 ounces
