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
Yellow Collar Girl
1 pound and
Pink Collar Girl
1 pound and
Purple Collar Girl
1 pound and
Blue Collar Boy
1 pound and
Green Collar Boy
1 pound and
Orange Collar Boy
1 pound and
The puppies are all calm in nature and were quite settled on the photo set! They are starting to push themselves up on their front legs into a sitting position, and they can readily clammer over to their mom when she hops in their whelping box to feed them!
Within the next couple of weeks, we will be starting the puppies on the beginning stages of potty training. Over the past nearly 11 years, we have used the traditional pee-pads or grass pads for potty training our puppies -- both of these methods work, however, the puppies inevitably end up shredding the pee pads or grass pads. It's simply just too irresistible for curious puppies! We believe that we have found a better alternative and wanted to share it with you so that you know how your puppy will be potty trained over the coming weeks and what product we recommend buying instead of pee-pads or grass pads if you are going to continue that method of training in your home. We have been trying them out over the past month for our youngest generation of puppies at Pleasant Meadows (Celina, Benson, Desmond, and Zulie) and they have completely changed our lives for the better! We're talking about MACHINE WASHABLE PADS -- they are the greatest thing since sliced bread! A puppy cannot shred them, and they are good for about 300 washes!
They have other uses besides potty training, like lining the bottom of your puppy's crate, using them for travel in a vehicle to protect your seats and your living room furniture or to catch spills under your puppy's food and water bowls. They come in a variety of sizes and you can pick and choose what size suits you best!
They can be purchased on Amazon or at stores like Paulmacs and Pet Valu. Here are the links:
We highly recommend purchasing 2 or 3 of these pads so that your puppy can use one throughout the day while the other one(s) are in the wash.
It is far more cost-effective to purchase 2 or 3 of these pads than it is to purchase 1 $30-50 box of the traditional pee-pads and have your puppy shred over half of them (wasting money). And trust us from nearly 11 years of experience -- sometimes they can be shredded within 30 seconds of you replacing the previously shredded pee-pad! And then, there is the safety aspect of puppies ingesting pieces of the traditional pee-pads or grass pads -- these washable pee-pads cannot be shredded or ingested by young puppies!
We also want to help prepare you for bringing a puppy home! Please take advantage of all the information that is on our Taking Home Puppy Online Instructional:
The Taking Home Puppy Online Instructional is exclusive to Pleasant Meadows and we have created the instructional to prepare you for raising a puppy! The page is password-protected, so for those on Adelle and Samuel's list -- check your e-mail for the password given in the e-mail announcement for this 2 week old puppy update!
It is meant to give you confidence in all the stages and steps that will come while raising a puppy, and previous feedback has shown it to be invaluable for families, especially if this is your first puppy! We are continually adding new items to the instructional as needed, and when changes are made we will make note of it here in one of the puppy updates. New changes won't be seen unless the page is refreshed and you re-login in with your password in order to see any new content. We recommend writing down the password and keeping it by your computer for easy access.
We will be doing the foundational work for socializing your new puppy. As responsible breeders it is our aim to socialize our litters to as many things as possible from the "ordinary" to the "not-so-ordinary" in order to prepare all of our puppies to the best of our ability to face the "big world". We will be exposing your puppy to as many different sounds as possible like train whistles, vehicle horns, fireworks, thunderstorms, power tool sounds, vacuuming, various alarm/drill sounds, etc. and to sights like umbrellas, household objects, lights (flickering or flashing), flags, flapping sheets, doors and drawers opening and closing, etc. . . . use your imagination!
During these times of social distancing, we want to assure you that we are devoted to preparing your puppy for "life after Pleasant Meadows" and we will be here for you if you need any help socializing your puppy while social distancing is in effect. There is even a section on the Taking Home Puppy Online Instructional that gives tips on how to socialize your puppy, including a section on Socializing Your Puppy While Social Distancing.
We will start emailing the families on Adelle and Samuel's list shortly to schedule you for a Skype Video Call to meet the puppies around the 5-6 week mark. We will schedule you in the order in which your name is on the waiting list, but regardless of your position, we will be keeping each family and puppy in mind in order to facilitate appropriate puppy matches that benefit both the family and the puppy. Please keep in mind, with possible Christmas shopping coming up, that the holding fee will be due within 24 hours of the Skype Video Call to hold the puppy of your choice until he or she is 8 weeks of age. Please see the Puppy Prices page if you need any clarification of the price.
Our next scheduled puppy update will be when the puppies turn 4 weeks old on:
Wednesday, December 9th, 2020.
Here are a few group photos of the puppies together to end their 2 week update on a cute note:
4 day old video update:
Adelle is doing a wonderful job mothering 7 puppies! Typically in large litters, there is a lot of competition and jostling around while nursing for the puppies to get the "best spot", but you can see just how content the puppies are as they nurse! Adelle's gentle nature is showing through and it's a beautiful thing to see!
Adelle has given birth to a beautiful litter on Remembrance Day (Nov. 11th) and we have 7 stunning puppies to announce! There are 4 GIRLS and 3 BOYS! Adelle was very relaxed during the birthing process and took her time which fits right in line with her sweet and gentle mothering skills. Adelle is a very calm and happy mother who wags her tail even throughout labour, and we saw in her previous litter with Samuel how this calm and happy demeanour is passed down to her puppies.
We have given the puppies coloured collars to help with their identification. The collars are specifically designed to be safe for puppies to wear and will help keep track of which puppy is which, especially in upcoming photos and videos. The girls are wearing Purple, Pink, Yellow, and Red collars. And the boys are wearing Blue, Orange, and Green collars.
We are very excited to be able to share such wonderful puppies with the families on this list, and we were not expecting to have so many puppies to offer from Adelle, and so it's a surprise to be able to have added 3 families to this list who would have otherwise had to wait up to 2 years for a puppy!
We are currently waiting to hear from all the families on Adelle's list to collect their deposits and secure their opportunity to choose a puppy at 5-6 weeks of age.
Our next scheduled puppy update will be on Wednesday, November 25th, 2020 when Adelle's puppies turn 2 weeks of age. We send out bi-weekly updates, as well as random unscheduled bonus updates and we will always e-mail you when an update has been posted so you don't have to continually check our website.
The puppies are all vigorous and strong and were nursing within moments of birth, sometimes trying to nurse before their cords were even clamped and cut. And they are very quiet and content puppies -- so far we have not even heard a peep from beyond their first squeals of life!
We will be supplementing feedings when necessary as this is a lot of puppies and we want them to continue to grow strong!
We look forward to sharing these puppies with you in the weeks to come! Instructions on how to place a deposit are in the Birth Announcement e-mail that has been sent out to those on this waiting list!
