Annalyse and Samuel's puppies turn 8 weeks old on Saturday Feb. 6th. They were at the vet today for their 8-week old health examination, their first vaccinations and additional deworming. They were contently looking around for most of the drive to the vet (over an hour) and they slept soundly the entire return trip home. There were zero signs of motion sickness -- so this should be good for all the families going home with their pups on Saturday!
All of the puppies were deemed to be in excellent health by our vet and he loved the puppies exuberant wagging tails! They were given their first vaccine which covers:
-Hepatitis (Also called Adenovirus OR CAV2-Hepatitis)
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)
The puppies weights at the vet were as follows:
Onyx -- 2 pounds & 6 ounces
Riley -- 2 pounds & 12 ounces
Benji -- 4 pounds & 6 ounces
Reggie -- 3 pounds & 2 ounces
Romeo -- 3 pounds & 1 ounce
Oscar -- 2 pounds & 2 ounces
Luna -- 2 pounds & 7 ounces
Here are some photos of the puppies in our vet clinic's waiting room:
Since most of the puppies in this litter are 3 pounds and under -- please don't forget about using the Nutrical Gel that we send home with all of our puppies. Regardless of weight/size, but especially small breed puppies burn sugar very quickly and may need a vitamin boost if they go off their food any time during the transition from our home to yours. Leaving everything they know can be quite stressful for a puppy, and the Nutrical Gel can help keep them on track. You will find instructions for use on the Taking Home Puppy Online Instructional in the Nutrical Gel Info section.
You will find the Probiotics AND the Nutrical Gel in little containers in your puppy starter kit:
The litter has been exposed to going outside to do their potty business in the small pen space that was seen in the video -- here is a refresher photo:
We recommend continuing with a similar set up by either using a pen outside, or by simply keeping an area free of snow for your puppy like so:
Doing this will give your puppy a potty area that is (somewhat) free from snow so he/she doesn't get as wet and ultimately as cold in the winter weather. It is best to clear an area where you want your puppy to continue to do his/her potty business as this will set your puppy up for success to do his/her bathroom habits in one easy-to-clean-up-area of your yard.
The puppies have been sleeping in their crate with the door closed from 10pm to around 6am without a peep! This doesn't mean they won't be upset for the first few nights in your home, but it's a great indicator that they will be successful with their continued crate training in your home!
The puppies are basically eating 1/4 of a cup of kibbles, expect for Benji who is eating a smidge more at 1/3 of a cup of kibbles (3 times per day for all). Keep in mind that the amount may change after your puppy settles in your home. A little less is okay, as your puppy may not be burning off as much energy chasing after you as they would as a group playing with siblings.
The co-operation level for this entire litter is phenomenal -- they have excelled at every socialization milestone and are ready to take on the world! We have never, in all 11 years of raising puppies, had a litter readily sit so perfectly for their photos! We have dubbed them the "photo super stars" because of how co-operative they are for sitting for photo time!
Most people wouldn't believe that these group photos were taken in two easy clicks! The puppies were positioned on the set and they literally stayed there posing like little angels!
For puppy pick ups tomorrow (Saturday Feb. 6th) please take into account the weather conditions and drive safely! All of the puppies are scheduled to leave between 11am and 12:30pm -- please be considerate that social distancing needs to take place and be mindful that the next family will be arriving for pick up.
The Taking Home Puppy Instructional will remain up for you to refer back to on our website, and we will be here for you either by phone or email to cover any questions or advice needed outside of the instructional.
In order to comply with curbside pick up during the lock down -- we will have a socially safe set up at the end of our laneway:
Please wait in your vehicle until we have placed your puppy's Starter Kit Items beside the pen and have set your puppy in the pen and we have stepped back a socially safe distance. Please wear a mask, and we will also be wearing masks as we have a family member with a compromised immune system and we must be careful.
If another family is in the process of picking up their puppy when you arrive -- please pull ahead on the road until they can clear our driveway. We do have everyone spaced out but traffic and road conditions may vary and we could potentially have multiple people in line.
See you all tomorrow!
7 week old bonus video update:
Annalyse's puppies are nearly ready to go to their new homes and they have been happy-go-lucky, sweet, and easy going puppies with loads of enthusiasm for life! Their curiosity can be clearly seen with the introduction of a musical toy -- not sure we have seen another litter enjoy the piano as much as this group does! We hope you enjoy the video -- see you all on Saturday for puppy pick ups!
P.S. Please check your email for a link to our online Puppy Purchase Agreement which will need to be filled out virtually with the current COVID times -- we will need this prior to puppy pick up!
