6 week old puppy update:

Annalyse's puppies turn 6 weeks old on Saturday! These are phenomenal puppies -- regular little movie stars that know how to pose in front of a camera!  Once again, this is a one shot photo deal from these amazing puppies which greatly helped us because today we had to actually do two updates as Daphne's puppy update was bumped to today since tomorrow they are 8 weeks old and not only go to the vet, but a few of the puppies go home later in the day.  So, this litter's co-operation has made their care and today's busy schedule tremendously easier!

We have moved Annalyse's puppies into our kitchen area (and Daphne's moved back into our living room) so that they can experience the next phase in their socialization.  Here are a couple photos of their new pen with Annalyse close by:

The puppies are now fully weaned from Annalyse and are eating 3 meals a day of kibbled softened in water and canned food added to the mixture.  And they are enjoying the addition of the crate in their pen space and voluntarily take naps in it throughout the day and sleep in it at night time (door still open).

Grooming has been easy with these puppies!  Today they had their nails trimmed, faces cleaned with puppy wipes to remove the "kibble face", and the hair by their eyes and bum area were also trimmed!  The puppies don't mind any of these procedures!

The puppies are playful, inquisitive, and have thoroughly enjoyed their change of scenery with the move into our kitchen.  They are calm with new experiences, and we have said it in the past for Annalyse and Samuel's 2019 litter and it's still true -- these are some of our best puppies!

We weighed the puppies for their 6 week deworming and their weights are below:

Weight: 1 pound and 10 ounces

4 week old puppy update:

Annalyse's puppies turn 4 weeks old on Saturday! There is a wide range in size in the puppies in this litter from the largest one (#4 Boy) looking like a giant when he is actually in fact typical in size for what we see for our puppies at 4 weeks to the smallest one (#1 Girl) who is a real live mighty mouse!

These puppies have been enjoying the toys we have placed in their whelping box for enrichment, although they still love interaction with their mom best of all!  The general temperaments that we can see emerging on the puppies so far are very sweet and people orientated puppies which falls in line to exactly what we have seen in past litters from Annalyse and also with Samuel.

Grooming of the puppies so far has included freshening their fur with puppy wipes as a non-invasive way to keep them clean at this stage, brushing them, and nail trimming.  They have been so relaxed for all of these new experiences!

In fact, we're so proud of this litter for how relaxed they are!  They love to play and have a good time, but when you pick them up for cuddles they melt into your arms!  And for this week's photos -- all of the photos you see were taken in one easy snap!  To have that kind of co-operation in puppies, especially young puppies, is something that we don't see every day! This is the type of thing that gets us excited to share wonderful pups like this with great families -- Annalyse outdid herself with these puppies for her last litter!

The puppies have been enjoying extra meals of canned food and kibbles that have seen softened in water in addition to nursing from Annalyse.  We will also be adding a water dish soon as there are some big changes coming up for the puppies!

We will be transitioning the puppies to our living room this weekend once all of Adelle's puppies have gone to their new homes and Daphne's puppies (that are currently in our living room) can be moved into our kitchen area.  It has worked out timing wise for Annalyse's puppies to move into our living room in perfect succession, and with each new transition brings a new level of socialization.

When our puppies are in the whelping box, they work on getting strong, their basic play skills, and the foundation for their desensitization to seeing new things like when we add new toys or a brightly coloured whelping pad (plush blanket) to their box.  And when they transition to our living room they can start seeing our daily routines and all the activity going on around them, and once in our kitchen area they are right in the heart of our home where most of the action happens! 

The puppies were dewormed today and their weights are as follows:

Puppy #1 ~ GIRL

Weight: 1 pound and 1.5 ounces

Puppy #2 ~ BOY

Weight: 1 pound and 12 ounces

Puppy #3 ~ BOY

Weight: 2 pounds and 3.5 ounces

Puppy #4 ~ BOY

Weight: 1 pound and 6 ounces

Puppy #5 ~ BOY

Weight: 1 pound and 7 ounces

Puppy #6 ~ BOY

Weight: 1 pound 7.5 ounces

Puppy #7 ~ GIRL

Weight: 1 pound and 1.5 ounces

Here is a video of the puppies romping around exploring and having fun!  They are at the stage where they are experimenting with co-ordination of their feet as they play, and they have little play barks, yips, and squeaks as they grow in their social skills that will carry them into their adulthood:

We were also able to capture these group photos of the puppies which again speaks to their amazing level of co-operation as it is quite a challenge to get young puppies who don't yet know the "sit" and "stay" command to be still for photos!  We let the puppies sit or lay down however they were comfortable for the picture of them lined up as they are young and there is no need to direct them being so young.  And for the photos of them laying down sleeping -- that's how they curled up for a nap after their photos and we thought you would enjoy seeing that too!

2 week old puppy update:

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Annalyse's puppies turn 2 weeks old on Saturday!  They are very content puppies that hardly make a sound!  They are able to actively crawl around their whelping box and are quite strong puppies, some puppies even pushing themselves up on their legs as they go!  Their eyes are not yet open as it is a couple days early for the average time for that to start to happen at 14-16 days old (the pups are currently 13 days old). Did you know that in addition to the fact that puppies are born blind, they are also born deaf?

Once their eyes are open we will introduce them to toys and their visual stimulation will begin!  Their ears will open up around the same time as their eyes and they will gain two new senses beyond being able to smell, taste, and feel. 

The puppies will be dewormed tomorrow when they officially turn 2 weeks of age.  There is a fair range of size in this litter with Puppy #1 -- GIRL being the smallest and Puppy #3 -- BOY being the largest!  If you click on the large photos in the gallery above it will open up in expanded mode and their birth order numbers will appear below their photos.

Here is a video of the puppies with their mommy:

The calm nature seen in the video speaks volumes about this beautiful litter!  Families LOVED Annalyse and Samuel's puppies in 2019 and this litter looks just as wonderful for their disposition!  We're so excited to share them with the families on the list!

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:

https://www.pleasantmeadowscanada.com/taking-home-puppy-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 Annalyse 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 Annalyse 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.  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 on  January 8th, 2021  ~ 1 day shy of 4 weeks!

To end this week's update here are some festive group photos of the puppies for you to enjoy:

Birth Announcement:

Early yesterday morning on December 12th, 2020, Annalyse gave birth to a large litter of 7 puppies -- 5 boys and 2 girls!  Annalyse is a seasoned mom so she is very attentive and all of her puppies are nursing vigorously and have settled well into life outside the womb.  

This is Annalyse's last litter for us and so it is very special and she did a marvellous job birthing the puppies, and we know that the next 8 weeks will be amazing!  Annalyse's mothering style is very "matter of fact" and confident, and when paired with Samuel, we know from their past puppies that they will be sweet-natured, highly intelligent, and there will be a range from cuddly to adventurous. We can't wait to share them with you as Annalyse and Samuel's puppies have always been some of our best!

Here is a little info about each puppy and their times of birth:
