Puppy Galore!

Well, now that we all are staying in our houses and gardens and leave home only for urgent shopping (like searching for toilet paper), it is quite annoying to face curfews the next days due to too many people acting without reason and responsibility. 

So we try to cheer up all people being worried about their own health and the health of family and friends and about their existence. Maybe tons of pictures of puppies playing brightes your days a little bit.

Just for the record: They are all being awaited by their furever families!

Full up!

The happy foursome took a long nap after their first lunch, consisting of watered puppy food. They had instantly launched into the bowl and emptied it quickly.

Finally mommie Kira came to clean up the mess. Apparently everyone enjoyed the meal.

Another step ahead growing up. 🙂

Happy D’Babies

Now that the sweet little foursome is with us for more than a week, growing nicely, we cherish this boon to see them all chubby and neat and their mom feeling well. So well that she is demanding her midday walkies, enjoying some time with the pack.

Please Welcome The D’babies!

Last Wednesday, February 5th, time had come for Kira (Zausel’s Red Rose) to give birth to her babies. She had spent the night night before restlessly and wanted to stay in the welping box. In the afternoon, after going through hard labor, the first puppy was born, a mostly black boy with a black mask, weighing ~600 g. He was instantly looking for the milk bar. About half an hour later Kira quite easily gave birth a little grey-white puppy girl of only 490 g, but as hungry and determined as her brother.

After that poor Kira was again suffering from hard labor that seemed not to end. She had already lost some amniotic fluid, and when finally the third baby was born, he was dead. Kira was exhausted and was unable to calm down. At least she was so upset that she did not take much notice of the little black angel. So she did not look for him, but was lying side by side with her first two babies, taking care of them as best as she could.

After 3 hours the fourth puppy was born, another black boy of 580 g that instantly screamed for food. Now finally Kira found some rest. We knew there was another puppy in her belly waiting to work its way out, but we wanted her to recover from that trial. And so she rested, taking care of her babies and taking a nap in between. 

At almost 2 am the last black boy smoothly found his way out, the biggest one (about 620 g). Meanwhile Kira was feeling much better, no more panting and burrowing.

The next morning all four pups were moving around and getting nursed and their mom looked quite happy.

Of course we are sad that the perfect little boy (~500 g) di not make it, but deeply grateful about Kira and her D’babies doing fine.

 

Final Spurt For The D’babies!

SInce we didn’t ge a clear result about the number of pups by sonography on January 6th and Kira is growing quite big (27 kg / 60 lbs), we had an x-ray done in our veterinary clinic today. There are 5 pups bouncing about in her belly, one has already taken the pole position head first. 😀

Suspense is nearly killing us and we are looking forward to welcome the little huskies in our family and pack. Yet Kira is not in a good mood, because she cannot work out and we actually do not let her jump into or out of the car. She must not do that at the moment, the risk of hurting her or the pups is too high. One boring week is still lying ahead, and we are going to spoil her rotten, so it is not too annoying for her. We know that she will be over the moon, as soon as she has her babies around.

At this point we would like to say big thank you to our verterinary clinic in Heskem-Mölln for their attentive and affectionate care they give to all our dogs, particularly to the moms-to-be. We can highly recommend this vet clinic!

Planned Litters for 2020

As of yet, we are planning two litters for next year.

The first one will – hopefully – be bred by Shakaar (Inner Vision Carbon Monoxide) out of Kira (Zausel’s Red Rose). With everything going well this litter will be born early February and some time around Easter they will have grown enough to move to their furever families.

We have not decided if Opra (Inner Vision Wolfblood) or Ezri (Zaltana Kissed By An Angel In Kahnawake) will be the dam of the second litter. Depending on the girls’ seasons these pups will be born in summer 2020. Also we have not decided yet who will sire this litter.

Perhaps, if there are enough people interested in a pup from our kennel, both girls will have a litter, so we might have three.

Please contact us as soon as possible. We would like to get to know the future families of our pups quite well. We are no back yard breeding puppy traffickers, instead we are looking for the best homes!

Past Due…

I should have read the terms for awarding titles in our club more carefully, then it would not have taken this long, until Kira got her well-deserved title – our girl is a

Junior Champion (DCNH)

as of yet, and we are proud of her.

Especially Sisko who came along with her to some of the shows.

Summertime

It is pretty warm, a wonderful summer day. In fact, there is nothing to boast about today. The dogs are relaxing and it is just fine to watch them.

Ezri and Berni have been romping around the place all morning, now they are looking for shadowy places, like the others. Kira takes care of her little boy and he is enjoying her loving attention very much.

Kira and Opra are becoming more acquainted, due to Opra’s constantly being close and friendly. These two are going to be a great team in all aspects.

Meanwhile Ezri has retreated into the house. Lying at the terrace door watching seems to be very relaxing.
