The puppies are thirteen weeks old!

The Avengers are thirteen weeks old, and the first will begin his preparations to head to his forever home soon.  I’m bad.  I like to keep my babies long past the time when they are babies.  Heck, I didn’t place Deedee (from Roo’s last litter) until she was a year and a half old.  And I’ll be keeping a couple of these little ones back to show (after completing their Canadian Championships they MAY be available).  So it feels really odd to be saying goodbye to one of my boys when he’s still such a tiny little stinker.  But the home he’ll be heading to?  It’s absolutely fabulous – or he wouldn’t be going there.  So I have every confidence that he will be treasured beyond measure.

That said, here’s a couple videos from the last few days:

Rogers and Bruce playing on our bed a couple of days ago while Damon and I attempted to watch an episode of How I Met Your Mother – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9g20wuLWy8

All four boys playing with Lily-Ann on her bed yesterday as she attempted to charm them into being polite little princes:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MguVgW9Gmeo

After playing for a couple of hours, the girl had most of the boys tired out.  So here we are with what was left of them, it’s mostly a video of Tony:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_nKwZUyWlw

Have a great night everyone, see ya in the new year!

Puppy Puzzle – Hastings Style Evaluation

Today the boys of the Avenger Litter turned eight weeks old…  kinda hard to imagine there are people who send their babies home at this point.  I can’t even imagine sending them off so early.  For us, eight weeks marks the time for puppy evaluations and well baby check-ups with Dr. Wickstrom.  So that’s what we did with our afternoon.

The boys all had a blast playing on the floor of the exam room – as did a few members of the Acadia Vet Clinic staff.  Our boys aren’t shy, and are happy to have a chance to zoom around and explore a new environment with new people.  Altina was very impressed with each of the boys, and complimented “mom” on doing such a great job with them.  LOL

I figure this is also a good a time as any to put up a page for them on my Sidhe Dogs website.  After all, with evaluations as great as theirs, I wanted to brag a little – and really, that’s what my Chihuahua website is for: a chance to brag on all my wonderful babies.  So I’d like to invite you to stop on over there to have a peek at some photos of the boys on our kitchen table – doing their best job at self stacking – and to have a good look at the results of our puppy puzzle evaluations.
