Ida Mae’s Pups are Growing!

by Margaret on January 19, 2017

20170118_183746

Our yellow girl is tipping the scales at 3.8 pounds.

She is the “Big Girl” of this litter.

20170118_183734

She has almost outgrown the scale.

20170118_184126

This is our largest black male. He wiggles a lot,

making it hard to read the digital scale.

20170118_184105

We love watching the puppy faces change.

They are all starting to look like “Real Dogs” now.

20170118_183721

By next week this face will have changed even more.

20170118_183621

Our yellow boys, Mr. Green and Mr. Black.

Nap time……………..

20170118_222310

The puppy pile is expanding and covers more space now.

20170118_195706

It must be so cozy and warm in the middle of that pile.

20170118_181256

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww………………..

Ida Mae’s Pups Eyes Are Opening!

by Margaret on January 17, 2017

     20170117_081438 Mr. Green has had his eyes open a little longer than the rest of his litter.

20170117_081545

Can you see the little shine in Ms. Orange’s eyes?

20170117_081245

“Hello World”

20170117_081244

This little pup stayed still just long enough for a photo.

Then he wanted back with his mom.

20170117_081129

We love it when their eyes open!

They are changing every day.

20170117_081226

Enough photos. This one wants a nap.

Ida Mae Delivered 9 Puppies New Year’s Eve!

by Margaret on January 4, 2017

20170101_101150

Ida Mae is the proud mom of nine beautiful Labrador puppies.

She kept us busy all of New Year’s Eve.

It was the BEST way to start the New Year!!

2 yellow boys, 1 yellow girl. 3 black boys and 3 black girls.

All are healthy and gaining weight like crazy!

20170104_074538

Can you see this little one’s tongue hanging out while he sleeps?

His face and feet pads will turn black very quickly.

20170104_081328

Ida Mae refuses to leave her puppies, so we bring her

“Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in Bed”.

20161231_230622

This is Ida Mae while she was still delivering puppies.

20170102_112235

Grandmother, Gracie Clementine came in to see her new Grandpuppies.

Ida Mae is her daughter.

20161231_082409

Earlier in the morning Ida Mae was trying to get comfortable on the couch.

Tina is telling her “You can’t have your puppies here.”

20161231_104422

After the couch, Ida Mae decided maybe the king size bed

would be “Just Right” for her.

We had to show her the whelping box that was waiting for her.

20161231_104426

 This whelping box has had many litters of puppies born inside it.

It gives the mom a secure feeling. We bring it into our bedroom

when we know puppies are coming.

The puppies will stay here for four weeks.

20161231_161603

This is Ida Mae’s First Born! He is a little yucky looking

but Ida Mae cleaned him up gently.

20161231_175530

We are at 3 pups at this point. 1 yellow boy, 1 yellow girl and 1 black girl.

All they want to do is eat!!!

20170103_192214

Last night Sally and Sammy Sweetheart were allowed to come in

and meet the new pups. They like watching from the bed.

20170103_192237

Everybody wants to see the babies!!!

They will all be involved eventually with Ida Mae’s pups.

20161221_191236

Brodie Good Boy turned 1 year old on December 21.

His mom is Angie and his dad is Big Al.

Birthday Parties always include singing and cupcakes all around!

20161221_190908

Brodie sits next to Cooper and waits for his cupcakes.

Sammy Sweetheart feels she is “above the crowd” and sits on the stone table.

20161221_190928

Everybody knows they must wait their turn.

20161221_190849All eyes on those cupcakes.

We have our Christmas tree up on a table and “protected” by a small puppy fence.

Otherwise, those Labrador tails will knock it down.

20161221_190839

Can you see our little Pug, Jazz?

She makes sure she gets her own cupcake.

20161221_190831

Brodie is in the bright blue collar.

Cooper is in the more green collar. The boys stick together.

20161221_180841

Mike has their undivided attention now.

New Digs and New Food

by Margaret on October 7, 2016

20161007_060822

Some of Gracie’s boys are starting to eat puppy chow.

20161007_060902

These two kept coming back for more!

20161007_060924

Angie’s pups have two dishes! A few really get “into” their food.

20161007_060755

 They have taken over our living room! 18 puppies

meant we needed more room for them to run around

and still stay separate.

Gracie’s pups are on the left. Angie’s pups are on the right.

They experience ALL the sounds and events of our home WITH us!

20161007_081550

Angie’s boy, Mr. Red is very comfortable napping

after his breakfast today.
