Elfin Bella Dulce On The Same Paige & Bella Dulce Benji On Galloping Acres
had three beautiful pups on August 14th, 2014.
Paige & Benji's puppies have arrived ...
Paige is being a great mom to the puppies. Paige watches over them closely, cleans them and feeds them with such finesse. Some of our adult dogs enjoy brief visits with them.
We have given the pups their temporary names. We chose to name them after characters in the children's book "Stella Luna". Pip is an Irish pied female. The cream colored female puppy is Flitter. Flap is an Irish Pied male.
They are all completing the 'Super Dog' program, an early neurological stimulation program. Although our pups hear many sounds with our children and adult dogs, we have begun playing a 'Puppy Sounds' CD, so that the pups grow accustomed to many different sounds that may not be normally heard in our household.
Pip is an Irish Pied female.
Flitter is a cream colored female.
Flap is an Irish Pied male.
The pups are 3 weeks old. They are walking like puppies. Their eyes and ears opened last week. They like to sniff and snuggle when placed near our face or neck. They are exposed to Classical music and 'Puppy Sounds' music daily. They have had their nails trimmed several times while sleeping.
The pups are five weeks old. They spend the day in the family room with our children and our adult dogs. The adult dogs visit the pups often in the family room. The puppies also enjoy playing with the adult dogs in the kitchen. The pups have started eating homemade food, but they still prefer nursing. They are all doing beautifully with using the Potty Park and Ugo Dog.
Flap tries to figure out how to reach the adult dogs water bowls.
Flitter is intrigued by Flap's tail.
Flap investigates the dishwasher.
The pups are seven weeks old. They eat well, are very reliable with the potty, and love to play with the 'big' dogs. Destiny enjoys the pups the most and hesitiates to leave them at night. It is very sweet. Paige continues to be a wonderful mother to the pups. She spends a lot of time with them and still allows them to nurse on occassion. They all have at least a few teeth. They love to play on agility equipment. They all like toys and run after squeeky, rolling balls. They have been a true joy for us!
Paige was resting, and all three pups decided to join her.
The pups are nine weeks old. They will depart next week. We will miss their sounds, activity, wags, and sweet kisses. There is nothing sweeter than picking up one of the puppies and having Pip, Flitter, or Flap wag fiercely from excitement and enjoyment!
