Congratulations to Oliver!!!

Oliver (Rincon Oliver Twist, CD, NAP, NJP, RE,) will now add RAE to his list of titles. RAE is an advanced Rally title, which requires that the dog gets 10 Advanced B and 10 Excellent B Rally Q's (one of each on each of 10 days). Oliver and Amy started out the weekend with 6 double Q's and got 4 more this weekend, (Thur, Fri, Sat and Sun.)
Oliver also tried to qualify in Open obedience, but was not successful in that venue, but he did provide some comic relief on occasion. I'll get a new picture soon of Oliver. He and Meg and Mr. Darcy had great fun running around the motel room on Thursday night after the Specialty, they were very fun to watch as they played with great zeal. (we were very tired after working all day putting on the big show) It was really nice to stay the night right there at the show site.

7 weeks yesterday

Took these pics today, they were 7 weeks old yesterday.
I took a close up of the brindle boy with the blue eyes so you could all see those baby blues!
They are eating 5 times a day now, and completely weaned. They love their puppy food.

Almost 6 weeks old!

HI all
Sorry for the lack of posts of late. I'm getting ready to chair the Pem Specialty next week, and between making my lists of what needs doing, and feeding puppies, I've been remiss in taking photos.
So here's one I just took. Only seven are visible, (the funny little one is a warthog toy).
They do get to hang out in the dining room some of the time. That transition was fairly uneventful, with only a few of them thinking it was too scary the first day.
They are now eating 4 times a day, moving from ground kibble to regular puppy kibble, with less formula added to it each day.
One of the brindle boys has very blue eyes, (not okay in the show world, but gorgeous nonetheless).
More later.

4 weeks old already!

Hard to believe they are 4 weeks old already. Decker still feeds them, but they are up to three meals a day in their little bowls. The best eater; the little red girl, she just starts right in and eats til she's done. Right now they are eating formula, with a bit of crushed kibble mixed in. As the week progresses I'll add more kibble and water to dilute the formula. We'll move out to the dining room in a day or two. Right now I'm a bit under the weather, but I'll get them moved soon.

Food, Glorious Food!

This was taken yesterday, as they were either eating or done eating. They are all getting quite efficient in their eating. dispatching their tablespoon of formula and ground kibble quite quickly.
I'll probably add lunch tomorrow, right now they get breakfast and dinner. Decker enjoys cleaning the little bowls, of course.

Something New!

The puppies got to eat out of little bowls today, a little bit of formula and a tiny bit of ground puppy kibble. They all decided it was very tasty.
