Heidi and Rockit’s Litter – Week Seven


Mr. Chocolate Fudge out for a romp!


“Titanium”

Timing was crucial if her mission stood any chance of success as she assumed her primary position around the back of the target. With the precision and agility of a Navy SEAL, she sprang into action, her lithe, powerful legs churning. One, two, three…..Geronimo! She was in place. And now to explain:  our dear Whitney whose own litter has long since gone to their new homes, is the self-appointed surrogate to not only Sierra’s litter, but also Heidi’s. What she does is run to the far end of the whelping box to attract the puppies’ attention. Once they’re all in place, Whitney runs to the opposite end of the box, leaps up onto the sofa and catapults herself into the whelping box in order to nurse Heidi’s puppies. Occasionally the puppies catch on so Whitney enlists Sierra’s aid as the decoy to allow her the time to get into position to jump into the box. We haven’t quite figured out if Whitney just has a magnanimous character or nipples made of titanium. And where is Heidi throughout all of this, you might ask? She is lounging on the cool floor in the adjoining room, of course.

The puppies have a benevolent nature about them too. They welcomed two houseguests from Sierra’s litter: their friends Miss Cosmopolitan who has since gone to her new home in Calgary and Miss Limoncello who will be leaving on Sunday. The gang had a tremendous amount of fun together this past week. On rainy days, they had a hall pass to play indoors with their deluxe play station and ball pool. Once they discovered just what kind of treasures awaited them, they wasted no time in diving into the pool sending balls scattering about the entire space and making a big racket banging around the activity centre. Everyone had a blast! On the flip side though, it would appear that Miss Blueberry Tart didn’t read the sign about not peeing in the pool. Shhhhhh!

Where last week’s outdoor adventures were all about rocks, this week’s outdoor theme was sticks, sticks and more sticks. There were sticks for one, sticks for two and even group sticks. All the moms were around too; either chaperoning, providing liquid refreshments to the group or even just getting involved in the action with some sticks of their own. Heidi’s litter had the profound gift of having three adoring mothers caring for them.

As our time together winds down, we reflect on all the love, happiness and kisses we’ve shared. These are memories we’ll treasure forever. As you go along your journey with your new families, think of us sometimes and remember, “What a wonderful world it is”. So long, little ones!

That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”.  See you next litter!

Heidi and Rockit’s Litter – Week Six


Fun times outside this week!

“The Lap Pool”

It can’t be a coincidence. This week But we had to fish Mr. Bunny, one of the group’s beloved stuffed animals, out of the water bowl yet again. Given the repercussions following last week’s apparent hazing incident, we know that the little ones have surely learned to treat all creatures with the kindness and respect they deserve. But as usual, no one is talking so we can only surmise that Mr. Bunny must really just enjoy swimming.

As we look around the whelping box at the puppies, we’re beginning to wonder if there’s something about the food or the water they’re getting, but several of Heidi’s pups appear as though they’re sporting Afros. We can almost hear disco music playing in the background! Their fashion choices aside, the little ones are all gaining well and looking great. Their muzzles are lengthening and are beginning to look a bit more like the adults they will eventually become. Their emotions are becoming apparent too, so they whine to show fear, whimper if they’re hurt and bark when they are excited, want attention or are ready for dancing. They love entertaining visitors and delight in being cuddled.

Now that the group is accustomed to being outdoors, they’ve been able to enjoy both playtime and picnics in the fresh country air. Their play is becoming a bit more coordinated and adult-like, but of course they’re still just kids at heart. This week, the pups spent much of their time rock climbing. They’ve mastered the skills necessary, not only to climb up, but get themselves back down again, even if that meant vaulting onto the lawn several inches below. On several occasions they were joined by Sierra’s litter with their adopted houseguest Mr. Raven from Whitney’s litter, prior to his departure to British Columbia. The gang all got along famously despite their differences in size. The moms were in a festive mood too, as Whitney, Sierra and Heidi all took their turn providing refreshments to the wee ones irrespective of whose litter they belonged to.

With all the action, it stands to reason that most of the group’s activities culminate in a big snore fest. And as they lie there on their backs, twitching and wondering about their future families and adventures to come, we’re sure that there’s a voice in each puppy’s head saying “all I do is dream of you”.

That’s it for now, but be sure to join us next week for another riveting installment of “Puppy Tales”.
