Hudson and Faith Litter – Week Seven

Ice cream bar is always open!


“Velcro”


Faith is in line to earn a trophy for “best mom”. At this point in time, most moms have long since abandoned the notion of nursing their pups due to each one’s 28 razor sharp teeth. Not this gal. She selflessly obliges them and is always at their beck and call. Once in their presence, they seem stuck to her like Velcro.

They were impervious to the cold and the wet snow which dotted their furry coats. It was as though Faith’s brood was training for the winter Olympics and you couldn’t find a happier group of youngsters. An epic outdoor festival from start to finish, the gang played chase, practised ski jumps, tobogganing or luge, went hiking and exploring or worked on the igloo that their mom was desperate to have. Ever the good sport, Faith spent the better part of her time providing the group with libation. The little ones were tireless as they raced around and even gave us a workout as we attempted to collect them to put everyone back in their whelping box. Once they were nestled in the warmth of their little shelter, it didn’t take long for everyone to drift off to sleep….including mom.

The Family Day long weekend afforded us many opportunities to spend time with each puppy – one on one. Not only have they bonded with their mom and their littermates, the pups relished every moment that they spent being fussed over and cuddled by their human admirers. They are all immensely curious about every little thing. There was no shortage of kissing, nibbling and cuddling and there’s nothing like the trust they demonstrate by falling asleep in our laps.

As our time with the puppies draws to a close, we cherish every moment we’ve spent with them and find comfort in knowing how much happiness they will bring to their new families. They have given us so many kisses and memories that we’ll treasure always. 

So long, little ones. We wish you all the best in your journey, but most of all, we wish you love. 

P.S.  We’ll be looking for your picture postings on Instagram! #regalgoldensfamilytree

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

Hudson and Faith Litter – Week Six

Miss Powder Puff wants to go outside in the snow!

“Cabin Fever”


Cabin fever. We’ve all felt it at one point in time or another. It even happens to six-week-old pups and now they’re old enough and smart enough to do something about it. One day while Mr. Orange Blossom was having a snooze in front of the entrance to the whelping box, Mr. Bulrush used his brother as a step stool to launch himself over the opening into the vast expanse of the living room so he could enjoy some private time with his mom. On another occasion, Faith inadvertently compressed all the slats which normally block the entrance so that the entire group escaped for an unscheduled walkabout.

Despite the mountains of snow that have accumulated on our property this past week, we were able to clear off an area on the patio to allow the pups to experience their first taste of both the great outdoors and winter. Some litters initially find the experience a bit overwhelming, but this bunch was unfazed. They wasted no time in getting busy chasing their mom in the hopes of an alfresco snack.  After a time, Faith wandered away to cool her milk bar off in the snow, all the while keeping a watchful eye on her offspring. Playtime continued and each puppy followed their own agenda. Some found a willing partner to joust with while others tried their hand at mountain climbing or practiced climbing up and down the stoop.

Before long the crisp Caledon air took its toll on this bunch and they settled into a good long nap when they came back inside. Of course, now that they’ve had a sampling of the good life, they’re all most anxious for any further opportunity for more outdoor playtime. Whenever Storm and Misty pass by the box on their way outside, the pups line up along the front of the whelping box in the off chance that they’ll get to join them.  They’re always hopeful that it will mark the beginning of a new adventure.

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

Hudson and Faith Litter – Week Five

It's all about playing this week!


“Things that go bump in the Night”


The sun had long since bid farewell. The moon was full but unable to penetrate the cloud cover leaving it quite dark in the house. Wind noisily pushed its way through the trees and tiny pellets of icy snow careened off the windows. Off in the distance a coyote was announcing his presence. In the far corner of the house, we could hear a commotion. Did we remember to lock the living room door where the puppies were sleeping? Had the door blown open? There it was again….a thump and then another one or two in quick succession. We quickly made our way down the hall to investigate but as we approached, the situation became quite clear. The puppies were wrestling and when one of them landed on top of the turtle with the pressure activated music box in its shell, a chorus of “London Bridge is Falling Down” began to play. We were all safe and sound after all.

The dynamic in the whelping box is evolving. This is the beginning of the most influential socialization period for the puppies. They’re learning to communicate with each other and with us by wagging their tails. With the increased control over their facial muscles, they are making expressions and are beginning to reveal their personalities and communicate their opinions. They spend longer periods of time awake and they use it to engage in some manner of play with their siblings whether head butting or wrestling. They’re also craving a lot of attention and affection and fortunately that’s something that’s not hard to provide. Did we mention that this bunch is just plain exceptionally cute?

Despite the activity in their quarters, this group will likely go on record as one of the quietest litters ever. In the past, we’ve had some little ones that screech almost from the day they’re born until the day they leave. Mind you, their forever families assure us that they’re quiet once they leave here. We’re thinking it must have something to do with the water or perhaps it’s group dynamics. On that note, since their food is now prepared a bit dryer, the puppies are drinking plenty of water to keep hydrated. Faith still nurses the puppies occasionally to supplement their diet of moistened puppy food, albeit with waning enthusiasm. Fortunately everyone is demonstrating good manners in the mess hall.

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