We chose Juno (formerly Kit Kat) from Macy’s third litter as our next breeding female and family pet.
She has a wonderful laidback personality and goofy, playful demeanor. She’s less ball driven than her mom, but will retrieve a stick or other toy. She leaves the balls for mom. She absolutely loves kids and they love her right back. She was the perfect addition to our family
She’s taller and longer than Macy, but still on the petite side. She loves the water and will just swim for enjoyment, not only to retrieve something.
We have to wait until Juno turns two (in May 2022) before her health checks can happen and we can start thinking about breeding. If you’re looking for a puppy, contact Tobi to join the waiting list. We will not have any puppies until mid 2022 at the earliest.
And just like that, we have come to our final Sunday with these pups. They are 7 and a half weeks old, and head to the vet tomorrow for their exams and vacines. Tomorrow is also the day that our family selects the pup that we will keep, and all the other female puppy families will hear from me to find out which one will be theirs.
Six weeks old means it’s time to get serious about all kinds of grown up things like weaning, car rides, manding and making friends with the vacume. They are weighing in at around 7 – 9 lbs, around the size of a newborn baby.
Today we ran an errand and six pups got to come. We also played in the puppy arena, AKA an empty swimming pool. They’re also getting playtime in the yard one daily basis. So many fun things to do!
The pups have really been busy lately, playing hard and exploring every place they can get. I try to make their enclosures a little different each day. If the weather’s not too hot they spend most of the day outside and are learning to master the step on our deck.
