PuppyCam is Here!

The puppy cam is here!  You can follow the babies’ antics in real time at http://www.mycampage.com/raleighhavanese!  They are still in their temporary crate for the next week or so as they master the art of walking, then will move to their larger enclosure.  The puppy cam will usually be up from around 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.

The question frequently comes up what the difference is between full registration and limited registration.  “Limited” registration sounds kind of scary, but that’s actually the type of registration that is appropriate for most of our puppy buyers.  Put simply, it means that you are purchasing your puppy to be a pet and that you will not be showing or breeding it.  Full registration is needed if you are going to show your puppy or if you are planning on breeding it in the future.  Both types of registration are “AKC Registered.”   We do occasionally sell puppies with full registration, but only on a co-owner basis.

I knew the puppy cam was a big hit with all of you, but I didn’t realize just how popular!  Willow Springs Havanese and Labradors made the top 25 webcams on Earthcam for 2012!  You can check out the full list here:  http://www.earthcam.com/top25/2012/25 in 2012

Puppies are a week old!

Here’s a shot of some of the puppies from our last lab litter at one week old.  As you can see, they’re fat as can be!  Lydia is a great mom!

The babies turned 5 weeks old yesterday and they are growing so fast!  Their coats are starting to come in and they’re getting fluffy.  I gave them their first bathes and blow dry the other day.  Everyone did fine with it.  Paisley thought the bath was horrible but that hair dryer was actually pretty cool, so I guess he takes after his mother.  When I’m blow drying my hair in the mornings, Willow will come into the bathroom and have me blow the air at her while she rolls on the carpet so I don’t miss any spots.  Anyway, I posted their pictures on the “Available Puppy” page if you’d like to check them out.  I especially like the one of Chase who I think might have a future in doggy modeling:

 Too cute, right?

Today is the puppies four week birthday and they’re really starting to realize that there’s more to the world than their puppy pen.  Our 2 year old yellow lab, Lydia, has been fascinated with them from the start, and now it’s becoming mutual:

Stay tuned for the babies’ 4 week portraits!
