The puppies are here! 2 boys and 2 girls arrived on 4/27/18. All puppies are $2,000. This will be a breeding with our own Bunny and GCH CH Honor If Life Gets 2 Hard 2 Stand – Kneel (Kneel). Ready for forever homes around 7/7/2018. Please contact us for an application if interested. See Available Puppies page for pictures, pedigrees and health testing information.
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.
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!
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.
Wow! Tomorrow the babies will be three weeks old! Everyone is doing well. Their eyes are all open and they’re starting to react to sounds. They have tripled in weight, and in the case of one of the girls, Annie, quadrupled! Their pigmentation is coming in nicely (noses and lips are changing from pink to black) and I can tell now that one of the white boys, Merlin, will actually have chocolate pigmentation. I posted 3 week pictures to the Available Puppy page, so check them out. We have 2 boys and 1 girl available at this time (we’re keeping an eye on Annie for show potential). Comments are welcome!
What a good mommy dog! Willow feeds the babies:
