Mikado Litter Week 4 and 5

19 Aug

The Mikado puppies are now moved into their X-pen apartments in our dining room. They have needle teeth and so Lali is most definitely weaning them. They seem to like goat’s milk and soft puppy food mash and will also crunch a bit on kibble. The puppies like to bark, and play rough and of course bite our feet when we get into the x-pen to change the puppy pads. Most of the puppies have caught on very quickly to pooping in the litter we have set up for them. In the next few weeks they will learn to only use the bathroom in the litter.  Hooray for potty-training! On not-too-hot days we’ve been taking them out the patio to run around, sniff everything and learn about new surfaces and sounds.

 

Mikado Litter Week 3

5 Aug

The puppies have their eyes open and instead of gerbils their noses are flattening out and they’re starting to look like little dogs. Each is oh-so-cute. They are now playing, wagging tails and are curious about new noises they can hear. Soon these chunky things will be heading to the x-pen in our dining room so they can be at the center of the action.

 

 

Mikado Litter Week Two

28 Jul

The  Lali and Havoc litter are growing by leaps and bounds.  We think they look like gerbils or furry baked potatoes at this stage. This week stars Magenta Girl – ‘Yum Yum’, Red Girl –  “Pitti Sing”, Purple Girl  – ‘Peep Bo” and Blue Boy –  “Nanki Poo”.

Naughty N’ Nice

Sadie and Havoc’s Naughty N’ Nice litter who were born December 17th, are currently 5 weeks old! They have been moved from the whelping box to a more permanent set of ex-pen apartments in our dining room. We’re trying to get them to “potty” in wood shavings in a plastic bin. It’s um, hit or miss as they say. They are rough housing, sleeping a lot, eating a lot, and have found out that laps are the best place to be (so vizsla). They are listening to the sweet sounds of desensitizing music (sirens, crying, etc) and seem pretty nonplussed by that and the noises from the kitchen next door. They are still weighed twice daily, given lots of cuddles and belly raspberries, and get their “teefies” checked regularly for showring practice. We still have 2 spots left on our waiting list for this litter.

Wags N’ Brags

New Grand Champion! So it turns out that Rory, GCH LaTierra’s Rory O’Rourke from the Sadie X Tosci litter looks like he will be doing very well for 2014. He finished his Grand Championship at the Greater Fredericksburg Kennel Club on Friday, January 10th, 2014. It was a 4 point major. Rory defeated the #5 dog in the country for 2013. Go Rory Go!

Congrats to Charlie, CH LaTierra’s Charlemagne, who won Best of Breed at Pasco Florida Kennel Club this past Sunday, Jan 19th 2014. 5 points towards his Grand Championship! Charlie went select the other days with 8 points towards his GCH this weekend.

Congrats to Rory who went select 3 days at the Annapolis Kennel Club show, and Best of Opposite on Sunday this weekend.
