The puppies are now 10 weeks and Kassio and Kastanje has both left for their new very good homes

We still have Kalle and he is really enjoyng himself - he is getting all the attention He plays with his mamma Joana and aunt Rosa. He tries to play with Bob the cat, and palys and cuddles with us and the children.
He enjoys playing outsie and is not afraid of anything but its too cold for him to play outside for very long - then he sits infront of our front door and barks:" I want to get in!"

They are now very very active. They play all the time - with eachother, with Joana, with Rosa, with us -  bothe the children and the adults and they also try to play with Bob the cat but he has had enough He has been the play uncle to 8 litters but now he feels to old ( he is about 11 years old).

When the puppies have played they get very sleepy ans then they sleep where they are - under the sofa, in the bathroom ( in the shower) or under the table.

They love having guests and we let thm meet all differnt kind of people and children. They have gut their last deworming paste and their new kennel klub numbers.

We enjoy to play in the garden when its not to cold - but it's a big world out there!

Kassio and Jonas - love is: a cute puppy

3 weeks

The puppies are now 3 weeks old and doing so good They run, play, growl, bite eachother and their mother. They have had their first meal and loved it They have had their first intestinal worm remover and hated it They have been saying hello to Bob our cat and playing a bit with Rosa when mum is not watching
They love exploring the house and are very active when they are awake. But then they are also very tired afterwards
They have been outside a very warm and sunny day, and that was very exiting

Love is: arms full of puppies!

The puppies

Joana had her puppies the 1st. of september 2008 It was a bit long birth but she did a very good job She wanted me to be there all the time so I was very honored The first puppy she tried to push out 3 o'clock in the morning. She had good contractions and pushed well but nothing happened. I called the vet and told that we would come. Joana into the car and of we drove! When we had been driving 3 minutes Jonas our son said: what is that sound Joana is making? He looked and saw that Joana had given birth to a darkbrindle male We were so excited! We started to go back, but before we went home Joana had given birth to another - but unfortunately dead puppy- a big red female with white markings- there was nothing we could do.
Well home Joana took a little break, and then came a little brindle male with white markings - alive and well.
The next one was unfortunately also dead - a big red male. Joana had a long break now, but I could feel at least 1 puppy and after some while she gave birth to a little red female - alive and very lively.
Then she was finish - she nursed the puppies so well and was tired but satisfied The litter was without any faults and are weighing from 400 g. - 520 g. Joana has a lot of milk and the puppies are drinking and sleeping so all is well

Joana 9 weeks pregnant

Joana is now 9 weeks pregnant and we are just waiting for her to give birth Her temperature has fallen and rised again so we hope she will give birth tonight (sunday to monday). She is now sleeping and I am waiting for her to start so another sleepless night - it is so exciting to see the puppies

Joana 8 weeks pregnant

Now Joana is 8 weeks pregnant  She sleeps a lot and her main interest now is food and dig holes in our garden She is trying to find a perfect spot in our garden to deliver her puppies as she has done every time - but offcorse it ends with her deliver them in the litterbox

JOANA 7½ WEEKS PREGNANT

Now Joana is 7½ weeks pregnant and her stomach is now quite big She is hungry all the time so she is now eating 3 times a day She doesn't want to play with other dogs anymore but if yoy throw a ball she i ready to play She loves balls.
We are starting to build a new litter box ( the last one we had we threw out when we moved because it was much too heavy-it took 3 men to lift it)

Joana i 6. uge

Joana is just fine But she is extremely happy about food She has become a cute litle stomach and some big "tits"
