  1. Primary Peepers

    November 2, 2010 by myeye

    I went in for a good night cuddle with the baybeez and I saw eye slits.  You’ll never believe it, but the first puppy to peek out on the world is our little Reba.  Perhaps by morning, some of the behemoths will have decided to look around, but the first looker is the first born and smallest of the crew.  I suppose I could have blinded her with the camera flash, but I’ll hold off until I can photograph in daylight.  Hi, little Reba, welcome to the world.

  2. We’re Doing Cardi Claus Again

    November 2, 2010 by myeye

    Janet over at Simple Things (also known as Scout and Spencer’s mom) has volunteered to be Cardi Claus for a second year.  So jump on over to her blog to join in this blogger gift exchange.  It was great fun last year (I have a throw and candle and neat Cardi ornament to prove it).

  3. Que Pasta?

    The puppies still don’t have eyes this morning.  They won’t be two weeks old until tomorrow and we all know a watched puppy will not open its eyes.  They have begun lurching around the whelping box like drunken sailors, barking miniature Cardi barks.  They are used to being handled and cuddle up so I can sniff puppy breath — what a great pick-me-up.  Time to clip the ends of their little nails to save their mom.  All four are voracious eaters and the weights reflect it.

    Sleeping off the meal 11-2-2010

    Besides her regular (increased amount) two raw meals a day, Leidy is free-feeding on Taste of the Wild and has been through almost 15 pounds of the stuff in two and a half weeks.

    Leidy and the babies 11-2-2010

    Vaccine and microchips are ordered and should be here tomorrow — not that I need them yet — and a new supply of  Wubbas is on its way as well — I’ll need those very soon.  I have wormer here so will begin dosing everyone before too long.

    My Element is on a recall for the ignition and it’s due for servicing, so tomorrow morning I must take it to the dealer in Rio Rancho — THAT’S out of my way, but then it will be done before I start the daily trek to Santa Fe on the 15th.  The trial in Federal Court up there will only last three days, but they will be the longest days ever.

    Chase is entered at Knoxville this weekend.  It will be his first time in the conformation ring since June.  I think Cheryl will be holding him down because he LOVES being a show dog!
