Week 5 Puppy Update

Another highly eventful week for the youngsters, with several important milestones reached. The erratic weather has meant that the pups have only this last week been able to get outside for the first time, but some warm sunny days have now given them lots of opportunities to explore their outdoor run and gain valuable exposure to outdoor sites and sounds at the same time.

Lots of visitors have come to see them too, with many toes chewed and many laps fallen asleep on.

At the same time, they transitioned seamlessly from hand-feeding of solid foods to using their big-boys-and-girls weaner feeder, something that every generation of Belatarr puppies before them have used and benefitted from.

Also, just like every previous generation of Belatarr puppies, these 5 love snuggling into their mini-den, whether they are indoors or out:

One inside…
Three inside…
All Five inside!

And finally, this week’s portrait shots:

Week 3 Puppy Update

Big changes this week as the pups’ eyesight and hearing come fully online, their walking grows stronger and more stable and they start to explore their new world. We can now finally see their rapidly developing heads properly too, so without further ado, these are their 3-week-old headshots:

And not forgetting, some action shots as the pups romp (and chew) together.

Week 2 Puppy Update.

A big week for the youngsters, with their first attempts to walk (the wobbly spider phase) starting on day 11 and Miss Purple taking the lead by opening one eye on the evening of day 12. Everyone’s eyes are just about semi-open now, (day 14) but it will be a blurry further week or so before things come into proper focus and they can finally see where they are. The past few days have also seen (or heard, at least) a variety of mini barks and sleep baby-growls and squeaks as their ears have opened and they start to practise their vocal skills.

It’s exhausting work, being 14 days old.

Puppies Arrive!

We are thrilled to be able to announce the safe arrival of our new generation of Belatarr puppies. 4 girls and 1 boy, all wriggling, chirruping and feeding vigorously! Proud mum Aja is wonderfully attentive and maternal but also very happy to resume her pre-pregnancy athletic lifestyle, now that she’s no longer carrying all that extra weight with her.

Puppies: week 7

After enduring endless weeks of rain, high winds and unseasonably cold temperatures, conditions have at last returned to more normal for August and the puppies have finally been able to get out onto the grass, making life more interesting for them and much easier for us. Now fully weaned and (most, at least) with a full set of puppy teeth, they are readily tucking into their raw diet interspersed with goat’s milk and will soon be heading off to their exciting new lives in their loving new homes, so this coming week will be their final one with the whole litter together.

Puppies: week 6

Time is flying by and the puppies are looking very grown-up now, fully weaned from mum and getting stronger and more boisterous by the day. Once again, the often terrible weather has meant that they are indoors more than outdoors, but they certainly make the most of it when the sun does make an appearance.

Puppies: week 5.

The pups have been dodging torrential rain and gale-force winds throughout most of this week but we’ve still managed to get them out for at least a few hours every day and, as a result, they have quickly become immune to all of the racket from the storms raging in the trees around them.

They have also enjoyed lots of visitors and additional cuddles through the week, as well as becoming super-adept at eating solids from their feeding bowls. Now, at 5 weeks of age, they have transitioned almost entirely onto their raw food diet with mum making visits to feed only once a day, and this will drop off further over the coming days so they should be fully weaned by this time next week.

Developmental changes are more gradual this week, but a brief break in the rain (if not the wind!) did allow us to get some extra head-shots of them today:

Puppies: week 4

Another huge week for the youngsters as their eyesight finally comes fully online allowing them to play and chew their way excitedly around their ever-expanding worlds.

Semi-decent weather has allowed them to be outside in their run for at least a few hours every day of this past week, taking in the sunshine, rain, winds and all points in between. Just like all Belatarr generations before them they also immediately gravitated towards their mini den for snoozy puppy pile-ups:

They are now well on their way towards being weaned and have quickly become experts at eating solid food from their Weenafeeder in-between visits form Mum. This is also the most significant change in their head shape, as muzzles elongate, eyes widen and skulls develop to give them fully formed puppy heads. Here they all are, outside in the dappled sunshine this morning:
