Puppy Socialization Begins

We had two delightful boys over to cuddle the puppies. Their parents came along too.  I explained the importance of their job. The puppies need to enjoy the experience and not be frightened.  They took their job very seriously. Everyone enjoyed the experience absolutely. The next cuddlers come this afternoon. More pics to follow, check back soon.

Laraby gets the first child cuddle. He LOVES it!

Little Scamp was worth the wait.

Precious wee Scamp. It took him 5 hours after big brother Wally was born for Scamp to make up his mind, but he emerged very lively and eager to grow. He was the tiny one, but he soon caught up to his brother Laraby and sister Irena.

The runt of the litter, Scamp was a nail-biting five hour wait after his siblings, and has now caught up in size to his sister. This is little scamp right after he was born.

The Standard Poodle Puppies at a week old are adorable! Fat and Happy!

What an amazing first week it’s been. The “Wee Scamp”  the puppy we waited for 5 hours for at the end of the litter,  has filled out with determination and is now as big as his sister.  He may never catch up to Wally (the Walrus!), who was puppy number 3.  Claire is an amazing Momma, keeping the babies warm, clean and VERY well fed!

Stay tuned for eye opening celebrations which we expect any day now!!
