Puppies at 13 Days
Pups at 17 days.
Kabul is in the middle, and two sisters are play-biting each other.
One of the little girls (Dylan) climbs over Mom, looking for the squeaky spider toy that was making all the noise.
April 27, 1998 - 24 Days - Pups are now started on solid food, but still nursing. They make little barks, play, show rudimentary whelpbox housebreaking - usually waddling off to the newspaper when they wake up, and after they eat or play. They are responding to my voice and sometimes come waggly tailed for tummy/chest scritches, sometimes flopping over for more. Each day, I try to show them something new. Day 24 wasn't the first day ever that they'd been outside, but this time it was for a couple hours, rather than a few minutes.
Kabul is still the darkest pup; one of the girls is greyish (Zor); the other (Dylan) is more reddish with a white ribbon marking on her shoulder. Both girls have short snips of white on the nose, the boy has a very faded snip at this point. The girls are a bit more gung-ho about things, the male is more reserved and calculating... You can almost see his little thought bubble:
...ooO Is it worth getting UP for? The other two can take care of it! Zzzz...Ooo...
May 4, 1998
This is the 'red' female, Dylan, snoozing at the front door. Pups are now spending
their days outside and coming in for the night. They are eating soaked kibble and nursing
their mother. It's been raining a bit, so they are learning about mud and stuff that falls
from the sky. See more pictures from this week.
Pups chowing down, May 20, 1998 - Observed by Silky Rooster, who sometimes shoves or pecks at them (teach respect for chickens!) so that he can have some pup chow. Aslan is watching the babies eat, and after pups and rooster are done, he can clean-up.
June 3, 1998
It's been a fast month watching these pups grow and develop their personalities. It's getting hard to catch them at perfect KODAK (tm) moments since I'm usually at the wrong angle or the pup comes up to stick his/her nose into the camera. But here they are, some digital shots taken over the last few weeks. At right is Dylan, the red female.
June 8, 1998 - Not Puppies, but Chickens! A couple hens went broody and sat a huge clutch of eggs over the past month. The hatching resulted in about 20 live peepers to date. Here are some pics of the new mothers and the chicks. The hens are very protective and chase the pups away from their brood.
June 12, 1998 - A few new pictures of the pups. Dylan got some t-shirts in the mail with the scent of her new family on them. She, of all the pups, took an immediate liking to the shirts!
At Right: That's Semavi Dylan, quietly resting on the front porch.
Pups are 7 months as of Thanksgiving 1998. To see some recent pictures, check out the following page.
Not a great bunch of pictures, but shows Kabul, Zor and Vakur playing together.

Sunny with Zara.
Two pics of Windy Spring's Zara. A classic case of the pics don't do him justice! It was pouring rain when we did the breeding so we didn't get a chance to take good pictures. We're standing on a porch and Zara is leaning against Sunny (it's that togetherness thing! *grin*) and here's a closeup of the same pic. I didn't edit anything, so he's got the flashbulb eyes... my image editor can edit red-eye, but not green?! Zara is OFA Good and is a IABKCA Champion. He stays in a small field with Sunny's La Mancha goats.
We got a chance to be a little silly and he was a very sweet fella despite the
off-and-on driving rain and the breeding shenanigans. NOTE: The pictures with the
borders can be enlarged by clicking on them.
