The puppies are growing and changing on a daily basis. They play with their feet and they love to bat and paw at each other. They love to play with Hannah , Gabby and Quincy! Gabby mothers them as much as Hope does, Hannah will play and even try to clean up after them and Quincy well he's the Nanny!

They where out and about the living room every where! They love to get out and explore!
3/07/2004 & 3/08/2004
All tuckered out!
Hope is doing well and feeling much better!!! She leaves them for a bit and then is right back with them! She is not at all selfish with the puppies.
The puppies all have full sets of teeth top and bottom so they are starting to explore with their teeth. The walk very well, are very alert and seem to be ahead of the game for their age, they will be 3 weeks old 3/09/2004
The amount they grow just over night is amazing!! I have to go get milk replacer, hamburger and some small squeak toys for them to play with.
I mix the milk replacer along with a wonderful vitamin, 1/4 cup of hamburger ,a 1/4 cup of cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of canned puppy food into crushed dry puppy food. They insist on the gruel 4 times a day, they will howl until I get it ready and feed them. So we have tried to set a feeding schedule of
2:00 am they are very satisfied with this and hopefully we can cut the 2:00am feeding back to an earlier hour soon!
The following are pictures taken 3/08/2004

Hope you enjoyed the Update and I will update as I can I was down this weekend with my back so I had to do as little as possible which was caring for the puppies. They are spoiled and love to be held, if they see you they will whine at times to be picked up and loved on!
Ohhhh yes the ultimate question, when do their ears get long? They all have well set ears and with bassets their ears seem to grow daily, by 6 weeks they will have a good set of ears and 8 thru 10 weeks they get much longer!

The puppies officially out grew their puppy play pen so Hubby spent a vacation day building them a new home from an idea I came up with! The hardest part was figuring out what to do for the flooring as they are in our living room and of course we want to protect our carpet!

I promise that I will get individual pictures and awake pictures of each one of them!! Hubby is working his full-time job and two part time jobs since I am unable to work because of my injury. I have a few good days and several bad ones with pain but I see the specialist again on 3/22/04! I need to get him home long enough to help me and my camera needs new batteries!!!
We were going to keep one of the babies since we lost our Lindsey but........................ I am having a hard time deciding who!!!! When I picked Hope out of her litter and Gabby out of her Litter and Quincy out of his litter I knew they were who I wanted but in this litter...... well of course we like the lemon & white female ( Hubby's favorite along with Skunkie)
I have taken a strong liking to the a lot of white female from the beginning she has a strong built body and conformation, a nice head and ears( she reminds me a bit of Lindsey) but now I am taking a liking to the blue collar female she has a lovely face and nice ears developing maybe a tad bit longer legs than I like! The lemon & white female I love her too ( although we have a lemon & white Quincy)! Now if I wanted to keep a male, well....... the red collar boy has nice conformation, head and ears, Skunkie well he has been awesome from day one( he is marked identical almost to Lindsey except he is black and she was red) and then the red & white male is great ( but I think he is promised and has been for a year) Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh if only we could keep them all !!! They are all wonderful the yellow collar male is lovey dovey he just has longer legs than I prefer!
Dot ( the green collar female) is very lovey dovey, she has great head and ears coming however she is a tab bit longer legged than I prefer!
What a wonderful litter of puppies if I must say so my self !!! ( I know I am bias sorry) well that does it for this update hope you enjoy!!!
There may be puppies available out of this litter, we are located in Mansfield Ohio which is about an hour from either Columbus, Cleveland or Akron!! If you are interested contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further information!
