F-Litter Pups

Jetta F-Litter

It has been a  memorable experience watching the F-Litter pups grow. It is always interesting to see how their personalities and appearances develop. This litter was a good one. From the whelping until the pups headed to their new homes went very well. Jetta did an excellent job as a first time mom. The last pup (Finn) will be picked up today. We are keeping the pink collared female (Sage).

Liver Drags F-Litter

The F-Litter pups are enjoying the taste of a good deer liver. They are 6.5 weeks old. I am still teasing them with the livers. I also extend the liver a short ways away from them and hide it. I want to see the pups use their noses to find it. At this age that is what they do. They are not looking with their eyes to find it. That is what we are are after. So far I am happy with all of their progress.

F-Litter pups

The F-Litter pups turned 6 weeks old yesterday. They all had their initial vaccinations and wellness checks. All pups are healthy and doing great. They all love to be outside. They all have responded good to deer liver teasing and drags. I will continue working with them until they leave for their new homes. Here are some pictures I took outside today.

F-Litter Pups At 5 Weeks Old

The F-Litter pups turned 5 weeks old yesterday. They continue to get more active and love being outside. I introduced them to a deer liver drag and they loved that. I have given the pups their official names.

F-Litter Pups Wore Out

The F-Litter pups will be 5 weeks old tomorrow. They are getting very active as their personalities develop. Five of them posed for a rare photo outside today, after getting wore out. We have decided on their names. I will post those names with their individual pictures on my next post.

Pups Enjoying The Outdoors

The F-Litter is growing fast. We continue to get them outside. This upcoming week we will introduce deer livers to them. Today we got an unexpected thunderstorm, so they will be inside most of the day. Here are a few random pictures I recently took. If you’ve ever tried taking pictures of young pups you know what a challenge that can be!
