The Puppies Turn One!

I absolutely can’t believe it’s been a year since our sweet puppies arrived! I’m happy to report that all of the puppies are doing amazingly well – they’re (mostly) well behaved, sweet little dogs! I am beyond happy with the homes they went to – we have a Facebook messenger chain going that everyone shares their latest updates on. It’s so cool to watch them grow and see all of their little personalities! There are definitely some Jenny traits in that run across all of the pups (the ability to jump insanely high, a mischievous streak, and the need to ALWAYS be with their people).

First up (I’m doing this by birth order, by the way), we have little Tritip. I think he’s actually the runt, coming in at 49.5 pounds! He gave us a bit of a scare the last few weeks with some sort of digestive issue, but is back to his normal, rambunctious self! He loves to play with Brady and Jenny as well as go on outings!

Next is Ike, the biggest of the bunch. A couple months ago, he was already pushing 70 pounds! He is a big softie who loves to snuggle – he hangs out with mom and dad on the sofa, as well as “big” sister Roxie!

Next is Ryder. He loves playing with his kids and is terrified of tin foil. He still has those absolutely beautiful light eyes! He loves to snuggle too – he has to be wherever his people are!

Next is Blitz. He went home with my sister-in-law and we’ve had the chance to reunite him and Tippy on several occasions. Blitz is actually the top of his canine good citizen class!

Next is Zeva, the lone girl. As with all of the pups, Zeva is also a snuggle bug. She will fiercely defend the family from the dreaded vacuum cleaner.

Next is Toby. He absolutely loves his two little boys and hanging out with his family!

Last, but not least, we have Harrie! He’s a blanket sucker (doesn’t eat them, just sucks on the corners) and likes to go where he shouldn’t (ie over gates, on tables, etc). Seems to be a common (mischievous) trait that I’m pretty sure they get from Jenny!

The Puppies Play Outside

The puppies tub was desperately in need of a good hosing out, so I decided to let the puppies have their first time out in the yard while I cleaned their pool. They had an absolute blast and were so super curious!

Here’s one of my favorite pictures of the day – little Achilles on the move:

Of course, I had to take lots of pictures of Tritip too:

And the whole group of them exploring:

Meet The Puppies – Rebel

Last, but certainly not least, was our bonus puppy. We were told by the vet that there were six, maybe seven puppies. After Toby, there was almost an hour before little Rebel was born. We were beginning to think that six would be it when this adorable little guy made his entrance at 1:15pm! He’ll be going home to Tim, Nicki, and Skyler as well – and get to spend his life with big brother Blitz! His name was pretty special too – Sky was just in a dance recital and got a little rebellious with a move she wasn’t supposed to do… the name was born!

Here’s Rebel on his birthday:

Meet The Puppies – Toby

Our sixth born is named Toby. He was born at 12:25pm and will be going home with my friend from high school, Sharon. She, her hubby, and her two boys are so excited! It was amazing to reconnect in person after all these years (we’ve stayed in touch via Facebook). They came out to the ranch, met Toby and fell in love!

Meet The Puppies – Zeva

Just when I thought we were going to have all boys, out came our one and only girl! Meet miss Zeva, born at 11:41am. She’ll be going home with our good friends Jim and Ashley! She is quite the little snuggle bug but will not hesitate to elbow her brothers out of the way to get some food!

Here she is on her birthday:

Meet The Puppies – Name TBD

Ok, so not everyone has a name right away. And that’s cool too! This sweet little boy was born third at 11:17am and will be going home to my sister and her family. He is super mellow, but always in the thick of things! He has stunning blue eyes, for right now at least! I’m hoping he keeps them – they go really well with his chocolate color!
