Bisou (Bee-zoo) and Maverick have great genetics to have beautiful babies! All of these puppies will be red and some will have white abstract markings. Both parents have social, outgoing personalities that we love to see in all of our goldendoodles. This is Bisou's last litter. Her past puppies are some of our favorites and these will be no exception.

The babies all had a HUGE growth spurt last week. There are a couple of factors here--first it was actually a week plus 1 day between the last weigh-in. But otherwise they have just been growing like crazy! They have been eating like they are totally starving all week long! While they mostly have all of their teeth about half of them don't quite have their molars. They eat much better if I get the food a little wet before I give it to them. I've been doing one meal of just regular hard crunch and the other two I cover the food with super hot water for about 10 minutes before I give it to them. I think that has helped with their growth. The other contributing factor is that one of our other moms--Ember--has been nursing these puppies. She had her puppies die in an emergency c-section and her maternal instincts drove her to find puppies to care for. Bisou has weaned the puppies and does't mind if Ember is in with them so we've let Ember go ahead and do her thing. It seems to be helping her and she is gradually spending less and less time with them which is good since they all go home by tomorrow! The babies are all ready to start individual training and to meet their families!

The babies are five weeks old today! This week we had our "hallelujah" morning. This is my favorite morning with every litter--it's the morning when I go in to check on puppies and find that ALL of the babies used the dog door to go potty! YAY! No more cleaning up poop in the house!
The babies are all sleeping in crates at night and for naps as they desire. We don't crate them individually yet and we don't close the door to the crate. We just make it available to them. We switched over to 'big kid' collars today (these are special safety collars that have a quick release in case a collar gets caught on something). The puppies still spend time playing in the big backyard on the grass most days but their outdoor puppy space is a little smaller and accessible from their puppy pen. We will start teaching them to take a treat from our hands and we will introduce the clicker this week.
I will be calling each of you to set up a FaceTime appointment to talk face to face and see the puppies at the end of next week.

Four weeks. This has been a big week! The babies have moved over to the 'big kid' area. They are learning to sleep in crates and they are starting to follow Bisou out the dog door. Everyone is doing great using the litter box area to go potty. They just started eating puppy food mush and they are tolerating everything very well. Bisou is a great mama--super attentive and starting to wean the babies. Over the next few weeks she will continue to teach her babies all the important 'dog manners' skills that only moms can teach.

The babies are three weeks old today! They have had their eyes open for about a week and everyone is up and walking. They are just starting to interact with each other as they develop their eyesight and hearing more and more each day. They are just starting to use the bathroom on their own so we will start litter box training this week. Once the puppies are a little bigger they will move over to the doggie door area where mom will start teaching them to go outside to go potty but for now we will provide distinct areas for sleep/play and potty. Dogs instinctively keep their areas clean if they are given the opportunity to do so.
They had their first trip outside in the beautiful Fall weather yesterday. We will keep outings short--just a few minutes at first so as to not over-stress their little nervous systems and their watchful mama. She still likes them to be in a small area where she can care for them easily. We hold and interact with each puppy every day. There is nothing more fun that a puppy to snuggle during school or homework!
Our little tiny boy (light blue collar) is the true runt of the litter. We don't often have a true runt (less than half the size of the littermates) but we always get attached to the little ones when we do. This little guy is growing slowly but steadily and we will continue to keep a close eye on him to make sure he has access to plenty of food as his siblings get bigger and stronger.
