This time around we have chosen to implement a new tradition here at the Thompson MVGD home. The Guardian family of Indy was able to come and observer delivery of the little ones. While they were here we decided that as the guardian owner they would name the puppies. Because our Amazing guardian family (The Plews) are Hawaiian we decided everyone would have Hawaiian names. So without further ado here is our little piece of Hawaiian Paradise,

Valentines day was especially sweet with these cute babies this year! These five puppies have been so sweet and easy! They hardly make a sound and they love to be held and snuggled. They even snuggle up to Jackson who tends to be a bit of a bumpy, wiggly snuggler. (He is five after all...) read more here...
This litter has been an absalute joy to have here at the house. Some of them have started to show some of their personality traits but for the most part thay are all very similar and easygoing.
Lots of 1st this week
Today puppies experience a lot of first to help them get ready for a life time of grooming. They Had their first bath, first experience with the blow dryer, first trim around the eyes and first time with an electric clipper to trim up their behind. We also did a photo shoot and had their nails trimmed for the third time. Tomorrow they will start on solids.
They have all been doing fairly well at using the litter box for the bathroom. I would say they use it about 70% of the time. We gave them some time out of their whelping box today.
They enjoyed a little extra room to romp around a bit, although they mostly just slept. They are not super active yet but they are starting to tussle just a little. I should start to see a little of their personality come out by the end of next week and more so by the middle/end of the week after that just before puppy pick out day.
