Ginger and Beethovan
Medium multi-generational Goldendoodles
Six puppies born May 23
Ready to go home Saturday, July 13
This litter Belongs to Kim.
Ginger is calm quiet and so easy to have in our home! She gets along well with other dogs and kids and she loves to swim. She doesn't bark and she is reliable off leash. We especially love her stunning big, thick, boxy structure. She has completed her genetic and physical health testing.
Beethovan is part of a great breeding program in Ohio. He has completed genetic and physical health testing. He has a lovely non-hyper personality. Both of his parents are about 20 pounds so we are confident that his size will help to downsize Ginger's puppies without sacrificing her beautiful boxy structure and personality.
Ginger's reservation list:
1. Nicole Crenshaw--Chip--Fairbanks Alaska
2. Alfred and Lilya Aday--Fudge--Seattle, Washington
3. Jennifer Nishijima--Hershey--Salt Lake City
4. Miranda Trimpey--Mocha--Wisconsin

The puppies are all using the dog door to go potty! This is always a nice change for us when they start taking themselves out to the bathroom--so much less cleanup work! They all have their little puppy teeth and are doing great eating solid food. They still nurse a couple of times a day but Ginger is gradually weaning them. They are so fun to watch as they play and learn to use their sharp little teeth. They are learning to sit to 'be polite' and they will become more proficient in their interactions with each other as they take fewer naps during the day. From Largest to smallest: Mocha, Chip, Mousse, Fudge, Hershey, Coco

The puppies are all walking and playing and teething! They just started going outside to play each day and today they tried some soft/watery puppy food. They still prefer nursing but they will switch over to solid foods within the next week and a half or so. They are doing well with potty training and almost always use the litter tray in their box. They are just about ready to move to the bigger pen where they will start using a dog door to go potty outside.

Ginger's babies are three weeks old! This week they have become more and more stable on their little legs and they aren't gaining weight nearly as fast as they have been. They have started to interact with each other and they stay awake for longer periods of time every day. Ginger no longer sleeps with the babies. They have started using a potty area in their pen and are getting there about 70% of the time. They will get better about using the potty area as they get more stable on their feet and then they will move to the bigger pen where they can start using the dog door to go potty outside. Next week they will start trying a little bit of water and goats milk and next week they will start weaning. We are continuing to interact with every puppy every day as we follow our early socialization program. *It's still too early to tell who will have blue eyes for sure but it looks like our two merle puppies and our light parti boy (Mocha, Fudge and Chip) will have lovely, light blue eyes.*
These babies are doing great! This week they started to open their eyes--their eyes are still cloudy and they won't be able to see well until they get to be three to four weeks old. Their hearing is just starting to develop as well. They spend their time eating and sleeping and occasionally creeping around their little box. Ginger still sleeps in the box with them and she keeps busy keeping them warm and clean and fed. They will start to toddle around this week and their eyesight and hearing will improve every day. We hold and handle every puppy every day to help develop resilient neurological systems and to start the socialization process.
