Norma (Koh-I-Noor) now called Frig left for Zealand. Kaare came early noon cause of a bad weather forecast which promised snow in the area they live. Frig now lives in the southern part of Zealand together with her big sister Banda (Flatcoated retriver).

I am online again after the computer collapse. Meanwhile much has happend 2 puppies have left home for new families. We've had visits from puppies families both brand new and slightly older, and then I started to get photos of the puppies new home. Click photos for full size.
Due to computer break down there are no new updates at the moment. But very soon I will be back with updates and new pictures of the puppies.
Another busy week has passed, the puppies are now beginning to leave home. My printer is broken. It gives extra busy. Besides these things there have been many visitors. The pups have had ample opportunity to greet many different people and a single new dog.
A busy week is completed, it began Monday with "baptism", where the puppies was chipped. Wednesday we went to the town Odder for hearing tests, health check and vaccination. It was also the puppies first road trip since we normaly do not have a car. The week ended with at Saturday we were visited by the puppies father Joschi and his family, they came from Dusseldorf, Germany, to see the children, and everybody think they were very beautiful.
The 6 week passes, the puppies are now quite good to go outside and attend during the daytime. They are also becoming very good at gardening, my garden looks more and more used in addition. It is giant fun to have visits from children, especially if they have shoe laces. The puppies are now some highly social creatures who are glad for all who come. They are what I call "take-me-up puppies."
Another week has passed, the puppies are getting better and better at running. The entire four different persons (Martin, Jette, Jens and Karen) who have helped me to take pictures of the puppies, I must see to get made a presentation of them. Now I have actually just the luxury problem that it can be hard to pick one image. Unfortunately we had little rain during the week, so now have puppies also tried to be wet, oh, how many towels to use when entering.
Now the puppies are 5 weeks and out in the garden every day, how long depends on the weather, but they are closed off to pee outside, yet they are not absolutely sure of this, but it is moving forward. They also moved into space with access to a garden where there is more room to play inside. Altogether there are many new things to explore and assess.
We had a visit from Grethe and Martin, who had to find their new family member. Martin helped to take pictures of the puppies individually, he also took other pictures, here are a few.
The puppies are almost 4 weeks. They have been much better to eat puppyfood. Grandma Goodie love being a nanny (yet) they've soon many teeth. First deworming is now over, it is always a festive thing, but they were now good to eat it without any fuss. Puppies care about each other, other dogs and people now, they want out and see the world outside of the box, it should also soon. It's an exciting time, we are in session now.
Now the puppies then been three weeks. The puppies will now have their own food and they eat any of it. They are quite good to attend to the newspapers, but of course it also slips. They have started to be interested in each other. But they are still too small to reach the milk bar when the mother stands up, even if they try to use her legs as hjælpeværktøj.
Now I think the time has come when the small are going to eat puppy food, they think for mother's food tastes really good, and although she snaps angrily from them. and try to push them away, one can see the images shows that it has no great effect. .
Another week has passed. All puppies have now opened their eyes. They started walking, two steps with one leg in each corner, and then rolls puppy, no it's not easy to keep balance. The nails were cut.
The first week has passed. It goes just as fast puppies grow and thrive, and the spots are beginning to be visible, it's almost like they become clearer and clearer by the hour. Idea doing motherhood in fine style, unbelievable I am surprised every time a new bitch becomes a mother for the first time. She greets visitors with a big smile (see my beautiful children). Fits her children completely relaxed. She becomes more and more interested in what else happens in the house, but still fit the children in the best way. Last night I fell asleep on the couch, and who slept with me (Idea). The houses other dogs have also welcomed the new small, Zabel and (now) great-grandmother Dotter, looking just a little on them and then it it while Grandma Goodie think they are quite wonderful.
Then I got caught out! Sunday evening I went to bed, all so normal looking, Idea and Zabel slept on the couch as usual, and I figured that a birth was several days away, so nothing was made clear yet. At 2:30 I woke up when Idea howl loud, I thought "what the heck is wrong" and went in to see what was wrong. There was a restless and much gasping dog who was waited for me and GISP! puppie box must be in now instantly, I thought! It was a little easier said than done, I should first rearrange things so it could be there, and so would of course also clean a little where the box schould be should be, and the box indeed also had to be washed a little.
Within a short time, like all pure chaos, with moving furniture, rolled carpets, vacuum cleaner, bucket, etc. In the middle of it all stood a big green dog bed, in which Idea got her first-born at. 03:10, and where she managed to get three more poppoes before I got everything in place. I please, sharing time between being a birth helper, a removal and cleaning woman, but eventually it was all okay, and I could move mother and children into the box, and thrown blankets from the dog bed into the washing machine. Then we come so far - NICE!
The time approx. 9 Vibeke came, she had to fetch Benno and had rolls with, we became a quick cup of coffee and a fresh roll. After she had left Idea got a puppy, it was unfortunately died at birth, it was a little bitch.
After another one hour, I called the vet, he came and checked the whole family, Idea got lime, and he said it was a nice litter and mother had no more puppies inside. I was a little tired after the game, it is first now that I tell about the family increases, mother and children just thrive.
It is now the 15th of June, and here is new pictures, of a sweet pregnant dal-girl.
Pictures of Idea's stomach the 8.juni, it has begun to fill up a little! It's really exciting what is hiding in there.
