Jazzy is a super mom!  Photos of pups at birth and day 2
Jazzy learned the ropes from her mom Belle.
Really, there are seven pups but never all in the same place at one time.  This is a busy litter!
Colors for now are:  Black, Red, Yellow boys (but Yellow keeps taking his clothes off) and Pink, Denim Blue, Mint Green and Lilac (Purps) girls. Colors come day two when the pups are "tagged".
Female pup pink snuggles with mom, with green girl waiting for her turn.

Photos of each pup in the litter.  Day 5: all pups are over one lb.
Mr. Black has a dilute red-tawny coat, he has some white on him and may look like great aunt and uncle Claire and Franky as an adult. Big boy, big eater and very social.
Red male is dark coated. His red collar is inside out so that the soft side is against his neck. One handsome dude!
This is Mr. Stripey - he should be wearing a yellow collar but likes to run naked. Already is quite the character.
Denim blue female also has a dark dilute coat color and she should keep some darker masking.
This is minty green and she is pretty AND feisty!
Lilac collared girl, fondly referred to as Purps (Perps).  Every litter should have one!
Pretty in Pink.  Always!
Our Chinooks are our constant companions - creative and comical, easy keepers, and easy to love.

Mr. Stripey
Denim-Blue Girl is a dark red masked dilute with a pretty, feminine expression.
Lilac Girl is the largest girl and as big as the males.
Mint Green Girl should keep her black masking.
Pink Girl has the reddest coat of all and distinctive white rear toes.
 Day 27 - Outdoor photos
Lots going on!  Pups have started on goat milk, baby food,  meat broth, yogurt, yum!
Field trips from whelping room to the kitchen and on to the great outdoors.  Tails are up and wagging, Chinook features coming out!
 Life is Good!
 Puppy Update  - Beginning of Week 4 (28-30 days)
Each day the pups are learning new things.  Their diet is evolving, their sense of smell improving, their ability to follow is getting better.  Coordination and play are developing and new people visit and play with the pups each day.  Their meals are a combination of goat milk, oatmeal, bone broth, baby food veggies, yogurt/cottage cheese, ground raw chicken, hard boiled egg.  The pups have played with rib bones and have graduated to a water bowl (not as tasty as milk!).

Hand feeding is an important puppy skill and a first step for building food motivation for  training. The pups have started being hand fed with tiny bits of kibble.   In two days the litter has learned to play the "find it" game and the pups can smell out and track down the kibble pieces.   We use the find-it game with the older dogs as a way to keep them busy and as training for nose work. The litter responds well to the whistle and come as a group when they hear this sound.  They are outside a few times a day and run, play, fall down and wrestle. And snooze.  The slight incline in the yard is sometimes a challenge to negotiate resulting is some comical rolling action!

 Puppy Update  - Beginning of Week 5 (35 - 38 days)
Pups are spending much of their day outside now.  Our adult females have stepped up and help care for the pups.  Grandma Belle gives Jazzy a break and tends to the litter while Great Aunt Claire keeps puppy watch during the day, lying under shady schrubs close to the puppy pen.  The males will lie close to the puppy fence but if the pups approach them, Jazzy and Belle make a point to get between the males and the pups just so they all know who the bosses are.  
 Bone Appetite!
