The Puppies of Spring, 2018 (3)

Update  with pics from April 7–Well, it wasn’t warm but it was clear and sunny. So…..we did try a short time outside. Now keep in mind that these few photos took over 2.5 hours to get. First getting them out, then cleaning the inside play spaces, then photos and getting them all back in the warm again. All the toys were so badly trashed that they are not in the photos because they were soaking to be cleaned! Still, I think that they enjoyed the brisk air for their first time EVER outside!

BRUNO x VERITY

Getting up to seven weeks old now!

EURO x MERCI

Six weeks old…..loving the outside play so much that they are all tuckered out!

Everybody is getting their first vaccinations and have finished a preventative worming cycle. In just a few more days, April 12 or 13th, we will be doing the PAT, physical evaluations, and photo shots.

The Puppies of Spring, 2018

The long awaited report of puppies at Seneca Airedales is finally here!

BRUNO x VERITY

First, expected on Valentine’s Day, but born just one day later on February 15th, we introduce the puppies from Bruno and Verity. Learn more about the parents by clicking on their names…..

The sire of this litter, Seneca Handsome King (OFA AT-5684 Good), is himself sired by a German import with obedience/performance titles and we are very excited about him! His mother is our own Fancy and this is the first time Bruno has been the father of a litter.  You can read more about Fancy and find a video of Bruno as a year old puppy.

Verity preparing the layette.

We prepared a safe secure place well in advance. Verity had a bath and a trim to get ready too.

Seneca Ariana Verity (OFA Excellent) spent her Valentine’s Day preparing a nest for her puppies. We enjoyed providing her with plenty of newspapers for shredding.

Verity welcomes the first puppy

Then, at 5 am on February 15th, we decided to have puppies! She’s so happy to see the first little guy–look closely, he’s there….

5:15 am Male        BLUE          11.1 oz

8:11 am Female   PINK            12.5 oz

10:55 am Female SEAFOAM  11.7 oz

12:05 pm Male     RED               7.5 oz

Poor little Red didn’t survive long even with close supervision. I still grieve for him and what might have been. I set a schedule of checking them all day which makes me so glad that I can work from home. During the night, I was checking them at 12 Midnight, 2 am, 4 am, and 7 am. Sleep was a bit of a luxury that I could go short on for their sake.

Seneca Ariana Merci….waiting….

Next, waiting for the big day….then born with just a little excitement as we ran to the well known Animal Clinic Northview, where we had a C-section performed. We introduce the puppies from Euro and Merci. Learn more about the parents by clicking on their names or links…..

The sire of this litter, UCD, URO1 Dollar von Erikson PCD, CD, TD, VCD1, NJP, NAP, NFP, JH, SHF, JHR, BH, AD, IPO2, RATO, RL2 , is a German import with obedience/performance titles and OFA AT-5512 Good. He and his owner/trainer Linda Sorak of IL, are perhaps just a bit in the way of overachievers! More training titles are on the way since you just can’t keep a good dog on the couch!

 

If you’d like to do more research, here are some videos of Euro: First in his IPO and IPO Revieren practice, then in AKC Obedience Novice class.

Arriving on the due date, February 20, the puppies follow, in no particular order due to the C-section:
