Nov. 19, 2019: Happy six week old birthdays to Bonnie’s puppies

November 19, 2019:  Checkups went well today.  They were much more vocal than Ava’s puppies.  The weights are as follows:

Millie:                                               3 lbs. 12 oz.

Merrybelle:                                     3 lbs. 7.5 oz.

Male, blue-green collar:             2 lbs. 13 oz.

Male, brown collar:                      3 lbs. 8.5 oz.

I am keeping Merrybelle.  Her registered name will be Herron’s Stalwart Merrybelle’s Mystical Muse.  I am not sure if I can use Stalwart or not, and it may be too long for registration.  As a former English teacher, I do love alliteration.

Hamish, Piper and Boswell have their second round of shots scheduled on December 5, 2019.

Winter grooming for my adult Scotties begins December 1, 2019.  I usually take two at a time every other day.  I will be adjusting these dates according to puppy pickup days.

Nov. 15, 2019: Ava’s puppies six week checkups

November 15, 2019:  The puppies’ exams went well.  Both males have both testicles. I mentioned that they would not be used for breeding.  I learned if a puppy only has one that it causes complications with neutering.  After the Panacur treatment, the puppies did have dead round worms, but none showed up in their fecal exam. Teeth and heart are good, and no umbilical hernias. Their pictures are as follows:

Nov. 12, 2019: Exciting News!

November 12, 2019:  Robert the Bruce and Roxie were bred today!  I will put them together several times this week.  It has been a little tricky with rain and all inside.  It is fortunate that I have 21 end table crates which are stacked two and three on top of each other.  I rotate the Scotties all day.  Then tomorrow, they will go out when it is at least above freezing.  Scotties can take the cold better than the heat.

Nov. 11, 2019 Food I use

November 11, 2019:  Happy Veteran’s Day to all our military.  My son is in the army stationed in Texas.  He has done three tours in Iraq.  He will retire with twenty years in 2022.  I am so proud of him.  He is a first sergeant (E-8).

I am including the name of the dog food I use.  Puppy parents can choose whatever brand they would like.  I am using Purina Pro Plan All Stages (puppy to adult) Lamb and Rice Small Bites.

Bonnie’s five week pictures will be published tomorrow.
