Tink is now Riley has a New Home!

On 12 October, Levi joined the NanaDogs Family when his sister Caitlin gave him Tink as a birthday present. Tink’s new name is Riley and we’re excited for her new home in Illinois … including two sister-dogs! THANK YOU Levi (and Caitlin, too!). Tink Levi Caitlin IMG_1942 (1) Tink Levi Caitlin IMG_1945

Puppies at Christmas Time

I’ve been asked about the size Amber’s puppies will be at Christmastime. This “family” picture was taken a week or two before Christmas last year. Besides Bill and me, you can see Abbi (who was 5 years old then), Aris (who was 22 months), and Amber and Stori Anne (who were four months – they were born three days apart … yes, they’re from different litters – smile).  Amber and Aris’ puppies will be right at four months at Christmas, so you can get an idea of how big they may be.

Which makes me think it’s a great time to get a new puppy now … perfect for Christmas (or Hanukkah) pictures – maybe even for your cards!  2013 Christmas 1487370_10152274053613814_1797371069_n

Puppies at Play

Today the puppies are six weeks old and we decided to see what would happen if we open their playpen to give them free-range of the office and access to the crate so they can start the journey into crate training. What ensued was about thirty minutes of playing before they crashed. 2014-10-01 11.49.12 2014-10-01 11.49.18 2014-10-01 11.49.24 2014-10-01 11.49.29 2014-10-01 11.49.34 2014-10-01 11.49.46 2014-10-01 11.49.51 2014-10-01 11.50.02 2014-10-01 11.50.09 2014-10-01 11.50.16 2014-10-01 11.50.25 2014-10-01 11.50.29 2014-10-01 11.51.32 2014-10-01 11.51.48 2014-10-01 11.51.53 2014-10-01 11.51.57

Bath Day!

What do you do when you’ve a massive mess of puppies on your hands???? BATHS!!!!!!!!

We took these pictures yesterday. As you can see, it was a beautiful Indian Summer October day in Missouri – 82 degrees – and perfect for bathing.  Also perfect for bathing puppies between 5 and 7 pounds? Ice chests: one with puppy bath and the other with nice, clear water for rinsing. They didn’t mind the baths too much … and they LOV20140929_160703 20140929_160716 20140929_165705 20140929_165710 20140929_165717 20140929_165737 20140929_165740 20140929_165748 20140929_165756 20140929_165814 20140929_165855 20140929_165911 20140929_175141 20140929_175206 20140929_175232 20140929_175354ED the hour of cuddle time afterward.
