The Puppies at Six Weeks Old

July 18, 2008

The puppies were wormed again today. They will go in for their vaccinations on the 25th. Weaning was quite easy on them and on Vreni. Vreni’s milk had slowed down enough in the days before that when the complete weaning happened, she didn’t get uncomfortable or have pain. She has started to shed her coat as always happens with the dam around weaning time.

Personality tests were done yesterday. Here is a brief rundown on what the numbers mean:

1) dominant, can be aggressive

2) dominant

3) well rounded, more active

4) well rounded, laid back

5) submissive

6) independent

Daisy Collar Female is looking forward to joining the Wilkins family in a few weeks! She is one little sweetie that is going to give them much joy over the years.

Her personality test showed her mostly in the 3s with a couple 4s.

Her weight this morning was 8.5 pounds.

Congratulations to the Monroe family for choosing their boy! Red Collar Male is the “little Robey” of this litter. His personality is like his father’s was as a puppy down to a T! And his face resembles his dad’s in a striking manner.

Personality test for him showed him in the 3s and 4s. With a little more on the 4s………which means he is more on the laid back side.

His weight this morning was 9.75 pounds

Green Collar Male is quite the fearless one.

Personality test for him showed him 3s all the way down the sheet.

His weight this morning was 11 pounds.

Blue Collar Male.

His personality test showed him mostly threes with a couple 2s.

His weight this morning was 11 pounds.

Orange Collar Male.

His personality test showed him 4s almost all the way down the sheet, just one 5.

His weight this morning was 9.5 pounds.
