Very affectionate, craves attention and to be with you. Likes to snuggle on your chest and give lots of tender kisses on your chin. Playful with litter mates, but also very interested in humans and will stop playing when you come into the room because he'd rather be with you.  Eager to explore his surroundings and very interested in the bird wing.

Personality Observations:

Very outgoing and friendly, seeks affection, also very aggressive in play with littermates. Could possibly be alpha-type, but only time will tell. Seems to be a well-adjusted pup, not much bothers him and doesn't seem to be whiney. Quickly adjusts to new surroundings. Very interested in the wing and was eager to play with it.

Gentle/mild natured, soft/sweet personality. He sits back and watches things from a distance, but will join in if you encourage him. He wants your affection and attention but begs for it with his eyes. Not overly obnoxious and loves to play with Bristol and had fun beckoning for her to return his playful advances. Good amount of interest in the wing. Affectionate and soft natured. Seeks your attention and readily stays by your side. Cautious when exploring surroundings, but warms up after a little bit of time. Confidence comes with familiarity. He prances when he plays by picking up his front feet higher than a normal walk. Shows good interest in the wing.

Developmental Progress:

< 1 week

Newborns are so tiny and delicate.  All EIGHT puppies are healthy and doing great! For a few hours after birth, the puppies noses are a bright pink as the oxygen from their first breaths circulates throughout their little bodies. At this stage all they do is eat and sleep and are never completely still. They tend to twitch, jerk and stretch even while sleeping. They also have instinctive reflexes to crawl, seek warmth and nurse. These puppies are especially strong and mobile.

Day 0 - 01/14/07 Dew claws were removed today.
Day 1 - 01/15/07

The umbilical cords have shriveled up and are now falling off.  Duchess is such a wonderful mother, tending to them almost 24 hours without let-up. The only time she wants to leave them is to go outside three or four times a day for just a few minutes each time. She's feeding them so well that all the pups have gained almost one ounce or more already.

Day 3 - 01/17/07

The puppies are starting to get little freckles on their skin.  Eventually the freckled skin will grow colored hair which we call ticking.

Today marked Day #1 of our Super Dog program - read about it!

Day 5 - 01/19/07

The puppies are all very strong and healthy.  They are moving around the whelping box by scooting around on their bellies. They have lots of energy.

1 week

At this age the pups still don't have their eyes open yet, but that should happen during this week.  They are getting around a lot better now and are almost lifting themselves up off the floor at this point.  They will be walking instead of scooting very soon!

Day 7 - 01/21/07

Pups had their one week photos taken today.  They are posted below for your enjoyment. They have also gained a lot of weight over the past week, and usually gain at least one to two ounces or more each day.

Day 8 - 01/22/07 Took video of puppies nursing (view video clip)
Day 9 - 01/23/07

Pups had their first nail trims today.  Their little toenails were sharp and hooked on the end which if not trimmed would start catching in the carpeted floor of their whelping box.

Their eye lids are starting to separate which is the first sign that the pups will open their eyes very soon. The ear canals are also beginning to open. They are getting deeper, and eventually the pups will be able to hear without the sounds being muffled.

Day 12 - 01/26/07

The pups are growing so fast and the majority of them are over 2 pounds now and the rest are just barely under.

Colby, Caruso and Carly opened their eyes today!

Day 13 - 01/27/07

Cisco, Chloe and Copper opened their eyes today!
2 weeks

At this stage the puppies are all getting much stronger and are starting to actually carry their own weight on their little legs and walk around now. Very soon they will be running around!  Most of the pups have their eyes open now.

Day 14 - 01/28/07

First worming.

Coon and Calvin opened their eyes today!

Day 15 - 01/29/07

Today we have completed the last day of our Super Dog program.

Now that the puppies can see, they will start to focus in on where they want to go when they are up and walking.  Before, they seemed to scoot around aimlessly, but now they have a definite intent on which direction they want to go! Pretty soon I will have to put the half-door on the whelping box otherwise they will be crawling out!

Day 16 - 01/30/07

Took video of puppies with momma (view video clip)

Day 18 - 02/01/07

Nail trim

Puppies are starting to play with each other.

Day 19 - 02/02/07

Today we had to put the 1/2 door in the whelping box as the puppies were getting out! Now momma has to jump over it to get into the box to nurse and clean her pups.

Their ear canals are almost open now.

Day 20 - 02/03/07

The puppies teeth are erupting.

3 weeks

At this stage the puppies are up off the floor and are getting around very well. They are really starting to play with each other by chewing each other's ears, play bowing and wagging their tails. They have also definitely found their vocal cords and are barking and howling up a storm when they are hungry, pleading with momma to come feed them. Duchess is wanting to spend less and less time in the nursery now and seemingly wants to get back to her "normal" life, thus I will be starting the puppies on cereal to help supplement her nursing. It may be partially because the puppies teeth are coming in and it is more painful to nurse, but the puppies are still steadily gaining weight.

Day 21 - 02/04/07

Second worming.

Day 23 - 02/06/07

Took video of puppies playing (view video clip)

Day 26 - 02/09/07

At this point, we can really start to see the dark freckles on the skin underlying the pups' white coats which will someday produce the dark hairs that we call "ticking" on an adult. Based on our observations, we have added predictions for each pup in their stats below as to how heavily they will be ticked as an adult.

Day 27 - 02/10/07

First introduction to 2nd stage weaning cereal.  (view video clip)

4 weeks

Puppies are really barking and growling now as they play. They are starting to get much rougher with each other during play.  Pretty soon we will be moving the puppies from their whelping box to our new facility and to a 9' x 4.5' puppy play pen.  We hope to get the live puppy cam set up for viewing in that area but will be determined by the distance from our wireless router and whether it can transmit that far. Keep your fingers crossed!

 

Puppy selection will begin in one week... Deposit holders, please be thinking about your pick and prioritizing your choices so that you will be ready to make your selection when the time comes.  

 

If you are coming to pick out your puppy in person, please call us to schedule your appointment. We will be posting puppy personality profiles very soon. Call us if you have specific questions. Thanks!

Day 28 - 02/11/07

Third worming.

Day 31 - 02/14/07

First introduction to solid food.  Today we added some solid canned food to their morning cereal and mixed it in really well so it was mushy.  The pups just lapped it up!  We are also now keeping a bowl of water in the box with them at all times.

Day 32 - 02/15/07

Today we moved the puppies to our new facility and their fabulous new play pen! They have about 40.5 square feet of room to romp and play. The area is lined with cedar chips which help to keep the puppies coats clean and free of excrement and the area smelling great.

 

Took video of puppies in their new playpen (view video clip)

Day 33 - 02/16/07

Puppies are eating solid canned food now without mixing it with water to turn it to mush.  They have finally found their water bowl and most pups are drinking it now. Momma is still nursing about 3 times per day.

5 weeks

The puppies are becoming more active and sleeping less and less each day. They are drinking water really well now and are fascinated by their automatic waterer. We added a platform for them to get up on so that they could reach the waterer and they spend a lot of time hanging out on and around it.

Day 35 - 02/18/07

Today was the first day that we added about 10% dry kibble to their canned rations. All pups are eating well and have big round pot bellies!

First Parvo vaccinations.

Day 36 - 02/19/07

Momma is nursing only once per day now. The puppies are being fed three meals per day with dry kibble mixed with canned food. Therefore with our three meals and the one nursing, they are fed four times per day.

Day 38 - 02/21/07

Puppies are being well socialized to the noises of a kitchen, namely running water, can openers and the food processor.  All pups seem to be oblivious to those noises and tolerate them well.  They are also getting regular contact with our adult dogs and simply have a ball playing with them, biting their legs and tugging on their tails.

Day 39 - 02/22/07

We presented the litter with a pheasant wing again today. They were all very interested in it and followed it readily.  Most sniffed it and others held their ears high in attention while staring at it.  Every pup in this litter is going to have great field potential!

Day 40 - 02/23/07

Today is the last day that momma will be nursing the pups.  They are eating 80% dry kibble mixed with about 20% canned food. Each day we have been decreasing the canned food until they are completely on dry kibble. This should take place over the next 2 to 3 days.

6 weeks

WOW!! These pups are growing like weeds and so strong and healthy! All pups are now completely on dry kibble and eating it well.  We have switched from Science Diet Puppy Small Bites to Puppy Original because the kibble size is larger and they are less likely to choke on it. Seven pups are going home this coming weekend already.  Time sure flies when you're having fun!

Day 42 - 02/25/06

Fourth worming.

 

Puppies were microchipped today for those who wanted them. We weighed all the pups and posted their weights in the stats below.

7 weeks

Puppies are ready to go to their new homes this weekend!  Boy will they be excited to finally do something different than spend time in that playpen area.  They are just busting at the seams to get out and explore new surroundings.

Day 48 - 03/03/07

7-way vaccination.

 

Cisco, Carly, Calvin, and Copper went home today.

Day 49 - 03/04/07

Caruso, Coon and Chloe went home today. Poor Colby is all by himself now, but we will be sure to bring him into our home for some playtime with the big dogs!

Now we wait to see when Duchess starts showing signs of pregnancy. The gestation period for dogs is 9 weeks (63 days) which equates to one week for every one month in humans.

 

12/07/06

28 days:  Today at exactly 4 weeks post breeding, we started feeding Duchess her "special" meals. Now she can't wait until dinner because she knows she's getting treated like royalty!

 

12/10/06

31 days: It has been about 4-1/2 weeks since Duchess was bred and her belly is definitely growing. They say about now is when you can actually feel the puppies when the momma's belly is palpated.  Today I tried this technique and was delighted to feel little "chicken egg" sized lumps. I am now 99.9% sure that Duchess is carrying pups. At this point, she is about half way through the gestation period.

Based on the breeding date, puppies are due on January 11th, 2007.

 

12/18/06

39 days:  Duchess' belly is expanding seemingly almost daily now. She's got a ravenous appetite and is rapidly losing her girly figure and is becoming much more plump around the middle. She no longer sits like a lady, she spreads her legs wide out to her sides due to her increasing size. If you quietly sit with your hand on her tummy for a while, you can sometimes feel the faint little flutter of a puppy moving around in there. We are very excited to meet those precious little ones in about 3-1/2 weeks!

 

12/19/06

40 days: Due to Duchess' ravenous appetite, we have started feeding her twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening. She eats a regular sized meal at each sitting and you can tell that after eating she is becoming quite uncomfortable.

Just for fun, I've decided to start trying to measure Duchess' weight and her waist size so that we can tell how much she is actually gaining and expanding with this litter. I measured starting at the navel, and going all the way around her belly. Then I put her on the weigh scale.

Waist: 26 1/4 inches
Weight: 55 pounds

We'll see where she is in a few days!

Just for comparison, Duchess weighed 60 pounds the day before she delivered eleven pups with her last litter. She's still got three weeks and two days (23 days) to go! Her normal, non pregnancy weight is between 45 and 47 pounds. Any guesses to what her final weight will be the day before she delivers her pups?? e-mail us with your guess!

 

12/22/06

43 days: Tonight I took a photo of Duchess while she was eating her evening meal so that you all can see how big her belly is getting.

Duchess' measurements today are:

Waist:   26 3/4 inches
Weight: 56 1/2 pounds

12/27/06

We are currently working on getting an internet camera set up so that all our future puppy parents (and anyone else who's interested), can watch their babies LIVE from any location in the country! This will be an exciting addition to the Hickory Hollow network, so please stay tuned!

 

12/28/06

49 days: Last night, I noticed Duchess' teats are starting to lactate.

Waist:    27 inches
Weight:  58 1/2 pounds

14 days to go, and counting...

 

01/01/07

53 days: Today we set up the nursery in preparation for babies! We prepared the whelping box, set up the infrared heat lamp and gathered the whelping kit and any supplies that will be needed including a fresh stack of hand towels!  
Down to 10 days and counting...

01/02/07

54 days: Today's measurements were:

Waist:    28.5 inches
Weight:  62 pounds

 

01/03/07

55 days: As of today we started taking Duchess' temperature twice daily to monitor her whelping status.  Her temperature has already fallen the 1 degree or so that it normally does the week before whelping will occur.  

Today her temp was right around 100 degrees.  
Normal temp for a dog is around 101.5 degrees.

What we are waiting for is for her temp to drop to 98.4 or lower and stay there. Once that happens she will whelp within 24 hours.  

8 days and counting...

 

01/04/07

56 days: Tonight was really cool!  If you place your hand on Duchess' belly now, you can really feel the puppies moving around in there, whereas just a couple days ago you couldn't feel much. One little guy was really feisty tonight and seemed to really want outta there! He was kicking and squirming around so much you could see him moving around without even laying your hand on Duchess.  I will try to take some movies and put them on this page so you all can see this. It's too cool!

Waist measurement: 29 inches

7 more days and counting...

 

01/08/07

60 days: Duchess has started nesting... she was restless and was digging around in her dog bed.  She is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with her tummy full of puppies.   Just check out her measurements below.  

Waist:  31.5 inches
Weight: 63.5 pounds

3 days and counting...

 

01/12/07

64 days (post breeding): ...and no puppies yet.  Duchess should be getting very close... Her temp is still hovering just under 100 degrees (normal is 101.5), but this morning she refused her breakfast, which is an indication that she is not feeling well due to the impending delivery. Up to this point, she's had a really impressive appetite.

After some re-evaluation of the breeding date and timing (she was bred on day 8, and the target date is day 10), we could logically add two days to the original estimated whelping date, which would put us at January 13th.  I really think that her temperature will drop tonight and she will whelp the puppies tomorrow.  (This is just my prediction).

 

01/13/07

65 days (post breeding): At noon today, I have confirmed that Duchess's temperature has indeed dropped.  Her 8 am, 10 am and 12 noon temps were all 98.2 degrees which is below the red line of 98.4.  It is now predicted that she will whelp within the next 24 to 48 hours. In the meantime, we are keeping a close watch on her.

Duchess is taking her own sweet time... temp is staying consistent at 98.2 degrees.
Temp doesn't fall again until 2:00 am to 97.5 degrees.

After 3.5 hours and no more pups, we assume Duchess has finished whelping.

Final count:  8 total (6 males / 2 females)

NOTE:  Due to the lower than anticipated number of females in this litter, Hickory Hollow has decided to relinquish our breeder's right to first pick of this litter in order reduce the disappointment of our first two female deposit holders.  At Hickory Hollow, our first priority will always be to satisfy our clients.
