A typical day

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Sunday, January 22, 2012, In : Litter blog 
The past week just seemed to have dissapeared. The puppies are taking up more of my time, as their waking hours become longer and I am trying to fill their expanding minds and increasing body awareness with ever new little challenges.
A typical day starts at about 6.00 am, after I made myself a cup of coffee, I open the "jail gates" (at least that is how the puppies think of their puppy pen ;-)). I still need to help them get to the outside quickly, before the bedroom carpet receives all thei...

First Official Photo Shoot - perhaps not front page yet

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Monday, January 16, 2012, In : Litter blog 
Yesterday was a very exciting day for the puppies and a totally new experience. Johann Theron of the Animaltalk Magazine came to take pictures for an article they do that features Pyrenean Sheepdog (among other breeds). He first took action shots of Chippy, followed by a few portrait shots of Lollie and then lots of puppy pictures.
This one Johann posted on his facebook page this morning :-)

Johann wanted some action shots of the puppies running across the lawn together and suggested Anthony h...

Puppies starting to play

The puppies are exploring their surrounding and learning to interact.
These video clips were taken last week when the puppies were not quite 4 weeks old.

Pyrenean garden outing, Jan 12

Posted by Gaby on Saturday, January 14, 2012, In : Litter blog 
We had mum Lollie, granny Quincy, uncle Chippy (Lollie's brother) and of course the puppies in the garden together.

They definitely are starting to develop little identities.

Granny loves to play with the puppies and Lollie is getting more and more relaxed about it (previously we had to "sneak in" some time without Lollie knowing about it ;-))

The boys like to have some time together - BB, HB and Chippy

Even Chippy's toys are interesting (most things qualify as toys for Chips, this was a stick ...

Puppies are moving to "real" food

Posted by Gaby on Saturday, January 14, 2012, In : Litter blog 

I am reporting that the puppies have “discovered” real food and I couldn’t get their little faces out of the dish this morning :-).

This is quite an achievement, as I have been trying to get food, other than Lollie's milk into them for some time and they were just not interested. I have a fairly good imagination and I tried everything I could think of - singly and in combination. But bar a few polite licks, I had firm decline on all my "cooking".

This story is not as rosy as it soun...

First single outing by Lacroix

Posted by Gaby on Thursday, January 12, 2012, In : Lacroix 
Lac is a lot less adventurous than his sister Chanel. This is today's portrait

and this is his "uggly face"

this is a "full body shot". By the time he had his head up, he was in motion again. I will keep trying to get a "show stance" shot :-)

He rather has things "come to him" than him going and finding things to do. So when meeting Waldi, he just sat there

If you have read Chanel's blog entry earlier, in the following picture Waldi really seems to say "Are you going to kiss me too?"

Like his un...

First single outing by Chanel

Posted by Gaby on Thursday, January 12, 2012, In : Chanel 
Beacuse there are (finally) so many pictures, I will categorize them under each puppy's name, so if you want to follow a particular puppy it will be easier.

The puppies are starting to meet the family (all under tight supervision of course). Chanel (aka HG) is developing into the most outgoing puppy - so very Un-Pyrenean ;-). And she is extremely adventurous. Yesterday we had "singles sessions" for the first time and I had an opportunity to take some pictures because I could concentrate on one...

Pre-quel with video

Posted by Gaby on Thursday, January 12, 2012, In : Litter blog 
Finally the promised video.
I have to warn you, it is just about puppies taking their first wobbly steps. No fireworks :-). But if you enjoy young puppies you may just be smiling for a few minutes while watching my babies.

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Tuesday, January 10, 2012, In : Litter blog 
This will be a blog of "catching up".
Firstly, let me introduce the wonderful dad: Aneou, who lives with his owner Isabelle in Switzerland.

For more pictiures and to see this amazing little dog, go to Isabelle's website:
You all knopw Lollie of course, but just in case you want to have another look, she has her own blog (sort of, when I take the time) and this is a new picture of her

1 month old

Posted by Gaby on Sunday, January 8, 2012, In : Litter blog 
Tomorrow the puppies will be 1 month old. It is hard to believe. Of course I was late with starting this blog, but it is now under way.
We are narrowing the names down, but for easy reference until they have been finalised the puppies are as follows:
firstborn: HB (stands for Harlequin boy). The french name for the "merle" colour is "arlequin", or english "harlequin". Since these are special dogs, I like to use the special colour reference :-). The second born was the BG (black Girl). Of cours...
