Country Pound Pups - 15 Of Them! 18 Now

Definition of cute...

Two energetic 6 week old ACD pups playing zoomies like there is no tomorrow...

... only downside is that it happens at 9pm when foster mummy is shattered and can't be arsed to get the camera out.

Clyde is now flaked out on the couch and Bonnie is still looking for something to chew on.

Clydie is the definite sooky 'I love cuddles from everyone' boy, and Bonnie is definitely the adventurous and cocky one - but when you catch her for a cuddle'she melts into you for the bestest smoochies.

Oh - and the 'mastiff' cross pups look a lot more boxer than mastiff - thanks Katdogs, boxer was the breed I was thinking of too - all ears and dome heads... and that divine mahogany bridle with the flashing on the chests and socks...

According to pound notes their mum was a kelpie - but I'm not seeing a lot of that in them either. They are also the nicest tempered little tackers.

The 3 heeler type cattle pups are a bit timid, but will come to you for a cuddle... I'll have them more confident in no time methinks. They were a bit feral with food, but I've already sorted that by making sure they have more food than they can eat in a sitting, and we now have much more placid eating habits...

Greg thinks Boxer too, crossed with something small and pointy-nosed.

Ive never felt fur like Bonnie and Clyde - they'd make lovely slippers :eek: Just so plush and silky.

You might get a burgler tomorrow ;)

Even more cute than 6 week old puppy zoomies is a 30kg 7 month old Dane cross lying on her back and allowing two 6 week old fluffballs to have their way... *grin*

Katdogs, if you decide to burgle, can you clean up the poopies in their playpen before putting them back? I'm sure they will have done some by the time you want to come over.

Note to others - there are only 2 people on the planet who have the balls to try to come into my place when I'm not home... Katdogs is one of them... haha!

All pups were wormed yesterday - not looking forward to cleaning up the boxer pups' granny flat pen this morning - I'd already cleaned up some "interesting" poopies before I went to bed last night... and I'm sure there will be plenty more of that waiting for me this morning... errr! I think I'll just have to burn the dropsheet. We knew they were wormy, and dosed them a little below their weights with Canex, which is a lot gentler on the gut than things like Drontal - and by the look of what was coming out last night, they'll be dosed again next Saturday to finish the job...

Bonnie and Clyde only had 1 worm each in one poo each yesterday afternoon... nice healthy babies. I think the person who surrendered them has done a pretty good job of worming regularly and also socialising them in the home - they aren't fazed by things like the TV or radio, and are very people and dog friendly... oh... and they are lovely, confident little tackers.

Oh well... it's finally daylight here... must go and clean up the other sets of pups and give them some playtime and cuddles and breakfast. Damn it's hard having to cuddle 10 pups every morning... *grin*

No more worms from anyone this morning... but quite a bit of post worming sloppies... ewww! And the boxer pups can climb... there were 2 out of the pen in the granny flat this morning. I'll rethink my strategies about their setup tomorrow methinks - for now I've put extra food, water, toys, and bedding outside their pen in case anyone escapes while I'm out today.

Katdogs - if you want boxer puppy cuddles today, just undo the shoelace holding the back door open and shut Zeddy and Pickles inside before you go into the granny flat... oh - and make sure you put the sleeper back in place to block the puppy escape point under the gate - I found out they can get under it this morning... lol! Don't forget to let Pickles and Zeddy out when you have finished playing with the pups - they are the anti puppy burglary system... hehe!

The 3 heeler pups are so sweet - the stumpy tailed blue girl is more shy than the 2 reds, but she comes up for a pat and will cuddle nicely. No fighting over food any more now either... yay!

Im looking for a new puppy, when will they be ready to meet?

Which ones are you looking at ozsomerset?

All of the pups have 2 weeks quarantine, then they will need to be desexed - so most of them would be ready from about 3 weeks from now at the earliest.

The ages now are - as best we can tell...

2 ACD pups - 6 weeks - 1 boy, one girl

5 Boxer cross pups - 7 weeks - 4 girls, 1 boy

3 Heeler pups - 10 weeks - 2 girls, 1 boy

2 Pei cross pups - 4.5 months - 2 boys

1 GSD cross - possibly deaf - 12 weeks - girl

1 Kelpie cross (Whippet?) - 8 weeks - girl

1 Rotti(?) cross - 5 months - boy

Thank you so much for taking the Narrandera pups. We are very grateful and wish them all the very best of a future with loving families. Please keep us posted as I know people who are interested. The bull mastiff x ridgeback x kelpie pups' owner is dying from mesothelioma and has desexed the mum, a beautiful red kelpie named "Ruby" so please don't judge everyone equally Voodookitten. :) I have also met the dad "Boss" a brindle heavy set dog with a bully head like an amstaff and I know they don't look anything like their mum but she is def a kelpie. I have pics.

Oh T! OHHHHHHHHHHHH! :dancingelephant:

I can't even work out which one I like the best! I was however thinking that the pei may be lab crosses just based on coats and snouts. Ams would know better of course but they reminded me of a little black peilab she had last year. He grew to be a big boy but has a lovely nature.

Is it possible to post a pic of their dad chezal58? The pups look really boxer-ish - I can't see any bully or mastiff in them at all... there isn't a boxer type dog living anywhere near is there?

OK - the heeler pups now have names...

Red girl - Felony - she is so sweet that it's simply criminal... lol!

Red boy - Ned - as in Ned Kelly, as he is a bit of a bushwhacker... runs up and launches himself at you for a pat.

Blue stumpy tailed girl - Charm - well, she certainly has lots of that!

As for the "we can climb out of our pen" Boxer cross babies - still no names, but I'm starting to lean towards anything that means "I can poo lots"! Seriously, they are really good at pooping... lol! We have 4 girls and 1 boy, and they are all really social little tackers - you should see the puppy claw marks on my legs!

I'll see about getting some pics this afternoon of the 3 lots I have here - there will be much squealing when you see head shots of the Boxer cross babies, they have the cutest faces...

OK - it was hard work getting puppies out and playing with them to get photos (not)... *grin*

Here are Bonnie and Clyde, and with Harper... Clyde is the one with the big dark patch over his eye, Bonnie has slightly darker fur and her patch is above her eye.

These kids haven't got names yet, and I'm going to have to get some different coloured collars to be able to tell them apart methinks...

Hahaha! It's the camera, honest! I have a fairly decent DSLR - just point it in the right direction and hit the button - the camera does the rest for me.

It also helps to have such stunning subjects to point at... when they aren't climbing all over me... *grin*
