Can you believe our Italian Greyhound Shiloh??  I have never seen any of my Italian Greyhounds so HUGE with puppies!!!  She is officially due on Thursday the 21sr of May.  HOWEVER, I wake each morning wondering is somehow I have miscalculated the date and should come sooner.   I am seriously wondering HOW many puppies she is carrying??  Got to be at least 8.  I have never had a litter that size before.   We did switch dog food to Iams.  Is that what did it?  Now is the time to place a deposit on this litter.  Already got 4 deposits waiting for babies.  I would accept 2 more, before we see the final count.

Nothing much seems to bother her.  She is very trusting.

Peace is really showing her pregnancy!  Won’t be long and we will see how many Italian Greyhound babies she has hiding in that big pregnant belly of hers!  Hoping to see a large litter from the size of her growing belly.

Shiloh is pudging out a wee bit.  Can’t hide her pregnancy from this human mama any more.  I know what Iggys like to do when they spend time with their boyfriends!!!  Very little courtship is involved, just straight to the bedroom to romp they go!   Never knew dates could be so speedy.

Gracey is chunking up some too!  We shall see on this sly, tricky little mama.

If you have missed out on the puppies, we have 2 more litters of Italian Greyhound puppies due at the end of April.

Mr. Buster is a very busy Beagle man around here!  Currently, he has been entertaining Tina and Candy Kisses on several dating sessions.  Rumor has it that he may have fathered 2 litters of puppies with these girls!  So get ready for some new puppies in about 8 weeks!  We NEED some more puppies:  I have had several people begging for them.  Can’t seem to keep up with the demand around here!!

At our place in the country, our Italian Greyhounds are used to Quiet.  Mooing Cows and our Roaming Farm Dog are the only sounds they hear!  Occasionally they get to hear a lawn mower humming or a tractor starting up!   But, our PUPPIES get to go on exciting adventures ALL over the United States!  It is truly amazing, these little Iggys seem to fit in everywhere!  As long as they can be a part of their human’s lives,  they are very happy dogs!  They take the rules of companionship very personally!  They learn to be your very best friend!

Exciting news on our doggie ranch!  Today we purchased  a New Petite Lemon Beagle girl.  Her name is Abbey and she will be living in our doggie building soon.  She has quite a bit of growing to do.  Just 4 monthes old!  But, on her way to becoming a LOVELY lady!  She is just the prettiest thing!  Looks similar to our Lemonade, but with more freckles.  My this girl is a love-bug.  Sit on my son, Zane’s lap all the way home.  I was very impressed.  Generally Beagles are quite lively in the car.  You can tell she has done some riding in a car before.  Looking forward to the time she becomes an adult of age.  I am thinking she will give us, some very pretty small beagles!  Welcome to your new home,  Abbey Girl!!

Already our little Richmond from the new litter from Eva is claimed!  2 Darling twin boys are dreaming of the day when they  can actually meet their new puppy in person!  Richmond was the ONLY red beagle puppy in Eva’s litter.  Such a pretty one, I am not at all surprised that he sold so very fast!  So if you are hoping for a beagle puppy, it is best to hurry.  These little babies do not last very long!  I am NOT a large breeder and our supplies are very limited!

All the puppies from Miss Emmys litter took a special trip to the vet for their 1st checkup!  I am pleased to report that they were very friendly and greeted the vet with wagging tails!   Nothing like a happy bunch of beagle puppies to put a smile on your face!  My son, Zane, who is 5 years old,  very proudly carried 3 of them into the vets office in a plastic crate.  I am so blessed to have a little helper with my dogs and puppies!

Lucy, our other “Mama in Waiting” was very content and quietly napping when I checked on her!  She did not seem the least bit disturbed that Peace has beat her at the game of building a family!  All that Lucy cares about is treats!  This Italian Greyhound LIVES for the Nu Vet Vitamans that I give each of our dogs each evening.  SHe has NO idea that it is a vitamin.  She simpley  knows it has a wonderful taste and smell!  I get tickled watching her patiently wait her turn for treats!  Reminds me of my little boy at home,   who eagerly begs for his Flintstone Vitamans each day after breakfast!

 

Watch the BlOG tomorrow night for a final count of puppies that we get!!!  Who knows, maybe Lucy will pop tomorrow?

Great News on Brite LIte!  She is due to deliver some precious IG babies on March 5th!  Her tummy is huge!  Every morning, I wake up and eagerly run down to check on her!  As big as she is getting, I wonder if she won’t be a little earlier than I expected!  Hopefully she will give us 4 new puppies and WHo KNOWS?  Could be more in than tummy of hers!!!

With that said,  Jolly Girl and Lemonade Boy  have been quite busy under the covers of darkness!   They should know by now that Mama always finds out later, when Jolly’s tummy starts growing.

 

So more beagle babies will be coming!  Hopefully in about 6 weeks.  If you want one from this litter, a deposit is a necessity~!   That will hold your place in the great line up for puppies!  Currently we have the top 2 picks already RESERVED!

Great NEWS on our human family also!  We  are expecting an adopted newborn  in June.  Adoption agency just called last week and informed us.  Hopefully we will have a new face to put on our website later this year!!  Looking forward to having a baby  in the house again.  My little 4 year old has been praying for a sibling for nearly a year now!

Brite Lite has come into season!  We are excited to report that she has been spending some evenings with our Lion of Judah!  Guess what, I caught them in the act this morning! So new babies from Miss Brite Lite and Lion will be expected in about 9 weeks!  Nothing like celebrating a NEW Year with some new Iggy puppies!

Our Iggy puppies from Peace are growing up on me!!!!  Getting playful, wagging their tails at me and begging to be petted and loved!  Such darling babys we have!  I am sure that someone will be putting their name on one for a nice “January New Year surprise”!!

Our puppies from Gracey are just the cuddliest little muffins!  I stepped out to see them a few minutes ago!  Sweetest little picture,  little Haven had curled up on top of mama:  Gracey’s back!  Just love seeing them cudded up and sleeping with mama!  I do believe, tiny Dalton is the biggest eater of dog food in that bunch!  He is always eating!!!  Every morning when we serve them breakfast on a platter, he is one of the 1st to stick his little mouth in!!!  He loves wet puppy food!  And all of this bunch have been eagerly stealing mama’s dry dog food from her box. These are Greedy little piggies!!!  I shall have NO trouble at all, weaning this bunch from mama!!!  They dearly love their puppy food!!!

Peaces’s litter of puppies are getting quite animated!  Waggin tails and begging paws make it simpley irrestible to pass them by without stopping to pet them.  Of course, Peace must get a fine petting herself!  After ALL, Mamas deserve our time and attention!

Gracey litter of puppies and Peace’s have been introduced to PUPPY KINDergarden!  All the puppies have graduated to pottying on newspapers!  I am pleased to say that we have some very fast learners in these 2 bunches!  THey very carefully leave their sleeping quarters and travel to the “NEW”   bathroom.  Both mamas are quite pleased with this progress from their babies!  They both informed me that they were tired of cleaning up after “Little Babies”.   So  HURRAH for Italian Greyhound babies!  They are moving up the laddar to a “Fine Education”!!

Gracey’s Italian Greyhound babies are beginning to open their eyes!  Little Mario finally has his eyes open!  Several of them are starting to open a tiny slit!  Won’t be long and Miss Gracey will be chasing around some ornery toddlers!  She has a large bunch to look after!  I am sure that Gracey is majorly jealoss of Peace’s quiet world of ONLY 3 tots!

Little Hoppy Hope is in season!  Lion of Judah is much excited about the prospects of spending a night on the town with this “Favorite Lady!  I am wondering what “New” romantic tricks he will have up his sleeve!  I bet Hoppy is hoping for some slow dancing!  Lion is just hoping for a “Quick Roll”  in a warm bed!

Last night, they had a special visit from 4 children that live down the road from us!  My goodness, children delight these little beagle puppies!  My 4 year old son was very proud to show off his beagle puppies!  And I am sure that the children went home begging for a new puppy!  Life does NOT get any better than watching 4 children interact with beagle puppies!

Little Krissy girl is STILL looking for a home!  So if your child needs a special early delivery from Santa Claus,  come on over!  Krissy, the beagle puppy,   would be delighted to have a child she could claim as “Her OWN”.    I am sure she will NOT last long at this time of year!

Kansas Beagles Growing up!! http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/2012/11/08/kansas-beagles-growing-up/ Fri, 09 Nov 2012 03:44:53 +0000 http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/?p=3333 Our little bunch of Beagle puppies from Jolly girl are growing up on me!!!  Little Oreo is now coming to me and begging to be petted!  They are just starting to really get into the petting!  Plus they have a new incentive to come to me!  I introduced these Beagle babies to wet puppy chow!  Yes, . . . → Read More: Kansas Beagles Growing up!!]]> Our little bunch of Beagle puppies from Jolly girl are growing up on me!!!  Little Oreo is now coming to me and begging to be petted!  They are just starting to really get into the petting!  Plus they have a new incentive to come to me!  I introduced these Beagle babies to wet puppy chow!  Yes, They now spend breakfast time, away from mama, sniffing the wet puppy chow.  Little Oreo has decided that he LOVES this new food!  Krissy Girl and Cocoa Puff are still busy investigating it!  I suspect it won’t be long and they will decide that this “New” stuff tastes great too!   Mama Jolly has been using the alone time to visit with her beagle friends in the next bedroom over!  Jolly is so hilarious!  She eagerly heads to their feed bowl and greedily gulps down their dog food.   The other 2 beagles just shake thier heads with amazement, that this new guest just helps herself to their snacks.    You know beagles, they never pass an opportunity to eat food!  Of course, anything different tastes “BETTER”  than their own food .

All the puppies are also starting to really play with each other!  I have caught several of them chewing on each other’s ears!  They love to grab ears and tease one another!  Mama Jolly has introduced a new style for them to drink thier milk snacks!  She insists on standing up for the feeding process!  The puppies have adjusted quite well and simpley eat sitting up, instead of laying down.  Truth be told,  Jolly, is preparing them for weaning!  She knows that feeding puppies is only temperory.  I am sure she is eager for these little children to grow up and get on their own 2 feet!

Joybells Puppies are eating well!  Growing and getting fatter every day!  New pictures will be posted of these little Italian Greyhound puppies on Wednessday of next week!  We have already recieved a deposit on ONE of her babies!  We ONLY have 2 more to choose from.  I strongly suspect they will sell very fast.  Please do NOT miss your opportunity to claim one of these little doll babies!

They now have 2 distinct areas  in their quarters with mama~!  They have a bedroom in the front with heated warm carpet to walk in.  The back area of their quarters is the “Bathroom”.   It is a cooler area with shredded papers to potty on!  I am very pleased to report that they are very good about putting their pottys in the bathroom!  If we could only teach them to “flush”  afterwards,  then life would be much easier for me!  You know beagles, that is entirely ABOVE their comprehension level!  I have heard of a few cats that have acheived this fine “Art”!!

Our 2 puppies from Brite Lite:  Angel and Princess are getting more beautiful every time I look at them!  Somebody is really missing out on some gorgeous Iggy puppies!  And they will be on the smaller side, since Brite Lite is my Tiniest Iggy that I own.  Both Princess and Angel are extremely affectionate!  They love to climb into your arms for luvvin time!  Can’t think of a better Halloween surprise that a NEW puppy at your house!  Much more exciting than Jack-O-Lantarns and pumpkins!

Much different than their furry cuddly mama!

Our weather here in Kansas has definitely taken a cool, chipper, Autumn spell!  Jolly and her newborn puppies are enjoying a warm heat pad on the floor and also a heat lamp.  We always heat our doggie home to 72 degrees, but mama Beagles and puppies need much more warmth.  Especially when their bed is located on the carpeted floor!

More Italian Greyhounds will be coming soon!  Miss Joybells is due for her ONE last litter of puppies on October 16th!  She is the only blue girl that I own~!   After she raises her babies, we will be looking for a NEW PET home for this sweet mama!~  If you are looking for an ADULT Italian Greyhound:  This is your BIG chance!  Joybells is only 3 years old and would make a very loving pet!

Our beagles, on the other hand, could hardly care less about the cool tempertures!  They are still enjoying playing outside with much abandon!  Even snow doesn’t seem to stop their delight in outdoor play!

Our little bunch of puppies from Emmy are growing like little weeds!  You should see their fat little tummies!  They are getting quite used to eating puppy feed now!  I think most of them have just passed the 3 lb mark!  Won’t be long and they will be moving on to thier new homes!  2 of our beagle puppies are enjoying Italian Greyhound company while they eat their puppy food in the morning!  I put 2 of them in with the Iggy babies and they all seem to enjoy eating together!  Although I will admit, beagles are much more sloppy eaters!  Nothing dainty about their eating habits!  They head right for the action, sometimes all 4 paws end up in the food bowl too!  They are quite funny to watch!

If you are looking for freindly and extra loving,  this is the Italian Greyhound  bunch to choose from!!  Get ready to spend lots of time cuddling and petting these babies!  They are very much INTO love!

I am really surprised that they can climb out!  It is quite nearly an 11 inch climb!  I bet mama Emmy was surprised too!  She had been enjoying taking a few naps without them!  Even Beagle mamas need a break sometimes!  So we have been placing the puppies in a special weaning area for 30 minutes each morning to give mama a break!  At this area, they have been happily eating puppy chow!  We will gradually increase the time span until they are completely weaned from mama!  From the hearty eating that I have been seeing from these little babies, I think weaning will be a very SMOOTH Transition for all of  them.

This morning, my little boy, Zane, enjoyed sitting by their bedroom area and watching them move around!  He picked a few puppies up and loved and petted them!  He was also very observant and told me when a puppy started crying for mama!  Mama Emmy was very happy to see my little boy!  She insisted on quite a few pettings herself!  These mama beagles are so good with children!  Where else can you trust a 4 year old with puppies and a mama doggie?  Only With Beagles!!!  They are the very best!  My hope is that each one of these puppies will get to live with children who enjoy playing with them!  Nothing like a child with his best beagle buddy!!

Harvest time has started at our farm!  So my hubby and I are busy driving the combine and tractor!  Even, my little boy Zane gets into the action!  He enjoys riding in the BIG combine with daddy!  This is why my blogging and pictures have been a little slow on coming.  However, my hubby informed me that he has a tractor driver next week, lined out.  THat means I will have some FREE time to take some NEW puppy pictures!  Get ready for some darling shots!

These little Italian Greyhound babies are beginning to develop their personalities also!  It is so darling sweet to watch!  I think Princess Girl is going to be very outgoing!  This little Girl now rolls on her belly for belly-rubs!  She also wags her tail and trys to see out the top of the whelping area when she hears me greeting her mama!  Casey Boy is now getting into the luvvins too!  Toffee and Angel are still on the shy side!  Who knows this is just the beginning?  I love to watch them at this age.  Next week, we shall begin to introduce them to wet puppy food!  I think they are getting ready for this!  I saw a couple of them smelling and snooping in mama’s feed!

BriteLite’s bunch of babies are standing up and trying to walk a step or 2 on thier own!  It is quite hilarious to watch them!  They take a step and then topple over, much like clumsy toddlers learning to walk.  Most of thier eyes are open now!  I am certain they are amazed at  the sight of the  HUGE human mama that comes to pet and talk to them each day!  Little Princess almost came to me when I sat by their bedroom quarters!  I know she was thinking about it!  Brite Lite the mama insisted on getting a bellyrub tonight!   All nursing mamas deserve a massage, every once in a while!  It is hard work to feed 4 puppies.

 

My Italian Greyhounds, Lion of Judah and Lucy,  have been really busy making out and enjoying some major bed romping!  Caught those 2 in the middle of the act,  TWO times today!  You know Iggys are absolutely shameless about this activity!  I do believe Lucy is the HOTTEST Iggy we have here!   She has the longest love cycle of anybody here in our doggie world!  So I am thinking we shall have a large litter of Iggy puppies from them in about 9 weeks.

We have 7 LEMONS and 1 RED color.  The red is a boy!    5 Girls and 3 Boys!  Don’t let people talk you out of a little beagle boy!  They can be really sweet too!  If neutered at a young age,  boys make very loving pets!  Some of my favorite housedogs have been boys!

Currently we have 2 people on our waiting list and choosing puppies from this litter of beagles.  So it may take a while before they are brought down to the puppy page.  More Pictures coming in about 10 days!

Miss Emmy the beagle with her puppies!

Pictures will be a little slow on coming on this new litter!  This week I am focusing on taking my OWN Human  family pictures!  So please have patience with me!  I have definitley not forgotten about letting my online audience see these pretty babies!

Today we had a few drops to rain!  Our crops are so thirsty!  I am sure my beagles wondered about the wet stuff falling from the sky!  It has been so long since it rained, they probally forgot what it feels like outside.  We don’t even mow grass anymore!

Little Viola,  our other Beagle girl,   is due to have puppies by my calandar on July 24th!  But, I am just not so sure?  If she is pregnant, she sure is hiding it, these last couple of weeks.  I expected her to be quite large now and I am sadly disappointed!  She is Either NOT prego, or she is hiding 1 or 2 puppies in her tummy.  Only time will tell.  She does spend time playing outdoors.  My vet has informed me that several people that breed dogs are coming up dissappointed with the Hot tempertures!  Apparently, playing outside at times can possibley affect whether girls get pregnant or not!  Makes sense to me!  After all, who wants to have a “Roll in the Hay”  after sweating outside for a while.  I have noticed several dogs just napping indoors where it is cooler during the heat of the day.  Who only knows?  I wished I had an answer, but I really do not.  So I know that in a couple of weeks I shall have a definite answer on this Viola girl!  To all my waiting customers”  Please be patient with me,  I am still learning about this doggie business”.     I just do the VEry Best with What I have been given!!

Emmy girl’s due date is August 11th!!  So we will count on having beagle puppies in August for sure!

Little Mercy gets our award for the fistiest ball of energy!  She gives the other Italian Greyhound puppies a real run for their money!  She loves to knock them down and just tackle them.  She is the smallest in her litter and she definitely makes up for her small size!  Isaac and Terrance are the 2 biggest puppies and they are really calm and laid back.  Tonight little Mercy tried chewing on my toes!  She is so ornery and then she just runs to my lap and tries to get me to hug her.  How can you resist an Iggy hug?

4th of July went really smoothly for our Beagle Family!  This is the time that I am so GLAD that we live way out in the country!  No frightening, scarey Fireworks for our doggies to watch!  We went to the neighbors house tonight and their dog was terrified of our festivities.  He did NOT want to leave house!  The host offered him a portion of homemade icecream to comfort him.   The special Power of Ice Cream makes ALL things better!

On our trip home, most everybody was very quiet and we road peacefully!  However, we did have a couple of whiners that insisted on letting everybody know They did NOT appreciate having such a long ride home!  Hopefully,  Their attitudes will improve the next time we travel.  However, I have a little unpleasant surprise for them?  The Vet is making a special trip to my farm and Kennel for our ANNUAL Good Health Dog Check.  Everyone:  Puppy and Adults will have to say Hello to our Friendly Vet!  She only comes out to our place 1 time per year for a very special Hello!

On an Extremely Happy Note:  All the Italian Greyhound Babies are Fully weaned and Eating well now(  24 hours a day)  without mamas.  That is Great News!!  They will soon be ready for their new homes!

 

Hoppy Hope DID have her puppies!  Look for Pictures on Tuesdays POst!!!  Gorgeous colors:  Blue, Blue Fawn and Seal colors!!!  Get ready to see some little dolls!

These little Iggy babies are also ready for their 1st vet visit this week!  We shall find out who rides well in the car!  Hopefully, we won’t have anybody getting car-sick on me!  That isn’t fun for anybody!  I am guessing that they will all pass thier 1st vet visit with flying colors!  All my Italian Greyhound babies seem to be really healthy!

Little Bruno enjoyed his 1st belly rub tonight!  He is such a little sweetheart!  Mercy, from Peace’s litter, greeted me with little whines waiting to be petted!  Such a loving little girl!  Somehow I am not at all surprised!  Peace and Tiggertails are both hugely friendly and extemely into getting their affection from me!  They always produce the Best Personalities in my Iggy babies!  Little Sedrick couldn’t let his sister outdo him, so he stretched out for a belly rub!  I love giving belly rubs to these little Italian Greyhound puppies!

My adult beagles Love the trip in the car, particularly if they are only dog going!  Looking out the window in the passengers’s side is their delight!  I am always glad that I can keep the windows up.  It would be just like a beagle to go flying out, chasing after a rabbit or squirrel.  You know beagles, they are always on the lookout for entertainment!

I am pleased to report that ALL of them were very happy to be back home!  Not a whimper out of a single one!  Mama Jolly joyfully greeted them!  I think this beagle mama was very happy to see them come to her bedroom.

 

As of today, All our beagles are officially weaned!  And they have adjusted well.  Eating dry dog food and drinking water entirely on their own.

Lucy, our other Italian Greyhound that I have been waiting on, has been rather lazy today~!  I am wondering if we will see some more happy faces from her tonight!  She just looks like she could deliver puppies any time!  As soon as I am done on the computer, I am going to check on her before I sleep tonight!

I love the excitement of new puppies!  Nothing like seeing brand new life, freshly created by our Heavenly Father!

Gracey and Lucy Girl are already showing their pregnancy!  I am expecting big litter from both of these girls!  Maybe we will see 6 little Italian Greyhounds from both of these girls!  Peace and Joybells are still hiding their babies on me!  Faith is starting to round out a bit!  Before long, we should have plenty of Iggy puppies to make everybody happy!  Plenty to choose from!

I am planning on doing new pictures for all the beagle puppies on Friday of this week.  Watch the beagle puppy page,  you will see their new pics posted there!

Our little beagle Jolly has still NOT delivered her puppies!  Daily I am amazed that I have not seen these new puppies yet!  I keep thinking every time I run to check on her that surely she will have some special babies in her little bed.  So far, she is still a Single Lady!  I will keep you posted on her status!

However, he has certainly been enjoying his stay here with us!  I have been teaching him and some beagle puppies HOW to exit our doggie door to go play outside.  These little puppies LOVE playing outside on our warm spring days here!  Our farm dog, GUS, has been totally mesmerized watching these young puppies play outside.  On the 1st day, Gus, stood guard by thier fence line and made sure they behaved themselves.  Gus has appointed himself as t he Special “Police Force” around here!  He carefully watches ALL our dogs and makes sure nobody gets out of line.  He even peers inside the kennel windows and watches me as I give shots to new puppies!  Nothing slides by our farm dog!

Hopefully Ethan, our Iggy puppy,  will be going home to a new home in Missouri, tomorrow evening!  We shall see!  I know that he will make a very fine cuddle muffin for someone to love!

Saturday, we are going for a drive to pick up a brand new Beagle Boy!  This little puppy is Tri-colored and we are hoping to raise him to be another beagle daddy for our girl dogs!  He is supposed to be extra small and I am hoping this will give us some EVEN smaller beagles.   But, he will definitely have some growing to do!  We won’t be breeding him for quite a long time!~   But, my little Boy, Zane, will certainly enjoy having a beagle puppy that he can actually KEEP this time!

3 or our beagle puppies discovered a fun little trick while I was outside cleaning this morning.  I kept hearing all the adult dogs just barking and barking inside the kennel building.  I assumed they were frusterated with me being in thier outside space, cleaning!  Boy, I was sure wrong!!  They were trying to tattle on the 3 beagle puppies who had discovered some mischeif!  Every one of my adult dogs know it is wrong  to run in the kennel aisle when I am not around to watch!  Today Casey, French Fry and Tyler unlatched their bedroom door.  Then they enjoyed romping up and down the aisle and teasing ALL the other dogs with thier mischeiveious ways.  These little beagle babies got into the newspapers and chewed and scattered them around.  Then they discovered the trash bags and shared with the Italian Greyhounds so they could join in on the fun!  However, I ended their Happy Party when I came inside after my cleaning efforts.  Imagine my surprise when 3 happy puppies greet me!   This time, I was very careful and latched their bedroom door very tightly!  I am quite sure they were sorely dissappointed to see me end their happy ripping and  taring party.  Kind of reminds me of happy toddlers ripping newspapers!  I remember those days at our house when my little boy was totally mesmerized by ripping newspapers!!

So Ethan will be getting a NEW playmate to play with tomorrow so he won’t get too bored with himself!  I am going to introduce him to one of my beagle puppies!  It should be really funny to watch them check each other out!  Beagle puppies like to play too, however, they don’t realize that Iggys bring playtime to an entirely different level than they are accustomed to playing.  I am sure I will see 2 tired puppies at the end of playtime.

Our little Italian Greyhounds puppies from Brite Lite were NOT so lucky!  They did INDEED got to the vet today for their 1st check up!  I am betting they were wishing that Faith and Peace would have opened their little door too!  But no such luck,  So off to the vet they went!  I am please to report they passed the vet inspection with flying colors!  And they were very well behaved on the car ride!  Hardly a single peep out of them.  Such good little Iggys!

Our adult Italian Greyhounds are having trouble adapting to our frigid weather today!  They decided it was far too cold to potty outside!  So guess what?  I had some surprises waiting on me to clean up!  I think they thought the temperture was perfect and warm inside!  Why change a good thing just because Nature Calls you outside!  I can’t hardly blame them!  I was chilled to the bone just walking to the kennel area!  I am so HAPPY we heat our building to a warm 72 degrees!  It feels very comfortable inside!    I just wish that ALL my Iggys would understand we put potties outside!  Yes, even when it is cold!

Emmy’s little beagle puppies have discovered mama’s dry dog food!  They are boldly dipping in and taking a few bites of the yummy stuff!  Emmy is not sure what she thinks of this NEW bold behavior!  I didn’t tell her that each morning, I have been introducing them to wet puppy food when she is not around.  Every morning I take them out of Emmy’s bedroom and place them in the weaning area with wet puppy food!  A few of them have tasted samples and decided it is good stuff!

Almost all of our beagle babies have new homes waiting on them!  I think there must have been a lot of Valentine’s Day request for beagle puppies!  I have never seen them sell so very fast!   One of our puppies has a home in Nebraska waiting on him.  However most of our babies will be staying in our home state!   So get ready for some hugs and kisses from our beagle puppies when they go home in March!

Little Kedron and Charlie boy ( the last 2 older IG puppies) are quite the circus at playtime!  Little Charlie litterally leaps over Kedron to beat him running down the kennel aisle!  Kedron seems to take it  all in stride!  He has other entertaining things to try, such as finding my sandles and dragging them across the floor!      He was especially proud of himself tonight!  Somehow he managed to pull my jacket down and drag it across the floor.     Italian Greyhound puppies make the most of every occasion and never cease to amaze you!  A constant stream of amusement!

On the beagle dog perspective:  Males are quite easily neutered!  I have waited in my vets office for little puppies for 20 minutes and the procedure was done.  Plus it can be done so much earlier than girls!  Often by 10 weeks of age.  Girls on the other hand, have to wait till 6 months of age to spay them.  And it is very extensive surgery and way more expensive.  So if you are looking for a low cost beagle:  I strongly recommend getting a boy!

Kansas Italian Greyhound Puppies Have a Check-Up!! http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/2011/12/22/kansas-italian-greyhound-puppies-have-a-check-up/ http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/2011/12/22/kansas-italian-greyhound-puppies-have-a-check-up/#comments Fri, 23 Dec 2011 02:08:56 +0000 http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/?p=2374 Our little Italian Greyhounds from Peace and Hoppy Hope went to the vet today!  These little Iggy puppies felt the blast of winter as we carried them to our car.  We have 2 inches of snow on the ground and they have never left their warm 72 Degree kennel building before.  Thank goodness, we have a . . . → Read More: Kansas Italian Greyhound Puppies Have a Check-Up!!]]> Our little Italian Greyhounds from Peace and Hoppy Hope went to the vet today!  These little Iggy puppies felt the blast of winter as we carried them to our car.  We have 2 inches of snow on the ground and they have never left their warm 72 Degree kennel building before.  Thank goodness, we have a very nice heater in our car!  We took the trip quite slow and arrived safely at the vets’ office.  Our  vet was very surprised to see the 2 white Iggy puppies from Hoppy Hope’s litter.  She had never seen Italian Greyhounds with so much white before.  All of our babies passed the very thorough check up with flying colors!!  What a healthy bunch of Iggys we have.  Every puppy was very polite:  no a single potty on the examining table!  I think everyone was well entertained by my 3 year old son, Zane.  His reward for taking all his puppies to the vet is a BIG animal cracker snack from our wonderful veternarian.  She and her hubby really dote on the kids!

All our puppies returned home with not a single upset tummy!  Great NEws!  You never know, sometimes we do experience car sickness in little puppies!  In time’s past, I  remember one vet visit, in which an Iggy unloaded his complete breakfast in my lap on the way home!  Believe me, that is one experience I will never forget!

Faith’s litter of Italian Greyhound puppies are finally, Completely Weaned from mama.    Tomorrow Faith will be running with her adult Iggy friends.   I am sure they will be overjoyed to see her again.  And I think she will enjoy romping and playing with adults again.

I bet the rest of our puppies will be a little jealoss that they don’t get to go on a car ride with us!  However, they will have a wonderful dog sitter that really dotes on our puppies!

All the puppies were very kind to the vet!  Nobody pottied on her examining table!  I think she was impressed with the Fine looking colors that we seem to be having in Iggy puppies!  She declared every one of them to be healthy puppies!  For this I am grateful!  We had only a very few minor things to fix and I am pleased!

All of Lucy’s little Italian Greyhounds have very stout tummies!  They took the car ride very well, even after eating breakfast.  Faiths little Iggys had one or two upchucks!  So apparently they have a little motion sickness!  So be prepared when you take her puppies home with you.

Here at our farm, Lucy’s litter and Peaces’s litter of Iggys are completely weaned from Mama now!  I am so proud of them.  They are eating really well now!  Both Lucy and Peace have returned to all their adult Iggy friends and are quite happy to be romping and playing with no puppies to feed!

Hoppy’s little puppies and Faiths little puppies are still in the process!  I suspect Faith’s will be weaned next week sometime.  Hoppy Hopes puppies may take a little longer to complete the weaning journey!

It amazes me that they seem to have a 6th sense about them.

Beagle puppies on the other hand, are downright ridiculous!  They seem not to have a clue about the vet’s office.  They come right out and expect the vet to pet and love on them.  I almost laugh at them sometimes!  Italian Greyhounds are definitely the “Smarter Breed”!

Little Hoppy Hopes babies were trying to jump and climb out of their whelping area!  In fact, I think I heard a little bark from one of her puppies.   Several puppies were playfully biting each other and trying to tackle each other.

Little Faiths puppies were getting into belly rubs again!  Sienna Girl was the 1st one to stretch out for a belly rub from me.  McKenzie was following close behind, she never misses a belly rub session.  It is so darling cute to watch!

Little Lucys puppies were wound up tight tonight!  Little Georgia was jumping and tackling Pippa Girl.  I don’t think any of them stood around for a single second!  They take playtime to whole new level!

Peaces puppies were peeking over the whelping box, trying to get the very first pettin and love session from me!  I believe Rosa was successful enough to get the very 1st pettings tonight!  Little Zach was quick to demand his fair share of luvvings for the evening.  Mama Peace is very content and patiently waits till it is her turn for a last minute pet.

Nothing like watching little Italian Greyhound puppies play just before bedtime!  I am sure they will be OUT like light bulbs in another hour or so!

I have started placing Lucy’s babies and Peace’s babies in our weaning area for about 30 minutes each morning.  I fix them up a special plate of puppy chow with water poured over it.  All the babies seem to enjoying this special treat.  And it prepares them for leaving mama by getting them used to rooming in the weaning area.  I do a slow weaning process here and gradually transfer them over.  We do the 30 minutes each day and then the next step is 1/2 day without mama.  But, it will be a while before we make it to the next milestone.

3 litters of Iggy puppies have graduated to Kindergarten for puppies!  Peaces, Faith’s and Lucy’s have all recieved a special area to potty inside their rooms with mama.  I took out thier carpeted quarters and replaced it with a smaller piece of carpet.  The other side is full of shredded paper!  So we have a bedroom on one side and a big bathroom on the other side.  The Iggys have adapted very well.  I saw more then 1 pottying in the special bathroom!  Iggy puppies are so very bright!  They catch on a little faster than my beagle puppies!

Hopes’s litter of Iggys are getting fatter every day!  But, I think they still need a little more time till we graduate them to Puppy Kindergarten!

Peaces’s litter of Iggys are the freindliest bunch of puppies.  They all huddle by my hand trying to get a special love session with their human mama.  Faith’s litter of Iggys are really into belly rubs.  Little McKenzie and Vicky both rolled over for tummy time tonight!  I love giving those belly rubs.

Several of them are  trying out the new chew toys.   They are busy discovering the joys of eating from their own feed box, instead of sharing with mama!  And they love to jump and tackle each other.

Mama Jolly is learning to enjoy the adult world of her friends again.  She does whine occasionally and let me know she misses her babies.  But, for the most part she  is busy with her 2 Italian Greyhound freinds:  Tiggertails and BriteLite.   They look  at her rather quizzically and wonder why she doesn’t jump as high as they do!!   You know  those short little beagle legs can’t lift you up too far!

He insists on never letting me pass his room without a love session.  Jolly, our mama beagle, is beginning to spend more time sleeping outside the whelping box.  I am sure she is trying to give them the hint to start eating more on their own.  All of them drink freely from her water area!  Won’t be long and this little bunch will be spending their 1st half day without mama.

Our little Italian Greyhounds from Faith have competely opened their eyes!  They are still getting used to the bright lights and seeing me in person.  They often wonder how such a nice sweet voice could come from somebody as funny looking as me!  I would imagine they have been discussing with their mama Iggy, Faith, why I don’t have fur and a tail like they do.   Faith is just one laid back mama, she just smiles and takes it in stride!  She is just a happy girl with her sweet bunch of babies.

Peace, our other mama Iggy, has been really patient with me!  She kindly lets me know that SHE is just as important as her babies.   She eats it up when I stop to pet and talk to her.  Her little baby, Linus, has opened his eyes this morning!  I was so shocked!  It won’t be long and the rest of her bunch will be staring at the lights!

Our Italian Greyhound, Hope, is one jumping, excited girl!  She keeps up with all the gossip in the kennel!  She eagerly starts bouncing everywhere as soon as I put all the beagle pups in the weaning area to eat breakfast!  She has told me on several occasions that she does not approve of puppies leaving mamas for 20 minutes each morning.  In fact, Hope, is so animated,  I have to give her an exercise session with Tiggertails each morning to calm her down.  Tiggertails, just stares at her in the typical male fashion and just shakes his head!    And so when Hope is out with Tiggertails, her babies sleep rather soundly in their beds.   They often get a very rude awakening when she comes bouncing back from her morning walk.  Hopes little babies are just used to having a bouncey mama!!

I also placed a source of drinking water inside their whelping area today!  That way they can watch mama drink water.  Eventually they work up the courage to sample some water theirselves.  Independance is ON the WAY for these growing beagle puppies!

Lemonade, the daddy beagle,  is enjoying a new roommate today!  I introduced him to little Brite Lite, one of my Italian Greyhound Girls!  She is really mad because 2 of our Iggy girls came into heat yesterday!  And she does not like to be around Grouchy Girls!  So I am letting her room with Lemonade until those PMS Iggy girls get over their selves!  Lemonade, our beagle boy,   is proudly getting to know his new playmate.

Here are the cuties!!    The 2 tiniest pups are:  Timmy and Standley.  They are both doing REALLy well too!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful vacation in Finger Lakes Missouri!  Camping, cooking out and riding around in a paddle boat!  My little 3 year old son has already declared he wants MORE VACATION!  I am sure my doggie family would not approve of such a plan!  I think they genuinely missed seeing me!  Although they had a very fine dog sitter who cared for their slightest needs!  I am amazed how much our little beagle puppies grow in just 1 week!

The rest of our Iggy puppies were introduced to their doggie sitter!  She will be caring for them while I am on vacation!  She is well aquainted with Italian Greyhound energy and orneryness.  I am quite confident they will be showing off their latest tricks for the doggie sitter during playtime!  Everyone knows what Children do when the Substitute comes to School!  Lets hope these Iggys Puppies can keep a lid on their behavior!  I am hoping for a GOOD report when I come home!

I had just finished working with Emmy’s puppies and I had moved to work on Violas little beagle puppies.  Little did I know, I had forgot to secure the enclosure where Emmy and her puppies were resting and nursing.  I was now working on Violas beagle puppies!  Emmy is one good mama!  She heard Viola’s puppy crying and left her own brood to come and check on a crying puppy that was not even hers!   Needless to say, Viola declared this was HER puppy and she would comfort it HERSELF!  “I am not an ignorant mama and I do not need your help, ”  she declared to Emmy.  Nothing beats a beagle mama!  I use to have one beagle mama who thought all puppies belonged to her!  She was really depressed when everyone around her,  had puppies and she didn’t have any puppies to cuddle with!

Kansas Italian Greyhound Puppy Wagging Tail! http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/2011/07/06/kansas-italian-greyhound-puppy-wagging-tail/ Thu, 07 Jul 2011 01:11:33 +0000 http://www.joyfulpuppytails.com/?p=1678 Our little Italian Greyhound puppies from Gracey are really growing up!  They are standing and walking around.  Starting to discover the joy of thier litter mates.  When I went in to say ” Hello” to them a while ago.  Oliver started wagging his tail and begging me to pick him up!  It was so darling cute!  . . . → Read More: Kansas Italian Greyhound Puppy Wagging Tail!]]> Our little Italian Greyhound puppies from Gracey are really growing up!  They are standing and walking around.  Starting to discover the joy of thier litter mates.  When I went in to say ” Hello” to them a while ago.  Oliver started wagging his tail and begging me to pick him up!  It was so darling cute!  I saw tail wags from some of his siblings too!  But Oliver is the 1st puppy in this litter that has begged for attention!  How can you resist a puppy like that!  Socialization and picking them up at 3 days old is finally beginning to pay off.  I am really free and liberal about picking them up since the day they are born.  In fact, I do it quite deliberately so they can get use to being handled and learn to recognize my voice!  When they are newborns, they don’t quite know what to think of this human mama!  But when they start maturing and walking around they come to associate me with luvvins.  I know the mamas really look forward to thier daily supply of luvvins and pettins.

Brite Lites 2 Iggy puppies are successfully weaned!  No more drinking milk from mama!  They are BIG puppies now!  They run with all the other Italian Greyhound puppies and drink water out of the lixit bottles, now!  I am so proud of them.  Little Angela and Bryson are 2 smart Iggys.  Didn’t take them very long to understand the BIG puppy world.  Plus they have new friends to play with now!

Tomorrow it is TRIP to the vet day for ALL of Brite Lites and Peaces puppies!  Hopefully everyone will have a tough stomach and nobody will get car sick!  I am sure our vet will be impressed with these new Italian Greyhound puppies!  Everyone of our Iggy puppies has to have 1 thorough vet check before they are sent on their NEW homes!    That way, I can BE sure that everyone is Totally Healthy!!

Hope’s litter of Italian Greyhounds have started leaving for their new homes!  We have one person flying in to Kansas on a special mission to pick up his new puppy very soon!

Peace and Brite Lites litter of Italian Greyhounds recieved their 1st vacinations today!  I am pleased to say they were all Brave Little Puppies!  Not a single one of them cried.  It always helps to have mama petting and talking to you when you get your 1st shot!  My husband, Roy, has to play the bad guy and administer the pain of shots.  My role is quite easy:  Just pet and talk to them!

 

Pictures on ALL PUppies will be delayed this week.  I am teaching a Bible school class this week and My little boy is attending his 1st summer Bible school!  We are plenty busy and just barely surviving with all this activity.  I am sure that next week will calm down and I hope to get new pics taken on Monday and posted by Tuesday!  So hang in there, and have patience with a very busy mama of puppies and 1 human little boy!
