OTC Pupdate 06/24/15

Last new post for a bit, as it's back to work tomorrow....

Today was a big day for Spicy's OTC3 litter.  Eyes are pretty much all open (at least mostly open), and they had their first try at puppy mash.  It was a messy ordeal, but they loved it.

They also had their first toenail trim today; the OTC 1 & 2 pups had their third.  Tuesday is always 'Tooth and Toenails' day at Horsetooth, so that means by the time the dust had all cleared, Jen had trimmed 514 toenails and brushed 630 teeth!  Fun for the whole family.  :)

Here are the latest pics from yesterday and today:
 Pixie Stix - hanging out with Penelope & Zagnut

 Moon Pie's new hat.

 Fermi says, "Dude...how can you sleep with all these puppies in the house?"

 Alfredo's not sweating it.

 Uncle Feynman

 OTC 3 Milkbar:  A bit of Clark, Rolo, Peppermint Patty, Twizzler, Squirrel Nut Zipper

 The desire to snuggle has never left these siblings - we have more pictures of them sleeping head-to-head than we can count.

 Dots - posing for the camera.

 Sleepy Heath Bar.


 Moon Pie.

 Little Twizzler spent a good time 'roaching' today.  Those of you familiar with sighthounds know how they love to sleep on their backs, with legs akimbo.

This is the puppy version of roaching - legs tucked up like a snug little bug in a rug.

 Clark Bar and Squirrel Nut Zipper - snuggling the tiger.  The tiger looks pretty happy about it.

 Peppermint Patty and her empty mash plate.  (Empty courtesy of her mom, Spicy, who thinks puppy mash is the best-food-ever.)

 Rolo & the empty dish.

 Gorgeous brindling coming out on Twix.

JuJubes - starting to show off her dark red color.

Olde Time Candy Litters 1, 2, and 3 Update 06/23/14

As promised...a few new pics of the pups.  Spicy's puppies are beginning to try to walk and are popping eyes open, so no flash pics of them for a while.

Bella & Penelope's kiddo's started trying out hard food today...funny to watch them figure out THAT new puzzle.  And such a relief, as they tend to get their semi-wet puppy food mash on everything...as all good toddlers would.

We're also starting to see some more intense play (growling, play bowing, pouncing...)

 Rolo & (imagine that) Upside-down Spicy

 Twix, Twizzler, Zipper, Clark, JuJubes

Charleston Chew & the yellow bird toy
 Monty can't be bothered with all these puppies.

 Rolo employing the Spicy Hammock while Clark Bar nurses.

 Peppermint Patty close up shot.

 Twizzler, Rolo and Peppermint Patty

 Squirrel Nut Zipper, Twizzler, Peppermint Patty


 Moon Pie doing the patented whippet head-hang

 Those of you familiar with whippets have seen yours do this over the edge of the couch  - or over the edge of anything.


 Penelope snuggling her adopted son, Oh Henry.

 Heath Bar and Gummi Bear - chillin'.

 Chiclets and Charlseton Chew (exhibiting hoarding disorder - a true capitalist).

 More Penelope and Oh Henry snuggles.

 Moon Pie has oozed mostly out of the kennle at this point ...showing he has yet to master the head-hang technique.  Heath and Gummi - still chillin'.

 Clark Bar snuggles an unusually quiet and cooperative litter mate.

 Gummi Bear showing how quickly Whippets develop that quality of elegant dignity.

 JuJu Bees and Peppermint Patty

Cark Bar in the arms of his loving tiger toy.

Twizzler- no bigger than Mom's foot.  

 Peppermint Patty

Can you tell the the real stripes from the toy stripes?  Squirrel Nut Zipper and Twix.


 Moon Pie with brother Oh Henry working hard at crate training.


 Charleston Chew

Awwwwww...Lil' Heath Bar

 Oh Henry

 Chiclets and Dots

 Clark Bar

Charleston Chew and Chiclets

Skittles and Zagnut...fuzzy but worth it.  

Wistful Dots

 Let there be games!  Oh Henry (top), Heath Bar and Skittles.

Zagnut and Moon Pie

 "Tonsils look good, Bro!"

 Dots and Gummi Bear

Dots showing the same attitude as Mom already. 


"I'zza Muggin" says Zagnut.

 All seven of Spicey's crew...and the tiger toy too.
