We are 4 weeks!

It almost looks like the whelping box has shrunk! Here is Addie with just the girls!

Today was the puppies first day outside and also the first time they have all been together since shortly after they were born. There was much crying( screaming) as at first the  puppies did not like the" great outdoors" ! They quickly exhausted themselves and enjoyed snoozing together.

We are 3 weeks

With such a large litter - there are 3 sittings. The two smalllest have a private session with Addie as Keifer looks on.  The rest of the puppies are divided into 2 groups .The girls nurse with Mom while the boys are bottlefed and begin play/ eating their "smoothies" and then 2 hours later we switch!

The Exhausting life of a Puppy

When you are 2 weeks old just eating is enough to totally exhaust you! Here one of the little girls demonstrates what true puppy fatique looks like!

10 days old

Here are some of the boys resting after a strenuous session of bottle feeding! The girls and boys are rotated every 3 hours now- while one group is bottle fed - the other group is with Addie. It is hectic to say the least!Relief is in sight- in another 10 days the Baby Bergers will begin to feed themselves with an occasional top up from Mom and the bottle!

Perfect Stranger Vom Welland ( Balki) Feb 20, 2009 - Sept 7. 2011

I am heartbroken to announce the  sudden passing of our beloved Balki.
Balki was the kindest boy- he touched so many lives in his capacity of a Therapy dog. He worked at the Grimsby library, inner city Hamilton schools and visited many nursing homes. He was a true ambassador for the breed and I will miss him terribly. Balki I will see you at the Rainbow Bridge my dear, sweet boy.
