Hello there everyone. Just thought I would let you know that the 3 surviving puppies are doing well. They are 4 weeks and 4 days old today. The time has definitely flown by. My household has gotten even more entertaining now that they are walking, playing with each other, and now learning to run. Mishka has lost interest with them now that they are older. But Luna on the other hand still plays with them. They all like to gang up on her. Its rather entertaining to watch. Surprisingly Luna is very gentle with them even though she is a puppy herself. Happy to say that the lighter male corona is going with a friend of mine. So i'm glad to be able to see at least one puppy grow up smile (it was not easy to take these photos as all the puppies were full of energy at the time) I know they are lab mixes but can't tell with what. The little black female has pretty brindling markings on her legs and face.

So here are the updated pics everyone has been waiting for.

Cleo 4 weeks old

Corona 4 weeks old

Ranger 4 weeks old

Way too cute.

You did a great thing and its nice that you can watch one grow up anyway. If you haven't already you should start looking for potential homes for them. Screening people and finding the right homes can take a long time.
Try not to cry too much.hug

Thanks Sabi. They grow up so fast frown I'm also going to make a contract stating if the new owner can no longer keep or take care of the dog, to please return the dog back to me. I plan on doing an extensive interview with potential owners and I'm thinking about doing home checks to make sure the puppies are going to a good home. Any guesses on the breeds they are mixed with. The mother was a Labrador so I know that much

I suck at breed guesses. and right now they are just cute.
I always do home checks, and all the dogs need to come back for rehoming if needed. Anyone who honestly cares about the dogs shouldn't flinch at signing anything like that. I also do follow ups and ask for updates.

OMG! Adorableness at it's finest! cloud 9cloud 9 You really should give yourself kudos for doing a great job. When I placed pups/dogs from my rescue I made sure they understood the line that stated if for ANY reason you must get rid of the dog to return it to me and not give the dog away. Luckily I placed all of the pups/dogs in amazing homes. It's been years since I closed the rescue and I still stay in touch with my forever homes! way to goway to go Thanks for the aww moment of my day! cheercheer

Forgot to add, was too mesmerized by their cuteness, but I totally know what you mean about trying to take wee little puppy pictures. They move about so dang fast, it is hard to catch a cute moment!! snoopy

My fellow dog lover said it best, you end up taking like100 pictures for maybe one that actually shows up decent where they are not zooming about and actually somewhat looking at the camera..big laugh

How rewarding this experience must be for you!! cheer
Puppyhood does fly by, doesn't it...?? smile

Thank you everyone. I would ship ranger to you but that's an awfully long trip for a puppy. Just watching the puppies learning how to run and play with the toys brings a smile to my face. This whole experience has been very rewarding for me.
