4 Day Old Pictures

Hi everyone! Well we finally got more pictures in some warm sunshine. We have also come up with this litter’s names.

We fully expect our families to change the puppies’ names, should they so choose.

We do not make an effort to use the names directly with the puppies so that they do not become accustomed to the specific name. They are collectively called “puppies” and singularly called “puppy” for encouraging come here commands, etc. But giving names seems so much more personal than calling them by their pattern, color, or the color collar they have on. And we have fun making the names up.

My daughters had the dubious honor of picking this litter’s theme for names. They decided that since we named Peanut after a nut we should give the other puppies ‘nut’ names. And so we have.

 

Our Girls

Shea is our black and white female. The shea nut is famous for the amazing skin smoothing properties the butter provides.

Cocoa is our little phantom female with the pink colored collar. Cocoa gives us cocoa butter, coco, chocolate and more.

Pistachio is our little blue merle sweetie. Who can forget this delicious green treat?

Praline is our sable & blue merle puppy with a red colored collar. American pralines are sweet candied pecans made with butter and cream.

 

Our Boys

Mongongo is our big blue merle boy with a blue colored collar. A mongongo nut is a highly nutritious and reportedly delicious nut from Africa and the word just made me smile.

Filbert is our little blue merle boy with a green colored collar. A filbert is a type of hazelnut and is a delicious traditional Christmas food when roasted.

Kola is our dark merle boy with a cream colored collar. The kola nut is well known because (much like coffee) it contains caffeine. It was therefore used traditionally in medicinal tonics and for the strong, biting flavor it used to impart in the original Kola flavored soft-drinks.

Marzipan is our sable male with phantom markings. He is growing into his gorgeous copper-sable coat and the sweet, creamy almond confection named marzipan seemed to fit him perfectly.

  1. Hi Annette, The puppies are beautiful! I’m so happy for you. I wish I had some good news about Stevie, but I don’t . Her behavior is not getting any better and I’m at my wit’s end. I’ve read puppy books, watched training tips on You Tube, tried all their suggestions, and I’m still struggling to find a solution. This certainly is not what I had envisioned. She bites at the blinds when you open them to leave her out. Then she bites the leash when you attach it. The reason why you have to take her out on a leash is because she puts everything in her mouth and eats it. Grass, dirt, moss, sticks, there’s nothing she doesn’t go after. She loves to go outside and wants you to take her out at least 20 or 30 times a day, and if you don’t take her, she’ll pee on the floor. She bites at your pants legs and shoes, mouths your hands really hard, jumps up at the tables, chews on the furniture, and just keeps coming back again and again, no matter what you try. This goes on from morning till night; thank God she takes long naps. I know she’s just a puppy, but she’s exhausting. It’s hard to reconcile her behavior with her appearance. She’s such a beautiful little girl with the face of an angel. She’s very smart, and has always slept through the night without having to go out. She was trained to let you know when she has to go out in 1 day. She sits, brings back her toys when you throw them, doesn’t have a problem with her crate or exercise pen, and doesn’t destroy her toys. I’ve tried everything I know how to do. I’m sure you’ve heard of the Bach Flower Remedies. There’s another company called Equilite who is supposed to be one step above them. They have a remedy called Devil Be Gone which is supposed to be for difficult cases, so I sent for that. I’ve only given it to her for 3 days now, but so far, no change in her behavior. This was my last hope. At one point last week, if Jan hadn’t have been in the hospital, I would have packed her up and taken her back and told Jan to find her another home. For me to even have such thoughts, well, you must know how bad the situation is. I know she’s only a puppy, just 10 weeks old on Wed., but I’m thinking this isn’t just normal puppy behavior. I love the little fur ball so much, and it breaks my heart having to deal with all her issues and all my emotions. She’s very attached to me, which makes it even harder. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Linda If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I know she’s only a puppy, but

    • I would just like to note to everyone that Stevie is not an Eden Orchards’ puppy.
      Pampered-I will email you with lots of training tips and suggestions. 😦 Have you contacted Stevie’s breeder regarding her issues? I will definitely email you. *Hugs!!*
