Safari Litter 5 week old Individual shots.. plus 2 days

Good Evening,
I know you are wondering what happened yesterday. I went to upload a video… and since it was a similar one – puppy rampaging part two to the last one and it some how managed to be exactly the same length… Youtube called it a duplicate and that was the end of that.

Since the pups are full of energy it takes 3 people to do the photos. As a result I have to wait until I have help. Thanks to two lovely ladies I had some today. We are also sporting new big puppy collars.

A reminder of who is whom:
Luna- big goofy zebra
Emma- crocodile
Charis- big goofy giraffe
Parker- floppy lion
Gunner- hippo
Leonardo- Rhino
Marvin- goofy giraffe
Charlie- elephant
Flynn- old lion
Obi Wan “Ben”- Marty the zebra

some of the puppies sat right up others…. enjoy!

Egads, Kennel hoppers…

Kennel hopping is a nasty practice. It is as the name suggests. People go from kennel to kennel to look at puppies. Sometimes spreading Parvo as they go.

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness. The virus attacks rapidly dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely affecting the intestinal tract. Parvovirus also attacks the white blood cells, and when young animals are infected, the virus can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problem
What Are the General Symptoms of Parvovirus?

The general symptoms of parvovirus are lethargy, severe vomiting, loss of appetite and bloody, foul-smelling diarrhea that can lead to life-threatening dehydration.
How Is Parvovirus Transmitted?

Parvovirus is extremely contagious and can be transmitted by any person, animal or object that comes in contact with an infected dog’s feces. Highly resistant, the virus can live in the environment for months, and may survive on inanimate objects such as food bowls, shoes, clothes, carpet and floors. It is common for an unvaccinated dog to contract parvovirus from the streets, especially in urban areas where there are many dogs.

I have heard of whole litters wiped out due to this practice.

Yesterday I had a family call midday saying something like the spouse had to work can they reschedule for later. I had a room full of people playing with the puppies so I didn’t pay attention to the klaxon’s going off in my head.
Not only were they late, they reasked simple questions I had already gone over with them over the phone. They seemed almost disinterested in the puppies. The normal excitement wasn’t there. I was too tired to read the signals at that moment. Then they were ready to leave… and was told I will call you in the morning. I chimed in and said ” I don’t hold puppies without a deposit”. Now, I KNOW I had discussed the deposit with them…

6:30am I bolt out of bed and realize I had kennel hoppers! Thank goodness I had them take off their shoes. I will steam mop the hallway later on prior to visits today.

Most ” I will be backs ” or ” I will call you with our answers” never do so. They were ‘shopping’ for a puppy.

Kennel hopping is an insult to the breeder- we open our homes/kennels ( both for me )to you, allot time to spend with you and you use our time like it is worthless. Not to mention you could potentially kill off my litter.

Now, If I am wrong about this family I am sorry. But…. what are the odds?

these are the lives put in jeopardy when Kennel hoppers visit….

Ok, here we go… enjoy!

We got to go outside! Charlie has a visit! Safari Litter

Hello folks,
I am now posting photos in the evening. I have more time in the evening to edit photos now the puppies are bigger. Today they discovered washcloths are fun to play with. Mr Leonardo discovered the teaser ball and carried it around! I was amazed considering how heavy that toy is. Enjoy!
