Such sweet little babies. Eyes newly open and rubbery legs that get them slowly to their destinations. Some are attempting to play with each other but mostly they still spend the majority of time sleeping and nursing!

Millicent’s four bright eyed puppies are 4 days older than Millicent’s eleven sleepy puppies.

Busy month at Berkshire Hills!

October is always a busy month here at Berkshire Hills.

It really got going when we held our annual puppy reunion! The air was crisp, the leaves were bursting with colors of golden yellow, crimson and orange, the cider donuts and coffee were plentiful and people brought an abundance of home baked goods!

The best part though was seeing so many of my families and their furry babies now all grown up. And as usual dogs, children and adults all mingled, played and made new friends and revisited old ones. Even litter mates found each other!

Cadence’s chunky little monkeys

These are some of Cadence’s most solid puppies yet. I just love their round blocky heads and robust bodies. They are going to be some pretty gorgeous mediums!

“100 People by 12 Weeks”
“Most important of all is to expose the pups to as wide a variety of people as possible—people of differing ages, sizes, skin color, and dress.”  According to AKC.

It is actually quite easy to meet this many people when you have an adorable puppy by your side!

Our puppies leave here at 9 weeks so that gives you, according to this, 3 weeks for your puppy to meet this many people.  Fortunately our puppies leave here having met about 40-50 new people!

 

Just as important is to have your puppy go to many new places.  Lately 4 month old Celeste (an Eleanor puppy) and I have been hanging out at cafes, my new summer office!
