Puppy Wellness check up

Life has been very busy and I missed a couple of blog days. It seems that there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done as planned.

The puppies went for their wellness checkup last evening. All checked out just fine and were very healthy babies. The two snake bite victims were completely over their ordeal. Our vets take a lot of time with the puppies and carefully examine each and every one. They were amazed at their size with all weighing between 12 and 14.5 lbs. Definitely these puppies love to eat!

Several of my breeder friends are coming this evening to do the puppy grading with me. We will individually stack each puppy, watch them move on the ground and assess retrieving ability and other aspects of temperament. Robin Moody (Castlewood Labradors) will be taking one of the boys back to Virginia with her. I hope to have some updated photos of the babies after the puppy grading.
