Due to the Corona Virus and its high level of activity in some states, projected by the CDC:
In these perilous times, in order to protect all concerned, We are going to need to employ exceptional measures and have families choose their puppies Online.
We have people coming from various States to pick up their puppies, and want to protect all families and pets from possible exposure to the Corona Virus.
We will feature each puppy with video interaction, with us, and a write up about each puppy. Pictures etc.. once the puppies are 6 weeks old. This will be besides the videos we post weekly.
Each family will choose their puppy from the LULU and RALPHIE Page of our website.
Each puppy will have a different color collar to identify them by.
I will start this process when the puppies are 6th weeks of age.
I will give each family a time/date to choose their puppy by.
This will be in the order of deposit picks.
I will answer questions by phone , or email to help you choose your puppy, during this time if needed.
I will also post info about what is in the puppy folder and other info. etc as well.
When families come to pick their puppy and puppy folder, we will bring your puppy to you when you arrive.
You can post your questions by email or by phone before or after you pick up your puppy.
That being said,
I do plan for families to be able to pick up their puppy on the 20th of September. All puppies should be chosen by then.
This is a highly unusual way for us to have families adopt our puppies and we do apologize.
Please bear with us and help us through this process so that everyone stays safe through this difficult time.

1st TWO WEEKS
Mom nurses her puppies quite frequently at this stage of growth. Still blind and deaf, the puppies can only crawl around the whelping box, seeking warmth from the heating pad or MOM. Their pigment s starting to come in, as you may notice, and they are gaining weight quite rapidly now. Mom is getting lots of chicken, eggs, and beef in her food to keep up with the demand for milk.
TWO WEEKS OLD
This is the puppy food we will be feeding your puppy, Make sure to order your bag in a timely fashion in case deliveries are delayed

I am going to add weekly training clips to help you prepare for your new puppy. These videos are a great training resource that you can find online. Start these trainings as soon as you get your new puppy home.To go along with this one, you can add food/treat to your puppies food dish, while they are eating, to help them learn not to guard their food dish as well.
Three Weeks Old:
At three weeks, we are able to see, hear, walk. Our brains are still developing. We have had our nails clipped, had our first worming and have daily interaction with people other dogs, cats and sounds in the household., and a soundtrack of various sounds, such as city sounds, thunderstorms, children playing etc.

I like this training video:
Your puppies will already be sleeping in crates with their litter mates before they go home.
Also, if you do not feed your puppy after 6:00 at night, your puppy should make it through the night without having to go outside to go the bathroom. Do not let your puppy out of the crate at night unless he is sick or hurt, or soiled the crate, or he will continue to want to go out at night on a regular basis.
While your puppy’s motor skills are still limited at four weeks old, he shows the beginnings of playful behavior through his various human and canine interactions. We help prepare your puppy for socialization as an adult. A common practice among breeders is a method called “tolerance training,” ENS, which is a way of handling the puppy to make him more tolerant of future handling from new people. This training can be especially helpful to prime for your puppy for contact with young children as well as adults. Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) is a process that introduces mild stresses to very young puppies in a controlled way. These stresses help stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup's immune system, cardiovascular system.
A Typical Day
A four-week-old puppy spends most of his time sleeping and eating, but the rest of the time is spent exploring! He can stand up, walk around, wag his tail and test out little puppy barks. He interacts with his littermates and learns about his place in the world as a pup. Your puppy is now being introduced to a puppy slurry to start the weaning process.
5 Week s Old
The puppies themselves are now eating solid food several times a day and gradually being weaned of their dependency on Mom's milk. Puppies will still suckle ravenously when their mother returns and she will now often feed them standing up and only for a short time. They have been introduced to the shaver, and some sounds such as pans banging, crumpling paper and coming when called etc.
