My pups are ten days old and they're starting to get fiesty with each other! This video has their attempt at rough-housing blind and with no teeth - it'll be great entertainment when they can see each other, hopefully later this week! (My human's making the background noise in both of these videos because he was playing with me during filming - obviously he doesn't know what "Quiet on set" means!)
Here the puppies are jostling for the best sleeping position. They're still doing the army-crawl thing (when do they start to walk?!).

Today I went to visit my vet to have a mommy wellness check-up and I got a clean bill of health! While I was gone, Dad was the babysitter! Mosley's human (aka owner) decided to bring the puppies into his room from the puppy hut.
I had all the puppies fed and snuggled into the laundry basket, asleep. They weren't making any noises and Dad was all prepared to watch them, as evidenced by the video.
There was even evidence that they're super cute when they sleep! (This puppy has a spot on its belly!!) BUT...
...when I came home, this is what I found!! Mosley decided he would give the puppies a treat for being so good for him, and you know what? - the treats had sugar in them! My babies were mosh pitting and wrestling when I got home!
Let's just say Mosley's in the doghouse for now!

PICTURE OF THE DAY: Look at my sweet little one who just wants to be the little spoon! One day, it'll be a big dog and go off on it's own, sniff... Oh, let's get back to my observations of the day and let the tears come later.
All my puppies have short, stubby noses that don't have any hair on them! As they get older, their noses will grow into good, strong, furry noses, just like Mosley on the right (what a handsome man!). And the markings on their faces will get bigger and might even change colors!
I get up for one minute to take a quick walk and bathroom break and what do you know? My puppies cry for me until I return! Watch them stay in the same place as I left them (I bet that won't last for long once their eyes open) and make cute noises.

This is a look inside my "puppy hut" too: the side are lined with carpet to help insulate from the cold and there's wood chips on the ground to keep the cold cement off of us. I've got a couple of blankets I use as a boundary around my favorite corner and a big fluffy dog bed that I don't really know what to do with yet.
I feel how much lighter I am today without all these puppies in me! What a relief - I was having a hard time moving anywhere without being somewhat clumsy! I'm not too concerned about losing the puppy weight, but I'll let you know if that changes!

I'd like to introduce you to my new seven puppies! I went into labor last night at about 10:00pm and finished around 3:30am. I was really tired after that and so was my owner (although he didn't do much, so I don't know why he's complaining!). I think I did a pretty good job as a first time mom taking care of them as they came.
Turns out I have four red and white puppies (just like their daddy!), two black and white ones, and one gray one. I wonder what happened to having any white ones, like me? Hmmmm....
Anyways, enough with the blogging. I'm tired so I'm gonna go nap and keep my puppies warm and fed!

This is my husband, Mosley, and me (my name is Skye). We often like to snuggle like this, under our owners' feet in the kitchen. We're very excited because we're expecting puppies soon! (I chose to use this picture first because I still look flatteringly skinny!) I'm the white Siberian Husky (purebred and certified by APRI) and Mosley is the red and white Siberian Husky (purebred and certified by APRI).
Here's what I look like now.... Super pregnant. Man, I'm just ready to have these puppies. Last night, I paced up and down the room and whined so I think they're coming soon. My owner and Mosley's owner have built me a "puppy hut" that's partially enclosed yet also has an open area. I hope it will help keep me warm in this Missouri winter while I birth, nurse, and raise my puppies!
