Razzie, a 9 year old Jack Russell Terrier, Australian Cattle Dog mix came to us with her 6 babies on June 26, 2018.  The puppies were between 3-4 weeks old, and already starting to eat out of a bowl.  They actually came in on the same transport as our last foster dog, Janey.  I saw them the day I picked her up. Then on the day I took Janey back to the shelter to catch her next ride, they were still there.  No one was able to foster them.  So I brought them home 3 days later.  

Razzie’s Puppies: 4 weeks old

They’re so sweet at this age, just starting to have their ears, and personalities come in.  

Razzie’s Puppies: 5 weeks old

We try not to play favorites, and I try to get as many pictures of each puppy as possible, but some just stay stiller than others.  During playtime Tiny Teddy likes to be cuddled, while most of his siblings race around like crazy. 

Razzie’s Puppies: 6 weeks old

Just as they were about 6 weeks old, the other puppies started to bully Emilee, until she had to move out of the playpen for her safety. She got to participate in their play time, as much as she wanted to.  But she preferred to guard her tiny crate most of the time.

They’ve definitely gotten their own personalities. 

Teddy loves to cuddle, chew on toes, and put everything in his mouth, including the walls. 

Rylan is our wild child, always flying around the house.  She stops for some cuddles once in a while, or to hang out with her sick sister, Emilee. 

Talon is Mr. Independent, preferring to do his own thing, or chasing Rylan around the house. He can most often be found under the couch, his secret lair, apparently. 

Belle is more laid back, she’ll chase or wrestle with Rylan and Talon, but she also likes to get hugs and love.  When picked up she puts her paws on each side of our necks for hugs.  

Bessie is our silly girl.  She likes to chew on the bones and stuffies.  She also likes to play with her siblings, until they get too wild.  

Emilee was our bossy girl.  When she wanted something, she wanted it yesterday.  Her little temper tantrums will always be legendary in our house.  She even stamped her little feet. But she was also going down hill, so we indulged her.  By this time, during play time she was almost always hiding in her crate, with the door shut, or being held by one of her humans. 

Razzie’s Puppies: 8 weeks old

On Monday, July 30, 2018 our sweet baby Emilee earned her wings.  Her condition had deteriorated to the point of near constant seizures, with little naps in between.  We had to make the heartbreaking decision to let her go, and end her suffering. 

Razzie’s Puppies: 9 weeks old

They’re growing up so fast. Rylan is either slowing down, or trying to comfort us, she wants to be held more and more.  She’s also still bullying her siblings.  She loves to drag Belle around by the tail, and she pulled out poor Teddy’s eyebrow whiskers, leaving him with a little scab on his head.  

Razzie’s Puppies: 10 weeks old

Outdoor play times are harder to photograph.  Two people with five puppies, we’re outnumbered and much slower. So I only occasionally get a clear photo. 

We still have our babies for another few weeks, so we’ll try to keep you update on their progress.  Soon they’ll be getting their spay and neuter surgeries, and then their forever homes.
