14.08.2004 Today the puppies had their
10 week worming, so they also had a weigh in.
This will be the last weigh in here for the 8 that are flying
I thought you might like to see how much they weight now….
(Keep in mind a few squirmed so much on the scale that some
are not completely accurate!!)
From heavy to light… (They are getting to be big kids.)
1 White Anubis 7.4 kilos 16.6 pounds/oz
2 green Killian 7.2 16.0
3 grey Bogie 7.1 15.10
3 orange Sherlock 7.1 15.10
4 yellow Howell 6.9 15.5
5 blue 6.8 15.0
5 black 6.8 15.0
6 pink Pickles 6.7 14.8
7 red Marley 6.4 14.1
8 brown Lita 6.1 13.8
The weather is cooperating on this side with nice moderate
temps. There is even a chance of rain predicted for Monday,
which would be ideal for nice cool temperatures.
They all had their nails ground with the dremel tool today, so
they will be okay for awhile.
Tomorrow will be bathing day. I hope they are still clean when
they arrive. The last vaccination this past Wednesday was a
strong one. It included Lepto, which has made them a bit runny
for the first time ever. I am doing everything I can to clear
it up quick!
But everyone is happy, bouncy and ready to fly.
How I will remember each of the kids going to the US…
Anubis – I affectionately call
him Moose as he has such big feet. He reminds me the most of
his Grandpa Kal-el. Sweet, kind, very mellow and very patient.
Killian – Another joy. Sweet, kind, affectionate,
patient and happy.
Bogie – Lover boy. One of my shadows that is at
my heels all the time. Very affectionate and always wants to
Sherlock – The wild child. Thank goodness his
new owner is a fitness trainer. You will need to be in shape
to keep up with Sherlock. Exhuberant, happy and loving!
Howell – An easy boy. Always willing, patient,
loving and kind.
Pickles – wins the intelligence award, she has
figured out how to climb up anything and get into everything.
Always a shadow, extremely loving and funny.
Marley – Another easy going boy. Very loving,
patient, sweet, happy and kind!
Lita – The sweetest baby in the litter.
Extremely sweet and quiet. Never demanding, always patient. A
