Current News From Dala Farm

Christmas is just around the corner!
Our poodles are thriving:)
 
Kaeira is her usual happy self and is in excellent health!
Tucker visited for Thanksgiving, it's so much fun to watch them together. They are obviously a mated pair. They have a strong bond of friendship.
 
Here are a few cute pictures of Tucker in our backyard.

 

 
 

 
 
Kaeira is much harder to photograph well because she is black. I will am trying to get some good new pictures of her. Here are Tucker, Kaeira and Sadie.
 
 
 
We do have a few pictures that our friends have sent us of her puppies from past litters:)
 
 
This is Kiwi. She is tiny...only about 4 pounds!
 

Kiwi again:)


Sally is a mini size. She is from last year's litter. She is so pretty!
 

Darma liked Katy so much that she came back a year later for a little brother, Danny, who is topping the scales at a whopping 4 pounds. Katy is the size of Kaeira.

5 WEEKS OLD ON EASTER SUNDAY!

EASTER WEEKEND, WE MET OUR FAMILIES!
We had our first haircuts, and our first baths...all in preparation for meeting our new families!
It was an exciting weekend and turned out great for all of us:)
I really like this warm water, it's so relaxing.
 

Darma chose me and named me Danny. I'm going to live with her and my big sister, Katy, on Whidbey Island. I am so lucky! 
 
Kenzie was told she could pick out a puppy and she picked me!!! Yay!!
I have a name now too...it's SALLY:) I'm sure we will have so much fun as we grow up together.
 
 
Melissa came to visit us next and fell in love with me!!!!!!!
My name is Rinin (otherwise known as Rin!) I'm going to see her often for the next 4 weeks because she lives in Ellensburg. She's a painter, how cool is that?
 
 
The cute little guy behind Sally doesn't have a name yet because he is a surprise present for a wonderful lady named Ann, in Auburn. He feels pretty special!
 
We all will go to our new homes on Mother's Day Weekend:)
In the meantime, Marcia and Maynard will play with us and feed us. We'll get to go out in the backyard and explore on sunny, warm days, and just grow cuter and cuter by the minute.
It was a great weekend!
 
We have a really cute video that I am trying to upload. You can see it, and many more pictures on our Facebook page (Dala Farm Poodles), so please check it out!

WOW! WE ARE 3 WEEKS OLD !!!

WE ARE GROWING SO FAST!
WE ARE TESTING OUR WALKING SKILLS (AND FALLING OVER SKILLS:)
We make lots of noises (even a few barks) and are beginning to play with each other.
Our eyes and ears are both open now, but things are still a bit blurry.
Here are the pictures of our most recent photo shoot! We hope you like them.
 
Marcia is trying to make us wake up:)
 
OK, it worked! Hi everybody!
 
 

"Hey you guys...I can sit up!!"
said the black male. 
 

Pig pile!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Over I go!!

In case you were wondering, I am the girl!!
 
Oh, my head is so heavy. I'm the biggest and it's such hard work, this walking around.

Black puppies are really hard to photograph, but this one's not bad. I just don't remember whether it's the boy or the girl! Sorry:)

Marcia's knee is like a mountain!

 
This is a really good picture of one of the black puppies!


"Psss, What do you think we should do now?"
 

These pictures have been sort of fun!
 
I gotta go find Mom. She must be around here somewhere!
 
That's all for today! We hope you enjoyed our new pictures. We'll see you again next weekend!
Y'all come back now, ya hear?

2 WEEKS OLD!

WE ARE GROWING LIKE WEEDS!!

It's been 2 weeks and we have all doubled our birth weights:)
We are now officially "scooters"!
The other big news is we are opening our eyes!

Our latest pictures were taken this morning. 


Wow,this light is bright!! I am the biggest puppy now, by 1/10 of an ounce:)


Mommy got a haircut & boy, she sure smells good now!
We're hungry again.


I'm almost as big as my brother!!


This fuzzy blanket is awesome for a little rest. Scooting is such hard work. I sure would like to start walking.


Apricot and black male (I think).



This is pretty good picture of our little family!
It's our first time out of the playpen except to get on the scale.


See how much bigger I am than my little brother?
He's cool though, I still like him.


The male (on left) is just a tiny bit smaller than his sister.

You've no idea how hard it was for Marcia and Maynard to get us all lined up like this and our sister still blew it!!


THANKS FOR VISITING WITH US TODAY!

As you can see, we are a really healthy, content little little family.
Come back soon and watch us as we grow. The changes will be coming rapidly now as we gain coordination and strength. Pretty soon we'll be playing in the backyard!

As ever, your poodle connection in Ellensburg, Washington,
MARCIA AND MAYNARD LARSON

MORE PICTURES

Here is Kaeira and more baby pictures!
 
 
 
 
It was a really long night and she is exhausted. But, she is a wonderful mother and is very diligent about taking care of her babies. For the next few weeks, their home base is the playpen in the living room by the window. That way she still feels  part of the action and the puppies get lots of attention.
 
Speaking of puppies...here are a couple of group shots less than 12 hours old.
 



 


 
 
We realize it looks like all we do is sleep! That's because it is all we do (when we're not nursing...)

We'll be back soon and show you how cute we look with our new and improved short tails:)
