Great Dane Puppies- our first litter leaving the nest

The Puppies will soon be off to their new homes.

I will be sad to see these wiggly balls of fur leave the farm. It is so hard to not get attached to them. Babies are the funnest part of daily life. It is the new life Spring brings which makes it my favorite season.

The pups have gained little personalities. They are tugging on each others ears and tails. Charlotte, the largest pup, plunges fearlessly into everything. Minnie, the smallest, holds her own with ferocious baby sister growls. Winston, the nearly solid blue male, sits and watches over the puppy pile. Samson, the blue mantel, is a happy go lucky fellow. PJ, the Merle mantle, is adorable in his spots and might have blue eyes. Gunner loves to sleep on his back with his paws up in the air. Daisy, with her spotted black nose, is the first to be up and knocking over her sister Heidi and her brother Jeremy. Gertie, with her sideways patch running down her nose, is not far behind chewing on whatever tail comes near.

While they grow we are having the joy of watching them gain a quarter pound a day or more. It is amazing how quickly they transform from helpless grunting fuzz balls to wagging-tailed mini versions of mom in such a short five weeks!

It is so adorable to watch them sleep…

And eat…

And play…
