View Full Version : My new puppy just born!!!!!

1st March 2007, 01:10 AM
Well after a while my puppy has just been born!!!!

I got a email from the breeder this afternoon telling me that the mom had its litter of two today!!

Here is a quick picture that she sent really quick, but she will be sending better ones later! Now comes the really hard part....picking one of the two!!!!
I got first choice on this litter but to be honest Im just glad that everything went alright with the birth. I had originally really wanted a blenheim but to be honest as I look at the galleries here on this site I realize that the tri is just as good looking! Well hopefully I will get more pictures to post!


Ok I must be an idiot but I cant seem to post the pic can someone show me how or send me to the correct page that tells me how? Thanks!

Aww congrats How exciting Now the countdown really begins! Im not sure why your picture didnt come out well but Im not really html savy myself ;) I hope the time passes quickly for you and I might be partial icon_whistling but I think tris are beautiful!

Congratulations! You will have such fun choosing which one you want, I bet they are both adorable!


1st March 2007, 01:44 AM

Another tri lover here! Welcome to the dark side...lol

Congrats...how awesome! They look so adorable!!

1st March 2007, 03:00 AM

They are both beautiful....how to choose!!?? :)

1st March 2007, 03:18 AM
here are pics of the newborn pups by themselves

here is the male pup

and here is the female pup

My friends and I all agree that they look like gerbils right now but Im sure they will grow up to very cute!!! Enjoy the pics!

Hmm the pics do not seem to be working, I followed the instructions on posting a picture how come its not working??

1st March 2007, 03:37 AM
You are so lucky that your breeder is updating you like that. Mine did, but it made the wait so much harder. I got a weekly picture and it made me want her even more! Congrats! I bet you are so happy! Soon the breeder will be able to tell you their personalities and that will might make the decision easier for you... Why don't you take them both? icon_nwunsure

1st March 2007, 04:01 AM
believe me the idea crossed my mind to take both! But I dont think the roomates Im living with right now be very happy with that cause we already have another small poodle/maltese mix in the house. Ive also read that its not a good idea to take 2 puppies from a liter cause they only bond with each other and no one else, I dont know if thats true or not but I will definently get the 1 pup first and then once I feel I can take care of another in comes ithe second one!

Ooooh, that is so exciting! "Our" pup is about 5 weeks now ... it was so exciting when the litter was born. Congrats to you and you can always comisserate with me if you need to vent about the long wait! :roll:

1st March 2007, 04:36 AM
Welcome and congrats!

Our puppy choose us. Kodee went straight to my husbands arms (each family member was holding one puppy) and long after the rest were back together she continued quite content to stay in his arms.

You might want to think about the dog already in the house in terms of whether you should have a girl/boy mix. Post a bit more on your roommates dog - many experienced owners and breeders here might give you things to think about regarding mixing the two (sorry, I am not knowledgable there).

1st March 2007, 05:39 AM
O believe me I am already counting down the days before I can get the puppy! Luckily I am out of the country right now at a wedding and wont be back for a month so at least that will keep me occupied for a little bit. The best part is the breeder lives a little less than an hours drive from me so I can at elast go visit the puppy and stuff before I pick it up.

As for the other dog in our house it is a maltese/poddle mix named Sugar about 1 year old. It was a rescue dog but honestly its great. We havent really had any problems with it at all. It was potty trained and sprayed and is just great. Like a CKCS she was very attention needy always wanting to sleep on our beds and jump on the lazy boy with us when we are relaxing.

The only thing I know is that it is deathly afraid of belts and the snapping noise that belts make. We are assuming that its previous owner or someone had abused the dog by hitting it with a belt. i mean we drop a belt on the ground and it will FREAK out and turn all submissive. But we pat it and like 2 seconds later its okay again.

Umm other than that its great. Its friendly with other puppies we had our friend bring over his bulldog and sugar just wanted to smell it and play with it but the bulldog just wandered around the house pooping on our floor!!! It literally pooped like 3 times within 10 minutes luckily it was hardwood floors so it was a easy but nasty cleanup.

But I am pretty confident that the two will get along and if possible we are aybe thinking of bringing sugar to see the puppy beforehand. I dunno if that is wise or not but it is a thought we had.

1st March 2007, 06:33 AM
also a little off topic but how do you post photos Im pretty sure Im doing it right but its not working?!?!?!?!odd you are doing it right. I dont see a difference in your coding in the first post where your photo shows and the one with the 2 puppies. PM a moderator perhaps for help.

1st March 2007, 07:29 AM
Oh congratulations!!!! they are gorgeous!!!! i dont know why the pics arent working? u seem 2 be doing everything right....but i looked at them through the website and both male and female are adorable!!

I can imagine how excited you must be!! did you orginally have a preference for either the male or female? or just whichever pup you clicked best with?

They are loverly now comes the hard bit choseing and the waiting it will seem long than 8/10 weeks ----Aileen and the gang (Jazzie---Barney---Sam)

1st March 2007, 10:19 AM
I had originally wanted a blenheim female (doesnt everyone), but since the litter had 2 tri color ones I am extremely torn. I had initally leaned towards the male tri cause he has that much larger white blaze on his head, but now Im drawn towards the female tri haha. I know I wont be able to ever make up my mind!!! SO wel will see.

Im actually out of the country right now now for my cousins wedding so i havent seen the pups in person but believe me the thought of flying back for a day to see the puppies crossed my mind but I think everyone would think I was crazy if I flew around the world to see my pups and spent $2500 dollars in the process for a plane ticket..........so I hav to wait and see. I wont be back in the states till they are aobut 4-5 weeks old which is perfect cause thats right about when they are crawling and doing their thing

1st March 2007, 11:15 AM

Our first pup was a female Blenheim...and I was sure that I wanted another Blenheim when we decided to get her a sibling, but hubby thought the tri would be nice. We got a tri boy and to be honest, he is just sooooooooooo handsome, and I do think a prettier dog than our blenheim. (shhhhhhh don't tell Molly I said that!) Others have said the same thing (in a kind way).

I think what is most important is the Cav's wonderful loving personality...once you get to know and love your pup, color / look won't matter a bit.

How nice it is for your breeder to share this great photo with you!!!!

1st March 2007, 11:52 AM
wonderful news! the next few months will seem to drag now!!!

1st March 2007, 11:57 AM
I feel all broody again now - why is it that Cavalier pups can make me feel like this but human babies never did? :roll: :lol:

Battie4, delighted to hear your good news and I'm really excited for you. As for posting photos - despite repeated attempts to do so including following the instructions to the letter, I still can't do it :(

When you work it out let me know! :)

Congrats on the upcoming addition to your home. They really are beautiful looking pups!

I think it's just as well that you are away for a time and here's why I say that. At this age (and I hate to sound cold) there's not much you can tell about the pups except color; they really are not much more than lumps that eat and sleep. VERY cute lumps! Do everything you can to hold off making your pick until they are 4 or 5 weeks old. By then they will be moving around and starting to develop some personality.

I really think it's great you live close to your breeder. I would encourage you to visit your puppy as often as you can. I really do believe it helps your puppy adjust to your home when you bring it home. That's why we encourage our puppy people to come visit as often as tehy can, although we draw the line at them moving into the guest bedroom :lol:

Again, congrats! The time will pass quicker than you think.

1st March 2007, 01:55 PM
They both look like keepers to me! Tough choice, but congrats on the birth! :flwr:

1st March 2007, 04:00 PM
I had originally wanted a blenheim female (doesnt everyone
Nope, not true, they were my last choice (no offense, we all have preferences, but in the end, really I wanted a cav and would have taken any colour).

1st March 2007, 04:03 PM
bruce h yeah that is what I figured that I wouldnt be able to decide anything more than if I decided now which one I wanted if I were to see them in person, by the way that picture you have as your avatar is awesome!!!

I'm trying to figure out your picture problem, bear with me, I'm a little technically challenged! When you go to photobucket, click on the data in the IMG Code box, copy it and past it here. I'm not sure what's going on.

1st March 2007, 04:26 PM
Awww, they are so cute, hard decision, but nice one.

2nd March 2007, 03:58 AM
cathyt- Im pretty sure thats exactly what I was doing. I dunno it could just be my bad luck I guess

3rd March 2007, 03:11 AM
Congratulations on the new puppies. Both are just adorable!!

3rd March 2007, 09:52 AM

Wow, I played around with the image URLs for awhile, and actually got them to work!! I will explain what I did at the bottom of this post...

here is the male pup
and here is the female pup

and here is the female pup

I changed the 'i86' in the URL above to 'img', then I deleted the '?t=1172718692.jpg' and it worked! icon_nwunsure Hmmm, I don't know why, though!

CUTE puppies!! :)

What a pair of cuties, whatever one you pick you will be happy cause Cavi's are just the best :D

4th March 2007, 04:39 AM
k thanks for fixing the link it sounds complicated but hopefully I can get them to work in the future!

4th March 2007, 04:42 AM
Awww ... they are so cute and look soooo tiny!
Regardless of which one you choose you are going to have a blast watching them both grow up the next few weeks!!

4th March 2007, 02:30 PM
How exciting!!!! I love both!!!!

Let us know your decision!!! congrats!!!!

Do you have names??

:flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

4th March 2007, 04:37 PM
They are both adorable, but personally I would go for the little bitch. I have a soft spot for tris that have a very narrow or non existent white blaze. :D :D
Do as Bruce says though and wait a few weeks before making up your mind.

5th March 2007, 10:36 AM
Well ive decided on which puppy I want. Wella ctually someone else I know wanted the male tri so I let them have it so I will gladly take the female tri! As for name Im pretty sure Imma name it waffles haha silly name I know but I had a hamster named pancakes once so I thought Id start the breakfast food trend again! I always tell my friends eventually Im going to get 2 more dauschands and name them sausage and bacon then its full breakfast!

5th March 2007, 10:43 AM
so here is the newest member of my household

Waffles!!! :D :D

the female tri

On a side note my first actually posted picture where I got the link to work!!!!!

6th March 2007, 03:52 AM
Congrats! At least you have your choice of a boy or girl. I think any cavalier is beautiful. I am sure you will be happy with the tri.
