Unhappy Fight!!

I can't deal with this. I walked in on them just in time...managed to get it on video. I'll be calling the behaviorist in the morning.

Your thoughts ?

Oh geez LP! Sure looks like you got a SERIOUS problem happening there!

It's time for time outs in the hugs and kisses corner!

Goodness LP - what in the heavens are you going to do about this very unruly detructive behaviour?

Is this the litter from the 11 year old shih tsu? If so, how is momma doing?

I don't . Seriously, they do sleep a lot so then I get to clean up, do tonnes of laundry, take Cuddles out every 2-3 hours when she's not sleeping, and then play with our guys too. Other than that it's a daily cuddlefest here .

As a matter of fact, those two have been amazing the last several weeks ! Even dh has commented how calm and relaxed they all are as well as responding to us 100% of the time .

They were 4 weeks old yesterday. It's funny now but I'm wondering if I'll be laughing or like this when the teeth come in. Both Cuddles and the father are Shih Tzus. You'll find the adoption application at the Rescue's website .

She's doing great! She's putting on weight (getting a little chunky actually) and is the the epitome of "lap dog" . She's such a happy girl! After weaning and once she's recovered fully, she'll be going in for her spay and some serious dental work. Her lower canines look much better so I hope they can be spared .

I don't notice how fast they're growing until I look at pics from earlier on. Hercules is almost 8x his birth weight .

Other than going out for potty breaks and a quick run around to see if she can say hi to dh or the boys, she wants to be in the pen with the puppies. There's a divider where she can get away from them when she wants. The only time she's not directly with them now is if I'm in there. Then she just wants to lay next to me or on my lap for some lovings .

Here's a collage I put together of pics I took yesterday. You'll notice Cuddles sits up to feed her pups so that they all have room.

Vertically, 1st row: Suziecakes, Lil' Laurie (right before she pounced on Hercules ), and Hercules.

2nd row: Cuddles nursing, Checkers on Marbles, Checkers.

3rd row: Suziecakes, Wee Murphy, Marbles.

4th row: Checkers peeing , and Cuddles being ever so patient nursing until the pups all fall asleep one by one.

Oh, I don't know about that...she's awfully smitten with dh. When she sees him, she turns into a little vibrating wiggle bum . I'm already interviewing applicants...I want time to slow down a bit .

At first glance I panicked at the title of your thread...then I noticed happy faces in replies AND then I checked the video...lol
Too flippin' cute! My heart goes out to lil mama tho, how sad for her at her age to have to go thru that. The saving grace is she and her gorgeous babies are with you.

Me too,I thought Penny and Lucky were fighting and I did not want to see that video,but,phew,it was the little ones

I get a little jealous,I would love to plunk myself down in their enclosure and just get attacked by puppy-breath and mommy-breath too

Lp i had no doubt it wasn't Lucky and Penny or someone would have phoned me.. As for the french chic assessing them,,check her pockets before she leaves and take a head count.

I wish you guys all lived closer, it would be great to come visit and help socialize these little guys. As it is right now, I've got to make some local friends fast . T.pettet, if you're only an hour away, you're more than welcome to come over but, you leave empty handed .

I just finished trimming all the fur over and between their front toes and clipped 120 nails. It only took me 2 hours . Tomorrow it's butt fur trimming time .

SIL, you'll be happy to know that the change pad you gave me last summer is Cuddles' favorite thing to sleep on when she's not next to the pups. Thank you so much!

I'm going to have to video more play fighting soon...they started growling today .

It's hilarious !
