Even more puppies

I know that this month the blog focus has been all about the puppies.
However, for the people buying pups this is the easiest way to show them all the puppy pictures.
Today's pictures; I tried to focus on a certain group of pups,
so not every pup will be pictured today.
Some group shots.

The pups are for the most part weaned now. They still have mom Lucy to guide them and show them  the way.
Grandma Fena provides some extra help.
The pups are in a 5 acre pasture, they have about 12 ewes for company.
If the weather is bad they still go to the barn.
Getting them to and from the barn is a challenge.
Sarplaninac pups are not like border pups where when you call, they all come running.
No, Sar pups go and explore the compost heap, they expand their territory in all directions, they follow their noses and seem almost deaf to the calls of "puppy puppy".
Sure, they come, but all on their own time.

So, to make the move to the pasture a little quicker,
we have a puppy transporter.

Thank you Roy.

Pink at the end of a yawn, she looks like a killer!!

Poor sheep,
 however, the sheep are teaching the pups some respect when they tend to get a little too rambunctious.

Stand off?

Pups spend a large portion of their time wrestling with one another.

The advantages of growing up is that you can then drink out of the sheep water trough.

Pups 7 weeks

After being away for a week, it was great to return home again.
The pups did not grow  so much in size this past week,
but they sure did grow in wisdom.

They have got wise to when I want to catch them and put  then back in the barn for the night.
they have got wise to how to follow Lucy everywhere,
they have wised up to feeding schedules,
cat avoidance.
They are showing more and more independence.
Every day they walk out to the pasture and spend the day lounging in the grass.
During my "away" week the sheep where all far away on distant pastures, to make the checking easier for Eric.
These areas are not safe for little pups, so the pups only got to hangout around the barn with the chickens, cats and some lambs.
Tomorrow, the ewes get sorted again and the pups get their select ewes back.

I should be doing this right now...

But instead, I was doing this...
and the pups got a deworming,
had their nails trimmed,
and got brand spanking new color collars,
and had their pics taken.

So, this is orange, formerly F7

This is F6 now, green puppy

White paws, formerly known as F2, is now Yellow

Light blue or Baby blue was F1

F3 is looking dorky here, but she really is not a dorky pup.
She is now Brownie, or Brown collar
