Charlotte & Noble had six puppies on October 1st, 2019.
The history behind Charlotte is that when she was a puppy, she quickly became our niece's favorite dog in the house. She has made it a point to bring her special gifts over the years. She made a request when Charlotte was still a puppy that if she was kept in our breeding program, she would choose the temporary puppy names for Charlotte first litter.
Charlotte & Noble's previous litters turned out so beautifully that we have chosen to repeat it. When we announced that we were repeating the breeding, our niece claimed naming rights on all of Charlotte's litters. She enjoys the process of choosing special temporary names for each puppy.
We chose a 'Fall' theme for this litter.
The boys: Butternut, Acorn, Sage, and Chestnut
The girls: Autumn and Maple
The puppies are one week old. Charlotte is absolutely wonderful with the puppies. She is very calm and relaxed with the puppies. She watches over them and observes us as we handle them, but is completely trusting of us as we assist with the care of the puppies. She remembers the weighing process when we weigh each puppy daily and remove them from the whelping box for a few seconds. She sleeps with them, nestles them, and cleans them with such devotion.
The puppies began the early neurological stimulation "Super Dog" program developed by Dr. Carmen Battaglia.
