The Oscar Winners are here!

 On February 24, 2012 Genny whelped 5 puppies during the Academy Awards so we named each of her puppies after the Oscar Winners.  The crew was born between 10:40 pm and 12:50 am.  The crew in birth order are Best Actor Winner Daniel Day Lewis ("Daniel"), Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence ("Jennifer"), Best Supporting Actress Anne Hathaway ("Anne"). Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz ("Christoph") and Best Picture Argo ("Argo.)


We had a bit of a rough week.  We lost little Anne at day 3 to a bowel obstruction.  We did everything we could do to save her but she is now in heaven hopefully making some little boy or girl very happy.  The rest of the litter is doing extraordinarily well.  All of the puppies doubled their weight in the first week and are happy, fat and very content.  They are tolerating their early neurological stimulation well.  Christoph continues to be the biggest puppy, followed by Argo, Daniel and then little Jennifer.  Isn't Jennifer going to be spoiled as the only girl!

Daniel was first to leave at 10 weeks.   He flew all the way to Atlanta along with Theo from the Aidan x Ally litter.  My friend Jen flew to Pittsburgh from Washington state when the puppies were 8 weeks to help me evaluate them and she brought Queets from litter who was also going to a breeder in Altanta and the breeder was coming to Pittsburgh to pick up both boys when Daniel turns 10 weeks.  So we had a busy two weeks with an extra puppy here and since he is about a month older than the Oscar winners they learned lots of interesting things from him (barking and shredding pee pads!)   It was very hard letting Daniel go since he reminded us so much of Genny.  Jennifer left next after her first shots at 12 weeks. She is staying close by in Gibsonia so we hope we get to see her often.  Christoph left next at 12 1/2 weeks and he is living close by also in the south hills of Pittsburgh.   Argo is last to leave and will be leaving at 14 weeks.
