We are three weeks old today!

 Greetings from the puppies!
We are more alert and playing together. We now walk to a separate area from sleeping to go potty. Even though it is still early, some of us are coming over with our tails wagging to be pet. Mom and Dad can see small glimpses of those of us that are adventurous and others that are more laid back although we are all exploring! We love it when Daisey and Frankie peek their heads into our space. Frankie introduced us to our first toy, so we are now very fascinated with them! We also licked some puppy food broth for the first time today. Pretty soon we will be having LOADS of fun and playing up a storm which is such a joy!

Lots of Love,
The puppies

Videos at 2 weeks old!

Greetings from the puppies!
In this video, we are showing early signs of playfulness. We also like to chew on each other.
You can also hear mommy Sandy bark in the background, her cue that she needs to go outside to go potty.
We double in size, the first two weeks, then our growth slows down a little.
We will be between 4.5 and 6 lbs at 8-9 weeks.
As of 7/25/11 we weigh as follows:
Apricot Female, 2.5 lbs
Apricot Female, 2.25 lbs
Light Apricot/Golden Male, 2 lbs
Light Apricot/Golden Male, 1.75 lbs
Cream/Golden Male, 1.7 lbs

It's dinner time for the puppies! One of us is trying to find an available spot!
Our human mom, Trina turned off the camera and helped me find one!

In the video above, Sandy completes mommy duty and then lies down next to the whelping box to take her own nap. At the very end of the video, you can hear one of the pups dreaming.

This video is entitled: "Awwwwww, mom!" as Sandy wakes us up and does doggie duty.

This video shows the process of us forming a puppy pile, before we konk out!

Sleeping is one of our favorite things to do. On this cloudy day in Seattle, we hope  you get some extra rest too! We know we will!

Love, the puppies.

We are 2 weeks old today!

The 3 Amigos!

 Greetings from Sandy! Now that their eyes are open, the pups are starting to move around more, even though they have always been able to scoot and toddle. The puppies look around for me as soon as they wake up so they can be the first to get a snack! As the puppies grow, they will start to move to another side of the whelping box to go potty. They will also squat on their own and no longer need the licking assistance that I provide. In the meantime, I do my job and I do it well. I love my pups!
Mom will be posting videos of my cute little darlings later!

Love, Sandy

Cute Picture

 These were taken on Tues., July 19th.  In the second photo, you can see the slit of the middle puppy's eye which shows the early beginnings of their eyes as they open.

F1b Miniatures are 1 week old today!

Greetings from Sandy,
I am starting to relax and get more sleep which makes Mom and Dad feel better. They also try and give me more privacy during the first week. However, I am always relaxed when the puppies fight over a nipple or when they make disgruntled noises as I lick them so that they can poo and potty. I love being a doodle and I love my doodle pups!

We are 1 week old, today!

In the video above is a picture of an apricot male displaying the noises we make when we "lose" mama or when we smell her as she comes into the whelping box.

We are one week old, today! We love to eat and sleep and eat some more. We already went to the vet on Wednesday and got our dew claws removed. By next Sunday, our eyes will be open! Our three males weigh approximately 1.1 pounds. The wavy apricot female weighs 1.7 pounds and the curly apricot female weighs 1.5 pounds.
Our mom, Sandy, has been very protective of us this week. However, for the first time since giving birth to us, we heard her run outside and chase a squirrel today!

Love, the puppies

Sandy at 6 or 7 months


We will most likely range in coat color between Sandy (apricot/golden) and her son, Boone (red), pictured above. It is possible for one of us to be more like our dad, Frankie, cream with apricot tipping. Frankie's sister is red.

F1b Miniature Puppies, Born, July 10, 2011 between 3:00 and 7:30 AM

Greetings from Sandy and the crew,
It was a long night for all of us, yet with great reward, 5 gorgeous puppies! Mom and Dad were my "doulas" and made sure I had cold water frequently, and then some fruit, spinach and eggs towards the end for my final stretch.
I am very protective of the pups, now that they are born and will remain that way for one to two weeks. There are 3 boys and 2 girls. Two of the puppies came out with a darker coat/apricot. One of the puppies has a light apricot coat. Two of the puppies are cream (with apricot tipping). In the pictures the puppies pretty much look the same and won't distinguish themselves until approx. 2 or 3 weeks.

The puppies mostly sleep and eat and make little noises. I will create a flip video later so you can hear them. The great adventure has begin once again and will continue when a puppy arrives in your home.

Love, Sandy

Greetings from the puppies!
We enjoy eating a lot, sleeping and crying as we blindly find Sandy's milk.
When we were first born, we fought for the best spot in the house which is sleeping near mom's bum since that reminds us of where we came from (4th photo). The second favorite spot is underneath mom's chin although watch out, she may lick, flip and clean you! We look very tiny, yet we grow very fast!
We look forward to meeting you later,

The Mini Goldendoodle Pups

P.S. We will provide updates with photos and sometimes video on Sundays!
