Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 06/28/10 07:27 PM



We have 4 puppies again!

Her first due date is July 2nd. That's 59 days from the first breeding - exactly when she popped last time.

This is a repeat of the breeding that gave us Spike. smile

So we ended up with 4 boys. Sigh. I really wanted a girl.

The last boy is a Powder Puff - either black or a dark chocolate/brown. Won't really know until he's 100% dried off. smile

Mom and boys are doing well - so I'm happy. smile

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/04/10 03:59 PM

Well, no surprise puppies this morning but that's ok. smile

It got a little too warm in the whelping room/office last night so I don't think we'll be using the heat lamp anymore.

I've cooled down the room and moved the box and camera (better view). Kaynya is more comfortable and the babies are nursing and napping.

I'll take pictures today and post them. smile

Just checked in on momma and the little sausages. She's sleeping and they're nursing wub OMG if he's a powder puff and chocolate brown I won't be able to resist wub

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/06/10 12:06 AM

We just had a scare. We were sitting on the couch watching tv and I hear this wet cough come from the whelping box. Not sure what I heard I tune out the tv and concentrate on the box - and I hear it again.

Pup #1 sounded VERY wet (breathing). I call the vet and rush over there to find out ... he's fine. No wet sounds in his chest, checked for cleft palate (nope) and they checked in his mouth and it looked fine.

He's going to be trouble - I just KNOW it!

Now I just have to get my heart rate back down to below 200!!!

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/06/10 12:51 AM

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/06/10 02:13 AM

Other than over eating (which leads to some loose stools and Kaynya giving me that "I'm sure as **** not gonna lick THAT" look that means I have to wash his cutie-patootie) - he's doing great!!

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 03:27 AM

He's NOT mine. You know I have to always have a favorite every litter that is posted. Last CC litter was the brown girl. This one is puff boy. Only fitting that Mauser was the Poofinator and I loved him best out of his litter.

Don't go startin' no rumors now Barb poke rofl

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 03:34 AM

Truly, you have a very cool vet to call to check on Pup #1! I'm curious to see how Puff Boy's coat color changes. He's a cutie!
Posted By: Sage's mom

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 04:27 AM

wub these boys!

Lauri, thank you again for sharing this with us. You really know your stuff!

Happy to hear pup #1 is doing fine, how is pup #3? sorry I forgot, what pup was the one you had to shake down?

Do the boys have names? Right now I know them as pup #1, Pup #2, Pup #3 and Jen's puff boy.
Posted By: Lauri & the Gang

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 03:37 PM

Everyone is doing great. Pups #1 & 2 lost some weight over the first two days (I think because the room got too hot at night) but have gained that back and a bit more. Pup #3 is doing fine - gained 1.75 ounces since birth.

The Moose (#4) has gained almost 3 ounces since birth!! That almost 37% of his birth weight!!

They are very mobile already AND vocal!! When they are hungry the whole house knows! smile

No names yet - I like to allow the owners to name them. I will ask that they use my kennel name - Piqiun's. A piquin is a small but VERY hot pepper. That's what I thought of when we first got Kaynya - small but spicy! smile

I'd also like to have the new owners keep with my theme - something to do with spices or heat.

Kaynya is Chimane's Spice It Up Piquin and Spike is Piquin's Some Like It Hot. If there had been a bitch in this litter that I wanted to keep she would have been Piquin's Red Hot Chile Peppers with a call name Pepper.

IF I keep the puff (and that's a big IF), I'll need a male name.
Posted By: GraciesMommy

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 06:04 PM

Aiden (my favorite male Gaelic name) - "little fire"

Hadyn - Welsh form of Aiden

Keegan - "tiny little fire"

Tyson - "fiery tempered"

Then I found on wiki "Bird's Eye Chili Pepper" and they had it translated into various languages.....one translation loosely meant "moose droppings" rofl

Piquin's Bird's Eye Chili Pepper....and call him Moose smile
Posted By: LukesMom

Re: We Have CONTRACTIONS!!! - 07/07/10 06:31 PM

I think you should keep him. Registered name could be Piquin's Too Hot to Handle, and call him Scorch or Sizzle.

They are all so cute especially when they have their little wrinkles going on. Although I think pup #2 (?) was not napping. He looked milk drunk. lol.

Pryo's coat is gorgeous. If you don keep him (although can't imagine why you wouldn't want to. lol) whoever his new owner will be needs to have a clause added on his contract. You must receive weekly updates with photos included (a minimum of 3 per week) and a video monthly.... that is all.

Now back to your regularly scheduled Swooning! wub wub wub

Re: Non-GSD: Crested Puppies!! - 07/09/10 08:03 PM

The pups have had 2 official 'outings' already! The first was on Monday, 7/5, right after the 4th of July parade (which goes down our street). I brought the pups out so the neighbor kids could see them. No-one got to hold them but me but they heard lots of new voices and were touched alot. smile

Today I took 2 out at a time to meet with people here lure coursing. Adults got to hold them, kids got to pet them and the dogs got to sniff them (with very close supervision).

Yes!! They will be just over 4 weeks old! I'm not going to let them in with all the dogs but I'll have a separate area for them so people can play with them. smile

D'awww I love Pyro's coloring. I really think he's seal. I'm not sure if that's a common (or accepted) color for Cresties. But that's exactly what it looks like to me. smile

They're all so cute!

Day 14 Weights:

Pup #1: 16.38 oz
Pup #2: 16.00 oz
Pup #3: 16.75 oz
Pup #4: 19.25 oz

I just compared their weights to the first litters. They ranged from 17.63 (Spike) to 16.50 (Esme). So other than the Moose, AKA Pyro, they are right on target!

Pyro's eyes are starting to open. The other pups should open there's in the next day or two.

I'll get some new pictures today - taking them outside on the grass for the first time!! smile

Ok, individual pups ...

Pup #1








Pup #2










Pup #3








Pup #4 (aka Pyro)



It's hard to tell but here he's trying to eat/nurse the grass!










Pryo is the adventurous type. Put the pups in a pile and he's off exploring!

We aren't sure yet. I have to do some research on Sables in Cresteds and see if I can find photos of examples - both as pups and adults.

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/18/10 01:06 AM

Came home from the dog show today and DH was watching tv with the gang. I had the sire's owner with to see the pups and we walk into the office/whelping room to find a pile of puppies ... OUTSIDE the box!!

What the ... ??

At 2 weeks old they have figured out how to climb over the first rail. It's about 3.5" tall.

Heck, they aren't even up on their legs completely yet and they managed to get out!!

I believe Pyro is to blame. I was watching and he was almost completely walking around, not the swimming puppy crawl that they do. I was amazed. I hope you're keeping him - for other than my selfish reasons - because he seems to be full of life and personality!!

All the puppies are adorable, but wow...... Pyro is amazing... Are you keeping any from this litter Lauri?
Posted By: Lauri & the Gang

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/19/10 03:19 AM

I'm REALLY tempted to keep Pyro but if the right home came along I'd let him go. smile

I really want another bitch. My plans are to get Kaynya in the show ring once she's back in form and then do another breeding next year. I don't know if I'd go back to the same stud but finding a raw fed, minimally vaccinated Crested with outstanding temperament and good health is NOT easy!

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/19/10 10:06 PM

Pups went in for dew claw removal today. I totally spaced on getting done earlier. My vet normally does it between 5-7 days of age. I prefer to wait a little longer with the Crested pups - usually about 10 days.

They are officially 17 days today. They came through it like troopers - with just a bit of crying during the actually cutting.

The down side to the visit - we encountered a dog with Parvo! ARGH!!!! Why didn't they tell the staff the dog had Parvo when they signed in?? Why did they let the dog just walk all OVER the place??

I had Winnie with me to get her butt squeezed and she walked right where the Parvo dog had been laying.

The vet did the pups first, then Winnie. Once she was done he washed her paws with Parvocide. She rode in the front seat and the pups rode in the back. When I got home I took off my shoes and left them in the car. I had DH bring the Clorox wipes outside and I wiped down my hands and Winnie's feet again.

The pups never touched the ground so they were ok.

Now they are all nursing happily and don't even remember what happened to them. smile
Posted By: elisabeth

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/19/10 10:27 PM

Wow.. that must have been scary!

Good to hear the pups were little troopers and Winnie was such a good girl.

The staff should have made you aware of that and put the dog with Parvo somewhere out of the way, especially don't let it walk around the floors where everyone is going in and out!

Hopefully all is well!

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/19/10 11:04 PM

AW MAN.....how rude!!!! Any dog or cat that comes in coughing/sneezing/nasal discharge is put into a room immediately - carried if possible - or asked politely to wait in the car. People like that really burn my toast!!!!

Hope everyone's ok!!!!

Me thinks it's time for more pictures (yesterday was too long ago!!!!!).

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/19/10 11:07 PM

Re: Non-GSD: Chinese Crested litter - 07/20/10 01:10 AM

The pup (it was an older pup) was walking around out in the parking lot. I'm guessing they told the owner to wait outside with the dog but failed to tell them to keep the dog in the car.

7-24 Pupdates ... Pups play outside - 07/24/10 10:57 PM

It was beautiful outside so I took the whole pack out for pictures and playtime.

This was just before we went outside:



Pyro cuddling with his Monkey:




Ok, outside we go!! Here's Mom. You can see how she's keeping a very close eye on the pups (not!):




Winnie stops by to check them out:



Blaze:




Mauser wants the pups to play ball with him:




Winnie wants to know how SHE got stuck with puppysitting duty:




Pyro's colors are changing:






Can't tell if that's Blaze (the one with the white stripe on the head) or Smoke (the all black one):




I call this series of photos 'The Mother Is Done':










Here's Smoke going for the kill:




Smoke and Flash:




Blaze says "I wuv you, Momma":




Pyro yawn:




Flash - falling asleep between my shoes:






Maybe this position would be more comfortable?




Sasha checking out Flash:




Mauser says ... "Hmmmmm"

7-25 Pupdates ... Pups meet people and pooches! - 07/26/10 01:53 AM

Today we hosted a birthday lure coursing party for Simon the Iggie (Italian Greyhound). His owners have been bringing Simon, Brodie, Sophie (all Iggies) and Caina (mix) to our lure coursing place for several years.

I brought the pups outside and let two young boys puppysit. They were passed around from person to person and got to sit in the x-pen and listen to a dozen or more dogs barking like crazy (waiting their turn to chase the bunny).

It was GREAT socialization for them!!!

Re: 7-28 Pupdates ... More outside time - 07/29/10 02:27 AM

I am unfamiliar with the breed. You are talking about shaving them...could you explain a little about that...the reasoning behind it ...where you shave...etc just curious. And do you always shave them their whole lives then?
Posted By: Lauri & the Gang

Re: 7-28 Pupdates ... More outside time - 07/29/10 05:24 PM

The breed comes in two coat types - Hairless and Powder Puff.

The PP (Powder Puff) has an undercoat. They are usually shaved on the face and sometimes ears:






The Hairless are supposed to have hair only in certain spots - the feet, the tail and the crest (around the neck and head).

But - there are different degrees of hairlessness. smile

A TRUE hairless is a dog that truly only grows hair in those places. That usually means they have very little hair - like this one:




A HAIRY Hairless is one that grows almost as much hair as a PP but has no undercoat. In order to show them you need to shave the areas where there should NOT be hair.

Kaynya is a Very Hairy Hairless. This is her with about 5 months of hair growth (and after chewing off alot of her tail hair):



This is Kaynya when she is cleaned up (and has more tail hair):




Spike is almost a True Hairless. He grows just a bit of extra hair along his back bone and up his legs.

This is Spike pre-grooming:





And post grooming:






Cresteds are the only breed where the hairless gene is dominant.

The downside of the hairless gene is it include the gene for improper dentition. You've probably seen or heard of the Ulgiest Dog contest. The past several years winners have all been Hairless Cresteds, at an advanced age, with bad or lots of missing teeth:



Without proper dental care the few teeth that they may have will fall out at a young age and then the jaw bone starts to recede and the tongue is always hanging out.

Hairless Cresteds can also suffer from skin issues. I believe much of that comes from lack of good nutrition as well as genetics.


So, back to my pups. Here's the four of them together at about 2 weeks of age. From left to right it's Pyro (PP), Blaze (HH - Hairy Hairless), Smoke (HH or possible Very HH) and Flash (likje Spike - almost a True Hairless):

I am pretty sure I am getting vibes from Smoke that he wants to move to Ohio.

I am usually not a begger, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know when I can come and pick him up.

He would enjoy living with Skye, Buddy, Sam cattailwag (and me.)

I am sure you are having a hard time finding a home for him, right? grin

Re: 7-28 Pupdates ... More outside time - 07/31/10 12:10 AM

Well, right now there IS one pup available. smile Don't know exactly which one yet as the stud dog owner gets first pick.

I had all pups spoken for plus one on a waiting list. I've had 3 people back out and my waiting list person is not 100% sure now so I might actually have TWO pups available!

9/8 Pupdate - bitework??? - 08/09/10 04:38 PM

Ok, someone injected some GSD genes into these guys!! I'm sitting at my computer, catching up on e-stuff and the boys are tugging on my pants!! Maybe not up to working line standards but more than I would expect from a Crested!! smile

I replaced the whelping box with an x-pen and blocked off the underside of the dresser. The pups were NOT happy. But now they are actively exploring more of the porch/office and starting to wander into the other areas of the house.

I bought puppy pads to get them started on housetraining. My goal is to have just one or two pads in their pen and have them use those to go - instead of anywhere in the pen.

I will be putting the webcam back up today.

They will be getting out and about more this week. Tomorrow is a trip to my breeders house to see her and the stud dog owner. We'll probably go visit the vet today - depends on the weather and how busy they are.

From the left it's Kaynya, Spike (in the back), Violet (Spike's Lady Love), Martini (4 month old pup) and Lexi (Spike's litter sister).

I got this picture of Spike and Violet, caught in the act on the couch:




After we came home the pups decided to romp and play. First they started with Cloe:




But quickly decided Cloe was too rough for them so Pyro tried Tazer:




Tazer said "Go away, kid - you bother me." so Pyro tried Sasha (please ignore the dirty carpet):




But she became a little too rough also. All the pups finally decided on Uncle Mauser!!












Pyro and Smoke liked to wrestle with each other:

Mauser is a teddybear! I saw a lady walking two cresteds today, they were both different in coloration and adorable.

8/15 Puppies in the pool - 08/15/10 11:14 PM

Here's a short video of the pups second time in the pool (the first time I didn't have the camera ready):

They are so cute but didn't look thrilled with the pool. I like how they figured out how to escape.

Re: 8/15 Puppies in the pool - 08/15/10 11:56 PM

Ya should have warned me that Pyro was going to face plant out of the pool. That's the darned funniest thing I've seen in a long time rofl

8/19 CC Pupdate - 08/19/10 11:21 PM

Just came back in from mowing the back field. I had everyone out - including the pups. They were a little freaked when I started the riding mower but soon were totally ignoring it. smile

I took a long board and set it on top of a ball for them to play on - they LOVED it!! I also took out an old tire and laid that on the ground for them. They had fun climbing and jumping in and out of it!!

I had the pool filled up all the way so they got their first taste of actual swimming. I want to know that even with it filled they can swim and find the edge and climb out - which they did. Then they ran around trying to dry off! smile

They also did stairs for the first time. All 4 were able to go down the stairs (some took more coaxing than others) and Pyro and Blaze were able to climb up the stairs with no problem. The other two weren't ready to try UP.

Next week I am taking them to meet up with the stud dog owner at a dog training center near her. The conformation class instructor is also a judge and she is going to evaluate them for us.

I know, I know - I'm BAAAAD!! I've been so busy with the pups lately I haven't had a chance to pupdate! The webcam if off because the only time they are in the pen is at night, and I want the light off now. smile

I PROMISE to get some pictures up today!!

8/31 CC Puppies VIDEOS!! - 09/01/10 04:18 AM

Ok, I'm off by one day ... but it was worth the wait!!

The pups went to the dog park for the first time today. The park has a big and little dog area and they had the little dog area to themselves for the most part.

Here you can see how excited they are to be out and about!!




Just when I'm trying to get Kaynya on the long line (so we can walk to the river) the pups decide to get frisky!




This is the pups first time at the river. They weren't thrilled but they DID go in the water readily (well, most of them did). Kaynya wears the long line because she will try to bolt after a squirrel or chipmunk if she sees them.





After we get home I take the pups out to the kiddie pool to rinse them off - they were very sandy and dirty! Here I am, trying to get the pups to follow me into the house but they are NOT cooperating!




More pictures to come!!!

And pictures!!!

The day before I took them for their evaluation and ear taping. I shaved everyone's ears in preparation.


Pyro looking adorable:




Flash looking thoughtful:




Pyro and Blaze attacking each other:




Teething - nothing is safe!!




Aren't we just freakin' cute!!!







And the day OF the ear tapings ...

Pyro says "Tell me the truth"



"Do these foam pieces make my ears look fat??"




Puppies need to learn not to disrespect their elders!!

"Nya!"



"Nya NYA!!"



"NEENER NEENER!!!"



"Yo, GRAMPS!! Talk to the PAW, Man!!"



Squish!!

Wow, are they ever adorable. I didn't realize their ears didn't stand on their own. I missed that part from the last litter, I guess.

Are they naturally swimming dogs?

What type of Chinese Crested is Pyro considered to be?

Some of them have no problems with their ears going up. Pyro and Smoke have very big ears and heavy ear leather so they might have had problems. Since I had to do theirs anyway I decided to do everyone, just to be sure. Of course the taping lasted less than 24 hours on everyone but Smoke! smile

They don't 'naturally' take to the water, really - but Kaynya LOVES to swim and Spike is learning to like it. I'll bring Spike (and maybe the puppies) down to lake Michigan either today or tomorrow - depends on the weather.

He is a Powder Puff - like this:



Some people prefer to shave the face as well as the ears:




I prefer the clean face look. The other way they look more like a Terrier! smile

Re: 8/31 CC Puppies Pictures - 09/01/10 08:09 PM

More questions from a know-nothing (me!):

1. Does a Powder Puff just happen? Apparently there was a long-haired in the mix somewhere?

2. Do you leave the long hair (other than face and ears) or do they get shaved like the others?

I think Pyro is "aces", but he does look different, and if you wouldn't have posted the second picture, I wouldn't have guessed he was a CC.
Posted By: Lauri & the Gang

Re: 8/31 CC Puppies Pictures - 09/01/10 08:35 PM

The hairless gene is the dominant gene in Cresteds (which is the opposite from all the other hairless breeds).

If you WANT a Powder Puff (PP) you MUST breed a PP to a PP.

The PPs only carry the H gene (Hair). The Hairless carry the HL gene (Hairless smile ).

If you breed an HL to a PP you could get all PPs, all HLs or a mix.

If you breed an HL to an HL you could get all HL or a mix (I don't think you would every get all PPs but I guess it's a chance).


As for grooming, for showing the PPs are shown in full coat. You can shave the face and ears or leave them furry. I prefer the clean look. smile

If you are not showing them you can trim them almost any way you want!

People who don't know about the breed are always taken aback when I tell them the 4 boys ARE from the same litter! smile

Re: 8/31 CC Puppies Pictures - 09/01/10 10:06 PM

Thanks, Lauri, for not making it obvious how little I know!

I'm sure glad I don't have to decide which one to pick because that would definitely be a hard, if not impossible, choice. I think I tend to lean toward the hairless ones simply because that sets them apart, but then again, I love the frou-frou look of a show poodle, so ya gotta love the hair too...

Re: 8/31 CC Puppies Pictures - 09/01/10 10:51 PM

They are just ridiculously cute!! wub The videos made me laugh out loud, especially when they were zooming around in the yard. Don't know which one it was, but one of them looked like a little llama. Wow, I'd have a hard time picking, but Pyro is just so unique. But they are all adorable. Okay, just keep all four and that solves it!! wink

That is what I was thinking! That Pyro looks like he isn't even related! They are adorable, always love your pics and vids.

9/6 CC Pupdate - 09/07/10 12:26 AM

Pyro left yesterday. frown He is going to a friend. She owns, breeds, trials and shows Newfies. She also feeds raw and does only Rabies vax! smile

I talked to her today and while Pyro was a bit overwhelmed by all the HUUUUUGE black heads trying to sniff him yesterday he's doing better today. Except when one of her 2 yr old Newf's tried to playbow at him - scared the CRAP out of him! smile

We will be co-owning him and showing him in conformation IF he turns out ok and his heart is fine.

I took the pups to my vet for a pupcheck. All 4 pups knees were good. All but Pyro had good hearts.

Pyro has a skipping heartbeat. While most dogs hearts go ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, - Pyro's went ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump ..... ta-dump, ta-dump (and so on).

Doc listened for a couple minutes and said that his heartbeat leveled out after a bit and was fine. He will go back for a recheck in a couple weeks to see if it was just the excitement of being at the vet or something more serious.


Flash is leaving tomorrow. He is going with the stud dog owner. She may have a show home for him, she's waiting to hear back.

That leaves me with Blaze (who's bite is off a bit - further confirming his status as a pet puppy) and Smoke (who is growing more and more on me).

I will be sure to get pictures of Pyro with his new herd o'Newfies and share them with everyone. He may just become the first Chinese Crested with a Water Dog title!! smile

Re: 9/6 CC Pupdate - 09/07/10 01:28 AM

aww...the CC babies are leaving frown

Hope Pyro's heart turns out to be ok!
Look forward to pics of him with his jumbo black herd o'newfie's!

Good Luck to Flash in his new home!

I know a home will come along for Blaze!

You did a great job with them Lauri! smile

Maybe Smoke will become an addition to your pack?! wink

Re: 9/6 CC Pupdate - 09/07/10 01:50 AM

Since I can't add any more to my household, I hope Smoke stays with you. thumbup

Then I will get updates on the beautiful boy!

I hope pyro is Ok - hopefully just overly excited or something.

Have the puppies noticed their brother left home for adventures with newfies?

Not really. I am switching them to a crate instead of the x-pen ... just to make more room in my office again! smile

Re: 9/6 CC Pupdate - 09/08/10 02:35 PM

Oh no!!! Poor Pyro!!!! hugging I hope he's ok. See, there's why we couldn't take him - one dog with medical issues is enough!! (although her IBD is back under control!!!!).

Do heart issues run in crested?

Re: 9/6 CC Pupdate - 10/05/10 09:14 PM

Any word on Pyro's heart hiccup? Any new pictures to share?
