Doodles Visit Santa Claus in Seattle!

20 Dec

Santa

We took the girls to see Santa yesterday! It was challenging to get everyone still and looking in the direction of the camera but it was fun.

JLo is in his left hand; she was 14 weeks yesterday and barely fit in her size small Santa suit. Apple is in his right hand. Beyonce and Shakira are sittingĀ  on the ground. I never thought I’d be bringing the dogs to sit on Santa’s lap but I love this picture and I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last time!

First Weigh-In

17 Dec

We don’t usually weigh puppies for the first 24 hours because there is so much to adjust to so here are their weights on day 2:

  • Purple Girl: 8.6 ounces
  • Red Girl: 8.5 ounces
  • Blue Boy: 9.5 ounces
  • Orange Boy: 9.5 ounces
  • Green Boy: 9.0 ounces

I know you can’t see most of their faces but I will post a lot of pictures as times goes on! Right now they are doing a lot of sleeping. You can also check us out on instagram – search for PupsByTaylor

Final Days of Pregnancy for Beyonce

11 Dec

a2I hope that by this time next week Beyonce will have her mini goldendoodle puppies! She is still a happy girl but I can tell this extra weight is getting old and it is harder for her to jump up on our bed or the couch for cuddles so I’m coming down to the floor more and more. Beyonce’s heat cycle started on Oct 10th (9 weeks ago) and her first date with Gizmo was on Oct 17th. I took her for X-rays on December 3rd and Dr Raja said he saw at least 5 puppies however since we had the appointment a little early (Dr Raja’s wife is about to have a baby and he’ll be out) he said there is a possibility of more than 5. Here are the X-rays as well as her on the couch this morning showing her belly. I think she might just be 21 pounds now which is really big considering she is normally 15. I think the side view, 1st X-ray is easier to count – look for the head and spine. How many do you see?!
