6 Weeks

The puppies enjoy playtime at work. They have been coming with me every day this week for socializing but will stay home off and on until they leave for their new homes. I don't want them to get too used to being with someone all day as some will need to stay home alone while their owners work. In the meantime, they enjoy exploring the trainer's office and easily show us how our office is not really puppy proof!

Nap time. A puppy room has been created out of a bathroom that is no longer used.
This litter loves to wrestle and tug more than any of my other litters!

Raksha is sooo cute!

Can Faethe come out and play?
Hathi plays with everyone's favorite stuffed toy. I am not sure why it is so popular but one of the puppies has it every second they are awake.

Alsea will sometimes lower herself to play with the puppies. Usually she hangs out looking cool and lording over the babies.

  1. Carrie, Laura (Pend Oreille Chinooks) referred me to you. She mentioned that you have one male left from Alsea's litter. We are looking for a Chinook puppy. My 11-year-old discovered the breed online & we all agree that it sounds like our ideal breed. Our Malamute, Ben, was with us for 10 years before Ryan was born. After Ben died we wanted a more baby friendly dog when Ryan was born, so we had Golden Retriever brothers, Beau & Teddy. We love the northern breed qualities, but Ben was extreme alpha and would challenge any dog he came across. Since he was a rescue dog (at one year), we don't know if it was a factor of his first year experiences, or a trait of the breed. Anyway, it seems that everything we read about Chinooks indicates that they are friendly with people and other dogs. Besides, they are beautiful dogs & by all claims, are very smart. Can you tell me about your remaining boy? Although January would be a better time for us, if the right puppy came along we are ready at any time.
