Socializing the Puppies



SP Kennel dogs are great sled dogs because they love to run, love to pull and love their mushers. The best way to raise these puppies is to love them back. Eleven puppies is a lot to love, so we do the best we can to share the wealth! Here are some photos from the last few days at SP Kennel.

Sooooooooooo cute!!!!

They love to run!!!

And they take instruction - the Magnificent Eleven took off after you and some were definitely gaining!

Thank you for sharing this experience with us!

I was anxiously awaiting updated puppy pics. They are all so darn cute. Sure wish we could help socialize them. And the video of Aliy running with the pups...precious!

I think this will always be the "clone" litter for me; My imaginings see a cluster of faun colored dogs moving in waves, responding to one shared thought, one shared focus. I did recognize daisy right off the bat, but that is probably because she reminds me of Lydia at that age.

I *think* I see Nomex facing the camera on Linda's left, Daisy by her feet, Tinder on her right thigh, Hotshot on her chest and Spark on her thigh facing camera - maybe?

Sigh ..

What a great video & pictures. Already they are following directions. Eleven make walking in a straight line difficult. Tinder is so cute!!

Sammy & Tinder photo = cutest! Thanks for sharing the pupdate. You have your hands full with these future superstars. Nice to see a photo of Allen on the DogLog too - he tends to shy from the spotlight...
