The cost last year was $182 for the flight; no clue whether this has gone up since then. It is a very easy process and not hard on the puppies.

Just saying it to the air... doo doo doo...
well... Those are pretty do-able prices. Especially if they are free. Wouldn't it be fun if the pups went to 'mothering' homes?

I would love for them to have 'mothering' homes. I would know for sure that way they were being treated well. I have never tried sending anything on a plane before not even myself but I am always looking to try new things

I dont anticipate that there will be any trouble at all with me finding homes for them around here since small dogs are really popular and I think they will make good looking dogs since both their mom and dad are appealing.

Puppies are doing great. All are gaining well some more than others one little porker is already up to nearly 14oz and the rest are not far behind.

The largest of the 2 females will growl and bark at you when you pick her up She has done this since she was a few days old. It is so precious I cant help but : when she does it. I am going to have to get it on video. She will also try to scratch with her back leg if you rub her ear

I was purposefully staying out of this thread for a reason. NO MORE PUPPIES. But dang, are they tempting. LOL

I am maxed out, though I do know of several go-to-grounders who are always looking for doxie/russells if you get stuck needing good homes. *I* would love a doxie russell, and yeah, shipping isn't that hard. Although I did fly to Texas to pick up Jersey (who was brought there by here breeder to a meetup we had planned, so she didn't fly alone), it's not hard at all. I've shipped Kali to and from Canada several times unaccompanied.

I also see a lot of little legs in there. Jill herself looks very Puddin English/Irish Russellish (as opposed to the AKC Parson Russell). They tend to come from a lot English and Irish lines, so they're usually dubbed as Irish or English Russells. The JRTCA standard could apply, but when their length supersedes their height, it's a whole different kettle of fish. And then with the doxie. Oh boy. I love me some shortie russells!

Do any of them have any white?

Only white on the chest and 1 or 2 have white on the toes. That is how I am telling them apart now were the white is and how it is shaped. Before I was : trying to keep up.

Nail polish on their toe nails works well too. Either different colours, or just different toes.

Puppies are doing great. Still no eyes open. I think their ears are opening up on a few.

Here are their weights

At Birth & 11 days old
5.6oz = 14.6oz
5.6oz = 14.1oz
5.6oz = 1p 1.8oz
5.6oz = 13.4oz
5.6oz = 13.4oz
5.6oz = 1p 0.8oz
3.6oz = 12.9oz

& here are some more pictures
Solid Brown
Black tummy
1 Brown & 1 Black
Awwww
Jill Her ears stand up straight like that when she is excited. No clue what the puppies ears will look like.

I am in East Tn. I am putting up some close ups here in a minute

Here are some adorable close ups and you can see the true color (pretty close anyway) to what they look like IRL. Oh and you can see their faces really well.

Brown boy 1 This guy is the darkest
Brown boy 2 This one is the second darkest
Brown boy 3 This one has little wrinkles on his front legs & his color reminds me of a squirrel only tan not grey.
Black & Brown girl This big girl has barked and growled since she was a few days old She was actually growling at me as I took the pics. :

Oh no. I really really wished I hadn't looked at those pictures. Our whole family was ooohing and ahhhing. I think the girls are in love. Miss A (who is 7 months) was laughing and cooing at the pups.
I wish we were closer (we're in Va). We would adopt one in a heartbeat, and I don't say that lightly.

They are precious I cant wait till they open their eyes. I would love it if you were closer to.


Question I just made a discovery that has me scratching my head.

2 of the brown males have rear dew claws. 1 of the brown ones has 1 dew claw and 1 nubbin, no nail at all and just a little stick thing. None of the black and brown have rear dew claws : does that mean they have different fathers or just a variation of the genes?
post #97 of 531
I was talking to dh and he was trying to figure out if we could somehow still get one here. I wonder how far you are?
When you have a pup fly, is it best to have someone fly also? Or is that not really needed?
I wish dh had to go out that way for business soon.

From what I have been told they do just fine alone on the plane. Farther up the thread thekimbles was talking about flying dogs/puppies. I think she knows a lot about it. I honestly dont but I would be willing to learn if it was needed.
post #99 of 531
so what is the best age to fly a pup, and when will they be ready to go?
post #100 of 531
A litter of pups can all have the same father and still have have mixed dew claws. I personally had them removed as pups (the rear ones). The kind of terrain we run in is rugged, and a torn dew claw bleeds like CRAZY out in the bush. Jersey's breeder had her front ones removed while the tails were being done, and it's honestly kind of nice not to worry about them.

And for flying, the pup has to be 8 weeks of age as a minimum.
