The Daisy Poppy puppies are seven weeks old and impossible to get pictures of! So this is a short roundup of babies and destinations.

Milo – Staying here (yay!). Tri with very ashy points, long coated (like you couldn’t tell!)

Handsome George (now Winston): Local pet home. Tri with beautiful tan points, short coated.

Bianca: Going to be a Cali girl, which is good because she’s a beach princess if ever I met one. Black and white (tri with brindle points), coated.

Ramona: Going to Texas to be an agility star. Dark brindle, question mark on coat (I think she’s genetically short but is going to be glamorous, but she’s got some matte coat on her sides that may turn into longer furnishings).

Ramona again, practicing being aerodynamic.

Despereaux, now Henry: Wonderful local home. Black and white, coated (and wavy!).

Corduroy: Going to be a little girl’s best friend. Dark brindle, puffy right now but not excessive, and after getting longish it’s settling back down now – question mark on coat.

Harold: Sticking around for a couple of months because his family is house-hunting, so you’ll get to see updates for a while yet. Wonderful local family. Either extremely dark brindle or black and white, short-coated.

Hugo: Wonderful local family home. Brown brindle, short coated.

Monster. Great local home, but he gets to stick around another couple of weeks while his family has other obligations so you’ll get to see him a bit more. Red brindle, short coated.

So if you’ve been keeping track, that’s 4 definite short-coated, 3 definite long-coated, 2 question marks; 4 tris, 4 brindles, 1 Harold (seriously, I have looked him over in the sunlight about a dozen times and I can’t see a real red stripe anywhere, so beats me – as I told his owners, he’s always going to look black and white, whatever he turns out to be). Two babies leaving the nest and seven staying close. And nine amazingly wonderful people-oriented puppies of gorgeousness.

    Oh that Milo is absolutely edible delicousness on a stick! He is soooo gorgeous it’s no wonder you could resist. If you ever grow tired I’ll take him.

    *sigh* I just want to keep seeing pictures of them… every time I see Irie, or Magnum, or any of the other dogs from previous litters pop up on Facebook my heart does a little joyful dance. I have a slight extra twinkle in my eye for Corduroy this time around so I’m rooting for his lucky little girl to be his bestest friend ever 😉

    Look at Corduroy’s ears! Are any of the other puppies popping ears up now?

    I have really enjoyed following this litter’s progress. It’s been awesome watching them change from week to week. All of them are gorgeous/handsome and I’m looking forward to watching them progress through the rest of puppyhood into fantastic Cardi adults.

      Corduroy and Handsome George/Winston have ears up now and almost all of them are working on the bases. BUT – this may not be the real thing. Cardigan puppy ears tend to rise and fall with the whims of fate and with the heaviness of their ear leather. Ears have growth spurts in the same way that every other part of them does, and I wouldn’t be shocked if both puppies’ ears fell over the next week or so. That’s why I don’t tape them until they’re 12-14 weeks, because before that you can put in a ton of time and effort and they’ll just fall during the next ear-sprint growth period. I’ll show all you owners how and when to tape, and of course the local ones can come back if needed to have me do it.
