Cynder’s New Life With Puppies

I thought I’d do a quick update for those who are interested in how Cynder is doing with her three new puppies. It’s hard to believe that they’ll be three weeks old on Tuesday. They’re doing great and getting huge!


Cynder has adapted well to motherhood, but she needs a lot of breaks. I thought that having puppies might slow her down a little bit, but she seems to be even more hyper with an abundance of energy. She was already back to playing and herding the day after having the puppies. It’s like she never had puppies.


We have names for the three pups. The merle puppy that reminds of us Winston we decided to name Bowie. She’s the biggest out of the three, although not by much. We can already tell that her eyes will more than likely stay blue like Winstons. This is the puppy we chose to keep. Here are some pictures of her below.



Her eyes both opened last weekend. She’s already starting to play and growls and barks a little bit. This is a picture from a few days ago. Her eyes are already lighter.


The second pup born is a boy and it looks like he’ll be tricolor. Mainly black and white, with some brown above his eyes and a little on the sides of his face. He’s so different! His eyes are dark and we think they’ll stay amber/brown like Cynders. We named him Fig.




The third pup born is the runt, or should I say ‘was’ the runt. She’s a little smaller than the first too, but huge compared to what she was when she was born! She’s just about the same size as Fig. We named her (Little) Lotus.



She had one eye left closed that just finally opened a few days ago in the picture above. It appears that her eyes will most likely be brown. She reminds me so much of Cynder and I think she’ll look just like her.


They’re doing well! They’re still not able to get out of the kiddie pool. When that happens, we’ll move them to a different location. I’m thinking maybe 2 weeks tops and they’ll need to be moved.

Winston enjoys checking on them throughout the day, but he still isn’t sure of them.

Thanks for reading our puppy update. I plan to do another one in a week or so.

Hope everyone has a wonderfulΒ weekend!

    Aw…they are all beautiful and special in their own unique way! I love that you named the one you’re keeping Bowie….great choice!! That’s so funny that Cynder is already back to her herding….at least you know she’s good and healthy!

      1. I bet! They grow up too fast ❀Like kids! It went by much too quickly, and I can’t get rid of this migraine, but it wasn’t too bad otherwise! I missed Outlander though πŸ˜” Too busy grading papers. I’ll catch up with it later! And I’m headed to the neurologist this week, so we’ll see what is going on with my head…I hope! Have a good week!! Talk to you soon β€πŸ’œβ€

        1. Sorry you missed outlander! I downloaded the Starz app last night because I had to restore my tablet. Will be starting it soon! 4 episodes were available last night, so I’ll just binge them. Can’t wait! You have me psyched up!

          Sorry you are still having problems with the migraines. Please keep me updated on it and I hope it passes soon. There’s no worse pain to me than a migraine headache! πŸ˜‰ ❀ Chat soon!

        2. A binge of Outlander sounds fantastic!! ❀ I hope to watch it this week but if not, I will just binge it when I'm on fall break πŸ˜‰ I've got so much grading to do before break starts since I do NOT want to be doing anything for work then LOL.

          Thanks, I can only think that it is all the time spent on my pc. Even though I'm doing better on sleep, I'm still on my laptop an average of 16 hours a day, and that cannot be good for my eyes (I think that's why I'm getting blurred vision) much less my neck and posture. Most of my headaches are starting in my neck since I have a bulging disc there and then causing migraines…I hope this is short lived since I have a history from 11 years ago from where I had combo chronic migraines/cluster headaches every day for 2 1/2 yrs until I found the neurologist I see now. He's really not going to be happy if that starts over again!! And I definitely agree…I'd almost rather be in a full blown fibro flare than have a severe migraine since I have aura with mine along with dizziness and nausea and a bunch of other lovely symptoms. I have a feeling the dr is going to tell me to limit my pc time and see if that helps… 😦


    1. Aww, thanks! Lotus looks just like Cynder. I can remember when we first got Cynder and she was just under 6 weeks old. It’s amazing to me. Bowie, who resembles Winston, is just like Winston and sleeps a lot. She also sniffs a lot like Winston. They are so much fun! πŸ™‚ ❀

      1. Ugh. They’re too precious for this world. I wanna cuddle them… I love animals, and puppies. And kittens. And- y’know what? I could go on and on, so I’m just gonna stop there. But if you want to keep posting progress pics of the puppies and your dog, I wouldn’t mind one bit…πŸ˜‰
