For those of you who followed my blog in 2015, you would know that I simply referred to the puppies as ‘puppy one’, ‘puppy two’ etc. However, this year I will be doing something a little different.  I am a keen rose grower and thought why not name the little puppies after roses (for identification purposes only). That way, I can identify the puppies and you can follow each puppies progress as you please.

Ruby + Rodger

Ruby has given birth to 8 healthy puppies, born on the 16th of September. Once again, Rodger was the one who alerted us to Ruby’s distress. We woke to loud barking and soon discovered Ruby was in labour, had was having puppies!! I sat with Ruby all through the night and watched her become a mother for the second time. Like 2015, it was a great experience and Ruby is already showing why she is a great Mum. The puppies are clean and well looked after. Further blogs to come, stay tuned!


Ruby 2017

Hi All!!

My name is Theresa. I am Robyn’s daughter and reside on acerage just outside of Kilcoy, Queensland. Ruby, Rodger and Holly are our dogs. They are just like children to myself and my husband. We love them so much. Each dog is so different with their own unique personality. They are all so friendly and love meeting new people. Our dogs love walks, visits to ‘Oakhurst’ and most of all, cuddles on the couch whilst watching Netflix.

I look forward to sharing the progress of Ruby’s pregnancy through to the birth of her puppies with you. Ruby is a great Mum and did a sensational job with her puppies in 2015. I am sure she will be a great Mum this time around too. It is a very exciting time for us all!


Puppies leaving the nest

Mya left yesterday (Monday) leaving Zadie, Molly and Winston behind. Winston will be collected today. Molly, Zadie, Ruby and Rodger will travel from Kilcoy to Oakhurst tomorrow via car. Once they arrive at Oakhurst, my Mum will care for them. On Saturday she will then drive Molly and Zadie to Heatherbrae (near Sydney). Ruby and Rodger will be staying at Oakhurst for a two weeks whilst I finalise our move to our new residence. Most people who have been to my house recently know that I am in the middle of moving…busy times ahead.

I wish all families the best. I could not be happier with the lovely families that these little darlings are going too.

And then there were four…

Today myself, Ruby and Rodger said goodbye to Dasher and Joey. The little puppies are now with their lovely new families to start a new life. It was slightly emotional but I know the puppies will be loved, cherished and well cared for.

Molly (Puppy Five) fell asleep in my arms.



I have fed the puppies a great variety of food over the last four weeks. Some I have blogged about and some I have not. I will make a list of the foods that the puppies really loved.

Chicken Mince, Beef Mince, Grinded up chicken necks (making sure there isn’t any small bones), VIP Puppy Roll, CHUM/Pedigree tin food and Supercoat Puppy Biscuits. I always try to incorporate biscuits into their meals to ensure the nutrition value is good.

I hope this helps, and I am sure all families are getting well prepared for the arrival of their puppy.

Week 8 Weights


Apologies for the poor quality of photo. Puppy’s turn 8 weeks old on Monday (15/02/2016). I have attended to their weights today as I will be busy on Monday.

Puppy Dasher and Puppy Joey are going of to their forever homes tomorrow, with other puppies going at the start to end of next week. Exciting times ahead for the puppies and their families.

Molly and Joey Stair Climbing


These two little cherubs were found walking up the stairs during their free time in the house today. No puppies fell and no injuries occurred. These two can successfully walk up/down the stairs. Very smart little darlings.
