Week One!

Happy One Week Anniversary to The Rockstars! On this big day, they are spending the day eating and sleeping, and eating some more. What good puppies!


Puppies are weighed twice a day and above is a week one weight chart of their progress.; a healthy puppy should double their weight in the first week. Their weights are tracked twice a day, and this chart includes their nighttime weights. Everyone is lookin' good and putting out the ounce(s).

Blondie gives Nail time a "Paws Up"!

Nail Time

"Jagger" showing us how it's done

The Rockstars grooming has begun, they are having their nails done with baby nail clippers. Trimming them early ensures they will not scratch up Csilla's belly or each others eyes, in addition, daily handling gets them used to having their feet examined and makes for a well and properly socialized puppy. Once the pups are old enough we introduce the "dremmel" and pups and owners get lessons on dremmeling before they go home. Then their owners will also follow up on appropriate weekly nail care.

The Vizsla really is a wash and wear breed and the only thing owners really have to focus on as far as maintenance is "nails". Note: If you can hear a dog's nails on the floor - they are too long!

Neurological Stimulation

"Iggy"

Day Three: The Rockstars litter began their Early Neurological Stimulation exercises which is part of the Bio Sensor program. This program is designed to give the dog a superior advantage in life by simulating the neurological system early on. Click the link above to view the exercises and additional information. These exercises will be repeated on each pup, once a day, through Day 15.


The pups are weighed twice a day to ensure they are all growing (and they are). Above is a photo of "Iggy" during his weigh-in.

Rockstars first road trip . . .

Puppies modeling their new tails

Day Two: The Rockstars went on their first "road trip" to Yorba Regional Animal Hospital to meet Dr. Beckie Williams for their dew claw and tail docking procedures. Aunt Shirley came with the gang as their "roadie" to rotate nursing pups throughout the drive.

Dr. Williams said everyone did great and all pups are healthy. She also complimented Csilla for being a very intense and concerned mother, she can tell the pups are well looked after.

With their new tail docking The Rockstars are starting to look more like Vizsla puppies (above).

All the vet techs in the office were so excited to meet all the famous Rockers and Rockettes! They said [Joan] "Jett" lived up to her namesake as a vocalist during her visit ; )

X-Ray confirms it . . . we're expecting . . .

Dr. Williams at Yorba Regional said we can expect between 9-12 puppies.

Csilla is doing great, she is in perfect health, has a fantastic appetite and is getting plenty of sleep and as much (or as little) exercise as she would like.

Day 50

Another photo of Csilla's ever growing belly ... an x-ray will be performed next week to determine the number of pups. If you are following Moonlight Vizslas on Facebook, you can make your "best guess" along with everyone else ; )


She is definitely is sleeping more but has a great (big) appetite and loves either having a nap completely stretched out, or dozing off on a soft & comfy spot (bed, couch, fuzzy dog bed, etc.)
