Goldens Born in April 2010

I noticed a thread that was created for September puppies of last year and thought it might be neat to create a thread for April puppies of this year. I know there are at least 3 of us that I noticed with puppies at, or around this age so here it is!

Vash was born on April 6th.

He is a big boy (and not really fat, just tall)! He's gained about 2lbs since his last vet visit and is at about 22! He's eating about 3-3 1/2 cups of food per day and still looks lean and mean .

How are your puppies doing and what are their temperaments? Vash can be very loving and calm, and he can seem like a chicken with it's head off, running around like crazy. To expel the energy, we have to take him for two walks a day.

Ooh I'm glad there's a thread for April pups! Alfie was born April 26. I'll have had him a month on Saturady. He's 11 weeks and 1 day old and was 10kg/22lb at the vets today! He's not fat at all and quite leggy at the moment. My boys temperament is; independant, curious, CRAZY! lol He's not much of a cuddle bug but I'm hoping he will end up that way eventually! No accidents for quite a while and he usually goes and sits by the door when he wants to go out. He sleeps through the night in his crate.

Vash does the same He's been doing really well with house training as well. Only the occasional accident, where we don't get there quick enough and he piddles at the door.

Jaro was born April 15, so birthday will sure be easy to remember. He weighed just short of 17 lbs earlier this week at his vet visit. He has a typical Golden temperament, he seems to love everyone and everything and has is neither shy nor too outgoing. He still sleeps a good bit during the day when not much is going on. We have been to two puppy classes, visited the groomer for a meet and greet, and gone on several excursions just to socialize him. We would like to do therapy work with him so early socialization is a must. He does have a little separation anxiety when I leave him alone in the crate and he tries to follow me when I leave the room he is in, but that is getting better. Nipping is also getting less. Today I cleaned the carpet in the dinning room and at first he was unhappy that he could not get to me, then I gave him a bully stick and he was perfectly content. By the way, Jaro is Czech for Springtime since he was born in the spring and his mother was named Summer. I will add a photo when one of my kids shows me how to do it.

Vash got his name from a character named Vash the Stampede. This is an excerpt on the character:

Vash usually exaggerates foolish characteristics to make people feel unthreatened and to hide his identity. He frequently voices the catchphrase, "This world is made of love and peace," which is usually complemented by his flashing of the peace sign. However, when those around him are threatened, Vash shows complete focus and control.

Cosmo (Redgold's Prince of Persia) was born April 6 too. He is about 33lbs and just yesterday starting getting his big boy fur and looks. We discovered little dark wavy hair on his lower back when we brushed him last night. His puppy fluff is starting go and thankfully he's not so hot anymore.

He's pretty independent and loves to chew on his toys and go for walks in the forest. He's also a fan of the beaches and likes to swim. He's pretty obedient and (if I may brag) is outperforming all the older pups in his kindergarten class. Go Cosmo! We are planning to use him as a therapy dog when he's older.

Bradley was born April 28th. He also is 11 weeks tomorrow. He is a sweet boy. He follows me around the house where ever i go. Has some separation anxiety. Hardly has messes in the house. Sleeps though the night just fine, no whines or whimpers. Gets up at 5:30 every morning. He is 20.6 lbs. and is getting much taller and thinning out. This week is our first week going on walks and he has been taking a like to it. He tends to love playing and wrestling with me while he cuddles with my wife. He still is nipping a bit but we are working on that. He has learned to ring the bell at the back door but also has learned that he can ring it to go out and get into the woodchips!! . He spends the day with his cousin tito a 3 year old lab and wrestles and plays to his hearts content. The breeder had him on pro plan when we got him and since then we have been transitioning him to blue buffalo. its a slow process we are at 50/50 on the second week. He knows sit and lay down(although he needs a treat for that one) All in all he is a very good pup so far.

Jona born Apr 6th brought home May 29th.
I'm not 100% sure on his weight but last time he was at the vets 2 weeks ago he weighed 13 lbs and right now he is about 20-22 lbs.
He's a firecracker for sure!

Loves to chew on his antler bone on my lap and loves to play rough.
Potty training has been really good with him and will run to the door when he needs to go and if I for some reason dont notice it he'll bark while at the door.
Taking him out on walks has become easier and easier every day.
He loves to chew on pieces of tree bark and little sticks the finds in our yard or during our walks; actually he eats anything in the grass that isnt grass
He knows sit, down, stay, come, paw, other paw, let's go outside, and crate
He sleeps every night from 9pm-5am
His nipping was a problem and then got better but now has become a problem again.

All in all he's a great puppy!

oh yay april pups!

Joey was born on April 15th. 3 Months old today. Last week at 12 weeks he weighed 17lbs. His favourite toy is a stuffed duck that he chews, sleeps with and sqweeks! He had his first marrow bone a few nights ago and he loved it. His cat brother Jesse loves him and they play all the time. He currently knows sit, down, paw, spin, otherway, stay, come, headshot. He is going on his first road trip this weekend. Potty training is great, hasent had an accident in a few weeks, he runs to the front door whenever he needs to potty. He ususally sleeps around 8:30-7, sometimes 6! He is an overall Joy<3

The biggest issue we're having with Vash is teaching him OFF. He loves to jump up on the table, couch, chairs... everything. I hope he'll get it, but he's just so darn curious.
