So the group has been named “Flower Power”

Due to the fact this will be Primmy’s last litter we decided to dedicate it to her. Hence the “Flower Power” group. Now we know that’s a little girly for our only boy but we think he is man enough to own it!

Some people may think it’s strange for us to name our pups as ultimately they may change once they go to their new fur homes and isn’t it a sign that we are getting too attached? My stance on this is, they are Alaula’s babies first, we put our heart and soul into raising them for the first 10 weeks of their lives, which is considered to be the most critical time, we want them to feel comfortable with us, that’s how we raise good temperament and socially accepting puppies, but we are also fully capable of saying goodbye especially when we know they are going to wonderful homes (and they are little terrors after 12 weeks, just joking) . We do our bit to give you the best puppies we can. Changing the name of a puppy when they reach their furever home is also quite simple and they take to a new name without much fuss. So with no further ado we have the following :

Girl long tail (black) – Gypsie Rose aka Gypsie
Girl long tail (white) – Desert Rose aka Desie
Girl 3 nbt – Willow Rose aka Willow
Boy nbt – Kool Cosmos aka Cosmo

So obviously the “Rose” in the girls comes from our beautiful Primrose and the “Kool” in the boy comes from our main man Koolaroo. Welcome to Flower power kids.

Hooray for Primmy! We have broken the drought!

Alaula Tenterfield Terriers welcomed Atenta Primrose aka Primmy and Aaungara Koolaroo aka. Mouse newest litter this morning. Prim started showing signs of getting ready to whelp late last night and started delivering between 9am-10am this morning. Prim gave birth, firstly to a beautiful nbt (natural bob tail) boy. Peter and I, then held our breathe as the second pup arrived about a an hour later with Alaula’s first long tail girl, hip, hip,hooray our girl drought was over. Prim soon followed up with another two gorgeous sisters, another long tail and just for variety, a heavenly nbt.

All puppies were good weights and she delivered well, with no real complications. There are more pics and videos on our facebook page of the whole experience however for those who are following our webpage here are a couple tasters for you. Don’t worry more photos will follow.

Food Glorious Food……

It is just mind boggling the amount of information out there these days about dog food. Today’s blog I’m going to focus on what’s available, how to choose your food and some interesting facts that you may not know about feeding dogs in general. So firstly, lets discuss some pros and cons of dog food. The most common types are as follows:

HOMEMADE
