Puppies: Apples & Oranges, watch them grow

Hillary and Tinky both had puppies this week.

Hillary is black. Tinky is white. Hillary is agile, athletic and high energy. Tinky is content to stay at my feet or laying next to me at any given time. They have completely different body styles. They are both beautiful specimens of the breed, but so completely different that they can't be compared to the other. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to combine the two litters into one joint theme for posting photos. The theme is very suited to the two girls:
Apples & Oranges

Since Tinky comes from the West Coast where the best apples are grown, her puppies are being referred to as "The Apples," and since Hillary is from Florida, "The Oranges" was a no-brainer for her puppies.

As always, these puppies are not available. I have homes already arranged for each of them.

The Oranges
Hillary (Ch. Sedoso Havtahava Dominant Jeans), CHIC # 44477, welcomed the arrival of her little beauties arrived in the morning last Tuesday, March 25, 2008. The sire to these puppies is Brutus (Ch. Waltron's Brute Force of Windfall Havanese) CHIC# 36580.

Trovita, chocolate brindle female

Trovita is our oldest of the Oranges Litter. She threw us a curve ball and has amazed us with her obvious brindle markings and chocolate pigment. There is no guesswork about it. She has full, solid dark brown pigment on all of her pads, her lips and her nose and was born with it all filled in already. I've never seen a true brindle puppy in person and to add the pigment is a hoot. Anyone who knows me knows that I have no desire to intentionally breed for chocolates and guess who landed right in my lap? She's a doll and has already been claimed by my husband as his dog. Even if she never shows, that is his companion and he's making no bones about it. He won't even let me call her "ours", and I have to remind him that he doesn't really get to dictate that. Ha ha.

Atwood, cream male

He is getting his pigment in and seems to be getting some gray color inside his ears. I'm not positive yet, but it almost looks like he is getting a gold/caramel color on top of his ears (not shown in this pictures) that I'll have to watch develop. Other than that, he has no markings on his body. He's naked.

Shamouti, black male with white markings on his feet and chest

Shamouti is a male mini version of his mother, Hillary. He was born with full pigment.

I will continue in the next post with The Apples.

The Apples
This is a repeat breeding to the Exquisite Litter from last year. Tinky (Ch. Amor's Vinales Tinkerbelle) CHIC #36336 is the mother and Tyler from Oeste Havanese (Ch. Tapscott's the Dominator) CHIC #17643 is the sire.

Braeburn, male, sable parti

Jubilee, female, black Irish pied

Pippin, male, extreme black parti (or extreme piebald)

Keepsake, female, sable parti

McIntosh, male, black parti

If you click on the name of any of the puppies, you will be taken to their online Flickr album where more photos will be uploaded that may not get added to this topic.

Congratulations on some of the most gorgous puppies I have ever seen! It is going to be a fun few months at your house. I can see why your husband made claim to Trovita. She looks amazing!!

Oh my stop my beating heart! They are SO SO SO CUTE! AND I GET TO PLAY WITH THEM IN 3 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!

Craig will have to fight me for little Trovita, though, I just might have to walk off with her.... she is Kubrick's chocolate kiss, after all.

Oh and I love the lopsided males in the Apples litter. Their lopsided black face markings are just too cute.

Okay, I think since there are two litters, I am claiming my pics on Shamouti (come on high energy agility dog) but I will also take Apple #5- I love his facial markings... couldn't have painted them more adorable!

My girl is Apple #4 (Now named Keepsake) - see I knew she was a female even in the puppy pile. By the way, major congratulations on the chocolate. I know someone you know who's going to be SO jealous.

Wow are you going to be busy or what?
