Hello and welcome!
are all born in my home just outside Tyler, Texas with hands on
assistance at the time of delivery, unless the services of a
veterinarian are needed.
This is a photo of part of the front yard on a rainy day.
Keepsake Pom puppies
remain with their moms
for the first few weeks and are handled
by us for brief periods each day. During these mini handling sessions
puppies are weighed and looked over, just enough to help their
sensory experiences along a little.
Litters are usually whelped in our family
room where the babies remain in a puppy pen with their mom for nearly
around the clock surveillance.
When the puppies
are making their way around and beginning to explore, we remove the whelping box and
place a washable medical bed pad on the floor of the puppy pen for good
traction under tiny paws. Next we place bedding and toys in
with them as this will be home for the next several weeks.
Here they can romp, play and get accustomed to using the potty paper,
while hearing the noises of day to day life. * Or do nothing at all,
as these puppies are doing!
