Weimaraner Puppies

We are pleased to announce that Bracken started whelping on Friday 9th May and gave birth to 5 beautiful boys and 4 gorgeous girls.


Bracken has taken to being a mother like a duck to water, she's been taking a quick nap now and then inbetween grooming and feeding her new litter.


By morning Bracken was worn out and starving, looking after a litter of weimaraner puppies is exhausting.

Click the video opposite, Bracken is incredibly proud of her new additions, even if they are hard work.


Meet the gang, at only three days old we can see a big difference in Brackens beautiful little weimaraner puppies. Bracken like her mother Fern is a fantastic mum, for the first three weeks of the little weimaraner puppies lives she will be constantly feeding, cleaning and making sure none of the pups stray too far from the litter.


As you can imagine it is difficult to take an interesting photo thats different for the diary everyday, but somehow you point a camera at a Weimaraner and you always end up with something, that usually makes you smile.


As you can see in the photo's Weimaraner puppies are born with faint grey stripes which over about seven days fade, to the instantly recongizable weimaraner silver grey colour.


The puppies had their first vet check yesterday during which our vet Rick Brown, removed the puppies dew claws, the result was unanimous all the puppies have a good set of lungs.


Now the weimaraner puppies are one week old Bracken will leave them for short periods usually early morning and late evening when they have settled down after suckling. During these periods we try to get her out in the fields to blow of a bit of steam, it cant be easy laying in a whelping box all day with 9 hungry demanding weimaraner puppies.


We took this video of Bracken yesterday taking a brief rest from mothering her pups, she's with her sister Sapphire and mother Fern.


Bracken is constantly grooming her new puppies, but it is important that we ensure the whelping box is kept as clean as possible, its a regular routine that is rigorously scrutinized by Bracken.

DAY 10

Bracken is a fantasic mum, but Fern is a brilliant Granny as well, she does'nt interfere but keeps a watchfull eye on her weimaraner gran-pups.

DAY 11

The first Weimaraner puppies eyes started to open yesterday and surprisingly it is'nt one of the big butch boys, its one of the petite little girls.

DAY 12

Bracken's youngest sister from last years litter Ella, came to visit Bracken yesterday.

DAY 13

If you're a fortnight old Weimaraner puppy all you want to do is drink and sleep and what could be better than using your brother or sister as a pillow.

DAY 14

Bracken's Weimaraner puppies are two weeks old today, which means we weigh them, much to the amusment of the puppies.

DAY 15

At two weeks old we worm the little Weimaraner puppies for the first time, needless to say they don't like the taste, the faces they pull are hilarious.

DAY 16

Thanks for this photo taken by Nigel Simpson, the sleeping pups have formed two clusters, could it be boys vs girls?

DAY 17

Yesterday we bought the Weimaraner puppies new collars in preperation for when we move them into their larger accomodation.

DAY 18

We've had to increase the height of the whelping box sides, there's a few of the pups decided they want to explore the outside world, but soon realise its nicer being cuddled up to mum.

DAY 19

DAY 21

The pups let us clip their claws yesterday, some even enjoyed it.

DAY 22

The Weimaraner Puppies love to come out of the whelping box and be pampered by mum.

DAY 23

The puppies routine at this age is suckle mum, 15 minutes puppies playtime followed by a long snooze, what a life.

DAY 24

Yesterday we started supplementary feeding the pups with milk, to take some of the pressure of Bracken, as the pups grow they need more and more, the pups didn't need showing twice they loved it, licking their bowls dry.

DAY 25

We are feeding the Brackens puppies three times a day now and they love it and so does Bracken.

DAY 26

A WARNING! to all this years prospective Enjager puppies new parents, Stanley from Fern's 2012 litter, in the photo opposite with his Doggles on, is an example of what to expect, our Weimaraner,s have attitude and style.

DAY 27

This morning we put the collars on Brackens Weimaraner Pups, initially they weren't too impressed, but they soon settled down.

DAY 28

We tried taking a photo of all 9 Weimaraner puppies together, it wasn't easy, they don't stay still for long.

DAY 29

Puppy talk, every now and then the pups form in to little groups to play, its incredibly cute to watch them building bonds with their brothers and sisters.

DAY 30

We tried Brackens little Weimaraner puppies on solid food mixed with milk today and they loved it.

DAY 35

Bracken's Weimaraner pups are 5 weeks old today, so we are dedicating one day's update to each puppy, to give you an insight in to their character.
We start with Black collar, he is quite dominant and independent, he mixes with all the pups but doesn't seem to favor any he's a proper boy.

DAY 36

Blue collar with white spots, he's quite laid back enjoys playtime, eating and regular snooze, makes friends easily, mixes well.

DAY 37

DAY 38

Blue with coloured bones collar, popular with the other pups, little bit cheeky likes to play, tends to go around all the other pups to see whats happening.

DAY 39

Purple collar with white spots, he's a bit cheeky, if you pick him up he will give you a kiss but then nibble your ear, very playful a proper character.

DAY 40

Pink collar with white spots, bossy, cheeky but quite sensitive, likes to play rough as long as she’s not getting hurt, bit of a tomboy.
