I NEVER get tired of looking at these ADORABLE little babies on x-ray! Ok, if you have never seen one before, you are looking for small faint circles (these are the skulls) followed by spine and ribs. I had my vet point some of them out. I just want to scoop ’em up and hold ’em already!! <3

I could go on ALL DAY about this pedigree combination!! I was super excited about it last year when I decided to breed them the first time and after seeing first hand the results, I am even more excited this time! Our young star this summer was Guardian Xoana Von Gottschalk. Handled and trained by our junior handler, Liliana, Xoana has taken home a trophy in every show she has entered!!! I have such high expectations for this litter and CANNOT wait for these pups to be old enough for their evals!!
Here is a video of one of the puppies at 10 days old drinking homemade formula from a bottle! (I think he likes it)
Here are the pups at 20 days old eating semi-solid food for the first time (a mix of pureed salmon, chicken, lamb, whole organic yogurt, egg yolk and goat milk. Think they like it 😉 )
Happy and proud mama! <3These are some of my most favorite photos ever! There is something so special and symbolic with mom’s massive, protective- strong but gentle- paw with her daughter’s tiny little paw resting so safely and secure on top. These photos, at least for me, just really capture everything I love about this breed and these exceptional Rottweilers.
Here are the puppies at 10 days old!
