Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs "Ee" Litter Puppies Photos & Updates

 


Update:  Friday 18 May 2018:  end of 5th Week (age 41 days) - Von Sonnenberg German Shepherds Ee Litter: Puppy Photos  

Today is a very beautiful spring day,  and as I take each puppy out of the nursery to the meadow and spend time with them individually,  they are enjoying playing and following me closely.  they are right by my feet,  so it is very fun to experience together being outdoors.  it is raining a little bit,  so my camera is getting wet,  I am making sure the pups are safe and guarded as well,  for we live high in the Rocky Mountains with lions and eagles.  always keeping my eyes on the sky and the forest tree tops and branches while using my peripheral vision,  and looking into the puppy's eyes while talking to them,  they are talking to me as well and have the cutest voices. 

Playing in the grass and meadow,  discovering wildflowers,  seeing clouds in the sky and birds in the air,  so fresh and beautiful.
This is a very large field and meadow by the edge of the forest,  so this is quite an amazing view for the puppies to see while they are looking at me with this camera in front of my face. 
I love this one-on-one time together with these beautiful pups.  They have a lot of fun and love the experience.

all photos in this update are taken today,  the pups are 41 days old (the end of their 5th week).

Update:  6:00 AM Friday 18 May 2018

All of the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Ee Litter puppies are now officially Named along with their official AKC Registration Status,  and I have assigned Tattoo Numbers for each of the puppies.  Everything is recorded. 

Of course I AKC Register the Litter when the puppies are born, 
the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs "Ee" Litter AKC Registration Number is DN532650, 
but then each individual puppy is Named (by the New Owner or by me) and their official Full Name is Registered with the AKC along with their AKC Registration Status,  i.e.  AKC Full or AKC Limited Registration,  and I assign AKC Registration Numbers to the individual pups in Birth Order,  i.e.  DN53265001,  DN53265002, etc etc.  I keep extensive Records both hand-written in my journals and Breeder Records,  as well as online AKC Breeder Records,  I also keep Pedigree Database updated and also Working Dog.eu. 

Allowing for the time it takes for AKC to process individual puppy's Registration and send everything back to me (about 2 weeks), 
I planned this to ensure that I have all the legal documents and Certificates in place and all individual puppy's AKC Registration Certificate & AKC 4-Generation Certified Pedigree in-hand so that I can prepare each puppy's Documents Folder and Starter Kit. 
Everything will be in place and ready to present to the New Owners on the scheduled Appointment Dates for Transfer of Ownership. 
That is coming up in only a couple weeks!!  Time management is very important and there is still much to do.

Especially this week,  the 5th week,  as Ylecia is weaning her babies,  and the babies are transitioning and adjusting to being weaned,  and I have taken over their feeding schedule with precious time spent with their mother throughout the day,  and she sleeps next to them at night now.  Ylecia is an exemplary mother and has done a splendid job birthing & raising her puppies with complete devotion and love. 

Now the puppies are approaching their 6th week of age,  they are all very big and strong with very sharp teeth,  it is perfectly natural for the weaning process to begin once the pups' teeth come in (at 2-3 weeks of age) is very gradual and requires my careful management of the mother and the babies,  and their diets.  This is natural,  and actually Ylecia von Sonnenberg continued to nurse her puppies night and day for 5 weeks,  that is fantastic!!  "Bravo Ylecia,  you are the Queen!  Good girl!!"

I have created online Pedigrees for each of the puppies,  All of the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs Ee Litter Puppies are Named and their Names are Registered with the AKC along with their individual Tattoo Numbers,  everything is recorded in my hand-written records as well as my online Breeder Records.  Everything is up-to-date.

Here are the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs Ee Litter Puppy's Pedigrees (in birth order):

this is the puppies' 5th week of age (40 days),  they are so big and strong,  very intelligent,  healthy beautiful pups.  

they enjoy their meals so much.

I am training the babies to sleep through the night,  and

I bring their mother, Ylecia,  out from the nursery early in the morning about 5am and prepare her breakfast separately,  and I prepare the babies' breakfast,  and serve them at about 6am.  

Lunch is at 2pm and Dinner is at 8pm,  they have all the dry formula feed available free choice that they want all day.  

One never wants to limit feed young puppies,  they must always be provided for at all times in order to reach their maximum potential.

All of these puppies are athletic and adventurous showing great courage and self esteem.

  

This breakfast meal for this litter of 5-week-old puppies is 2 pounds 93% lean raw ground beef,  2 cups organic milk,  canned Natural Balance Lamb Formula and Diamond Naturals Large Breed Puppy dry formula layered together in the serving dish.  

you will notice the pups love to eat the raw meat first and then the milk, canned formula, etc.  they love it!   

These puppies are still with their mother,  Ylecia,  24/7 but at 5 weeks of age and this size,  (the pups are huge!!),  she is weaning them ...  the babies eat much more larger portions per puppy now that they are approaching their 6th week,  they are growing in leaps & bounds and getting bigger every day,  I ensure there is plenty and extra so that they all eat their fill and are completely satisfied.  

After breakfast,  the pups play for about 30 minutes,  and then they take a nice long nap together all snuggled up,  so sweet,  so happy and content,  and so very much loved.  They come back outside with me and play out here in their playpen supervised throughout the day,  and they take naps and sleep indoors in their toddler nursery at night.

Update:  7:30 PM - Saturday, 12 May 2018 - New Photos of the Puppies First Time Outdoors!!! -  they are age 35 days.

*scroll down to see photographs of the puppies

(The photos of the puppies are in Birth Order)  This was the puppies' first time and experience outdoors,  they are only 35 days old,  beginning their 5th week of age. 

it was sunny,  cool & breezy,  the pups were so amazed and stayed close to me.  every baby displayed outstanding nose instincts and tracking,  they followed me so excellently,  and each puppy's experience outdoors in the sunlight and meadow lasted about 20-30 seconds,  then I picked them up and snuggled them close and talked to them while carrying them back to the play-yard for them to see for the first time. 

The baby females were not quite ready to be out in the big world and preferred to stay right next to me even tho I only set them down and stepped away to take their photo only a few seconds,  being there in that place in the grass for the first time was so overwhelming to every physical sense.   That is okay,  they are very young females,  the feminine ladies who were quite surprised by the bright sun in the sky and everything,  and this was their first time.  Give these gorgeous baby girls one more day and they will conquer the world.  Everything is done gradually,  and with each of these babies,  I am so tuned in and sensitive to their every need.  It is important to understand that every baby is not always on the same clock as their littermates.  When I am doing photo sessions,  sometimes,  one baby might by sleepy,  one may be hungry,  so it is important to work efficiently and not take too long and overstress them.   Any sign of discomfort and the session is ended.  At this very young and impressionable age,  I don't permit these babies to cry or be upset.  And with each new day comes new experiences and further education.

I will bring them out again tomorrow,  and they all will remember their first experience which has a profound impact and leaves a lasting impression,  and as I gradually introduce new things,  and let them experience these things and bring them all out together next time,  we will see a much more knowledgeable response to all this stimuli.  the babies will remember everything that they experienced and saw,  smell,  touched,  ....   because you must remember,  this was the FIRST time these puppies stood on the ground and felt fresh spring green grass underneath their feet and footpads,  ...imagine all the beautiful first-time sensations!!!  of earth,  wind,  sky,  birds,  butterflies,  today was a fantastic day for all of the beautiful babies!!

The Males all were so astonished at first,  and then just lit up!!  and grew up so much in those few moments!! 
The males reactions were so different from the females reactions to their First Experience outdoors,  and this is perfectly normal at age 35 days. 

The Females showed being absolutely steadfast at 35 days of age,  and resolute in their unwavering position I placed them in once I set them down after carrying them individually,  and as I stepped away from them,  both of these beautiful girls reacted the same,  they stood still,  and just looked around and took it all in.  but they stayed!!  the princesses showed great courage and bravery.   ALL  of the males showed incredible bravery and courage,  and the females showed incredible bravery and courage as well by staying by me and observing with great interest and amazement,  everyone showing outstanding tracking instincts.  The experience brought out beautiful displays of courage,  curiosity,  interest,  investigation,  tracking,  they all stayed close to me,  and came running when I called them,  and followed me perfectly!!

I am very very pleased with all of the individual puppy's responses to all the amazing stimuli they experienced today!!  

It was a fantastic overall experience for all of these young pups,  to continue their education and socialization.
They all handled it beautifully for their age.  I can already see the benefits.  And afterwards,  they were all given a nutritious meal of canned Natural Balance Lamb Formula in warm organic milk which they love,  and they promptly took a nice long nap very happy and satisfied.

Here are the puppy's Weights at age 35 days (beginning of 5th Week):

"Red" birth ID MALE - 11 lb 14 oz
"Purple" birth ID FEMALE - Emmie von Sonnenberg - 10 lb 12 oz
"Pink" birth ID FEMALE - Ebonique von Sonnenberg - 10 lb 2 oz
"Green" birth ID MALE - 11 lb 10 oz
"Blue" birth ID MALE - Ein von Sonnenberg - 11 lb 7 oz
"Orange" birth ID MALE - Eaugoreck von Sonnenberg - 11 lb 7 oz

Please remember,  these gorgeous,  intelligent,  and very young babies,  were only just moved from their Birthing Room Nursery to their Toddler Room Nursery in the last few days,  AND they have just finished their 4th week of age and begin their 5th week of age.  All of these pups are advanced in their development,  very big and strong,  and all of the pups are in excellent health with the most beautiful intelligent minds,  loving hearts and souls.  I protect these precious babies during their formative days and early weeks to ensure that they receive everything they need to reach their maximum potential.  all of these profound new experiences are introduced gradually with praise and reassurance,  and most of all LOVE.

Update:  10 AM Saturday -  12 May 2018 - beginning of 5th Week 

  Celebrate!!  the babies turn 5 Weeks old today!!
 
The puppies will be wearing their new adjustable collars in colors matching with their Birth ID ric-rac ribbons in their photographs I am taking today.  The sunshine has accepted our invitation to celebrate the puppies' new week,  their milestones and fantastic development,  and their amazing beauty!

As the baby princes and princesses begin their new week,  so many new adventures and experiences lie ahead for them to stimulate their minds, their bodies,  and their senses,  and expand their horizons. 

Today I am taking each puppy,  one at a time,  outdoors for the very first time,  to the meadow where there are wildflowers and grasses,  dandelions and honeybees,  the great big sky,  mountains and trees one-hundred feet tall.   Clouds, birds flying in the air,  sounds of traffic from nearby highway,  all kinds of new sights and sounds and wonderful new discoveries.  with photos and feature videos of each baby prince and princess,  and the litter of pups together.

Ylecia will be confined during this time I am featuring each puppy,  because it will upset her to have a puppy separated from the other puppies,  so she will be ok waiting,  while I show these gorgeous babies the great big outdoors for their very first time experience,  to see,  hear,  smell,  track,  play.  and then she will be reunited with her beloved babies again,  to play and experience their outdoor play-yard for the first time.  Ylecia's scent is all over this yard,  because she goes in here every day.  the puppies will delight and enjoy all the new discoveries and will develop new skills and build confidence with this exposure to new challenges both mentally and physically.  There are new toys and obstacles for these gorgeous babies to find and learn about in their play-yard

Happy,  healthy,  beautiful babies!  :))  

 

These are the puppies new adjustable collars,  size 10 inches - 14 inches,  the pups are wearing now that they have turned 5 weeks old.
these collars match their Birth ID ribbon colors,  and will teach the babies to get used to a collar,  and then to introduce the leash.

 

Update:  8 PM Friday 11 May 2018:  end of 4th Week

VIDEO:  this video was taken about 18 hours after I had moved the babies from their birthing room nursery to their toddler nursery.
you can clearly see how happy the puppies are,  and how perfectly adjusted and content they are.  They are growing and developing so big and strong,  wonderful personalities and superb instincts. 

I love that princess Emmie was so interested in the Nikon camera I was taking the video with,  and I got an excellent video clip of her beautiful face as she stood there,  she is so lovely.  she was sleeping in the previous video,  and I'm so delighted to show you how beautiful she is. 

All the puppies are just incredibly beautiful,  so very intelligent with loving hearts and souls.

Update:  11 AM Friday 11 May 2018:  4th Week

VIDEO:  this is the video I was telling you about,  it's a video I took while sitting with the puppies talking with them.  super cute!
Video taken with Nikon COOLPIX L830,  and I uploaded the video into YouTube to share here in my website with you. 
I love this video! :))  The babies are so young,  and so precious.  

the pups are 32 days old in this video,  and it is the first day they are in their Toddler Nursery (09 May 2018).
After I moved Ylecia and her babies into the Toddler Nursery,  and after the puppies had a very satisfying meal of raw meat and milk,  they all took a long nap.  Then I went into their nursery and brought Ylecia out,  and I went back to the nursery and sat down with the puppies.
We enjoyed this quiet and relaxing time together as the puppies adjusted to their new nursery with such excellence,  taking it all in stride.
They are such good babies,  so calm and quiet,  and so playful & sweet.  Loving and loyal princes and princesses. 
This is my favorite time,  just being with the babies,  I love them so much!

I will be sharing another Video later today,  video taken Thursday (yesterday).  You will love it,  the pups are awake and playful.
New photos coming soon!  you will be so amazed how much the babies have grown.  They are all so incredibly beautiful!!

Update:  VIDEO:  09 May 2018:  the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherds "Ee" Litter puppies, 

First Time experiences:


it's graduation day for the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs "Ee" Litter,  at 4 weeks of age (32 days),  I have moved the pups from their Birthing room Nursery to their Toddler Nursery with their mother. 

this nursery is much bigger with lots of room for these babies to grow,  run & play.   

First time in this nursery - new experience and new environment.

Click here to view this VIDEO I published in YouTube. 
I have to learn how to embed my videos here in my website to the actual video appears. 
I will study how to do that.  Here is the link:

Update:  Wednesday 09 May 2018:  It's Nursery Graduation Day for the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Ee Litter

the pups are 4 weeks old,  and I have moved them to a completely new area much larger where they have room to grow and run and play.  there are blankets and toys,  squeakers,  balls,  tugs,  stuffed animals,  a raised feed & water station,  a medium sized crate that has towels inside if they want to cuddle up in there and nap.  I will be placing another larger crate in here tomorrow.  this is a great way to introduce the babies to a crate as a place of sanctuary and rest.  This is the first time the babies have been in here,  and they are adjusting beautifully.  I am acclimating the puppies to the outdoors,  and because it is spring time in the Rockies,  it gets quite cool in the evenings and mornings,  afternoons now are gorgeous weather.  These puppies will benefit greatly from this change,  and this Toddler Nursery is adjacent to an outdoor play yard which has a large double-carport sized canopy over one side,  it is a great area that tomorrow I will be introducing the puppies to.  that is where the tunnels and new surrounds are for the puppies to be introduced to tomorrow.  Also,  I am uploading into YouTube a video I took today of Ylecia von Sonnenberg with her and Credo Canum Victoria's Ee Litter babies First Time in the Toddler Nursery. 

I will be publishing that video here in my updates later this evening.

In this photo is Ylecia with her babies first time in the Toddler Nursery age 32 days

I placed a steel partition across the gate so that Ylecia easily hops over,  and it makes it easier for me when my hands are full and I'm carrying meals,  etc.  I must say I am so proud of these puppies for handling this transition so beautifully.  They are such good babies.  they promptly took a nap.  this was about 3:00 PM today.  that is prince "Green" birth ID ribbon Male sleeping there by the gate.  the pups are 4 weeks old.

Update:  05-07 May 2018:  Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd "Ee" Litter Puppies:  age 3 Weeks (28 days):  Milestones

 

 

The puppies finished their 3rd week with flying colors!  It is amazing how much they have grown and how well they are doing.
These babies are so advanced in their development,  and they are gorgeous!  

07 May 2018,  7 AM:  Ylecia and I were on a walkabout early morning after a thunder/lightning storm last night.  suddenly overnight the grass and wildflowers in the meadow and field are so green and grew inches overnight!  a beautiful morning with hummingbirds and singing birds,  robins,  brewer's blackbirds,  stellar's jays, to name a few.  With the incredible rain storm last night came the refreshment of the forests and meadows,  the creek and springs are flowing to the brim.  And the fruit trees and maple trees are growing leaves.  Spring time in the Mission Mountains has officially arrived. 

Look at Ylecia's milk!  she is still nursing her babies (who just finished their 3rd week and turn 4 weeks old on 05 May 2018,  she is producing gallons & gallons of milk each day as she is nursing them round-the-clock.  you can clearly see by this photograph the sheer weight of the milk in her.  When the pups are nursing her,  you can hear them gulping and swallowing and drinking her milk with such fervor!  The excellent and nourishing mother's milk is so fantastic,  that these pups,  even though they have their teeth in,  are nursing Ylecia throughout the day and night,  and they sleep together.  Ylecia is an exemplary mother! 

Ylecia is eating about 4 pounds of raw meat + 2 cans of Natural Balance Beef Formula + about 4 cups Organic Milk + 1 Egg + all the Diamond Naturals & Natural Balance Dry Formulas she wants per day!!!   Her appetite is fantastic,  her milk production is phenomenal,  and she is now actually beginning to gain weight.  The pups are all between 8 1/2 - 10 lbs in weight at the end of their 3rd week !!!!
that is just incredible at this young age !! :D 

The puppies have achieved fantastic milestones during their 3rd week of age.

05 May 2018:  Here are the Weights of the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd "Ee" Litter Puppies at the age of 28 days:

"Red" birth ID Male - 9 lbs 14 oz
"Purple" birth ID Female - Emmie von Sonnenberg - 9 lbs 3 oz
"Pink" birth ID Female - Ebonique von Sonnenberg - 8 lbs 7 oz
"Green" birth ID Male - 9 lbs 14 oz
"Blue" birth ID Male - Ein von Sonnenberg - 9 lbs 8 oz
"Orange" birth ID Male - 9 lbs 5 oz

These are some of the puppies' milestones to date:

began waking at the sound of my entry into their nursery,  leaving their mother and coming toward me,  began greeting me at the gate.
Teeth are in and they are eating lean raw ground beef with enthusiasm,  they eat quietly and with great pleasure.  About 2 pounds meat per day.
Introduction of dry feed formula softened in organic milk
1st Worming treatment at age 21 days and clear.
Introduction of toys:  small KONG toys and soft stuffed animals,  balls,   squeakers,  tugs...
Puppies are sleeping for longer periods of time during the night.  at 3 weeks of age,  are sleeping between 11pm - 4am.  with gradual increase in time.
Water has been introduced to the puppies in a large and shallow pan.  they are drinking water now.
Introduction of new surroundings and new rooms.
Introduction to random sharp sounds accompanied by soothing voice of reassurance.  excellent responses.

07 May 2018 is the last day Ylecia and her babies will be in the Birthing Nursery.  Today I am moving them to another room where the Toddler Nursery is.  It is an enormous room with so much space that I will be introducing the puppies,  who have now entered their 4th week of age,  to a variety of new experiences,  new things,  toys,  tugs,  platforms and tunnels.  They will be so amazed and have so much fun.  So I will publish this update and go get started with my work.  I will publish new photos of the puppies as soon as I can once I get my work done.  The puppies are all so beautiful,  big and strong.  I will do my best to publish photos later today. :)) 

 

Update:  Wednesday,  02 May 2018:  Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd "Ee" Litter Puppies age 25 days:  Photos

after letting Ylecia go outside in her yard,   I brought all the puppies out of their nursery and into the living room where I placed them all on the floor and left the room for a couple minutes.  When I returned,  I took photos of the babies where they had decided to place themselves.  This was the first time I ever did this,  so it was wonderful and interesting to see how they responded to being in this room without me.  Usually when I take portraits,  I will bring the individual puppy one at a time into this room where there is a gigantic prismed skylight which provides excellent natural light.  But I always stay with them,  and the photo session only lasts a couple minutes so as not to stress the baby.  This time,  all the pups were here in this room together,  and I love how they reacted to being together in this large room with lots of interesting things for them to see and learn about.

All the puppies have excellent temperaments,  they are all very calm and quiet babies,  they talk to each other and their mother with the cutest baby voices,  they truly love and respect each other.  sometimes they will play and practice barking and growling while at the same time laughing and pouncing with sudden spurts of bounces and runs,  tumbles and roll overs,  they are so hilarous when they play.  Very interesting personalities with distinct masculinity in these boys and femininity in these girls,  with strength of character and discernment.  Super smart!

Their intelligence is genius and so incredibly loving,  they all have the most beautiful dispositions.  As a Breeder,  it is extremely rewarding and brings me great pleasure to see the beautiful and magnificent breeding progeny results of Credo and Ylecia,  for with their genetic combination from such excellent Universal & World Champions Siegers & International Titled working dogs of the most excellent and RARE bloodlines,  these puppies have inherited their parents superb temperament,  excellent loving & loyal dispositions,  with amazing massive and beautiful heads and bone structure,  excellent overall musculature,  gorgeous conformation and movement with beautiful balance.  these pups have inherited incredible working drives with outstanding tracking & scenting instincts.  they have fantastic border patrol instincts all pups seek and find the boundaries and then return.  They are affectionate and like to cuddle.  All of these puppies have great courage and bravery with excellent self confidence.  Sweet and beautiful baby boys and girls.  [Note:  the puppy pictures are not in birth order]

https://youtu.be/Y-MtcvYnlY4

sweet video of Ylecia nursing her babies in her nursery at 4:30 am during the night. 
as you can see by the windows it is total darkness outside in the mountains and forests,  stars in the sky,  very quiet in the dark of night,  those beautiful hours when the babies are sleeping with and nursing their loving mother. 

the puppies are in their Second week and are so fat and healthy,  so incredibly cute. 

Their teeth have come in!!!  this is super-advanced for their age,  the pups are two weeks old with teeth.  amazing.

and they are attracted to Ylecia's feed dishes,  and are now walking over to her dishes and sampling the raw meat and the Natural Balance canned formulas I keep there for her.  more and more every day,  the pups are practicing their voices and expressing in their most cutest voices their growls and barks,  talking to each other and their mother.  wake time is lasting longer now.  the pups are sleeping very very well for long periods of time and then wake with energy and joyfulness, playful, and sometimes walk about their nursery.  I think it is time to introduce toys.  

Monday - 23 April 2018 - age 16 days

The pups are all doing well and gaining in skills and development.  They are walking now!  They are becoming more and more steady on their feet as they walk around their nursery during wake time.  They have begun to play with each other,  darling and playful sweet babies,  they smile and talk to each other.  Ylecia is still nursing them round-the-clock,  and her appetite and milk production are excellent.
  
The pups are growing in leaps and bounds and are already between 4-5 1/2 pounds at 16 days! 
These pups are super-sized with massive heads and bones,  solid hard muscular bodies,  incredibly agile and strong. 
Very beautiful calm temperaments in all of these puppies with the most delightful personalities. 
These pups are loving and affectionate,  quiet and calm,  alert and incredibly intelligent. 

I photograph my puppies with Canon EOS 50D which is a big camera,  and the camera lens is intimidating,  so keep this in mind when viewing their photos,  they are learning about the camera and to not avoid the "big eye" lens,  I talk to them soothingly and reassure them,  telling them good boy,  good girl,  you're so beautiful,  and they respond with trust and understanding.  They are so smart! and so incredibly cute.

Ylecia von Sonnenberg taking a little break from nursing her litter of pups,  we went on a walkabout together,  she
enjoyed the sunshine and spring weather,  and she wanted to return to her babies after only a few minutes.  
Ylecia is the most devoted and loving mother,  she cherishes her precious babies and wants to be with them always.

18 April 2018 ~ age 11 days ~  their eyes are open now, 

and because they are so young,  I am very careful about camera flashes.  more new photos coming soon,  while we wait for the babies eyes to develop.  their first and second week is so important to protect them.  all the puppies are growing so big and strong.
they are so beautiful.  as they continue to grow and develop,  I will be taking more photographs as well as videos.  Ylecia is producing massive quantities of milk,  and is consuming massive quantities of lean raw meat,  eggs,  milk and canned formula.  her appetite is excellent,  and she is doing a superb job of nurturing her precious babies.   Finally we have sunshine today with no clouds and snowing,  how beautiful for the spring weather after such a long winter.  And the beautiful natural sunlight streaming through the windows in the nursery enabled me to take this great picture of the puppies showing their gorgeous dark coat colors in natural light.

 

16 April 2018 ~ age 9 days.  3pm 

 

The pups are 9 days old and already over 3 pounds with excellent growth rate and development.
look at the size of "Purple" ribbon girl,  she is huge,  as big as her brother "Green".  those two are giants.
"Red" Birth ID Male and "Pink" Birth ID Female could be twins if she wasn't solid black.  Except "Red" ID Male is a full pound heavier than his "Pink" ID ribbon sister.  

Have you noticed that I have been having a challenge defining "Green" Birth ID ribbon boy's Sable Coat Color? 
He is truly extraordinary!  his color is different from the other Sables in this Litter.  They are all gorgeous coats,  it's just that his coat is different in his hair color pattern.  He often sleeps on his back,  and here in this photo we can see his gorgeous coat from underneath,  his front feet compared to the jet black of "Red" ID ribbon boy's back,  describe the color of "Green" Birth ID ribbon Male's legs and feet:  Red/Braun/Mahogany?  it is so beautiful!!  and the black on his chest and abdomen,  beautiful sable pattern. 
I think I should define his coat color as:  Red/Braun Black Sable,  his coat colors are really standing out distinctly pronounced and unique.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

[Note:  18 April 2018.]  The differences between the two Sable Male puppies,  "Green" birth ID and "Blue" birth ID,  are
Size:  "Green" is larger in size and structure with larger head than his brother "Blue". 
"Green"  is a giant-sized male puppy,  I think he will mature at about 90-100 pounds.
and "Blue"  is a top-sized male puppy,  will probably mature at about 80 - 90 pounds. 
"Red" birth ID Male is a giant-sized Male and also "Orange" birth ID Male is giant-sized,  "Orange" birth ID Male has his father,  Credo's structure and big wide head as does "Green" birth ID Male.  All the puppies have gorgeous heads and bodies,  I do notice which ones have the biggest head and point it out for observation. 
Sable pattern: 
"Blue" birth ID Male is the darkest of the two sable males,  and his coat is more like his father,  Credo.
"Green" birth ID Male is very dark sable yet he has more red and grey on his head,  throat and neck underneath.
Both Dark Sable Male puppies have deep dark pigmentation,  very beautiful colors and sable pattern with distinct sabled markings.
gorgeous coats.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________    

What is the difference between a Dark Sable and a Black Sable?,  in my opinion,  is:
A Dark Sable,  like the puppies' Father:  Credo Canum Victoria, ZVV1,  is a true Dark Sable,  and we can clearly see just how black Credo is as the black in his coat goes all the way down his legs to his toes,  amazing Dark Sable.

Whereas,  A Black Sable may not have the color Black down its legs to its toes,  it's legs/toes may be Red or Grey,  so the Black Sabling pattern does not in those cases extend to the feet/toes, and therefore is not as dark as Dark Sable.

When Registering the individual puppies in this Litter with the AKC and choosing a Coat Color from the AKC Selection,  there are no choices regarding Sable coat,  only 1 choice,  Sable.  Then other choices,  i.e. Bi-Color, Black & Red, etc.
Differentiating the various shades of Sable coats in this Litter with predominant colors,  the "Green" Birth ID Male's coat stands out.

All of the puppies in this Litter have gorgeous thick coats,  beautiful pigmentation and amazing shine!  Ylecia is doing a fantastic job!

16 April 2018 ~  age 8 days.  4:00 AM

 

Look how big the pups are!

the pups are all doing very well and developing very quickly,  gaining in size and weight,  and beginning to travel around the nursery,  they are using their legs with strength and purpose.  their eyes are not yet open,  but will be soon.  they are extremely alert and aware,  very calm and quiet babies.  just incredibly sweet and darling.  when I handle them,  they respond by pressing their face against my hand,  or vocally express with the cutest baby voices and sounds.  I love to listen to them.  when they are awake and more active,  they are exploring around now,  and always come back together to sleep on or nearby each other and their mother.  

I have turned off one of the heat lamps,  for a couple days now,  they no longer need two lamps.  the nursery is a large room with plenty of space for Ylecia and her 6 babies.  if they get too warm,  the pups move away from the heatlamp,  and if they feel cool (such as at night),  the pups will sleep on the warmed blanket underneath the heatlamp.  they are always comfortable,  and never cry unless they get themselves separated and need help getting back to their mother.  I am so impressed with their communicative abilities,  they let her know they need her,  and I am always listening,  so between Ylecia and me,  the pups are always taken care of.   more and more every day,  the pups are finding their way around the nursery better and better,  which means that,  the pups can now detect light and movement through their eyelids,  and their nose and scenting instincts are excellent!!

Here are some photographs I took earlier this morning.  I tiptoed into the nursery about 4am and took these pictures while the pups were sleeping,  and then Ylecia of course began moving around because she knew it was going to be breakfast time soon,  so the pups woke up and began nursing her.  I'm glad to share with you the sweet photos of the babies sleeping.  

It is pouring rain today,  very dark and cloudy,  winter is trying to hold on,  but the rain is melting all the ice and snow. 
I love springtime in Montana.

14 April 2018 - The pups are age 7 days and are just incredibly beautiful

Here are the babies sleeping in their bed while their mother,  Ylecia,  is outdoors taking a little break. 
look how happy they are sound asleep and so peaceful.  7 days old,  and I keep their nursery in low light.
their eyes are not yet open,  and I have been protecting them from camera flashes and bright light,  and 
now I see that they are moving their eyelids and following me,  they are aware of my presence and direction
even tho their eyelids are closed,  they are moving their eyes.
very very soon,  their eyes will open.  These pups are developing at a phenomenal rate. 
very healthy and very strong.  all are gaining,  I am pleased with their development and size.
a few of these pups are super giant-sized.  All have gorgeous luxurious coats. 

12 April 2018 ~ age 5 days

 
Ylecia and her beautiful babies Thursday,  12 April 2018 12:00 Noon

The pups are all doing great,  and they are growing in leaps and bounds. 
These pups are very very strong and vigorous healthy babies.
They are incredibly calm and quiet babies,  they mew and talk in the sweetest baby voices like a ...hmmmm purring sound,
they are so content and happy.

Ylecia is an exemplary mother,  she is producing outstanding quantities of milk,  she keeps them immaculately clean as well as her bed,
she truly loves her babies, and she is always cradling them and grooming them so lovingly.
I love to sit with her and her babies,  gently caressing the babies with both hands,  and Ylecia smiles watching me,  we enjoy these precious moments together.  

 

the Von Sonnenberg German Shepherd Dogs "Ee" Litter Puppies:  age 5 days 12 April 2018 

  

  

These puppies are gorgeous!  and just incredibly strong.  already they are pushing up with their feet to stand and propel themselves,
they do not crawl,  they are amazing.  very calm when handled while changing their ribbons,  each of these babies has a very calm disposition.  very impressive super-sized puppies,  take a look at their current weights at the end of their 4th day,  listed in birth order:

"Red" Birth ID ribbon Male - 2.4 lbs
"Purple" Birth ID ribbon Female - 2.3 lbs
"Pink" Birth ID ribbon Female - 2.1 lbs
"Green" Birth ID ribbon Male - 2.6 lbs
"Blue" Birth ID ribbon Male - 2.2 lbs
"Orange" Birth ID ribbon Male - 2.4 lbs

This is a very uniform litter,  and all the pups are substantial in size,  there is difference in type and coat patterns,  and the pigmentation is very beautiful.  It is wonderful observing how their coats are developing.

"Red" ribbon boy is a Dark Bi-Color with the darkest most Jet Black,  there is very little Red on this boy,  it is on the sides of his face and behind his front feet.  He is very very dark.  

"Purple" ribbon girl is a Dark Black Sable with incredibly beautiful Sable pattern,  Black overcoat with Red & Grey markings and undercoat.

"Pink" ribbon girl is Jet Black.

"Green" ribbon boy is Dark Black Sable with gorgeous Sable pattern and markings.  Black overcoat with Red & Grey markings and undercoat.

"Blue" ribbon boy is Dark Black Sable with incredible Sable pattern and markings,  very distinct.  Black overcoat with Red & Grey markings and undercoat.

"Orange" ribbon boy is Jet Black.  I haven't yet seen any other color on this boy.  very very dark.

I will share more photos soon so that you can see how well these puppies are doing,  and how much they are growing.  we are approaching their first week soon,  and I will share with you as many pictures as possible of the babies while their eyes are not yet open.  They are so beautiful.

Updates and Photos of Ylecia during pregnancy

Saturday 07 April 2018 the first born baby is a handsome baby boy! 
I will be up all night with Ylecia and her precious babies. new photos will be published asap! 
Happy Birthday and Welcome to the World sweet beautiful babies.

 

 First Born is a handsome baby boy!

Saturday 07 April 2018 -  6:00 PM

 

Look how gorgeous Ylecia is smiling at me as I take her photo.  I had just been sitting with her and giving her a lovely gentle body massage.  she loved it and is positively glowing!  she wants to stay right here in this corner of her nursery.  I have taken her outdoors several times today,  but she doesn't want to be outdoors for very long,  she looks at me as if saying can we go back in now,  and she hasn't wanted to eat hardly anything today.  Today I have offered her cooked beef,  lean raw ground beef, scrambled eggs,  organic milk,  I've offered her canned Natural Balance,  she licks it,  and walks away.  :))  this is called "going off her feed"  which is very common this close to whelping.  I'm keeping a close eye on her.  She is happy and healthy and feeling great.  She keeps rearranging her blankets and taking long naps.  one time this afternoon when I walked in her nursery (I check on her every ten minutes),  she was sound asleep on her back with her legs spread so cute and so comfortable,  I just smiled she looked so cute,  but then she heard me and rolled over and started wagging her tail.  I will keep this page updated and keep you informed on her progress.

  



 

Saturday -  07 April 2018 - 11:45 AM

Last night Ylecia slept on her bed next to mine,  she was quiet and slept soundly from 11pm until 4am. 

I took her outdoors for a walk,  then back inside the house for breakfast.  I grilled about two pounds of 93% lean ground choice beef and scrambled some eggs in butter for her breakfast making sure there is plenty if she wants it.  She only ate about a cup of food,  and promptly went back to her bed in her nursery.


Ylecia is not eating very much today,  which is a great sign of imminent labor.  She is very quiet and calm.  she is not pushing yet,  her contractions are very very mild right now,  but I have a feeling that very soon her contractions will increase in strength and the babies will be born.

Ylecia is doing great.  She has amazing quantity of milk today,  and she is completely comfortable.

I am keeping my eyes on her constantly.  It is very quiet and calm in our home,  it is very peaceful here,  raining outside,  a gentle spring shower,  with snow on the ground,  and birds chirping in the forest.  What a beautiful day for the babies to be born.  I am so excited!


Friday 06 April 2018 - 9 am

 

I love her gorgeous smile,  always happy and joyful,  Ylecia is a beautiful mother,  so sweet and loving.

  

This is where Ylecia wants to be right now at 2:00 PM,  sleeping on her bed next to my bed.  I put a sleeping bag over my comforter in case her first puppy is born right here,  she is very talkative today and very super sweet,  making eye contact with me often and I talk to her telling her what a good girl she is,  so beautiful,  and how much I love her and her babies,  when I say "babies",  Ylecia smiles so big and wags her tail.  so cute.

Ylecia kept me up all night last night talking to me.  she slept on her bed on the floor next to my bed,  and about every two hours,  she would bark softly to me,  two or three times,  and I would answer her and comfort her.  see if she needed anything.  and she did this throughout the night until about 5:30 am when I noticed that she was very quietly whimpering sometimes. 

I am sure that gentle pre-labor contractions have begun.  I think we will see her and Credo's beautiful babies very soon.  (it is common for German Shepherd females to whelp during the night).  But she could begin delivering her babies at any time.  She looks like she is ready to pop!  and she is very beautiful and strong.   Constantly by my side,  I am always attending to her needs. 

Once she begins birthing her babies,  I will be with her continuously throughout the birthing of all the puppies,  placing their Birth ID color ribbons on, taking notes,  taking photos,  bookkeeping, etc.,  I will update my website and make the announcement the babies are being born,  and I will publish photos of the precious puppies. 
I am so excited and happy,  I can't wait to see the beautiful babies! 

 

Thursday 05 April 2018

 
 

Ylecia and I take walks together,  keeping her active and exercised in-between her naps.

Wednesday 04 April 2018

 

11:47am 04 April 2018 -  Ylecia has decided this is her favorite place to be.  
we are keeping very calm and comfortable,  and ready for the beautiful babies to be born. 

 

  

Ylecia von Sonnenberg at 7:51AM 04 April 2018 ~ she is very happy and healthy,  she had a good night's sleep,
and yet she is not eating near as much these last twelve hours.  Ylecia has lots of milk development and her belly is very wide and round,  and very very beautiful. 

at 7am we were outdoors for a walk,  a blizzard blew in yesterday and last night.  it's still snowing.  wintry spring day with complete cloud cover.


This morning Ylecia is indoors with me,  and she is pacing the floor frequently.  napping often.  She is very "squeaky" when she talks to me while smiling and wagging her tail.  Ylecia is very excited knowing her babies will be born very very soon.  We are all so very excited and waiting.  very calm and quiet and peaceful inside our home on this very special day.  I will not leave Ylecia,  we are constantly together.  she is very very close to going into labor.

10:30am -  I noticed that she had taken her raw meat meal,  and she buried it inside her comforter and blankets inside her nursery.  A beautiful sign of nesting behavior,  stock-piling food for herself in her bed,  how sweet.

 Ylecia resting in her bed while I work in the nursery. 

 

1:10 AM 04 April 2018 ~  Ylecia sleeping inside her nursery at 1am. 

I quietly took this photo of her sleeping during the night.  she had got under her comforter and blankets,  and was sleeping on her back,  so soundly,  and so peacefully.  as I watched her sleeping,  I could see her babies moving inside her.  it's the most breathtaking experience,  and I can hardly breathe in anticipation of the puppies births.

Ylecia's nursery is ready for the sweet babies births.  she has a king-sized bed and lots of room.
All the pretty colorful ribbons waiting for the precious baby boys and girls

01 April 2018  ~  Happy Easter!

 

 

Ylecia feels wonderful this morning,  she is looking at the skylight as I take her picture.
We are only a few days now till the babies will come,  Ylecia is still eating her meals each day,  mostly raw meat,  that is what she wants most of all,  but I am still feeding her several meals per day of lean raw meat,  organic milk,  eggs,  Natural Balance Lamb canned formula and Beef formula along with all the dry formula she wants.  Her appetite is excellent.  She is developing milk,  and the weight of the litter of babies is very heavy,  Ylecia is very strong and healthy,  and all is well.  

she makes groaning sounds now when she gets up or lies down.  The babies are really getting big,  and it is beautiful to sit with Ylecia and watch the precious babies moving around inside her belly.  So sweet.  Ylecia is constantly by my side now and I am completely devoted to her and her babies.

 

31 March 2018

 

Ylecia at 7AM after breakfast.  Now when she sits,  she has to make room for all the babies inside her,  her belly resting on the floor.  She is doing great,  and her appetite is still excellent.  She is active in the mornings and evenings,  and takes long naps in the afternoon.  Her attitude is absolute joy,  always happy and wagging her tail,  so much love.

 

It began snowing as I took this picture of Ylecia at 7:30am 31 March 2018.

Ylecia is very beautiful and happy this morning helping me with my housework. 
Her precious belly filled with
 beautiful babies,  Ylecia is very close now to her due date,  she has a fantastic appetite,  and is doing great.

26 March 2018 ~  the newly rennovated Puppy Nursery

Ylecia and I are ready for the birth of her new babies.  I have been working very very hard these last three weeks rennovating the entire room and building her nursery and birthing room,  she and I will be together during her labor
and delivery of all of her sweet babies.  I have everything ready,  and she loves her room.  There is a door to outside
where she can go outdoors and in the fruit tree orchard,  I have built a yard attached to the house for her.

This sun-porch is so perfect for the nursery because it is right next to my bedroom,  connected by
French doors.  I will know when Ylecia goes into labor,  and we will be together the entire time.  The kitchen is not far
away where I prepare her meals.  And once the babies are born,  and as they grow,  this room is large enough for all 
the puppies to have plenty of room to run around until they are about 2-3 weeks old,  when I will move them to the
"toddler nursery" which is much larger. 

  

  
Ylecia and I love each other very much!

  

 

22 March 2018

this is where Ylecia takes her naps,  on the Egyptian wool rug next to my bed.  it's a very quiet,  comfortable
place to sleep.  photo taken 11 am

 

*  Lunch is served on a silver platter.  Ylecia's appetite has increased dramatically,  she is eating several meals per day,
breakfast usually about 4am consists of organic milk over Natural Balance canned Beef formula with egg and 
Diamond Naturals dry formula large breed puppy added together.  For lunch,  Ylecia loves to eat lean raw ground beef, 
usually about 2 pounds at a time.  and several more similar meals throughout the day.  She is still very active and
spending some time outdoors,  but most of the time,  she is inside, near me and especially cared for during her pregnancy.  

 

22 March 2018

Ylecia von Sonnenberg is positively glowing in her pregnancy,  always smiling and happy.
