Mai's Gypsy Litter
 
Birth to 8 Weeks
 
             
Raising healthy, well-adjusted, true-to-type puppies in the family home takes an extraordinary amount of time and dedication.  Their physical, social and emotional needs must be met at each stage of their development.  It is a labour of love...
             
 
 
Newborn Puppies
 
 
 Mai tending newborn pups - a gentle and attentive mother
  
 Less than one day old
 
 
 
Puppies' First Week
 
 
 
Their noses change from pink to black
 
Dinner time
 
 
There's nothing quite like snoozing on mum's leg after a good feed
 
 
 
  Puppies' Second Week
 
 
 Shuvani pups are weighed regularly to ensure they are thriving 
 
 
Their nails are carefully trimmed to keep Mai comfortable as they feed
 
Mai with her puppies - relaxed and content
 
The sweetest little bookends imaginable
 
 
 
Puppies' Third Week
 
 
 
 Sleeping sweetly
 
So sweetly...
 
 
Their eyelashes are growing, along with their whiskers and soft waves on their ears
 
Each one a miracle
 
 
 
Puppy love
 
  
 
 Puppies' Fourth Week
 
 
 
Anyone for a cuddle?
 
 
 The puppies enjoy human company
 
 
 
They have started eating solid food
 
 
 They are alert and curious
 
 
 
Wrestling playfully, learning important social skills
 
 
 and they sleep... a lot
 
 
 
Puppies' Fifth Week 
 
 
 
Outside for the first time
 
 
 
 Morning tea on the verandah
 
 
 
 Followed by a picnic lunch
 
 
 
 Hanging in there
 
 
 Life is good
 
 
 and they still sleep... a lot
 
 
 
Puppies' Sixth Week  
 
 
 Mai gets one to one time with her puppies, teaching them how to behave and washing their faces
 
 
 They are curious and affectionate
 
 
with kindly expressions
and soft coats
 
  
 and the ability to nap wherever they drop
 
 
 
 
 Puppies' Seventh Week 
 
 
  
Growing up beautifully
 
 
 blissfully
 
  
 
relaxed 
 
 
  considerate
 
 
 tuckered out
 
 
 curious
 
 
 majestic
thoughtful
  
 Handsome boys ...
 
 
 Stunning girls ...
(now Australian Champion Shuvani Freyja Rose)
 
 
 and ready to find their places in the world.
 
 
 At Eight Weeks
 
 At eight weeks the puppies are ready to go to their forever homes.  Shuvani Puppy Packs are prepared, and so are the puppies...
