These puppies are all named for mountain peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains.
The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are located in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, which is where these puppies were born. The Sangre de Cristo mountains contain a number of 14,000 foot peaks(called fourteeners) in the Colorado portion, as well as all peaks in New Mexico that are over 13,000 feet.

 Mountain Peaks Litter - Nine Weeks Old and Growing Up So Fast
 

Mom and Dad said we are becoming independent puppies! We got to play outside, go for stroller rides, take another hike and go for more car rides. We had our first visit to the vet. She was very nice and everyone there loved us! She said we were very healthy. We went to our first festival - Balloons Over Angel Fire - where we got to see hot air balloons. Mostly we loved all of the kids who came over to see us, hug us, pet us and hold us. We gave them lots of kisses!

Week 8 - October 8, 2015

 

We're 8 weeks old! That means we all had our soaped photos taken and our conformation evaluations done. First we had to get slicked down with some thick shampoo - one at a time. Then we were supposed to stack on the table. We did pretty good.  We had out photos taken from the side, the front and the rear. Then we finished our bath, got dried with the hair dryer and had to stack on the table again - side photos, front photos, rear photos. Mom and Dad wanted to show off our straight legs and our beautiful structure. They said we are gorgeous puppies!

 Mama Sadie finally said, "no more nursing." So now we are weaned. That just means that we only eat puppy food. We napped in crates this week. We still get to nap with one or two of our siblings. It's a start. We had more visitors, another car ride and got to play outside a lot!

Week 7 - October 1, 2015

 We are becoming independent! (Mom and Dad told us that.) The most exciting part of our week was meeting lots of new people who came to visit us. We loved all the attention! We also got to play outside everyday. We love to run and chase each other. We follow the big dogs around. We also love to walk with Mom and Dad. We only nurse once a day now - mostly we eat our puppy food. We went for more car rides and we're getting pretty good at it. We also started napping in a crate. We love our new independence!

Week 6 - September 24, 2015

 We went outside for the first time this week! We loved it so much that we started playing outside everyday. There's lots to discover outside - like sticks, stones, flowers and lots of things we can try to put in our mouths. Our teeth are all in and looking perfect. They are very sharp and we learned the word "ouch." Our humans do NOT like when we bite their toes. We are eating more puppy food and nursing less, but Mama Sadie still loves to cuddle with us. We also went for our fist car ride. We were nervous at first, but then we found out it wasn't so bad. We'll go for more rides next week. We can't wait.

Week 5 - September 17, 2015

 We started puppy preschool this week! Three times a day we go to a special play area where we get to explore, run, climb, crawl under, climb through, etc. The preschool play area includes steps that we can climb up or crawl under, a tunnel, lots of soft beds that we can jump in and out of, a rubber mat, and of course – lots of toys. What fun we’re having! Our teeth are coming in and this week we got to try puppy food for the first time. Yummy! Our favorite part is when we are almost done and Mama Sadie comes in to lick out the dish with us!

Week 4 - September 10, 2015

This week we discovered that humans are fun! We love to go running over to our human family, wag our tails and climb up into their laps to snuggle. Then we're off again to play with our littermates and our toys. So much to discover! We also love Grandma Lani. She lets us climb all over her, snuggle in her silky hair and she lets us tug at her and bat at her. She's like one big lovable toy. We also get to play with Grandpa Kai! What fun. Oh, and big news - our teeth are coming in.

Week 3 - September 3, 2015

This week we learned how to play. We spend a bit more time awake now and love to wrestle, chew and bat at our siblings.
We even have some toys now, but we think our siblings are the best toy of all. We’ve attempted to run and jump, although we need more practice at that! We have a pee pad now and we know how to use it! This really seems to amaze everyone and they say things like, “good puppy!” Oh yea – our ears are open now too. So every afternoon we listen to our Puppy Sounds CD.

Week 2 - August 28, 2015

We had a busy week.
We learned to push ourselves up from a creeping position and stand (a bit wobbly) on all 4 legs.
We took our first steps – right towards Mama  Sadie! Mostly we napped and nursed and got all rolly polly.
The most exciting part of this week was that we opened our eyes. What a beautiful world! Tomorrow we graduate from SuperDog!

Week 1 - August 20, 2015

We’ve spent the week nursing and napping. We get weighed twice a day. Boy, have we grown! 
Mama Sadie takes good care of us. We love to burrow under her silky hair until we disappear. 
We also started our SuperDog program this week.
