After many years of sharing our Barbet news and writing about the growth and development of our Barbet puppies we retired the blog at the end of 2020. All of the past entries remain posted so feel free to take a look around and scroll through previous posts to get a feel for the breed, our dogs and how we raise our litters. More information about the Barbet (French Water Dog) can be found on our website: www.northrockbarbets.com
It's been another great week for Northrock's E litter. The pups eyes are all open now. They had toys added to their whelping box during this last week and have slowly begun to interact with them. They are also beginning to play with one another. Mouthing and batting at each other and with Sophie. I could sit and watch them for hours on end.

The pups are also up on their feet now and are moving about the whelping box. It's not the most graceful movement but they are most definitely up and about and enjoying their new found ability to explore. We had to add the door to the whelping box as they had figured out how to climb over the pig rail and out of the box!
Here is a video of the pups at 2 1/2 weeks old.
These little pups are growing quickly and the weeks ahead will be lots of fun as we get to know their little personalities.
