The puppies are now five weeks old and they are getting big. They range in weight from 5 to 7 pounds! They are eating soft puppy food and running all over the place. Ziva and the puppies are still being treated with vitamin K1 for the accidental ingestion of rat poison by Ziva. Neither Ziva nor the puppies have shown any signs of symptoms. We've started the weaning process with Ziva and the puppies as well. By next week they shouldn't need mama anymore.
My name is Ryan Strickland and my wife Anita and I fell in love with the white dog, "Ziva" on the our dogs page. I found an older male "Yoda" and brought him home and we talked it over and decided to branch out Strickland's Kennels into NE Cape Fear GSD. Strickland's Kennels was a working retriever kennels that bred, raised, trained, and hunt tested retriever. We bred Golden and Chesapeake Bay Retriever since the early 1990's. I still train a retriever every so often for myself as a hunting dog or for a special client. We've been breeding and raising dogs since 1993.
