The pups made a lot of progress this week. They learned to potty train themsevles most importantly! They are 100% effective at using a pad that I have placed in their whelping box. Like magic! They have also found one another and play and gnaw on each other and play growl. It is so cute! They also have begun to seek out and appreciate human interaction. They are also getting ready for a new environment. At 3 1/2 half weeks we plan to move them into a ex pen during the day and give them a little more room. We are also going to move them to our sunroom where there is plenty of sunshine and warmth from the cozy den they have lived in so far. At night I will still take them up to my bedroom so we can all be close but they are moving into the little entryway to our bedroom rather than right next to my bed. All in all this will be a big week for the pupsters. At four weeks we will introduce some food to them so that is a step away from total reliance on Genny. They nurse less often during the day and especially at night when Genny is in bed with us. So far they have been easy and a total joy.
The four week olds!
We are Five Weeks Old!
Our Sixth Week!
Kate has probably won out for alpha of the litter. She pushes the envelope and gets the most corrections from me. She hasn't met a pee pad she doesn't want to chew! I don't even know what to say about Wills except that he is just such a character and so stunning to look at. He looks like a stuffed animal that Sid has as a puppy. The blacks as we call them are sweet and starting to come into their own. Harry is a lover and likes to challenge Wills and Kate constantly. Pippa holds her own as well and is just so darn cute. All in all they are a total joy in every way.
Can you believe we are 7 weeks?
They are all beautiful inside and out.
The Nine Week Olds!
The pups personalities continue to emerge. Kate is mellowing a little and Wills is a very busy boy! Harry and Pippa continue to be the biggest snugglers and capture everyones's hearts. Wills and Kate are very flashy and very bold most of the time but the older they get they are all evening out. Next week we will begin posting their pictures with their new families. Genny and I leave for California in two weeks for a dog show so the timing is good as I am not sure how I can live without these little guys. It will be a very quiet house!
10 Weeks Old and time for our new homes!
This has been the busiest week for the pups so far! They were Baer tested, cerf'd, microchipped and had their last vet exam at Tyburn Woods. Harry was first to leave with his new family outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Wills left the next morning and fared an 11 hour ride to his new home in Winterville, NC Pippa next left for her new home in Slippery Rock, PA but she comes to visit everyday. How lucky are we? Sid isn't so sure. Kate has also left for her new home in Wheeling, WV.
