Week 6 and and our favourite things are definitely food and playing at the moment. We're now so big we don't all fit round the "Mexican Hat" feeder and this morning we all had our own individual bowls.
We are starting to get into mischief, trying to go places we shouldn't and have a chew on anything that looks interesting.We really look forward to meal times and throng around excitedly trying to trip up whoever is carrying our food bowl. We're sweet really and come for a cuddle and a play afterwards!
This week we have been introduced to the outdoor world and now spend a lot of time during the day outside exploring and playing. Its been a bit windy the past couple of days but we like that and sometimes get to pounce on a passing leaf! When inside we have been listening to a CD that makes all sorts of strange sounds such as engine noises, washing machines, trains hooting and fireworks so we get used to them. It isn't long until Bonfire Night now so it is good to hear what fireworks will sound like and not be surprised by them. Today we had another dose of worming medicine - argh! There are some more photos of us here
Wow! This has been a majorly exciting week for us puppies. We have had visits from all our new families and loads of attention and people taking photos of us. In the same week we have been introduced to new tastes, sights and smells and toys to play with. We are starting to be weaned and have discovered there is more to eat and drink beside's our mum's milk (but we still like a good drink from mum!).
One of our visitors even climbed into our pen with us. She was a lot bigger than us! She said her name was Emily and gave us cuddles.
Well, there are plenty more photos added to the gallery - just click on the button below...
More photos here. As you can see from the photo above, Molly has decided that standing or sitting for feeds is now easier for the pups and her. Whenever she enters the whelping box they are up on their feet so fast now and heading straight to the bar! All have eyes open, can hear and are up on their feet exploring, little tails wagging. After a feed they play with each other and are communicating more and more. They all enjoy a good cuddle and their new families are starting visits. In the coming week we will be beginning the weaning process, slowly introducing them to softened puppy kibble.
