Dear Puppy Diary,
Well week four, days 22-28 are behind us now. Lots of new things happened in this week. Pups are out of the whelping room and have graduated out of the whelping box near the end of this past week.
The puppy pen is set up in the kitchen where they are slowly being integrated into everyday life, lots of activity in this area of the house. Plenty of visitors coming and going, and they even get to see the resident cat as he tiptoes pas their pen.
They are fully engaged with each other and there are some squabbles beginning as they test each others tolerance. Their teeth have emerged and their canines are like needles.....ouch!
They met their first singing toy complete with lights flashing, it was a big hit. Their litter training is coming along very well and getting better by the day.
Best of all and to top the week off, on day 28 they had their first meal at 7:00 am that morning. They dove into breakfast with great gusto, delighting us all with their enthusiasm. They sure are a fun little bunch of pups.
Days 29-35 are about to begin...exciting plans in place already.
Susan Luyendyk and
