The puppies are growing up!
What a fun week we've had with the puppies in their new space. Located right next to the kitchen they have gotten to hear lots of new sounds, including all the preparations for our family Thanksgiving Dinner pots and pans clanging, timers going off, exhaust fans running and even the smoke detector (oops).
Their inner pen is kept small to facility potty training but they have lots of time outside that space in a larger area where they can play and explore and interact with Edie.It's incredible how their coordination has improved from the beginning of the week to the end of the week. At first they are still fairly unsteady on their legs but at the end, they are quite sure of themselves and their footing, running and turning easily and even backing up. We keep several blankets and mats down for them at this age because without them the floor is just a little bit too slick for them to be walking on right now.
They spend a lot of time sleeping but their stamina has increased and they are now awake and playing for longer periods of time each day. Next week will be another exciting week of growth and development for the puppies. Check back here to see what new experiences they have.
These puppies have all been spoken for. If you would like to follow the litter's progress please join us on Facebook and like our Northrock Barbets page to see frequent updates and photos.
