SIX WEEKS OLD!

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

How did we get here so fast? The first few weeks seem to pass so slowly, but now they’re changing nearly every day and when you think you should do something with them you blink and they’re already doing something else!

What’s happened recently?

Several more visitors.

One puppy pierced Jim’s ear. Now they’ve tasted human flesh we’re all doomed…

They’ve had various different enrichment items, including a beach ball!

They get to run around the downstairs when I clean their pen. This makes for some interesting monitoring….

They spent some time on the deck today since it was warm out. The grass is soaking wet so I haven’t had them on it, but at least they got some new smells in a new location today!

They’re eating wonderfully, they LOVE their raw. They’re eating two raw meals and two kibble meals a day. I want them to eat a variety of things, not only because I think it’s probably healthier over time, but also because I want them to be willing to eat whatever their new people want to feed them. My own dogs eat one kibble meal and one raw meal a day.

We started charging the clicker (finally!) last night with baby food. We also took their first set of individual “stacked” pictures. I am very pleased with this litter so far, they’re well built and all have lovely temperaments so far. Chex already has two ears standing up! I expect they’ll fall again when they grow, but it’s really cute.

They had new visitors all the way from Connecticut today!

They’ve slept in the big pen all alone the last three nights, with Zhora and I next door.
