Well, it's been an eventful couple days! Yesterday morning when I picked up Goldy to do ENS with her, she was looking back at me! First to open eyes - Goldy! Waino is working on getting his open too! Waino is also now making "big dog" noises. Sorry - none caught on audio, but he is making a growling noise when he doesn't like something now. It's pretty hysterical because he really is a sweet puppy! And today he was actually barking! Everyone else just squeaks and moans, but Waino is finding his big dog voice! The other great event from yesterday is that Albert passed the 2 lb mark and doubled his birth weight. He's still the smallest but he continues to grow and is about the sweetest puppy ever!
All that pumping their legs at the milk bar and little puppy stretches are building up their muscles to get up and go! Goldy - our leader of the pack - is really working at getting up on her legs to walk! Others are as well, but Goldy is most advanced at this point and most actively working on it! I predict this little girl is going to be a whole lot of fun for someone! I also predict that by the end of this week, I will be having a hard time keeping these guys in the whelping box!
Cindy and Stephen visited again today. They made sure all 4 puppies got equal time with each of them. Rhani and Jo Jo got some love from them too!
We want to make a BIG shout out to the Baby Daddy, Liam! He was awarded back-to-back Group Firsts this weekend at shows in Ohio! Way to go, GCH Liam! We can't wait to get back to the show ring!
I leave you with some random cute photos from the past 2 days. You can see spots emerging rapidly!
Until next time....
I like to keep a diary of the puppies as much for myself as for prospective puppy buyers and interested friends. Sadly my blogs for Lucy's and Baili's litters are no longer available due to legacy systems, but I recently reviewed the Imagine Litter blog. It was a good refresher on all kinds of things and brought back lots of good memories. Looking forward to Cardinal memories too!
