Oh no! Our time with these babies is half over! It goes so fast and they grow so quickly! Apologies to friends, family, and responsibilities I have to organizations, but the next 4 weeks are just for having fun with these puppies while they are with us!
We did weights today. Sadie is the first to reach 6 pounds! Imagine that! Lizzy advanced past 5 pounds to join the boys in that weight class, and little Rita is at 4 pounds 9.5 oz. Don't let her little size fool you. She is full of piss and vinegar!
While trying to capture head shots, I took Rita down by the pool this afternoon. She was at first a bit uncertain about the new surroundings, but I soon had to abandon the camera so I could keep up with her to make sure she didn't take an unintended dip!
Margot and Dave visited today. The puppies were on the patio and woke up for about 10 whole minutes to entertain them by chewing on their shoe strings, buttons, fingers and anything else they could get their mouths on! Then they crashed again!
And they graduated to kibble simply soaked in water today with no objections. Soon we can stop soaking and I can begin carrying dry kibble in my pockets to reward good behaviors (assuming they exhibit any)!
Here are their 4 week mug shots and their 1 day to 4 week collages with a bonus cute puppy pick to fill out the frame for each! Scroll on because there are some pretty funny videos (mostly featuring Rita) at the end!
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 saved them off as pdf's and was reviewing them last night. It was a good refresher on all kinds of things and brought back lots of good memories. Looking forward to Imagine memories too!
