We haven't weighed puppies for a couple days, so we had big jumps for all today! Maxwell, Sadie and Jojo are all 5+ pounds now and Lizzy and Rita are over 4lbs! Chunky monkeys! Sadie is still the largest. She eats with gusto! Imagine that!
A few new toys were introduced today and were immediately noticed and inspected! Biting has begun as those teeth are fully erupted. Puppies are beginning to run (not very well), go in reverse, and eat chunkier food.
It's very humid here now and the puppies do NOT like it. Maxwell and Rita are particularly unhappy about the heat. Most of our visitors come in the afternoon. If we go outside where there is more room to sit and interact with the puppies, the entertainment is short-lived.
The grass mat is getting about 50% attraction! Hopefully that will improve! I'm waiting till my new supply of puppy pads arrives from Amazon to set up one outside for them.
Our friend, Fred, visited the puppies early this afternoon. (No photos as I was still on after lunch clean up patrol!) Later Mike and Riley stopped by. They are really getting to know the puppies and do such a good job of engaging with each of them! Today I got to see photos of Riley, Cambell and Amelia with their first Dalmatian, Quincy. The girls were so tiny and Quincy was so sweet with them. No wonder the family wants another Dalmatian! And we have bonus photos from yesterday thanks to Peggy who sent me a couple photos from their visit with Cameron and his girlfriend, Kelly.
Enjoy the photos and a few short video clips!
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!
