Today is Rhani's 4th birthday! She spent plenty of time today taking care of the babies, but also enjoyed a lot of time in the yard and by the pool and a nice walk this morning. Treats and hugs were aplenty also! And she got to do her very favorite thing - chew up a plastic water bottle!
The babies got their nails done again today. All of them tolerated at least two paws without getting too fidgety! Most got through three paws with no fuss! Sadie did, however, reward me with a lapful of pee! They had their second gruel meal and enjoyed it with the same gusto as the first.
During weigh in today, I was a little freaked out because Sadie seemed to have lost a little weight. That was until I discovered that when I put their collars back on after eating, I managed to put her collar on Max and his on her! Neither Dave not I noticed the mistake when we weighed them! Good grief! One is a boy and one is a girl! But I did notice it while doing their nails. Again - good grief! But now that the correct weights are assigned to the correct puppies, guess what....Sadie is the first to go over 4 pounds! Imagine that!
Late this afternoon, the puppies had their first visit to the outside patio without visitors to cuddle them. Everyone had fun exploring, climbing over and under table legs, barking, sniffing and acting like little dogs.
Tomorrow the puppies turn 3 weeks old and I have a DCA Board Meeting all afternoon via Zoom. Hopefully we will find time to squeeze in 3 week head shots. I tried to catch a few today. Can you tell who is who and which one is missing? (She was sound asleep while I had the camera out doing this.)
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!
