Fun and Games 4 weeks old today

Leia went home on Thursday, so puppies are officially weaned. They've become extremely active this week and have graduated to spending time in the kitchen with toys and a whole lot more space to run around and play. They're a very vocal group, so there's lot barking and carrying on.

Today we started the weaning process and we had pablum. Pablum, for us, is puppy food ground up in a blender and mixed with a whole bunch of warm water. We usually have to convince puppies that it's a good thing. Not so much with this crew. They dug right in.

Crate Training

This wee girl decided she liked the looks of that
blankie in the kennel, so she was determined to
get in there and lie down. She's also officially
our first "escapee" from the whelping box. Just
went down to find her SCREAMING to get back in!

Leia puppies - 3 weeks old

Wendy and I had lots of fun taking pictures of the puppies today. We had them all up to the kitchen and I took 115 photos. Needless to say, some are better than others, so you get to see the better ones.

The basket is getting too small for everyone to fit, so boys are in one shot and girls in the other.

All the puppies are very mobile this week. Lots of running around and barking. We're going to start the weaning process later today - just want to make sure everyone is getting enough to eat.

2 weeks old

Here are a few photos. The basket's getting pretty full. As you can see, they've pretty much doubled in size since last week. The pairs are boys. The little one with her eyes starting to open is a girl. They were 2 weeks old yesterday. Today's excitement was a nail trim for all puppies. Wendy came to visit Leia and spent a couple of hours with the puppies. Yesterday Barbara (our vet) was by after work to pick up her daughter Katherine, who spent an hour or so visiting babies.

Leia babies - 1 Week Old

Puppies were 1 week old yesterday. The top photo is one of the little boys with a very full belly. Next 2 photos are of the girls. When I took the boys out of the basket, they yelled like banshees which upset momma, so back they went. Girls couldn't care less. Everyone is doing very well. Not a whole lot of difference in size anymore. Anyone who was little has caught up. We're having much fun.
