Maddy and puppies (week 5a)...
In week 5 the puppies have moved out of the whelping box period, and only stay in it at night. Now is the time to really learn about life.
First time they were relocated to the kitchen and living room, they were allowed one trip back to sleep in the whelping box, after that,they didn't need it anymore.
Now a puppy crate is their "safe" and R & R hang-out.
Their lives has changed with the surroundings, and the wish to explore, learn, taste, play has no limit now. The sounds and commosion of TV, kitchen machines and people moving around is now and forever a part of every day life.
Please be adviced, that we might take a few days on responding to e-mails.
We thank You for Your patience.
Number 2 "big event".
Also at the beginning of week 5 a new family member was "added" to the pups' lives.
Kikka's eyes now see "little dogs", and no longer "prey". She "moved in" with the puppies to the rest of the house, and now plays the part as the caring and gentle aunt.
The puppies are learning that not every dog has milk, but then they must be for "some other kind of use". They challenge and play with Kikka as if she's a "toy" and take her as the most expected thing in this world. No-one has showed any kind of apprehension towards Kikka, rather the opposite. The trust and confidence is amazing.
This "toy" has come to stay!
