Maddy and puppies (week 4b)
All the puppies eat every time we serve. Only the biggest ones, Arapahoe, Shoshone and Sioux Stub Butt are more "die-hard eaters".
Regardless, the food stays around for both round 2 and 3, as all the puppies still have a hard time staying focused on the eating. There is so many other things a curious and playful puppy needs to do.
So they eat, play a little, go back to the food, play again, explore the area, then eat some again.
Besides, Mama Maddy is still taking very good care of them, so why care to eat too much?
Please be adviced, that we might take a few days on responding to e-mails.
We thank You for Your patience.
Potty training and box.
Potty training is moving right along. This week the puppies graduated into the BIG box, and have now half and half sleeping area and potty-area.
This has helped in keeping the sleeping area clean quite a bit, and there is less and less "mistakes" every day. All 5 puppies are very aware of the set-up and really try to get to the piddle pads, when they need to go.
On their feet.
The puppies are gaining footage by the minute. Again Shawnee has pulled a "first" on RUNNING, and she moves VERY fast through the box, and when out on the floor.
All the others are right behind her, and quite lively and strong on their legs. They actually do little "mouse attack jumps" when playing.
We have tried to take "standing" pictures of each of them, but obviously they don't stand still very long for pictures...
"Hey brother I'll put you in your place".
Cheyenne with toy
"Allright, don't know what you are, but I'm making you dead meat".
"Ok, what or who should I attack next?!".
Shawnee with toy
"I'll just taste you first, then kill you".
Sioux attack Shoshone
"Ok little brother, I'll show you pushy".
Wanting to be a lab-dog
"Hey, I'm coming up to say hello, hang on".
Shoshone and Sioux gang up on Shawnee.
Shawnee saw Maddy
"Hey mom, how about you come in here and feed us?".
2 days short of 4 weeks old.
Of course looking the other way.
Moved while picture was taken.
Not too bad, but still not straight.
Sioux Stub Butt stand
Not too bad either, the food helped.
