Puppy Breath!

Close up photo of the BOY

On Tuesday, I drove up to Nederland to visit the puppies. They are four weeks old now! How time flies... and they are starting to look like dogs instead of hamsters. Their personalities are starting to develop too. When I arrived, the breeder woke them up and fed them in the kitchen. Then we took them outside to the dog run to let them play and I was able to get some nice pictures.

I had initially planned to spend an hour there but by the time the pups started to fall asleep, it had been two hours! Where did the time go? The boy was the last to fall asleep. The three girls had curled up together while the boy decided to nurse on Momma and then continued to explore around the pen. Eventually, he did fall asleep on my lap.

All the puppies are confident and curious about everything. There is one tiny little girl who is just so darn cute and frisky. If I wanted a girl....

The pups are starting to eat solid food but still nursing on Momma. The four of them outweigh her now. She is such a good mother.

Diana:
No, not leaning. I am still decided on a boy. But that little girlie is so cute (can I get two?).

Kathy:
I already have my training plan (revised Summit's training spreadsheet). I will post it soon so all of you can offer suggestions and any changes. I am also going to purchase a video camera to record our training session.

Curious to know why you're set on a boy?

Kathy,
Sage is a very bossy bitch.
I love my girlie but she is all about what's in it for her (I admire that about her) but after having my first boy, Summit. I just have grown to love the biddable temperament of the boys.
