Hello World!

Miss Red Says, "Hi!"

The Max litter has kept us quite busy over the last 10 days!   The pups are growing like weeds.  A few of them weigh slightly less than four pounds and others are just about to hit three pounds.   Miss Red says hi!   As you can see, she, like her littermates, are doing well!

There were some other exciting events that have happened since I last blogged - the pups’ eyes and ears opened.   They attack each day as though they are saying "Hello, World!"  This time in the life of the pups is so cute - they are truly discovering the world.  They put each other’s mouths in their mouths and chew on each other and their mother.  The other day their teeth buds started popping through their gums. They are playing with toys and really getting around quite well, as you can see in the video below!

Mr. Black says, "Hello, World!"

We decided to move them into a larger box so we could add a potty area, which we did yesterday.  Some of the pups are already going into the potty area to do their business.  Was it intentional?  Coincidence?   Luck?   Probably all three came into play today.  But in a few days it will be more intentional than luck or coincidence.  The first step in potty training - woo hoo!!

Peach continues to be a wonderful mother.  She, too, had a little problem with some early mastitis, but we have that under control, as well.   As I said, it has been a busy week!

I have put up a lot of pictures in the weeks 3 and 4 folders.  I will be adding video, too, but it takes a long time for them to load, so be sure to check back often.

What a great time to be around a litter. They are adorable. Plus the work.
