Outside The Box!

Can you believe how big the pups are getting?  Mr. Brown is over 5# and Ms. Yellow is not far behind.  Did you also know that size in the litter is not at all determinative of adult size?   In one of our litters a buyer was very hesitant to take a certain puppy because he was the biggest pup in the litter.   At three years old he's right in the standard and as she says, the perfect size for her. 

 Friday was an exciting day for the pups - getting to investigate outside their whelping box.  When we clean the box we usually do one of two things: 1) put the puppies in a laundry basket  2) give them a feeding session with Peach on a fleece on the floor.  Last night I needed to change out the fleece in the box because they no longer need Peach to help them urinate, so the box was quite wet.  They were up and raring to go, so the laundry basket was not a good option.  So I put a fleece down on the floor and took some pictures while Lise cleaned the box.

They are walking quite well so Saturday they are being moved out of the whelping box into their first play area so we can start their potty training.   In the meantime, lots of new photos are up.  Enjoy!

Oh, yeah, you will notice another link in the sidebar to the Beer Litter - that's because Glee is in season and is being bred on Saturday!  We are all prepped for pictures to go up!  Please send fertile thoughts to Glee!
