The puppies are 4 weeks old!

The puppies have had a great week.  They are turning into 'real' puppies now and are developing their own unique characters!  They are playing, running exploring and getting lots of hugs and kisses.  They still sleep quite a bit, as it is so hard to grow so fast and learn so many new things.  They are getting used to getting brushed and cleaned and their toe nails done.  They got to go outside for the first time and did great!  They loved the outdoors and the extra space!   Some of the puppies explored the puppy ramp and the puppy house, others just hung out on the grass.  They also got to play with some of our other dogs, which is always fun to see.  They will be growing and exploring a lot this week and are getting super cute.  Next week they will even look more like 'real' puppies!  Though they have had some visitors, they will start to have more and more people come and see them over the next few weeks to help with socializing them to all sorts of different people!

The last photos of Ruby's puppies in their whelping box.

How cute they are!

The puppies are 3 and a half weeks old!

The puppies have had a big week!  Their eyes are fully open and they can hear.  They are starting to play and wrestle with each other.  They are growing their personalities and are enjoying having some visitors.  Talia and Ruby are both sharing puppy duty as all the puppies are now together in a bigger space!  They are loving the extra room to move around and grow their bones.  A few of the smaller puppies in Ruby's litter still are sleeping in the box with Ruby, but not for too many more days.  They grow up so fast.  This week they will start to eat some canned puppy food, which they will love. They are also learning from the other dogs in the house!  Zara, who is almost one year old is loving the puppies, she is very gentle with them!  It's so adorable.
