I asked my breeder how the puppies were doing as they will be four weeks old on Monday.
She told me, "They bark, pounce, run sideways, carry little ducks in their mouths, pee on their own, drink water and are having fun. The odd disagreement takes place and you hear growling for a second and then they forget what the issue was and stop. Maybe the growling noise frightens the guy who did it. It's funny. They all have teeth now and like to chew feet and pant hems."
It sure sounds like Romper Room - puppy style! ;D
I REALLY wish I lived closer. :'(
I cant wait to see pics of your new "baby" at home.
Yeah, Me too!
My breeder is getting a new camera today so there should be some new pictures soon.
I will post when I get some more.
Oh yes they are "little dogs now". They gallop around as best they can, bark, nip, chew on one another (I've got some aggressors and some wimps) and shake their toys. That's the funniest - I say "Shake that toy.....Shake that toy!" and the little pups shake it so hard they fall over and the girls laugh. They certainly can pee - all over the place! Most poop falls on the newspaper area in the pen but they pee everywhere. Mine are eating now twice a day and I will up that to three times after the weekend. They also go without momma Wigeon through the night now and are very quiet and wait for their dog food breakfast. I tell puppy people that they learn so much each week - I mean in just 8 short weeks they go from a blind and deaf newborn to a bounding puppy ready for their new family!
Our gang is eating four times a day plus off Mama, Sharon.
