Pups getting the hang of it

Today Annie got to show off her stuff to an interested family. She did great and I was very impressed by her easy going nature. Now if we can just figure out this Kong obsession! Really, though, she was friendly, open and happy to let them interact with her. I couldn’t have asked for more.

The puppies have really gotten the hang of eating, as the photos show. They just put their heads down and lap it up. It’s funny, but they lap for a bit and then get distracted and wander off. But if you put them back to the bowl they react like, “Say! Where’d this come from? Food! Yahoo!” and start lapping again, only to get distracted and wander off again. They have mastered the ins and outs of climbing the board that separates their bedding area and now when I enter the room it isn’t unusual to see one or two pups out wandering around, exploring the space. However, the room we’ve decided to use as the play area still scares them and they cry and cry when I put them in there to get them out of my hair when I need to clean their room. It will only be a matter of time before they are running into the room happily, you’ll see. But for now we are taking it slowly.

The worming meds seemed to have done their trick and (yuck alert) I’ve seen the results of the medication in their poop. Their bellies are softer and less ballooned out too. They probably feel more comfortable as well. I trimmed their nails at two weeks and already they need another nail trim. I’ll try to get on that soon. They are much more active so it is harder to keep them still enough to cut all those tiny toe nails.
