Well, the puppies have just turned 6.5 weeks old and are now weaned, pack-ordered and continue to be socialized. This weekend they went outside for the first time after having received their first round of vaccinations on Thursday. They loved it. "Oh, look daddy, lettuce!!!!" And so, they ate. And peed. And pooped. And played. And . . . well it just goes on and on.
We are really delighted, overall, with these puppies. They are very consistent and very pretty. They love new experiences and are using the tunnel and climbing toys we added to their play pens with gusto. They also seem to have lovely bodies as well as very pretty heads. At the moment, I can tell you which are the top picks but I couldn't tell you which are the bottom picks. They are just too much alike.
In birth order, here is Mr Red.
Followed by, Mr Teal:
And Professor Plum:
The delicate (no way) Ms Pink is next and she's probably the dominant in the litter.
Mr Green has really developed into a very nice puppy with a great body and very pretty headpiece.
And Ms Yellow is probably the pick of the 2 girls.
Mr Blue is, right now, pick of the boys but it's not by much.
And, Mr Lt Green is also quite nice overall.
This was a busy week for the puppies. A couple that is taking both a girl and a boy flew in from New Hampshire to visit them on Tuesday. They were visited by two buyers on Friday, two more on Saturday and two more today. The neighbors were having a party on Wednesday and 17 people came over to see the puppies and play with them. They loved it. So did the puppies
So, it's been an exciting week and the pups are handling all this activity with confidence and a joie de vive that is quite nice to see. May it always be so.
