Thanks Katie. Here are the latest photos of the Quintessential Quintet
. First up, here's the lineup at 3 weeks old and each of them weighing in at around 3 lbs. (vs. 12 to 15 oz. at birth).
Next up is Mr. Red napping with Mr. Lion.
And keeping with a theme, Mr. Red dreaming about the rubber chicken circuit.
Ms Pink and Professor Plum doing something very unusual -- napping
And Big Blue and Mr. Red discussing Middle Eastern politics.
Finally, Ms. Lt Blue and Plummy with their favorite whelping assistant, Melanie Leon, following full exams by Mel's mom, Dr. Jane Leon.
Puppies at 3 weeks of age are just cutting their baby teeth. Momma Juneau is not happy about that!! We're also starting the weaning process by substituting 3 meals a day with milk replacer. By the end of the week, the teeth will all be in and we'll start moving them to a weak gruel mixture of milk replacer and moist puppy food and then we'll start adding in dry food blended into an increasingly thick gruel mixture until they're ready to eat almost solid food. We use a large donut-shaped bowl for that and it's a scream to see. Yes, I'll send photos.
Enjoy. We are. Who needs sleep anyway?
