Lucy's pups - Week 2

The pups continue to grow at an alarming rate! Here they are today, 11 days old, with Lucy for size comparison.

So I admit it, I have a small preoccupation (or maybe, addiction) to puppy paws.

Well this week the pups have been up to all sorts of things. Today they started walking instead of just crawling, and Rave is working on opening his eyes. With my mom in town, we are taking plenty of photos. She brought them pink and blue baby blankets for Christmas.

Perhaps inspired by their gift, one thing the pups decided this week is they enjoy using their crate pad as a blanket. First they tunnel under, then they keep going until only their heads are peeking out and fall sound asleep.

Also, they all had their nails clipped for the first time. I'm fairly certain Lucy reckoned that to be my Christmas present to her (or at least to her teats).

The pups are also doing quite a lot of experimental barking and growling, and Stanley continues to make puppy noises back to them.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Merry Christmas, Rye!


Merry Christmas, Rob!



Merry Christmas, Rave!


Merry Christmas, Reba!

They are HUGE!! I guess that's what happens when there are only 4 and mommy has lots of milk. This next week will be the most fun when their eyes open!

Love! This is not helping my puppy fever at all. I do not need a BC. I do not need a BC.

@ Loretta - you are cracking me up. You'll have to fight Lucy's breeder for Reba.

@ Megan - well, BCs are easier than another kid ;)
