Lucy's pups - 5th week of life

More fun for the puppies this week. They are playing vigorously with one another and the adult dogs. Magick and Lucy have formed a puppy care coalition and often rescue one another if all 4 pups decide to go for a single adult dog. Teamwork!

We introduced potty pads this week and the pups are about 70% on using them on their own. WOO.

Aunt Lora sent a fun cow toy and a balance board. The pups race across the balance board - agility is in your future!

It finally warmed up enough for the pups to go outside, so they are spending some outside time each day. The first day they were a little overwhelmed during the first 2 minutes or so. Now they are trying to figure out how to get up and down the big step in and out the door. Also, they can RUN now.

Another puppy potluck gave the pups a chance to visit with new people, and the owners of the pups to see their babies again this week. I think the new owners really enjoy getting to visit the litter.

Without further ado: This week's installment of photos and a nice 3 minute video of PLAY-PLAY-PLAY!! If you have time, watch the video all the way to the end. Magick employs an ingenious trap for one of the pups. She will be 12-years-old in April and I am so grateful to be getting all this video of her playing with the puppies. Recent events have taught me how much I will treasure those videos one day....

Rob: If I can not reach the toys, I will just chew through the metal bucket!

This is why we call him Robert The Savage!



Rye offers to help: Here, let me fix your desk.... Um, thanks.

What happens after a puppy potluck?
Rob falls asleep in the leftovers.




This made my entire day. It's not in focus, it's a terrible photo.
But it *IS* Rye (33 days) and Magick (11 3/4 years) play bowing about 6' apart.



What happens after all that play?
Rye needs a soft pillow.




Can you guess which puppy wants to stay with us?



Here is your puppy porn for the week:

I think Rye has the best markings! (I like traditional!)

Well, they all do of course! Mama didn't raise no fools!

Thanks regarding the post. It's good to listen to one other individual's opinion. I certainly agree with exactly what you are saying regarding the data. Please keep up the nice work as I'm definitely going again to read more.
