7 weeks old
The pupsters are 7 weeks old and demanding lots of attention and playtime. Most of them weigh 11-12 lbs. Summit has been the fussiest eater and is now the small boy at 10 lbs 13 oz. Denver is the big boy at 12 lbs 13 oz. Just this morning, the pups transitioned to eating hard puppy kibble (with a bit of water added immediately before feeding). The pups are eating 1 1/3 c each, and Juliette is down to 4 c per day. The big adventure this week was a trip to the Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility as part of puppy night for the Love on the Leash therapy dog program that great grandma Yuma belongs to. The pups were amazingly quiet in the car, and no one had evidence of motion sickness. The pups are also pros at going outside. They run as a herd to the backdoor to go outside to toilet and play, and all come back in when called. Good puppies! This week, I am starting to do individual evaluations to decide what programs the pups are best suited for, and identify what traits are coming out in this litter.
