7 weeks old

Here are a few pictures of the pups from the last couple of days. Two of the males went home to Tennessee this past week, and that leaves us with the 3 amigos!   Birdie, Macy, and Duke are getting plenty of attention that last few days.  They are starting to roam quite freely, and are getting very feisty!   Anything they can sink their teeth into is fair game. They can usually be found wrestling behind the shed, but most recently have been venturing around the neighbors fence and into their backyard!

6 week pictures

So you would have thought with there only being 5 pups pictures would  be easier?  I'm not so sure on that one. We spent a half hour just trying to get some shots of them yesterday, and every time we thought we were ready one would jump out. In the end we got a few respectable pictures, but I think the first one we snapped is probably the best.

As you can tell the pups are in pretty good hands!   Today was a beautiful day and the pups spent a good portion of the afternoon running around outside. The love to get into the landscape and tear up the grasses we planted this spring. It's a good thing those grow back every year b/c they've pretty much taken care of the for the fall!  We celebrated Maddy's 16th birthday today so there were plenty of kids and visitors. I love these days where we can sit out back and just watch the pups and dogs run.  As you can see from the pictures below they played hard enough that eventually they all found their spot in the yard to nap.  The 3 boys ended up under the gator, Birdie plopped down in the middle of the yard, and Macy snuggled up next to the mop by the shed.That time where the pups go home is approaching way too quickly!  Most of our next week's evenings will be spent enjoying the last moments we have with them!

5 weeks Old

These are a little late since yesterday was 5 weeks, but nonetheless they are pretty stinkin cute at this stage!   As you can see I went with a bigger crate, but that's obviously still not big enough for them!  Yesterday they got their first taste of real food, and boy did the love it. I've held them off a little longer than I usually do because of the smaller litter, and no shortage of food from mom! They are also now on wood chips vs  carpet which makes clean up a little easier for me!   Tomorrow they will receive their 5 weeks shots, and make a trip to the vet for a health check.  Time surely does fly! It's hard to believe in only a couple weeks they will be heading home!   I've really enjoyed watching them the last few days as they start to explore more and more.  Everyday they have a little less fear and try something new.  We've got a 12 week old male pup (Gunner) that likes to pick on them, but they are all starting to reciprocate the love.  I can't wait to see their personalities start to really show in the next couple of week!

5 weeks old!

K.K. loves her Birdie!
