|Fun times with our momma!|
“Private Dining”The dining experience in the whelping box has evolved from a free-for-all around a ring which is really just a round trough of sorts to private dining where each pup gets their own little bowl. The perceived competition means that they all eat their food at a reasonably fast pace, all except Mr. Crème Brûlée that is. He does eat most of it but then gets distracted by potential playmates around him. As he meanders off, the portly Mr. Blueberry Cobbler tries to clean up the abandoned bowl. Not so fast! We have rules here you know, so the bowl gets whisked away for Pepper to clean up.
The gang went for a car ride today to visit our friendly veterinarian and received great reviews as expected. They were even well-behaved in the car, but no doubt relieved to return to the safety and comfort of their whelping box with their mom anxiously awaiting their arrival. Pepper has been a stellar mom who dotes on her puppies, checking up on them frequently to attend to their every need. Since Pepper is so vocal, if she can’t access the pups readily enough, she conveys the message so that there’s absolutely no room for doubt.
It’s interesting to witness the pups’ growing independence as they venture into the far corners of the yard either on their own or in small groups. They love the rock garden and spend much of their time exploring every inch of it. When they’re not in full play mode, they love to cuddle and they all tend to roll over and expose their undersides for belly rubs. Needless to say, we’re going to miss giving them all that attention.
To our sweet little puppies who have given us so much love and happiness these past eight weeks, when we think of you, we’ll find comfort in knowing how much happiness you will bring to your new families. You have given us so many kisses and memories that we’ll treasure always. So long, little ones. We wish you all the best in your journey, but most of all, we wish you love.
That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”. See you next litter!
