A very happy 6 week birthday to this eye-catching litter!
We are loving every minute we have with this litter and the weeks are flying by. The milk bar continues to be provided by Tulip who is an excellent mom.
We had a wonderful time outside in between the rain showers this past week. The pups are confident and didn't seem nervous at all. Immediately they were at ease in their new surroundings, sniffing and exploring this new exciting adventure. Each time they go out, they explore further into the backyard but are always under the watchful eye of Tulip.
This litter continues to be very quiet, which means they are very happy and content. They are all approaching 10 pounds in weight and it amazes me from one day to the next how quickly they grow up. Mom begins weaning the pups and teaching them discipline. Through puppy play-biting, the pup learns bite inhibition and socialization with its siblings. Normal behaviour at this age. Six-week-old puppies still have a lot to learn from their mother and littermates.
Having their mother and siblings by their side helps them develop confidence and understand how to react to everything they encounter. It results in a puppy with a greater level of emotional stability and an easier temperament.
As they play, sleep, and snuggle with their mother and littermates, they also get used to being touched and jostled. In addition to feeling safe and comforted, being around mom and their siblings is essential to their development.
