Over this past weekend, the puppies turned four weeks old. They sure are getting fat and sassy! They recognize our faces and voices now. Another week and they should be totally weaned from Mama. She will be happy about that!
The only bad part is that Mama is no longer cleaning up their messes. Going through a lot of paper around here!
At this age it is important that they start experiencing new things. But gently. Different floor textures, different kinds of toys, different noises. But no loud noises at this point. To help them along, they got to go on a field trip to the big, scary front porch!
Four of them took to it like troopers. The first time they experienced the sun and a breeze. Two of them were not too sure at first but quickly decided that all that room to run was a good thing. One would not leave my side. Gonna have to work on that. We certainly do not want to raise any insecure puppies!
So, as best I could with the rambunctios lot, I took some pictures and a couple of videos of their first outing. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
