DAY #37

Good Morning! We all woke up, all of us in a super good mood and playful. It is sunny and soon to be in the 30’s. We opened the kennel windows for crisp morning clean air and it felt so good! Last night my husband and I sat in the romper room and let the…

DAY #36

Today was a new developmental as well as learned shift in behavior with resources. We had communal sharing of bones, bones on the ground, puppies freely walking around, and no resource guarding. Every day for a week now, we have bone chewing time in the afternoon after lunch time and before nursing. Today the feeling…

DAY #9

Well even with all of the full-contact-nursing and moving about I think I captured the long nails, so you can see what one week of growth looks like. They are almost all trimmed – but this is a good reminder how fast things grow. At this wee young age, toe nail clippers work great to…
