3.5 weeks old

The pups are really coming alive this week!  They are playing with each other and their toys, they growl and bark and are quite mobile.  Of course, life is still mostly sleeping, eating, and pottying but they are no longer sea slugs- instead they are getting their own personalities.  They are nice, solid pups for 3.5 weeks old and will be getting a number of visitors over the next few weeks in order to get comfortable with strangers.
Mr. Green has such a sweet, chunky face

2 weeks old

The pups are growing like weeds.  They have eyes and ears open and are starting to growl and play with each other.  They still walk like little drunken sailors and are quite amusing to see fall over when they try to walk at more than a snails pace.  We added toys to the whelping box this week and the pig rails are coming out so they don't sneak out of the box...yet.  Now that they are two weeks, they are being carried around the house and can spend some time hanging out on a blanket in the living room getting used to the normal sounds of a busy household. 
 Miss Blue loves to snuggle under the pig rails- she is getting in one more snooze before they are taken out to make more room for the growing pups. 

 The pups are starting to realize there is a world outside the box and are getting curious.
 Miss Yellow may be the smallest pup (by only a few ounces) but she is mighty as she topples her bigger brother- mr purple
 Red decides to snooze while the other pups try to wrestle
 The pups are quite mobile and shoot around the box but it is still a half crawl/half walk with a lot of falling over
 Nap time- the pups tire out very quickly and go from playing to sleeping in a matter of seconds
 Ooof- you are heavy!

 Aahh- nice and warm and comfortable
 Love the fat, shorty muzzle  
 So peaceful
 White wants a better spot
 Red gets displaced
 Bianca takes a well deserved rest 
 The pups get geometrical
I love the forehead to forehead snooze of purple and blue
