3 weeks today and trying to eat moms meat !!!





This has been a big week for the little ones. They can see now and hear too. They recognize me and get very excited when I come to sit with them. Crawl in my lap and go to sleep. They like me to pick them up but want to lick my face a lot :-) I can feel teeth coming through now and it wont be long before Sadie does not want to be with them all the time.

A big change is they can pee and poo on thier own and are looking for a place to go. So I have wee wee pads and newspapers at one side of the whelping box. They do go and use them . Sometimes :-) They are trying out their voices and bark and growl while playing with each other. That is so funny to watch. They go to attack each other and it is a delayed reaction lol. The other pup is usually gone before the attack actually happens.

So wondering if I should start them on my goat milk mixture or leave it for 4 weeks because there are only 4 pups. Well as you can see Blue boy is ready to move onto meat !! He also got a taste of Sadies desert. Frozen fruit, She loves frozen fruit. Peaches,pinapple etc, So I throw a handful in with her dinner.

now the real work begins. Feeding and cleaning poop. Guess what I will be doing for the next few weeks.!!!
Tomorrow I will post their 3 week pictures. I have also uploaded several new pictures into their online album

How wonderful that they are coming to you now. We have been doing research on feeding raw and still have not taken the plunge. I did, however, buy a "roll" of ground raw chicken and the dogs loved it. I am hoping to learn enough to get started on raw soon. I was surprised at first to see the puppies going for it. But then I thought of course it is the natural diet for them, so why wouldn't they? LOL.

Thanks for all the great pictures!
