Piper's Crew @ 4 Weeks Old

OH boy they are beginning to come when called, full of playful energy (20mins), and so super sweet!
This has been a quieter litter so far (don't tell them I said that).  
All the puppies have taken to wet food and we will start decreasing the moisture this week.  
It is the beginning of MANY adventures for these pups now as we enlarge their play pen, start one on one training, and continue our socialization. :)

There is always one in every bunch.  This week Iclyn refused to sit in the photo prop chair AT ALL so I let her lay across the rocking horse.  Still doesn't seem impressed with the ideal.

 Frost is so gorgeous.  Pictures really don't do him justice!  He is our biggest puppy in the litter this week and packs that much sweetness too!  

Here is Jack looking So Serious, and seriously Handsome!  He is a favorite here I am not going to deny that.  Jack is mellow like his brother but can be brought to life quickly by a tug toy.

 What a hard little stinker to photograph!  This is why I started doing videos too.  It is so hard to capture the true puppy by making them sit in a chair and hold still.  It seemed more like detention for them this week. ;)

Oh Bianca!  I am Loving her eyeliner coming on both of her little rims, she will be striking for sure.  Bianca has some spunk and a strong desire to play with both siblings and humans.

Flurry is a flurry of activity when she is away.  She wants to be where the action is and letting us know the 'game is on'.

1 Week Old {Duke x Abby}

Week one is full of eating, sleeping, and growing.  We do early neurological stimulation exercises with the puppies and a good share of just cuddling as we adore their newborn selves.

3 Weeks Old & Getting Fun! (Duke x Piper)

These 6 little rock stars have been coming alive in our living area.  
They can hear now and enjoy practicing their play growls and barks when you come to their pen.
They had their first mush meal today and have been using the potty grass pretty well for a few days so far!  
I am So Proud of them!
