Chapter 5 -- One Month Old

Wow!  Time flies when you're having fun!!!  I can't believe it's been a whole month since the puppies were born.  It's been such a wonderful four weeks and a huge learning experience.

The puppies grow and mature and find new ways to explore their world every day (maybe every hour!!!).  I love to open the crate and watch them "spill" out onto the floor, eager to see what's new in the world.  I love to watch them play together -- play bow, chew on various body parts, and play tag.  I love to watch, and listen to, them eat their puppy gruel (getting more solid every day).  And I love to watch them sleep, all snuggled up in a big pile of puppies, all content to be warm and together and sleeping.

In honor of their one-month birthday, I made sure to take pictures today.  It was an adventure!  But it was a lot of fun.  Happy Birthday Puppies -- we are so happy you are in our lives for this short, but amazing, time in your lives!!!

(Mama Lucy is doing well.  She is still nursing them and cleaning up after them.  She is a love bug, but she also has her faults -- counter surfing and fence climbing.  We are managing the issues and actively working on some training with her.  She will be a wonderful dog for an active family!)

They are all in there -- just some are choosing to hide from the camera!
