4 Weeks 3 days

Updated pics below, but I don't think they do them justice.

It looks like Mr Red will have two blue eyes as I got red eye from the flash, so I had to use back light correction! He's already quite a stunning young man :-)

This weeks is great as they're starting to constructively play with their toys, dragging them around and really starting to play raggy.

We're still persevering with toilet training them but it's so difficult when Chase gets in and starts to clean them up, which she is obsessive about, and they start to toilet all over the place lol But, 99% of the time they don't go in their whelping box and probably 60% of the time they go in the designated toilet area, which is great for such a young age. We hope this will help the new owners house break them easier.

They are certainly a feisty bunch!

4 Weeks Old

I can't believe the pups are 4 weeks old today!

We've had lots of visitors who totally adore them...of course lol and fingers crossed they all now have homes yay

I think it's all too easy to fall in love with a cute, cuddly puppy but for some that feeling is too much to ignore and they end up with a bundle of fur they hadn't previously considered - I know that's what happened to me with Chase and I have absolutely no regrets, in fact it was one of my better decisions.

I didn't mention in my previous post that worming is a seriously messy business! Some strange noises and shaking of heads came from the little guys lol

We're now moving quickly down the weaning road and all are eating nicely from their bowls. I'm now introducing slightly moistened kibble rather than liquidised and so far Miss Lilac, Miss Pink, Miss Yellow and Mr Purple have all started chewing. They're a clever bunch of puppies, so I've no doubt all the others will quickly learn.

Lots of interaction and play goes on now with each other, but blimey they're a rough bunch!

The girls went for a car ride to Aunty Laura's last week, which I can't say they were too impressed with. Darren had a major job trying to keep them all in their box - the box which only a few short weeks ago could hold 8 puppies and we could see the bottom, but now just 4 of them have totally outgrown it! They are growing so fast.
