The puppies have learned to sit up and are starting to walk on all fours rather than crawl. Their eyes are open and they are much more alert.
Their heeler markings are becoming more distinct. Gray (or blue they call it, but it doesn’t look blue to me) is starting to show through the white in their fur.
The one yawning here is the largest pup. A male who has pronounced heeler markings. #6 – the runt – is right next to him. You can see that the little place on his head is healing nicely and now has fur.
Though they are more awake and alert, they still spend a lot of time sleeping all in a pile.
Grizzly has been very curious about those little creatures, and Molly has let him a bit closer.
He only got to meet one nose to nose though when Molly was outside. She would not have approved.
They are all much more alert and mobile. They have also started growling and barking – which is really hilarious. This little one reminds me of Molly.
It seems there is always at least one asleep on its back with the paws in the air.
Since they are getting so much more mobile, Rick built them a little better box to keep them corraled in. I wonder if the Craftsman people know their tool boxes are multi-purpose and can be used as puppy crates? The whole gang slept through the remodel.
Eye patch (there is also an ear patch) licking his sibling – they have just started doing that too.
So that is the latest on the puppies. Three are now spoken for, so if you want a puppy for Christmas you need to get on the list!
