Trixie Pups Getting More Mobile

"Trixie's" pups are getting more mobile by the hour! Their 'output' is also, and mom can't keep up with all of it ... smile ... oh the joys of raising pups! So yesterday I figured it was time to break down their whelping box area so they could start to travel to a potty area. They took to it well, travelling back and forth to their papered area (can't see it in this pic but the tri girl in the front of the photo is headed there).
They will be 4 wks on Saturday and with their puppy teeth starting to show it is time to add puppy mush to their diet. Oh, should that be fun, as they plow thru their first meal! They will now learn the clink clank of their metal feeding bowl and we'll really get to know what kind of 'voices' they have.
"Mom's" job, is just about over, now we humans have to kick into high gear in all aspects of raising them.

Trixie's pups are adorable, and I like your puppy area, looks very safe for the puppies, what type is it.

Hi Linda .. this puppy area is actually 2 400 Vari kennels placed end to end with long large screws through the holes where the door would be secured to hold them together. The side you don't see, the crate top with the vented area has their potty papers. Within a few hours of their new set-up it was funny watching them 'think' they could jump/spring down off the raised area!

I am enjoying following the growth of your precious pups. I have been a sheltie household for over twenty years and it's fun to see things from the breeder's perspective. And here I thought training one puppy at a time was difficult! LOL.
