Tyme Pups ~ 5 weeks

Pups are now 5 wks old and waking/play time has increased to about 1 hour at a time. Since their mobility has increased it was time to introduce them to the hoop, right at floor level. They were quick to investigate this new 'toy', and not an issue to go through it.

Crate training begins .... 5 pups in a small crate
No one's told them yet that Plough---ing to the other end of the plate isn't better food ~ you just get your feet all wet!
Guess it's time to bring out the round metal food bowl ~ tomorrow ~ then they can't plough thru it as easily.

We have more play fighting happening, more standing over one another in a dominant posture ~ will try and get a pic of that ~ more things in their mouths!!! like dust bunnies when they're out to play!

In comparison, here's the white faced girl of Bliss (sire Whistler) 11 days younger. This litter is just starting to get up on their feet with a bit of mouthing. Sleep & nursing are still their priorities.
something furry to cuddle with ~ makes them feel secure

Clean, clean, change, mop, launder are the words of the day, even more now ~ mom isn't doing much of the work now!

What sweeties - I love the puppy pile in the crate :)
Their playpen is really nice & any chance do you remember what brand it is?

Absolutely adorable but I'm exhausted just looking at the pictures. My esteem for breeders has just gone up several notches! I hope your future families appreciate all the work, love and care that went into their new forever pet.
