Tired Puppies
The pups are starting to walk.  They now crawl out of their crate and explore their puppy room.  They are still pretty wobbly on their feet.  Chili gave Sam a bit of scare today.  I took Rio to get her OFA hip x-rays today.  When I left the pups were out exploring their room.  Sam beat me home and went upstairs to check on the pups.  1, 2 ... where's 3?  He looked in the crate, and under the bedding, no Chili.  He could hear Chili but couldn't figure out where he was then he saw him, behind the crate.  Apparently Chili got a little carried away with his explorations.  Sam rescued him and he was happy to curly up with his siblings to take a nap after his adventure.

Getting Big
The pups are getting big.  We took the pig rails out of the whelping crate so they will have more room and be able to start exploring more.  They are taking advantage the extra space even.  I have seen both Pep and Sophie crawl out of the crate to pee.  We are going to try to litter train them so now that they are crawling out of their crate to pee we will see if we can get them to go to the box to pee.  It should be an interesting week as they get better on their feet and start moving around more.

Our families came to visit last night for Christmas Eve.  The pups were all happy to be the center of attention.  They really love being held by people and will move toward a warm lap to sit in.  They were all worn out by the time everyone left.

Too Cute
All of the pups have started to open their eyes.  They should be fully open by Christmas.  All of the pups are also starting to get their feet under them and take some wobbly steps.  It won't be too long before the won't stand still for pictures.  Though they are so cute when they are sleeping I can't help but snap some pics.

2 Weeks Old
Chili is the first of the pups to start to open his eyes.  This isn't too surprising, he seems to be the most determined to do everything.  He has been working at escape all week and though he hasn't been successful yet, it is just a matter of time.  Sophie is just starting to crack her eyes open this evening.  I am sure Pep won't be far behind.  All the pups are starting to get their feet under them and attempting to stand.  They are very wobbly and can only take about 1 step before toppling over but it won't be long before they are walking.  This week should be fun.  The pups will finish open their eyese and start to learn how to be mobile, good thing Winter Break starts tomorrow!

Sunday Morning Exploration
Yesterday was a lazy Saturday morning, today is all about exploration.  Both boys have been climbing the walls, I think by the time they are two weeks old we will have to check for escapees.  Sophie is much more interested in investigating every nook and cranny of the pen rather than look for new worlds to explore, but I am sure once she has thoroughly explored the pen she will be right there with the boys looking for new things.  It always amazes me how much exploring they do before their eyes are even open.  If this is how active they are with their eyes closed, they will sure keep us on our toes once their eyes open.

Saturday Morning
The pups are having a lazy morning after a filling meal.  When they aren't stuffed from eating they are starting to do a little more exploring of their whelping box.  I have also seen them doing small stretches.

First Yodel
Sam and I spend time every day holding the pups and petting them.  Last night as Sam was holding Chili and petting him, he yodeled!  It startled both Sam and I since it was totally unexpected.  Chili can be very loud but is not usually too vocal.  Pep vocalizes frequently but they are quieter sounds.  When I hold him he makes quiet happy sounds, he is also vocal when nursing.  Sophie is the only one who does not really vocalize.

First Nail Clipping
The puppies will be one week old tomorrow.  The are growing like weeds and are already a pound and a half.  They also had their first nail clipping today because the were starting to scratch mama.  We have also given them each baby names, these are the names we call them so they are not red boy, black boy, and black girl for the next 10 weeks.  The pups new owners will give the pups their "grown up" names.  We have started calling the red boy Chili, the black boy Pep, and the black girl Sophie.

Just Like Thanksgiving
The red boy was so stuffed he just rolled over and fell asleep.  He is a funny little fellow, who likes sleeping with his head tucked under the pig rails.  His brother favors the corners.
