4 Weeks old
The pups turned 4 weeks old yesterday.  They are enjoying exploring their environment.  Today they discovered the mirror in the bedroom and had fun playing with their reflection.  Tomorrow we will introduce them to the wobble board and see what they think.  So far they have taken the new things in their environment in stride.

Playing, Eating, Sleeping
All the pups are eager to eat their mush.  It took the boys a couple of feedings to catch on but they really like meal times now.  They are also playing more and more each day.  It is harder and harder to get pictures of them since they don't stay still much when they are awake.  They love people and will come bounding over when they hear our voices.  They also seek a nice lap to take a nap in after play sessions.  It will probably be harder and harder to keep this blog up to date the more and more active they get.

They've Got Legs and They Know How to Use Them, Sort Of
The puppies are up on their feet a lot more now.  They are also starting to play more.  I bought them a cat tunnel on Thursday.  It is small and fits nicely in the puppy room.  It also makes a crinkle sound.  The pups love it.  They like the sound, they like walking through it, they like sleeping in it.  We will keep adding things to their environment to help them get used to coping with new things and prepare them for the "real world".  They are also having visitors now.  They love when people visit.  They like being held and interacting with people.  From now until the pups go to their homes we will have their new families over to play with them and socialize them. We also have friends, family and co-workers all over to help socialize them so the pups have an opportunity to meets lots of people and get used to being handled and played with.

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.
