Their eyes are wide open now and their tiny ears are just starting to perk up. It is hard to believe that their ears are SO small as puppies and then get so large as adults. We noticed this week that their personalities are just now starting to peek out. We are really waiting to decide which one we want when we can see more of their personalities. We figure with a family our size with young kids we need a frisky dog to keep up.
The girls were much more interested in the pups than the boys. The boys all ran outside with the breeders son to play with their lite sabers. Casey couldn't wait to hold a pup.
This one is Cortney's favorite. He really is a cutey too. I like the white nose, he looks like a bandit. It is just so hard to choose between them. We also pay a lot of attention and love on the third pup too so don't think we leave him out.
Casey really is good with the pups. We practice being nice to animals and proper petting/holding with stuffed animals. She has come a long way from when she was two. The father of the pups came in the house and she kept carrying him outside. She was very gentle with him and he was very patient with her. A good sign on both sides, hopefully a patient father (and mother) will mean a patient pup/dog.
When it was time to leave we put them all back in the box so they could eat and nap. They started trying to play with each other. They were so uncoordinated and kept rolling over on their backs, they hated that. It was so much fun to watch and so cute. Next week they will be much better at it.
We have friends that got a pap pup from the same breeder several months ago. We found out that our pup and their pup have the same mother and father so they are brothers. We plan on getting the dogs together as soon as possible so they can bond. Then we can trade babysitting when we go on vacation.
Next week I will be sure that my camera battery is charged. I want to get pictures of the parents too.
