Today the puppies are 4 weeks old and so we go into our 5th week.
They now are in a re-arranged nursery and have their whelping box to play in, a crate and bed to sleep in and lots of space to run around in and make lots of mess!
Lots of little teeth have been breaking through and quite often the puppies can be seen gnawing on a puppy panel
They have a collection of toys to play with, their favourites being the cardboard tube and the yogurt pot!
The puppies have gradually been getting used to solid food and are now on 4 meals a day. They start with weetabix for breakfast, have Purina puppy food for lunch, scrambled egg at tea time and more Purina in the evening.
All the puppies are now over 3lb in weight and are very steady on their feet. They come running when called and love to use us as a climbing frame when we sit on the floor with them.
