5 weeks old
The pups are no longer content to be pen puppies. They want to be out and about, taking in the world. The pups are enjoying this cooler weather and lots of time out in the backyard. They have had a couple of sessions in the wading pool and a professional photography session with a photographer friend. Weights at 5 weeks ranged from 6 lbs 3 oz (Sierra) to 6 lbs 15 oz (Vallejo). Some of the pups are currently over 7 lbs. The pups are loving their kibble, and since kibble is fed in the crates, they think crates are great places to be. Their noses are working well since they have sniffed out the kibble I store in the kitchen pantry. Yoko is rapidly weaning the pups. I have decreased her to 6 c per day (poor Labby girl) and she is drying up nicely. On Sunday, the pups will be making a big journey down to KY so that Paws With Purpose can take over the last two weeks of the puppy rearing.
