WEANING May 24, 2007

General News
We are officially starting to wean puppies at 4 weeks of age. They are getting one meal a day that has free range chicken, organic goat yogurt, Libby's pumpkin and Puppy Gold. The mothers are still contributing the rest. I'll be adding the second home cooked meal in a couple of days. The puppies have had no problems knowing exactly what to do with food! They have moved into the living room for the afternoon so they can watch animal planet and listen to the vacuum, dishwasher and pans clanking. They are also beginning to interact with the other resident dogs through the x-pen. Shasta is forever trying to get in to play. She is so fasinated with these little dogs! They are stay awake much longer and want to be entertained, music, toys, holding (lots of interactions). It is a wonder I can get anything done! It is time to start visiting!
