The puppies have began eating solid puppy food this week. They love to play in their water bowl. They all love to be held and play with the children.

"Austin (my son) came home last night from Boy Scout camp and could not believe how much they changed in just a few days. He said "Hey! They're growling and so mobile". They have began that adorable little playful growl. They are wrestling with and chewing on each other.
There are some really blue eyes. Some of the boys are really laid back and one of the girls is very boisterous. I plan to get colored collars to keep up with the personalities that are developing so quickly.
They are a lot of fun. They are getting lots of hands on loving and care.

All eyes are open. They are all getting quite mobile and have begun to play with each other. Ears of brothers and sisters seem to be a favorite attraction today.
Wendy told me today that one of the females will be kept for their daughter Ashley.

Austin left for Boy Scout Camp this morning. Peppy seemed to say "OK! If my boy's not here, I'm done with 100% clean up in the potty department. I demand some help here." She has been just incredible to have done all that she has for this long. Peppy is happy to be getting all the help she needs keeping up the clean up of her brood. The puppies have had their first baths today and they were mixed on their approval ratings. Several relaxed and slept in the warm water; some fought like they were 40 pound pups; and the rest were noisy, but cooperative.

"Final number: 8 - 4 boys, 4 girls - all black/rust. Last one was born at 2:30 a.m. Peppy did great. What a momma! She is keeping herself and those puppies the cleanest I've seen. She loves those puppies and is literally beaming with joy.
