This week has been much easier on both Scarlett and myself. The pups have accepted puppy food as their main source of nutrition, however, they are still nursing when Scarlett allows it. The pups are loving the freedom of mostly being outside and not in the pen as much. As you will see below, they have a new favorite spot -- on a blanket under the picnic table. The clumsiness is still there but they are much more coordinated than last week. You will see lots of playful moments in the pictures below!
The pups' routine this week is to go outside in the morning, have breakfast, play, sleep on the porch and hang out for awhile outside (this week the temperatures have been in the 80's and 90's!!). Then in the late afternoon the pups are brought back to their pen. The early evening is spent back outside and starts with supper followed by more playtime and sleep/hang out time. After the pups are mostly settled, they are put back in the pen for the night.
