33 DAYS OF AGE (4 WEEKS AND 5 DAYS) - WOWIE, time flies!

Today the pups went outside. It's their first time outside altogether. They were introduced to the jungle gym, the cat tunnel, and some more toys, plus grass, and tons of distractions like trees, rose bushes, the back porch, us chasing them around and around, ... They are still a bit young yet to really show off but it's time to peek their curiousity and introduce them to their world!! ALL play with toys in their pen in the house - all carry, shake them, and once in a while there will be a bit of tug, and then they sleep curled up on them. They love the little pink ball - like to push it around and try to bite it. I put the syrup lid in with them last night and you could hear them banging it around. We like our pups to pick up leather, plastic, wood, metal, cloth, whatever so we expose them to many things. This way when they get to your house, they get into everything you didn't want them to get into (LOL). Actually it's a great help if you are going on to do obedience, tracking, agility, fly ball, ... We have one very loud squeaky toy, and they just don't care about that noise at all. (Don't worry we have singing, walking ones to introduce them to later on so it will be great fun and we'll video for you). Noises don't bother them one iota (vacuum, tv, other dogs, ...) They come to voice readily (normally Bree is the first one to come). These 5 poopers (and I use that term appropriately and applicably) eat 3 shared cups of soaked dog food a day. Barrett wins the tubbytuba award, and it appears he'll also attempt to eat all kinds of toys and objects too from the pictures below. Enjoy the pics!!!!

 

REN THINKN "WHAT DO I DO NOW?"

 

LENNA IS A SWATTER

 

GESA GOES OVER

BREE WANTED THE TUG ROPE BUT WAS TO LAZY TO MOVE TO GET IT - IT MISSED HER MOUTH (Steph was swinging it to her), BUT SHE WAS READY - LOL

 

BARRETT GOES FOR THE BELL

 

REN RUNS OUT OF THE UPTEENTH SCENE

 

LENNA ROLLS OVER TO PLAY

 

REN SAYS LEATHER FEELS GOOD ON HER GUMS - YOU WILL KNOW WHEN THESE LITTLE WHIPPERSNAPPERS GET YOUR FINGERS (YIKES - TEETH NOW!) AND THEY LOVE PANTS LEGS AS WELL

 

LENNA PEEKS THRU THE GRASS - SHE IS DOING HER BEST "I'M INNOCENT POSE" - NOT MUCH BLUE IN HER EYES BUT SHE SQUEAKED SOME IN THERE

REN "AHA" MOMENT AND GOES UNDER

 

GESA SAYS WHY ARE YOU TAKING MY PICTURE WHILE I'M STUCK IN HERE and WHAT KIND OF NOISE ARE YOU MAKING TO MAKE ME LOOK AT THE CAMERA

BARRETT ON MISSION #100

 

LENNA AND BREE RESTING (SUN GOT THEIR COATS SKEWED IN THIS PICTURE - THEY ARE LOVELY BLUE MERLES)

 

REN TAKING IN HER WORLD AND WONDERING WHY I'M GOING TO RETRIEVE GESA FROM THE TREE ACROSS THE YARD

 

BREE AND THE BABY BLUES

 

GESA TRIES TREE HUGGING - WE'LL GET HER A PICKET SIGN NEXT

 

LENNA SAYS THIS GLOVE IS TOO MUCH WORK

 

GESA CHEWS ON THE LEATHER - THIS ONE IS FROM AN OLD SET I NO LONGER USE - LATER WE WILL TOSS IT AND SEE IF THEY GO GET IT - THE LEATHER IS ALWAYS POPULAR

 

GESA & BARRETT (BARRETT IS LISTENING TO STEPHANIE TALK - GESA SAYS I TAKE TOO MANY PICTURES)

 

BARRETT FINDS ANOTHER ONE HE WANTS TO CHEW

BREE, YOU'LL HAVE A HARD TIME PICKING UP THAT SYRUP LID WITH IT TURNED THAT DIRECTION

 

Sprinkler time so we had to end this session. There will be many more to come. So stay tuned.

 

BARRETT WINS THE HANGING OBSTACLE CURIOSITY AWARD - (lately he's been trying to rule the roost with the girls - trust me, the girls hold their own nicely and if they don't I appear on the scene)

GESA WINS THE RUNNING OFF TO THE ROSE BUSHES OR THE TREE OR THE PORCH AWARD - (she is unafraid to explore on her own but trust us she loves cuddling with people too)

BREE WINS THE SYRUP CUP INTEREST AWARD (I have one syrup cup in their pen in the house now and trust me, it gets clanked quite often - later I'll take out 3 syrup lids and put a treat under one and see which pup uses their nose to find the treat - very fun! And I love a pup with a tracking nose!)

LENNA WINS THE SWATTING AWARD AND SHE & BREE DID TRY THE CAT TUNNEL SORTA HALF IN HALF OUT (Actually Gesa tries to high five also periodically)

REN WINS THE UNDER AND LET-ME-SIT-HERE-AND-THINK-A-BIT AWARD - She started out a rebel in this litter, but she has really settled in nicely. She plays nicely with toys and is the closest in weight to hefty Barrett.
