Three Week Old Puppies!

As you can imagine, it’s hard not to spend all day, every day, with the puppies.
Why are puppies so darn cute?



The pups are now living outside in a covered dog pen with a wooden floor. They have a big dog house with a ramp at their disposal. The daytime temperatures have been in the 70’s and even 80’s (warm for us) so, they spend the entire day outside the house. In the evening, I put them inside after they eat. The nighttime temperatures have been in the upper 40‘s or 50‘s.

At three weeks, they are learning to walk and play. They are still nursing, but their first “solid meal” of moist canned puppy food was big hit at 3 weeks old.

Olivia is doing very well and hasn’t lost any body weight. She enjoys her three to four meals a day. The puppy pen is set up so that she can step over a 10 inch barrier and join the eleven youngsters any time she chooses. Likewise, she can escape from them!

They are adorable and I venture to say you probably are not working at your usual efficient speed because they are such a distraction... Nothing cuter than a puppy unless it is watching a ball of fluff grow to a speed machine running the line to Nome... Keep those videos coming... we love them.

Wow!!! What a beautiful crew of puppies you have! Miss Olivia is soooooooooo good with them! You can see different traits in some of their personalities showing already! I feel like extending my arms all the way to your kennel and hugging all those babies and their mommy! She is so strong and yet, so delicate with them! Go Big O !!!

Aliy, thanks for the videos. The puppy pile was adorable. We loved watching the puppies especially "our" pup Commando. A trip to Two Rivers next summer maybe in our future.

Watching them stumble around reminds me of myself in the morning - yawn ....

Soooo entertaining and engrossing. How do you get anything done? I'd be puppy watching all day.
