Videos and weaning

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Bummer!!! I tried to take a video of Cricket and the pups on the playground yesterday and my video camera died! I guess it’s back to still pictures.

Weaning has started and it’s been a bit bumpy. Cricket won’t stand up for herself. She is allowing them to bully and harass her, nursing whenever they want. In the day time her solution is just to run away. But at night when they are put to bed and have less space she gets cross with them and barks for me to come rescue her, thus putting the weaning on me. It has taken almost all week to figure out a solution that will keep all parties happy and quiet all night. But none of them are the best with regard to the pups future manners and interactions with other dogs. I’m hoping Cricket will learn to tell them “No” when running away stops working. (They are getting very mobile and adventurous and can follow her anywhere in the dog yard now) It’s not good for them to learn they can get away with whatever they want. Bullying and being rude is wrong no matter what species you are.

Puppies playing

Here is a very short clip of the puppies playing.

Two weeks

The puppies are getting huge! They are the size of four week old pups. When I weighed them on Sunday the girl was 3lb 3oz and the boy was 3lb 5oz. Yesterday I was working around their house and made an abrupt noise. I heard one of them bark! It was adorable, it sounded like a little girl saying, “yow!”. When their eyes start to open, which is happening now, their ears start to open too. They have started to play too. Baby growls are so so cute! I tried to catch them on video but I missed it by seconds. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Here is the video I did get.

I got to play with my last two puppies today. We romped around on the greening grass. This evening they got to go with me to the park. They didn’t know what to make of my running around after a basket ball. When I went on the swing they almost made themselves dizzy try to follow me. It was hilarious to watch! Before we left they got to meet a very nice Shepard mix. The park trip was too dark for pictures but I got some of the afternoon romp.
