Five weeks already - Outside time! May 30
The puppies are fully weaned now and all eagerly gather round the chow when I put it down for them. Today was sunny and pleasant without being too warm so we brought the pups out for their first experience in the great outdoors. After their initial consternation, they enjoyed following the boys around the playset (not as big of fans of grass yet though!)
Maple - female, 2 lb. 0 oz.
Stick - male, 3 lb. 0 oz.
Fig - male, 2 lb. 13 oz.
Hedge - male, 2 lb. 9 oz.
Pine - female, 2 lb. 5 oz.

Welcome Little Ones! April 25
Jade did a great job with her first litter! There are 5 beautiful parti-colored babies (3 male and 2 female). Jade is keeping her pups clean, warm, and well-fed. They look like a bunch of tiny fat cows and couldn't be cuter!
