The puppies are almost five weeks old. I can hardly believe how fast they are growing. I am enjoying them so much right now. They stack up really nicely and they have wonderful personalities. They are a really sweet, loving group of puppies. The five boys are so sweet and affectionate. They have reached the age where they are starting to really respond to humans and they will follow me around when they are outside of their pen and climb into my lap to give me puppy kisses. Mandy is still very attached to her babies and is driving us nuts with her insistence that we wake up and allow her to nurse them at three in the morning.

I'm finally getting the website updated and pictures of the puppies posted. Eight puppies... what a beautiful litter. I spend so much time sitting by the whelping box cuddling and admiring the babies. Mandy is being a great mom, as usual. We had some difficulty the first day with Mandy deciding my fancy room thermometer should not be in the whelping box with the puppies. I would put it in.... she would pick it up and take it to the other side of the room and then return to the whelping box. We went through this a few times before returning to our old style thermometer, which is evidently less threatening to the puppies. At least Mandy must believe so, as she has let that one remain in the whelping box. All of the puppies are thriving and gaining nicely.
