The boys just love playing with the cat beds. Every litter I've had has loved this hearth as well. They always gravitate to it - play on it and then fall asleep on it. Q litter is no exception.

Quite the day. I picked my mom up at from the airport - she is visiting from Ontario - she met her "grand puppies" today. We brought them outside again today but it was quite warm and they only wanted to dig under the deck. Everyone is doing well.
At this stage in their life they explore their surroundings with great curiosity and also put anything they can find in their mouths. They like to chew things like table and chair legs and most especially fleshy tender bits such as ears, paws and fingers and often chew them way too hard. When they bite too hard, the other sibling will cry and move away and thus play ends and this is how they learn "bite inhibition. They learn to soften their bites so that play doesn't end. We humans also will cry out when the pups bite us, so that they know that they cannot bite us either. Sparkle will give a quick growl and show a few teeth to them if they bite her too hard. I also will growl at the pups if they are biting me too hard - they quickly ease off on the pressure.
They are highly entertaining now and I am enjoying watching them tussle and play. They are getting into snarl fests with each other - vying for "top puppy" spot.
The pups enjoyed their first meal of goat's milk. They did very well, lapping instead of snorting the milk and no one walked through the dish. Sparkle cleaned up afterwards. I will start adding yogurt and eggs in the next couple of days and then I will soak puppy kibble in the milk and get them started on solid foods.
