Happy Fourth of July from the Puppies!

July 4, 2008

We had a beautiful day out in the sunshine and grass. A nice day for photos. I had visions of taking a nice family photo with Robey, Vreni, and all the puppies nicely lined up……………..well, that didn’t work! 🙂 There is no way you are going to get five puppies to sit still, especially with the mama present! But we still got some good photos for everyone to see.

The puppies’ personalities have become more pronounced this week. They are so much fun to watch playing outside together. They are enjoying the extra space of the outdoor pen. The other dogs get to visit them more now that they are out there.

Everyone has grown tremendously since last week. “The Hulk” is still out in front of everyone else by half a pound. I had thought Red Collar Male was the same size, but when weigh-in time came this morning, Blue was still the larger. 🙂

The puppies’ weights this morning were:

Blue Collar Male: 6 pounds, 4 ounces

Red Collar Male: 5 pounds, 11 ounces

Daisy Collar Female: 5 pounds, 3.6 ounces

Green Collar Male: 5 pounds, 14 ounces

Orange Collar Male: 5 pounds, 2.1 ounces

Robey and Orange Collar Male feeling patriotic!

Robey is wonderful with the puppies. He is starting to enjoy them more that they are more active and playful. And they just love to play with their dad! He likes to gently take their whole heads in his mouth when he plays with them. He never presses hard on them and they all seem to like to be slobbered on in this way. 🙂

    Great pictures!
    The “puppy combat” is so funny! Reminds me of what our cats do when they play. 😀

    Happy Fourth on the fifth! 🙂
