Ladies and gentlemen, we have weaning!
The puppies are already 5 weeks old! Can you believe it?
They actually started the Big Wean five days ago and *all* took to it immediately. They still want their doggie mamma, of course, but now they also yipyipyip for me when I come into the room.
Ain’t nothing like puppy yips.
Today I’m thankful for:
Everything going smoothly so far with the puppies. I had read all the scary stuff about what *could* go wrong, and I have to admit I was more than a bit nervous when it all started really happening.
As neither P nor I have ever done this before, I count us very lucky that the first five weeks have fallen into place nearly by themselves.
It’s a lot of work to be sure, but the excited cries when they see me, those adorable eyes staring up at me, the puppy growls and barks while playing with one another, the quiet moments of fuzzy belly-stroking–they make it more than worth it.
