These little pups are growing and learning right on track. They are still the most mellow, quiet litter I've ever had! They are really very similar in temperament. We usually have one or two that are clearly more outgoing and a couple that are clearly more reserved but these little pups are all easy going and content! We don't seem to have any curly coats--they are all straight-ish or wavy.
Puppies had a couple 1st today. They all have teeth and were ready to be introduced to solids. In the video you can see them eating solids for the first time. They are learning to use the bathroom outside of their sleeping and playing area and are becoming successful at it. Not much difference separates these puppies in size. Between the boys there is just 9oz that separates the largest from the smallest. Boys

I took a few snap shots of the litter out experiencing some more 1st today. They first felt grass beneath their paws today and felt the warmth of the bright sun. Today was the first time they stepped outside.
We will be updating you again next week after we take pictures of them individually at 5 weeks. Expect a new update sometime Thursday or Friday.
Puppies became much more active this past week. Everyone's eyes are fully opened and they are now walking around fairly stable on their feet. They still sleep most of the time but are beginning to be a little more active.
Paisley's puppies are growing by leaps and bounds. They've doubled in size! Half of them have begun to open their eyes this week. They will all have wide eyes by the end of the week. They have begun to make a few little whiny barking sounds and are getting up on their feet to move around (still very wobbly). For the most part they are all very content just to sleep and eat. Mom is still doing a great job with them and really is a wonderful dog mom. Next week we will take individual pictures at 3 weeks of age and again at 5 weeks to help aid you in the picking of your sweet little puppy.
I just wanted to show you how difficult it can be to get a good shot of all 9 pups. This is typically what 95% of our photo shoot turns out like. We have to work very hard to get shots like the ones above. It takes and lot of time sitting a waiting for everyone to calm down!
