We can't believe how much the puppies have changed over the last week or so!
The puppies look curlier and are developing that signature doodle rectangular shaped head. Purple and Orange seem to have a little bit of a narrow snout. Green, Black and Blue are the whitest coats. The others are a beautiful light cream. Orange, Green and Red are the curliest. Tan, Yellow and Red are the smallest. Blue and Brown are the biggest and surprisingly, the most mellow personalities. Green and Orange are a little bit higher energy. Both are very smart and love to be with people.
The puppies are experts at the dog door. When Paisley goes through the pen to get outside they all try to get through the door after her at the same time. Sometimes there will be five or six little tails wagging, stuck in the door. It's pretty hilarious. I'll have to get a picture of it one of these days!
While the puppies are used to 'going' outside, they will still require some potty training when they get to their new homes. We haven't allowed them access to the main part of the house so that they can learn to stop playing and run outside when needed. It won't take much work for them to figure it out but it will require some effort to get a reliably trained dog.
