NOTE: Because we have five all black females, it’s a bit difficult to tell them apart. Therefore, we smear acrylic paint on the top of their heads to distinguish them.
Hard to believe that the puppies were born four weeks ago, but on Friday, November 17th, they hit the four-week mark.
It has been hard to get photos of them. All the good ones are when they are asleep because that’s the only time the photos don’t come out blurry. They are quick and move too fast!
Their personalities are definitely coming out and here’s a bit about them so far.
Blue is an active female. She loves exploring new places and we have to watch her when she has roaming time in the living room because she’ll be under the end table or across the room before we know it.
Like her older sister, Green is also quite active, but a little less so than Blue. She loves to cuddle and will seek me, my husband, or one of our three teenagers to get pets, love, and cuddles.
Pink, the runt, is still the smallest, but has definitely caught up significantly since she was born. She is very chill and at four weeks old after a good meal of meat mush, she walked away from her litter mates, found a soft folded-up sleeping bag and managed to crawl into it for a nice nap. See pic below:
Red is our litter’s only male. He will definitely make a great watch dog because for two weeks already, he has been barking out short warning woofs to his mother and litter mates when one of us go to get them out of their den. He likes to play, but also is fond of a good meal and a long nap. So far, he’s shown the best predilection for house training as he always go as far from where he eats and sleeps as possible.
White was the last born and is also more calm like her litter mate Pink. She definitely bigger, though. She likes belly rubs and will roll over for them.
