I’m starting to really see personality. And I love that they are so close together. I’m not seeing any outliers. Some litters I can pick out just by their bark because I hear it so much or what they are doing. This litter is a tight group with not much difference. Today they got moved to beside glass door so we can start potty training as soon as weather breaks. I also introduced small crates abd they love them so far. This is what I seen today. Green and pink are very similar. Quiet. On the low key side. Wine is my happy tail girl. Always happy and smiling and wanting to get in my lap. Blue loves to explore. He is not afraid to go off and see everything. He actually prefers to investigate. Yellow and red are similar that they are playful with toys. Purple is the silly girl like mom. Brown and white both are similar that they are easily going. Middle of the pack.
I’ll post more this week.
I always start each new litter the blog the same way. To prepare you. I am not a writer. Math is my back ground. So creative writing such as this is fun for me but may not be fun to read. My spelling and punctuation is that of a middle school student. So I promise to share lots of good information with you if you can struggle through my writing.
It’s week 4-1/2. I did introduce food a little early only because they seemed to thin out fast and I’m thinking moms milk is drying up soon. They have done well with the mash. It’s food softened. But this allows me to start to see personality. Who eats first. Who is not afraid. I did do a socialization today with adults and kids and it went very well. What I have noticed so far. And please if I don’t say anything about a certain color, that’s not bad. It just means I didn’t pick anything that stood out today. So blue let me do anything to him. He needed a hinny wash and usually they scream when you dunk their butt under the faucet and he could have cared less. He then snuggled up in someone’s arms and was content. Wine was very eager to meet everyone. Every time I noticed she was greeting someone else. Just going from person to person and introducing herself. Purple was very sweet. She really interacted with the visitors. The rest enjoyed going to someone and getting in their lap and laying down. Pet me, love me. I did not notice any hesitation today. They all seemed eager to meet people. No one got back in the pen to get away. As each day passes I will write more. I will notice more. And they will grow and change.
I do have to let everyone know I’m pushing back pick up by one week. I changed my vet appt to the following week so it could be with the vet I prefer at the practice. I apologize for this. But I really prefer this vet for puppy exams. He is very good. But by switching to this vet his first available appt was not till following week.
