Hazel’s first litter is 5 weeks old today! They are all growing beautifully and we are starting to see their personalities develop. It’s incredible how, somewhere between 5 and 6 weeks, the puppies begin to really show their true selves. While they are sure to come into their own even more in the next week, here are the things we’ve started to see so far.
Blue is a relaxed boy who is happy to snuggle. Earlier this week we had visitors and he fell asleep laying in the hood of a sweatshirt, nice and cozy and warm.
Orange boy is just gorgeous! His white markings are perfectly proportioned with a little pink, specked nose. He is perfectly happy to snuggle, but also excited to play with his siblings.
Green boy is a quiet guy who is starting to figure out his place among his siblings. Now that everyone has been getting up and being more active, he’s a little more reserved and likes to watch before jumping in. It’ll be interesting to see how his personality continues to develop over the next week.
Yellow girl is a leader. She is spunky, ready to play, and bats her front paws in an attempt to get your attention. She is happy to be around all her siblings.
Pink girl is the other red pup with white markings. Overall, she seems happy to play with her siblings, socialize, or snuggle up and fall asleep with anyone who comes over to visit. She loves getting attention and especially relishes in chin scratches.
Purple girl is an absolute beauty! Affectionately nicknamed “Cowgirl" due to her markings, she resembles her grandma Dolly and her personality is also very similar. She is silly and loves a good belly rub.
