I’m sitting here playing with the pups like I do every afternoon. We do a long play session in the afternoons. As you know I introduced them to outside already. I moved them to their bigger pen already. I did all this early because honest I’m not seeing much difference in each one. By now usually I can just look at the behavior and know who’s doing it. This is one of the most consistent litters I’ve ever had. As soon as I start to say something about one everyone is doing it. I just hung a toddler swing up to play and guess what they are all on it. No one is scared. They all follow me around. For the most part the blacks are still the ones that play with the toys more. They are more independent. The Merle’s cluster together and play together. From what I see the blacks are built like Marni. That stocky build. A heavy frame. The Merle’s seem to take after mom and have mire poodle build. A thinner frame. There is absolutely going to be a size difference. This is my guess.
pink 30, purple 28, white 22, yellow 23, green 25, grey 32, and blue 35. I’ve taken a lot into consideration when doing these guesses. The size of each ones frame and build. They are all chunky right now. Little butterballs. But the blacks are definitely fatter than the Merle’s. Once they stop nursing the weights will slow down a lot. Most likely that will be early next week when I send mom home. She is still playing with them so for now I have not separated her. I have lots of other girls to help socialize. And Becca and Marni love playing with the pups. Mom and the older ones just do a better job at teaching manners. Mom was scolding them this morning for too much biting I feel bad that I can’t give you guys more about personalities. They are just all so much a like. Not one has been scared of anything I’ve introduced. They all play and investigate. Not one runs when mom barks. No one is glued to my lap. They all play at the same time. I don’t have anyone that is up all night not sleeping. I also don’t have anyone that sleeps a lot. Blue and grey both do the Marni belly rub. Flip over to be petted. But a couple of the Merle’s have started that too. That’s a classic maggie move that Marni does too. If they are uncomfortable or think someone else is dominate they flip over on belly like look I’m not a threat. I retreat. Which I love instead of running or hiding. And it’s not really submissive behavior. It’s I’m no threat. Anyway I keep hoping I can tell you guys more but this litter is very much a like. I’m not seeing anyone extra mouthy either. They all have about the same demeanor. Over all blue has the least energy. He is a little more laid back than the rest. Grey likes to follow me when ever I walk. Orange and green are like twins. Playful. Always in a group playing. White and yellow both are observant. They notice when roxys puppy door is open and both love to go in a peak at the babies. Purple and pink always have a toy or are finding a toy to play with. They both love to carry something around. They love to be on the toddler swing playing.
