They grow up so fast.
18 days old – experimenting with solid food, wobbling around, noticing each other and starting to play.
4 weeks old – reliably eating solid food, running, scampering and playing hard with each other.
Mom doesn’t want to nurse anymore – sharp teeth and claws. But when she does, she stands up and makes them work for it. The sessions are very short.
Diana was the first pup born. She’s been a bit of a loner. If you’ve watched the puppy cam, you’ll notice that she often sleeps by herself. She’s also been the first to try new things – first to open her eyes, first to eat solid food.
But at this point, she’s right in there with the rest of them.
They grow up fast!
