Another Week Has Passed...

Where IS the time going! The puppies are 3 WEEKS OLD already! Every day they seem to learn more and more things and can handle their little bodies better and better. They’re not quite “drunken sailors” anymore. By the way, you guys… Mom’s been singing/humming a crazy little song under her breath ever since you mentioned that! Something about “What do you do with a drunken sailor, earl-i in the moooorrrrning…” Says it’s STUCK in her head!

Gimli (which Grammy sometimes calls "Panda" or "Oreo") is still around 3 lbs. and he is starting to eat very well the few times a day that Grammy helps me to feed them. I’m so glad that she is starting to do that because they are so BIG and did I mention TEETH… They DEFINITELY have TEETH now!!!

At the rate that they are growing, and with the TEETH... Did I mention, TEETH!... that they are getting (which my Dad aptly describes as little needles) I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I should quit nursing them sometime soon... I don't like to stay in the bed too much anymore because they seem to think I'm a teething toy!

Mercy is about 2 1/2 lbs. now. Dad says that he thinks she looks a lot like I did when I was a puppy.

Gracie is as big as Gimli . She is 3 lbs. too!

The last one to be weighed was little Neelix. He is a LOT littler than the others, and Dad and Grammy wonder if he is going to take after me and one of my other brothers that stayed pretty small. He's pretty fiesty, though, for his size!

The pups really love to play with their GrandPaw, and run right to him when they see him.

AND, would you look at these MOVES! Are those Corgi herding "hip checks" ALREADY, or WHAT!!!

I also think that I'm going to have to be careful what the kids look at on the Computer Monitor. I think they've been watching "Bitey Face" vids from Mango...

Ooooo... Guess What! When we went down on our mailrun today, their was a package from our friend, Sasha and her Mom. Mama OC said something about a "Baby Shower," but I don't understand THAT... I keep my babies totally clean. Why would they need a shower?!

Ohhhhh... now I understand. Grammy explained that a "Baby shower" is when someone sends gifts for the babies! Isn't THAT COOL! I can hardly wait to open it and see what's inside!!! THANKS, Sasha and Your Mom!

Khyra... It's ALL MANGO's Fault!!! I wonder when he was a pup and fell over if there were little earthquakes... LOL Dott

Those kids are such vigorous little suckers, I don't blame Dott for wanting to stop nursing. Sheesh, once the teeth come's time to cut back, ouch!
They are the roundest, happiest bunch of kids too.
It's amazing how fast they're changing into little dogs. Every thing they do is a learning activity, isn't it?
I love Neelix, the tiny one. Just like I like Dott so much, the tiny one.
Oh dang cute, but a lot of work for all of you!

they are all so cute! I can't pick a favorite of them because I want to cuddle each and everyone of them! I'm glad they are doing great and gaining weight and growing :)

Dott, I say this often but I really mean it. You are such a good Mommy, you are so patient with your beautiful babies. It looks like one of them(I can't tell them apart yet) was chewing on your paw. I am so glad you got my surprise, you deserve it. Mommy couldn't think what to get for the tiny ones so it is mostly for you and for sharing of course.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hey! Never too young to learn bitey face. Watch out for the shark teeth, though.
