|The pups have not yet learned how to get up on the porch|

5 weeks old
A very busy week. The pups spent July 4th weekend with Alpine's family. Not only did they adapt to a new environment, but also got a couple of car rides. Lots of outdoor play time - the weather has been amazing. The pups know the way from the pen to the back porch and are doing a great job doing most of their daytime toileting outside. I brought out the wading pool and the pups have been tentatively giving it a try. Pups are being fed individually so that helps equal out sizes. I am limit feeding the big pups and giving extra to Little Guy. Pups gained over 1 lb last week, and Little Guy gained at least 1/2 lb more than everyone else gaining 1 lb 14 oz. He is now only 3 oz smaller than Willa. Weights ranged from 6 lb 4 oz (Little Guy) to 7 lbs (Oz).
