7 weeks old

This litter is still an amazingly civil bunch of pups.  They keep a clean pen, mind their manners in the house, are quiet in the morning, and are easy to manage outside.  We have been busy providing new experiences - solo outings to new parts of the yard, walks back from a neighbor's house on leash, and introduction to clicker training.  This coming week, there are a couple of planned therapy dog visits and an ICAN Golf Outing.  At the end of the week, the pups will be leaving my house to continue their journey as assistance dogs in training. 

At 7 weeks, I transitioned to hard puppy kibble with a bit of water added immediately before feeding.  These pups love their chow, but are still trying to figure out this hard crunchy stuff.  With limit feeding, I managed to slow down their weight gain to around 1 lb last week.  Weights ranged from 8 lbs 9 oz (Little Guy) to 9 lbs 4 oz (Cory)
