Meet Mom and Dad!
"Since I am now twice as big as all my stuffie littermates, the stuffed animals went into my family's general toy box. My sister Penny picked them out and brought them all back to me! (I think Penny wants her own puppies!)"
Week 2 and week 3 - Things are Happening!
"My eyes have opened, ears too! I've learned to lick, to walk and check this out: I can run!"
"My teeth are emerging and I've started on some "real" food: I give a big thumbs up to baby food! I've found I can wag my tail and hold it in a sickle curve just like the big dogs! I have a new favorite sleeping spot, guess where? (By the door to my room of course.) "

5 Weeks Old - Can you believe it? So much has happened this week!
"This week has been stellar! I am loosing my puppy shape and got a waist. My legs are growing me taller so that I can look out the window. I can also see the top of the bed where the big dogs sleep. (I think I like it up on the bed just fine and conquering the couch is next on my to-do list.) My color is changing and the red is back. I am being home schooled and learning the clicker with sit, down and touch and I really like to play with sis in the tunnel. At the beginning of the week I stayed close to home but now I am a rambler. I'm all over the land! Car rides? No problem. And my peeps thinksit's funny when I chase the lawn mower - they say that I am fearless. My ears are doing things, but not going up yet. I can problem solve: I know how to cry at the front door and it will open for me, I can figure out how to get on and walk up the ramp (it's tricky), and I know that if the front door won't open, there is a back door! OH, did I say that I am 12 lbs.? I can't wait to see what adventures are in store for me in my 6th week!

4 Weeks Old - What's going on?
"Lots! I can keep up with the pack and run out the door with my family, I do steps up and down! I like to bite and have the nickname: AnkleBiter, (I have a lot of nicknames these days - don't ask about Miss P.) I am very fast and have been exploring more and more in my yard though I do like the bushes best still. When I am tired, I put myself to bed in my crate, but to lie under the bed is pretty cool. My diet? I eat ANYTHING!" Oh, did I say that this week, I've topped 10 pounds? My peeps are teaching me to come to the whistle when they feed me, this is going pretty well and so all in all, it has been a super week!
