They are still doing a lot of eating and sleeping and growing. They can crawl around pretty well now, but have not really tried to stand up yet. I love listening to them as much as watching them. They make quite a variety of sounds to be so young, and once in a while there are some little barks and growls.
The puppies haven't outgrown our hearth yet. It's actually quite a nice place to have them. In case you've been wondering, there's no fire in the wood stove! Our heat comes from an outdoor wood furnace and the pretty stove on the hearth is only for emergencies.
Leah is such a good mama. She is comfortable leaving them for as long as an hour now, glad to get outdoors for some fresh air and exercise. Although she is committed, I think she's also bored sometimes, so a break is good for her. She's also eating twice as much as normal, reminding us in the mornings to feed her, since she usually eats just once a day in the evening. By the way, that cut on her leg has healed almost completely now, thank goodness.
Here are a few more pictures to enjoy. Someday it will be hard to believe they were ever this small.
