Puppies in Action (Videos)
The puppies turned 4 weeks old on Friday. They have gotten bigger and a lot more active. They still spend about 90% of their day sleeping, 7% eating, and the other 3% is spent wrestling with each other and trying to climb out of the whelping box I made. Talk about hilarious! Of course all the wrestling seems to take place in the wee hours of the morning. Since most of the time that I am home, their whelping box is in my bedroom, I get to experience all the fun with them.
I included a link to three videos where they are wrestling. Luckily, they only have baby teeth, so no one has gotten hurt in these little matches. They play fight for about 5 minutes, then they crawl back in the bed and snuggle with each other. Last night I discovered a little trick to get them back to sleep quicker. I gave each of them a little body massage, then placed them back in the bed. Worked like a charm! They didn't budge after I put them down.
At least four more weeks of this. I can't wait to see what the next few weeks bring. I know they will be able to escape their little area before too long. I will have to come up with another secure location soon. Enjoy!
Introducing the members of the WWP! (World Wrestling Puppies)
First up is "Spot". Typically the less aggressive of the four, but she gets her licks in too.
Look at all that innocence. Surely she can't hurt a fly. Remember this when you watch the videos.
Next up is "Blackie". In the videos Blackie appears to be the instigator in a lot of the fights. His signature move is the tail bite.
"Who me? What did I do?"
Then there was "Brownie". She's the girl, who fights like a boy. She is the most independent of the four, and the one who has been trying hard to escape from the box. She has clearly inherited her mother's acrobatic ways. You will usually find her laid out on her back relaxing.
Last but not least is "Whitey", the most innocent looking one in the bunch. Don't let that fool you. She is definitely not innocent. Just watch the video.
In the past few days, the hair on her head, and the area under her eyes, have both turned a little beige, just like her mother.
This is the puppies in their sleep mode. They are like this the majority of the time. The three videos below show how they are about 5 - 10 mins or so each night.
