Eyes are open and puppies are on the move!

So stinkin' cute!!!

Hi everyone,

I was hoping to get another post up this weekend, but it ended up being a busy one!  Puppies are still indoors right now, but we are getting things ready to move them outside next weekend.  While it will be sad not to have them around 24/7, I know they are going to love the set-up in the kennels.

The puppies opened their eyes last Thursday, just as they turned 2 weeks old.  Since then, they have begun tearing around all over the place and I've put down non-slip foam flooring because they were crying every time they hit the linoleum.  Apparently they didn't like being slowed down by slippery flooring!

Aside from cruising around the kitchen, the puppies are also starting to wrestle with each other.  They bite each others' tails and I heard one of the puppies growl at another one for the first time the other day!  Without teeth, the puppy bites are pretty ineffectual, but I was shocked to find bruising on some of their bellies.  Turns out that when mom isn't nearby for a meal, they use each other as pacifiers and have been giving each other hickies!  Too bad they don't make binkies for puppies, huh?

Well guys, I'm beat and I'm sure you are all getting anxious to see pictures.  I didn't update Picassa, but I including several pictures in this blog post.  I also video taped the puppies and just need to figure out how to post the video on the blog so you can check the puppies out in action.  If all else fails and I can't post the video here, I'll post a link to YouTube and upload the video there.  Enjoy the pics!

All my best,
