Puppies are getting playful by the day. Check our 4 Week Update for their previous milestones.
Week 5 Milestones
Our living room floor is littered with puppies. We have to watch our step, because they love to be at our ankles and sleep in the middle of foot traffic. They enjoy being where the action is rather than their puppy room.
As each day goes by, the puppies are increasing the amount of time they are awake and playing more. They are continuing to learn how to mouth each other. That’s essential for them to learn not to be overly aggressive with each other as well as humans. They love to bow and wag their tail to capture their siblings attention for a little play time.
Each day they are spending more time throughout our house being exposed to difference textures, smells, especially newer sounds, etc. We continue to introduce them to new toys and stimuli. Our puppy sitter Alice loves playing with them and teaching them how to play and be a puppy. Each of them are enjoying being held.
I will say that Tina is getting anxious to not have to nurse. That time is coming soon. She does bow, bark and play with them.
This week puppies have gained a fair amount of weight. Comparatively speaking their size will be larger than our last litter.
Below is their updated weight. A bit late for photos, we know. It’s been a very busy week. We did photos of each, and did some random photos here and there.
Sam weighs 9lbs 4oz.
He is 8lbs 15oz.
He is now 9lbs 8oz and gained the most surpassing Sam. This week Petyr seems to always be around Sam and doing what he does. Their pretty much a dynamic duo.
He is 8lbs 14oz. He is very calm and enjoys to play. He’s probably the calmest while taking a bath and being dried.
Tyrion (Dark Blue)
Our smallest boy is now 8lbs 6oz. Loves to sleep.
She is 7lbs 12oz. Seems to be the most advanced female at this point in time in comparison to the other girls. Her weight is near identical the past two weeks as Margaery.
Margaery (Light Blue)
Our middle sized girl is 7lbs 11oz.
Our smallest girl is 6lbs 14oz. Johanna loves playing with her. That tongue though.
