Where Did All That Hair Go?


By now puppies have had their nails clipped 3 times.  I clip nails this frequently partly to help accustom puppies to having their feet handled but mostly I do it because it protects mom from the very aggressive grabbing and kneading by 60 sharp puppy nails.  Well, puppies are due for another clipping but their foot hair has grown too long for the nail clippers so it’s time to shave feet.  Once I get the clippers out it’s hard to hold back and  I can’t resist doing their faces.  It’s always a surprise to see the little faces behind all that hair!

We continue to challenge the puppies with new surfaces, sounds and experiences.  The great thing about doing this casually is that the puppies have no idea that their brains and  bodies are being pushed.

Ally is starting to nurse standing up.  The puppies are getting a great workout balancing and stretching.  Orange is trying to figure out the best way to approach this.
