I’m at WFC, not at home to take pictures or post them, but I took these a few days ago, when the puppies were approximately four weeks old. Check them out — the babies are starting to really look like cute little puppies!
They are getting bouncy, but action shots tend to be very blurry, so here they are either crashed or just about to crash. Well, sleeeeeepy puppies have their charms too.
This is the age where puppies kind of notice you exist and start to deliberately interact with you. You can seem them try to focus on your face when you pick them up. I don’t know that they actually can look at a person very easily; we’re so big and they’re so very tiny. The biggest puppy (Boy 2) is 2 lbs 4 oz. The smallest — the girls are actually neck and neck — is just under 1 lb 14 oz.
It’s remarkable when you think about it, how easily tiny puppies learn to trust huge people. Cavalier mothers usually don’t mind a bit if you pick up their newborn puppies, which is a whole ‘nother level of trust. A few do, but certainly none of mine object. It’s really quite something.
