In honor of this litter being born and raised in the Florida Keys, we’ve named this the Conch Republic Litter. The Conch (pronounced “conk”) Republic is the name given to the Florida Keys when we seceded from the union on April 23, 1982. For some interesting history on this, CLICK HERE.

What a difference a week makes! We really started to play with each other this week We spend a bit more time awake now and love to wrestle, chew and bat at our siblings. We even have some toys now, but we think our siblings are the best toy of all. We’ve attempted to run and jump, although we need more practice at that! We have a pee pad now and we know how to use it! This really seems to amaze everyone and they say things like, “good puppy!” Oh yea – our ears are open now too. So every afternoon we listen to our Puppy Sounds CD.

We had a busy week. We learned to push ourselves up from a creeping position and stand (a bit wobbly) on all 4 legs. We took our first steps – right towards Mama Lani! Mostly we napped and nursed and got all rolly polly. The most exciting part of this week was that we opened our eyes. What a beautiful world!
