We love the fantastic hiking trails in and around our beautiful town of Angel Fire, New Mexico. Since we’ve been spending a lot of time hiking with our dogs this summer, the Happy Trails Litter seemed like an appropriate name for this litter of puppies.

Located in the Sangre de Christo mountain range of the Rocky Mountains, at an elevation of 8,500 feet, tourists flock to Angel Fire all year long, drawn by the world-class skiing conditions in winter and by the natural beauty and abundant recreational opportunities during the warmer months of the year. Angel Fire is home to about 1,000 year-round residents. It’s a paradise for hiking enthusiasts who will find numerous trails—ranging from easy to strenuous—within a short drive of town.

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’ve moved from only living in our whelping box to sleeping in the whelping box at night and playing, napping and nursing in our expen during the day. 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 Kali!
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! Tomorrow we graduate from SuperDog!

We’ve spent the week nursing and napping. We get weighed twice a day. Boy, have we grown!
Mama Kali takes good care of us. We love to burrow under her silky hair until we disappear.
We also started our SuperDog program this week.
