 We always choose a theme for our litter name and then give each puppy a temporary name to go with that theme. We’re calling this litter the “Ski Run” litter since we are enjoying ski season here in Angel Fire. Each puppy is named for a ski run here at Angel Fire Resort.

Week 8 - March 6, 2017

We're 8 weeks old! That means we all had our soaps and our conformation evaluations done. First we had to get slicked down with some thick shampoo - one at a time. Then we were supposed to stack on the table. We did pretty good. Then we finished our bath, got dried with the hair dryer and had to stack on the table again. Mom and Dad wanted to see our straight legs and our beautiful structure. They said we are gorgeous puppies! 

We napped in crates again this week. This week we napped all by outselves. We were invited to a Puppy Party where we were the honored guests! Lots of people came to play with us and see how amazing we are. We worked on "manding" this week. This is where we settle down and focus on our Mom and Dad - and we get a treat! This week we had visitors, car rides and got to play a lot!

Week 7 - Feb 27, 2017

 We are becoming independent! (Mom and Dad told us that.) The most exciting part of our week was meeting lots of new people who came to visit us. We loved all the attention! We love to run and chase each other. We follow the big dogs around. We also love to walk with Mom and Dad. We only nurse once a day now - mostly we eat our puppy food. We went for more car rides and we're getting pretty good at it. We also started napping in a crate. We love our new independence!

Week 6 - Feb 20, 2017

We got to play outside a little bit this week. There's lots to discover outside - like rocks to climb up on and logs to climb over. Our teeth are all in and looking perfect. They are very sharp and we learned the word "ouch." Our humans do NOT like when we bite their toes. We are eating more puppy food and nursing less, but Mama Sadie still loves to cuddle with us. We also went for our fist car ride. We did great! We'll go for more rides next week. We can't wait. Oh, and we had more visitors who let us crawl on their lap and who played tug with us. We loved it!

Week 5 - Feb 13, 2017

 We started puppy preschool this week! We get to go to a special play area where we get to explore, run, climb, crawl under, climb through, etc. The preschool play area includes steps that we can climb up or crawl under, a tunnel, lots of soft beds that we can jump in and out of, a small slide (that we LOVE!), a "pit ball" area, our adventure box and of course – lots of toys. What fun we’re having! Our teeth are coming in and this week we got to try puppy food for the first time. Yummy! Our favorite part is when we are almost done and Mama Sadie comes in to lick out the dish with us!

Week 4 - Feb 6, 2017

This week we discovered that humans are fun! We love to go running over to our human family, wag our tails and climb up into their laps to snuggle. Then we're off again to play with our littermates and our toys. So much to discover! We also love Grandma Lani. She lets us climb all over her, snuggle in her silky hair and she lets us tug at her and bat at her. She's like one big lovable toy. We also get to play with Grandpa Kai! What fun. We now have an Adventure Box to play with. It has lots of fun things hanging down that we can bump, push aside, bat at, play with, etc. It introduces us to the sights, sounds, touch and motion that we will experience during our lives. It helps us become more confident! We just think its a fun place to play. 
Oh, and big news - our teeth are coming in.

Week 3 - Jan 30, 2017

This week we learned how to play. 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.

Week 2 - Jan 23, 2017

What a great week we've had! 
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 Sadie! 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! Soon we'll graduate from SuperDog!

Week 1 - Jan 16, 2017

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