This week, puppies are getting stronger and are up on their feet, motoring around.  They’ve moved from the whelping box into the kitchen and the deck for the day.  Inside, they listen to all the sounds of the household like the washer, dishwasher, vacuum, big dogs barking, door bell and phones ringing and all of the other normal household sounds.  Outside, they listen to birds chirping, planes flying overhead, lawn mowers, garbage trucks and all the sounds of a typical suburban neighborhood.  They started eating solid food this week and drinking from the big dog bowl and they’re sure enjoying the nice weather we’re having.
