The crystal dish is perfect for two puppies, but four puppies (especially when one gets into the dish) crowd each other. I have only large flying saucer dishes (optimism?), but decided using one would keep the babies spread out while they ate. This morning Smooch, Udi, and Victor are all over two pounds and Reba is just short of the two pound mark. It seems turkey and goat’s milk agrees with them.
GOOD MORNING, Baby Puppies!
Leidy is not at all upset about the puppies bringing in outside food — especially since she cleans up the pan and then the food off the puppies. I’m going to set up the shavings/potty yard today even though the puppies are quite young. Leidy is not keeping them or the box clean. We’ll see how long it takes them to figure out that we’ve remodeled and added a bathroom. By the time they are six weeks old, I expect they will use the dog door to go out into their play yard.
The play yard is a 10′ x 6′ pen that is covered with chain link. We are going to roof it, with an overhang to keep snow and rain (which could happen) from building up in the yard. To make it really usable by our babies, I must fill in the crater that Leidy has dug. I’m not going to bother until Leidy goes home.
