Starting To Explore

The energy and movement in the whelping box is increasing dramatically every day now.


They still don’t interact that much with each other yet but that is soon to come. When Barb cleans the whelping box, the pups are now crowded into the little white box. As little as four or five days ago, they fit there nicely.


As you can easily see, they want to move and see the world now. These energy episodes are still fairly brief, and they fall asleep soon after to nap and then want to eat again. We will be starting the puppy food this weekend. Then the mess and cleanup work really begins.

We had two future golden retriever lovers visit yesterday from Barbara’s school. At this stage of their lives, the puppies are so cuddly and small that they don’t intimidate even the youngest children.
