They are growing up so fast! Lots of puppy fights going on and the barking is increasing. They were started on dry food mixed with their mush on Friday and don't really seem to get it yet; mom usually cleans up after them, which is okay. We had tiny Andy and Jinnee out by the swing yesterday, and we got our first glimpse of how smart and willing these guys are. Ginnee wandered off a bit; I called her with the high-pitched 'puppuppuppuppup' I use. She came running back immediately and sat in front of me. At a little over a month old. Then, I started walking towards the kennel run, and she followed right behind me. While I was putting her up, Andy wandered over to the far front corner of the house from the swing where Dale was, and Dale called him back - he too came running as fast as his tiny little legs could go, right to Dale. He too followed me to the kennel run as well. That was the first time we asked for them to do something for us (except not chew on every exposed bit of skin they can find on us). I'm pretty happy with that.
