Rock Climbing

Yesterday the pups went to the vet for their second set of vaccines. They had each gained a pound and they had each gained confidence. No more whimpering puppies snuggled in the arms of the tech ladies. Now we had curious miniature dogs racing around the room, trying to break into the big bags of dog food and pulling on pant legs and shoelaces. Especially shoe laces! At times Dr B and I couldn't hear each other over the high pitched barking.

Today it's another sunny day in the 50s so we decided to tire them out in the yard.    
Rock climbing seems to be their favorite activity. Here's Mackenzie on the rocks. Mac is totally fearless and that's something we're going to need to watch closely. There are lots of ways for very little dogs, who think they're big dogs, to get in trouble.
Sydney also likes to play in the rocks, but she's not as daring as her sister.
This is something they do a lot of. Some call it 'bitey-face" and in the Portie community, it's called "sharking".  Whatever you call it, it's accompanied by some very startling sound effects.
Bitey-face can get out of control sometimes. Watch out for your ears around Mac.
Look how fast we can run!
Then they both sleep for several hours after playing outside until they wake up screaming for their next meal. What a life, eat, sleep and play!

They're so much fun to watch! I'm glad you have reasonable temperatures; we have been topping out under 15 degrees for 3 days now, and we might reach 30 next week. I'm in hibernation.

Can't believe how much they've grown already. When is the big meet and greet with the big dogs?

My daughter calls them dogettes at this age. So much fun to be around.

I still have a scar on my lip from somepup. It's nice because as an older person, the scar provides a nice trench for lipstick to drip off of my already very thin lips ;-)

I love that whole confidence thing they start doing. When they go from little whimperers into "I'm not scared-a you!" Too cute!

Life with Wrigs said...

They are so cute! I don't think Wrigs could cope with having a little bundle of needle-sharp teeth and energy around. Have the big dogs met them yet?
