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!
