Today was a very busy day for the girls from the L & M litters. This morning they had their first car ride as we traveled to Charlotte for their well-puppy vet exam. There was a lot of noise making for the first 10-15 minutes and then they quieted down. They were super stars at the vet office, confident and bold. Everyone checked out perfectly with the only issue being a small umbilical hernia on the Leopard collar girl (L-litter).
The trip home they were quiet the entire way home. They all traveled very well and not a hint of motion sickness from any of them. Today was a balmy day of 25 degrees so when we got home from the vet office we took the pups for a walk in the deep unplowed snow, they found some giant snow banks made by the snow plow and delighted in climbing up and sliding down.
We then worked on learning stairs. The 4 stairs going into the house from the garage was not a problem, the full flight of stairs going downstairs was daunting. So we picked them up and placed them 2/3 of the way down and with encouragement we got them to come down the stairs. In the morning when we headed out, Zebra girl had climbed the full flight of stairs. 🙂
When we got down to the puppy rooms they clearly were not ready for a nap so out into the play yard they went with Ana (U-Ch V Alta-Tollhaus Havana IPO1 KKL1) . They had a blast playing hard and zooming around for a good solid hour. Our plan was to get them good and tired for their ear tattoos. They were the best and easiest pups ever to tattoo! They crashed hard for nap time.
After a good sleep we tried to do head shots….it was a lot of work for us, these babes were still wiped out. You can see they how tired they are in the picture, but since we went to the effort of taking them here they are:
