We had the vet check this morning and first shots on my litter of mini aussie puppies. All good!! I knew it would be, but I always like them to be checked from head to toe just to be sure. With a litter of puppies, it is nice to use a mobile veterinarian that comes to my house, less stress on the puppies, less stress on me. After, the exams Dr. Rubsche gave them some cookies so they will associate her with only happy thoughts 🙂
So….weather is mild here in Kentucky and we did our first potty run this afternoon. Kinda hard with 5 little munchkins, but everyone ran the yard and pooped. Yay!!! good start. I have undergound fencing for my adult dogs, so I need to be an octopus to keep all the little ones contained. Luckily, my male is a really good babysitter and he rounds them up if they head toward the boundary line as did Fancy, their mom. Sooooo cute, those little balls of fluff running around!! They had the look of wild abandon on their faces. Priceless!
Since they are doing so well, I’ve changed them over to 3 meals a day rather than free feeding. That way I can guesstimate their poop action and now get them out in time. Sure makes for less cleanup and starting them on their potty training. It seems I always do some free feeding at first until they are fully weaned, but now ready to start the training phase.
