Intoducing Solid Foods

The pups just started eating solid foods, and the video below shows them eating for the very first time. Needless to say, they loved it! Each of them knew exactly what to do and had a blast exploring this new phenomenon of dog food. They sniffed it, ate it, and stepped all through it :) I'm not sure what was messier when they were done eating... the bowl, the whelping box, or the puppies themselves.
 
Shiloh will be nursing them less and less as the days pass, and with that transition comes the new concept of pottying in a designated area. We have officially started the very early stages of potty training. This means we have to keep an eye on the pups and change dirty bedding every half hour during the day. We don't do this because we are neurotic (although that could be debated :) , rather the key of future success with early potty training is keeping the pen immaculate! That is quite the feat when there are 10 little mess makers romping about. We are busy, but all of the diligence will pay off with puppies who are able to grasp the concept of pottying in a designated area earlier than they naturally would. I'll keep you posted!

Puppies' First Meal
The puppies are enjoying their first meal and growing stronger and cuter with each passing day. We introduce the pups to solids after they have turned 3 weeks old. They love it!
