Those who say, that fortune can not be bought, have not realized, that puppies exist.

At least all get tired
They start to play with each other, some kind of "wrestling".
The little puppies are increasingly taking on the "outlines" of a dog.

Visit to the puppies crate. Today, our grandchildren Saphia and Avia are with the puppies.
For Saphia it is already
the third litter, which she experienced.
At the last, the E-litter, she can remember well even.
3. and 4. week
The second time puppy milk
Some puppies can already really good "collect" milk, others less so.
These are no Easter Bunny, but
Irish Red Setter puppies.

Today the surprise comes up, today they get beef meet balls. After an initial low interest they suddenly awake, the little nose starts working on and then "bring down" themselves greedy to the meat.

.........except one or two, still trying to be a "climber" - it might get even more meat balls.
Subsequently the puppies are so tired that they fall asleep almost immediately.......
The time has come now:

The little ones are now so grown that the wicker basket (see photo of 7 December) is no longer sufficient. The laundry basket is needed. But here is already foreseeable: that will not last for long!!!
Meanwhile, all have their eyes open, the view is clear, mutual perception starts with the eyes.
