Dam: Ellenyorn Queen's Rapsody at Tachnamadra"Katie"

5  weeks old

There's very little to say this week except to confirm that the puppies are thriving and continuing to grow in confidence.  They are now fully weaned and no longer dependant on mum, although they do chase after her if she enters the room in the hope that she will feed them, but mum has other ideas and her only interest is in cleaning up the leftovers.   They are now very aware of my presence and screech for attention as soon as they hear my footsteps, so I find myself having to creep around so as not to disturb them, but their hearing is much better than mine!  This week they have explored downstairs and been introduced to my other shelties.  Hopefully, weather permitting, the coming week should see them being introduced to the garden and familiarising themselves with the outside world..
