Watch us grow
Thought we would check in on you again. We have been
having so much fun. We keep growing and learning.
This was us at 3 weeks:
Last time we checked, we were three weeks old and our eyes were
just opening and we were starting to make some yelping and whining
At that point we were exiting the neonatal period and entering
the transitional period.
This is us at 4 weeks:
What this meant to us was that we were rapidly developing our
senses and physical abilities. We began to play with each
And we began sampling food. It was all soft and
tasty. Different than our Mom's milk, but it was sooo
good. Because we were still uncoordinated, we ended up
wearing quite a bit of it too. But never fear, our Mom
still cleaned us off! Because we are starting to eat on
our own, our Mom is producing less milk.
We started getting our puppy teeth too, which meant we had to be
careful when we were feeding with our Mom. Our Mom started
teaching us about gentle mouthing. Even though we explore
everything by our mouths, our Mom wants to be sure that we don't
The humans that we are with have also been teaching us
things. They explained what snow is and took us outside for
our first snow day. Boy, was it fun!
This is us now at 7 weeks:
We still have lots of growing to do, but we are almost ready to
move to our own furever homes. Our Mom and our foster parents
have been teaching us lots of stuff so we are prepared. We
can't move until we are at least 8 weeks of age, but we have been
posing for photos so that our furever families can find us on the
hart website. Our Mom is so excited for us to have our own
humans. I think she is just as excited to find her own humans
I heard that hart has an annual family reunion each
summer. I sure hope we can all attend the PAWTY in June so we
can see each other again!
