07.19.19- 4th Pupdate
Luna's little ones are doing great and growing rapidly. We got a little mixed up with our litter "pupdates" and were a week ahead, they will actually be introduced to the litter pan THIS week (sorry)! Luna will be thankful, as this means that their cramped "house" will finally be expanded. Luna, as always, is a superb mommy!
Ms. Orange: This gal is relaxed and enjoys a good cuddle. 2lbs 10oz Ms. Aqua: This sweetheart is the life of the party! She is photogenic and playful. 2lbs 8oz Ms. Purple: The smallest of the solid colored pups, she is sweet and FAST for her age. 2lbs 4oz Ms. Pink: Something about this little girl is SO endearing, she is confident and enjoys attention. 2lbs 2oz Mr. Green: An escape artist already, this fella got out two days in a row! He is food motivated and a chunky dood. 2lbs 12oz Mr. Red: Thoughtful, fun, and smart, Mr. Red is one cool pup! He makes good eye contact already. 2lb 8oz Ms. Yellow: This sweetie has really mellowed out this week compared to last. Still, she seems to always be at the front of the pen to greet me when I am nearby. 2lb 8oz Mr. Black: Gosh this "dood" strikes a pose every time I take a photo, he looks right at the camera! A rowdy boy who likes to sleep upside down. 2lbs 6oz Mr. Navy: This fella is similar to Black in that he seems to always be ready for the camera. He makes good eye contact and is cuddly as can be. 2lbs 8oz

The crew is doing well. Everyone is gaining each week and eyes are all open! They are beginning to toddle about their pen with more speed, and will be introduced to the litter pan this week. Luna is being a wonderful mommy (as always). This is the youngest litter here and it is still a little difficult to determine personalities just yet, but I will still include a brief description of what we see so far.
Ms. Orange: This girl is a little on the lazy side, most of the time playtime involves a siblings coming to her rather than her "chasing" them. Ms. Aqua: A bit of a drama queen (in a funny way)! She will howl for mom when she is ready to eat. Ms. Purple: SO cute, this little girl is playful with her siblings. Ms. Pink: This itty bitty gal motors all over the toddler pen, she loves to play and even chases her siblings. Mr. Green: This chunky monkey spends most of his time chilling out, but jumps right up when mom joins them! He loves to eat. Mr. Red: Something about this guy is so cool! He toddles towards people and seems to be very interested in humans. Ms. Yellow: This feminine girl is inquisitive and interested in exploring new things. Mr. Black: Handsome guy! He makes good eye contact already. Mr. Navy: Loves being held and even gives kisses!
