Miss Teal




Because this is a very large litter, and we wanted to give Mama Mabel
 some help, we introduced the puppies to baby rice cereal and milk,
shortly after their two week birthday.

18 Days Old

When they were 18 days old, we added soaked puppy kibble and
organic canned food to the mix.  This was a very popular decision!

This is good stuff!

Time for a post-meal huddle!

19 Days Old

Soon, they had outgrown the small bowl
(yes, there is a bowl beneath the puppies),
and they graduated to the Big Bowl.

20 Days Old

Here they are, eating like champs from the Big Bowl.
Soon, we will start using two bowls.

Though she is still nursing her puppies, Mabel enjoys the
freedom this is giving her.  Last time we saw her,
she was relaxing under a tree in the yard.  :)
