Today the puppies are five weeks old.  They are such little piglets, I have to feed them twice a day.  They barrel out of the kennel door to sniff the plants around the yard and roughhouse with each other.  I’m so excited when they respond to the whistle command to come back into the kennel.  They’ve been taking turns riding around in the crate while I run errands.  This week they are going to need more practice in the crate and being away from the litter and mom.  I hope that I can get Charles to thaw out one of his grouse wings so that we can play “wing on a rod” this week.
