Size wise growth continues much as before, which has been reassuring as the transition to solid food has gathered pace.
Which is really all there is to say on the subject. In total there is now almost 11kg of mini-dog running around.

They were happy to get a longer term booking prior to the summer season and we would get to stay in the same beautiful location with amazing postcard views from a spacious and luxurious house with loads of space to create a puppy living area. It really was just perfect. Once again life provided what we needed just as we needed it, in the nick of time....and all because of these special puppies. That the owners even came out to San Jose especially to get the house ready, show us around and really make us feel like we have found a home - a place we can relax into. Well it's just a wonderful gift they're giving to us. We feel incredibly grateful to everyone who is playing a part in this puppy adventure.
Fortunately, given all the excitement, it seems Leela has been teaching them bite inhibition. They do still give the occasional harder than comfortable nip, but most of the nibbling of toes and fingers during play is gentle.
And there is also clear variation between the pups. Jess and Pati, for instance, love being picked up and fussed and sit and tap our feet to remind us they are there. Bella, on the other hand, wants us to play with toys but will still roll on her back for a tummy rub when she's tired, which isn't often since she's usually the last to fall asleep. Jess and Teddy still love rolling around with each other, Rose loves to run around the room and really wants to get up the stairs if we'd let her (with her long legs) and George....well everyone loves little George. He plays with toys, he loves fuss, he's quiet at times but increasingly scrapping and feisty after a few training sessions and tactics he's learned from mum. Basically he's unbelievably cute (as are they all of course).
