They were two weeks old yesterday, but I took their pictures for their two week update today. It’s just the way things worked out. And I’ll admit, I got a little carried away. They are just SOOO adorable. And they are getting cuter by the minute. Less like little guinea pigs, more like puppies… 🙂 It’s so nice seeing them grow and change, they are doing so in leaps and bounds. And while yes, they are just camera phone pictures, they’re better than my very first digital camera could take WAY back when. 😛
As I’d mentioned a while ago now, we had hopes of heading out for a puppy (and people) playdate with my friend Yolanda. Unfortunately we got rained out and had to postpone. Fortunately, the weather was perfect today. 🙂 And, as promised, I tried to be less of a hovering mother hen, and more of a stand-back-and-take-photos kinda gal. So without further ado, our family playdate:
Thank you so much for having us all over Yolanda. It really was a fabulous afternoon, and a much needed break from all the overtime hours I’ve been putting in lately. 🙂 Very much looking forward to doing it again soon.
Well, today marks the puppies fifth-week-irthday. Yep. They are five weeks old today. And while it’s never something you hear about well bred Chihuahuas, I’ll say it anyway… They are getting SOOO big. LMAO
Okay, so yes. “Big” is relative. But they are sooo much bigger now. And they are running around. Using the pee pads. Giving kisses. Climbing things. Wrestling. Squeeking (they are trying to bark, but it comes out more like little squeeks). They are way too adorable.
Today we took both Deedee and Alice for their first play date. Granted, they were being held more than they were being played with, but that’s good for them too. 🙂 You won’t find a guy who adores tiny puppies more than my dad – and every Chihuahua who has ever been through our doors has made it’s way into his arms at some point. Well… every Chihuahua except Nico (but he was a special case). LOL
Here are two quick snapshots I nabbed (I was too busy being a mother hen to snap more than a couple):
Tomorrow = another day.
Another day = another playdate.
This time at my friend Yolanda’s place… where I will TRY to hover less, and try to photograph more. LMAO But I can’t promise anything.
Okay, the only thing cuter than three and a half week old puppies, are three and a half week old puppies mucking about in the yard. So… how could I NOT take pictures? Seriously. I was compelled to capture their little romp. It simply had to be done.
The older of the girls, Alice is white with black spots and tan markings. Though she is older, she is the smaller of the two. She is currently weighing in at .434 kg (15.3 oz).
Alice is the more laid back of the two girls. Content to sit and be loved upon by the many who adore her. She’s happy to go exploring, but likes the reassurance that comes from knowing mommy is near by. She’s a lot like her Daddy, Ned.
When they were brand new, Deedee, our black tri-coloured puppy, always seemed so big compared to her sister. That difference is minimal now. Currently weighing .454 kg (16.0 oz), she actually looks smaller than Alice… apparently black actually is slimming.
Deedee is very much like her momma, Roo. Always busy. Always going. Always getting into something. Sure, she loves her cuddles – but they have to be on her terms or she’ll wiggle her little butt right out of there.
Today, I am mentally and physically exhausted. A perfect day to share puppy pictures – because otherwise you’d be stuck reading me grouse about it. 😉 And well, as I’m bound and determined to choose joy, this is a good chance for me to do so. While I’m feeling completely thrashed, there’s still so much to be thankful for, so much to take joy in.
With that in mind, here are a few puppy pictures!
The pictures are from the eighth, so are a few days old. But I didn’t think you’d mind too much. Will try to snap some new ones soon. 🙂 Maybe during a trip outside.
