The puppies are six weeks old now, so today we took them to the Vets for their first shots. It was quite a trip, with all five puppies tucked into the puppy crate (which Hubby carried) and Greta on a leash.
All the way over to the office the puppies were squealing in the back seat. They sounded a little bit like sea gulls, but without the soothing sound of the ocean waves blended in.
It went very well, with all of the puppies getting their first shots, and passing their first little physicals. I’m telling you, it was the cutest thing in the world to watch.
While the puppies were being examined, I played with the others.
Wally wasn’t sure if he liked all the attention.
And Fenway took the time to flirt with the Vet Tech, Ashley.
Schnapps had her shots gently rubbed into her leg.
While Calvin was reassured.
And Curt peered around nervously.
But in the end, they all did well, and came home none the worse for wear.
In the afternoon after their naps we had them outside playing and running around.
I somehow feel that in the last two days the pups have grown by leaps and bounds.
I can’t believe how quickly they have gone from totally helpless little creatures to full fledged growing puppies with TEETH!

Here’s to the first 6 weeks!!!
