8 Week Check Up

We had the puppies in for their next shots today. They were weighed, had their teeth checked, their eyes examined and the boys were all checked for…ahem…their manliness.

It’s a lot of fun to go to see our Vets with the babies. Their first breaths were taken in their office and each time we go back, it is very much like a family reunion.

While we waited for the doctor, I played with the pups. They are so darn cute, and they love their Granny something fierce!

Soon, Dr. K. came in and the exams began. Who did she start with? Yes, her favorite. Wally! Just so Wally’s owners know, she loves the name you have selected for him and says that he really is a Wally!

Wally really has such a great rapport with Dr. K and she just nuzzled him through the entire exam.

Next we were on to Schnapps. Now Schnapps is a bright, energetic and alert little Miss. She never stops and holds her own with her bigger brothers.

What a beauty she is!

Next was our butterball, Curt. He has such a wonderful personality too. He, Schnapps and Calvin have been showing me their great noses and their real interest in what they are smelling.

But in these pictures, he is looking more like he is wondering what is going on!

Calvin was up next and he was the most patient of the pups.

Even when they checked his teeth, he remained calm.

Meanwhile, Wally began to howl.

Then it was Fenway’s turn. He was a little suspicious!

But then, he started to relax.

We did not take Greta with us, but when we arrived home and allowed the pups to run in the yard, we let her out. What did this girl do with her 8 week old babies? She lay right down and nursed them for about 10 minutes.

I am constantly amazed at the beauty of motherhood with my girls. Greta especially was an even better mother the second time around. And I couldn’t be prouder of her!

  1. That is so funny that she had to nurse them, it is as if she new they needed a little Mommy comfort time.
    The pups look great and are just so wonderful!! Love YOU, Mel
