Happy Mother's Day to mama Dolce!
The puppies are going to be three weeks old tomorrow, and today Maura posted three fabulous videos! They're up and mobile, eyes open, vocalizing with incredible adorableness. In the next few weeks, we'll really start getting to see all the pups' personalities. Probably, after another three or so weeks have passed, I'll know which puppy is Kaline!
Juno is quite the talker, when off-duty, so hopefully this means Kaline will be too! (To be fair, though, the puppy making all the noise in the video is the black female—evidently she was not happy that she had to have a bath.) I'm always having to tell new people, “Don't worry if she starts to growl when you scratch her butt, that means she's happy and you should keep doing that.” Sometimes if she's really feeling playful she'll make her wounded bear/Wookiee noises. And of course, when we're out at training in the park and she has to honor a different dog working, there's a constant stream of commentary from the Juno Peanut Gallery. You can tell her down, and she'll go, but the whole time she'll be grumbling or yodeling in hilarious protest.
I can't figure out how to embed the third video, which shows some of the pups playing, so here's the link!
