Big Critter Updates

I have been bad about blogging lately - lots going on with getting back into the groove of work and such.  I have some great pics of the big critters.  I will try to do a post later this week with some pics of the little guys as well.

Puppies are doing great!  They seem happy and healthy and they are growing like weeds.  We are making great strides with potty training - a rough day here and there but for the most part they do pretty darn well.  They each seem to have their "thing" we are going to have to work on.  Tango is the chewer - thankfully he hasn't torn up anything important or valuable.  Charli is going to be the jumper - she loves to jump up on you.  Juliett is still the scared girl - very timid - we are working on her confidence level.

Emma is doing fantastic - she is so much more active with the babies around.  She gets a ton more exercise than she did before they joined the family - I would say a good 45 minutes to an hour of cardio a day now where she is running with them in tow.

Piggers is doing well - for the most part his attitude has improved.  He still has his moments but for the most part he is chilling out.  He doesn't try to kill the puppies through the sliding glass door - in fact I have been opening it a tiny crack and they have been smelling each other.  It will still be a few months before they get even close to introduced - I want to wait til Tango is fixed and they are bigger.

Here are some pics I had on my phone that never got posted:

Tango - with the crazy ears

Juliett - enjoying the mud after the snow

Charli - I think she looks like an adorable little fox

Little critters are doing just great!  I will post about them soon!
