Princess's puppies are three weeks old today. They continue to grow and develop beautifully, and are staggering around in their house on unsteady little legs. Their eyes are still that universal newborn dark blue color with an unfocused gaze. I wonder how much they are able to see at this point.
Sled dog pups get their dew claws removed on the second day of life, and this litter was no exception. Booties are much easier to get on and off a working sled dog without that floppy and useless claw just below the wrist. Henry did a good job removing them (not always easy) and the little stubs have healed up nicely.
At three weeks they are walking enough to fall out the front door of their house occasionally. And now they are big enough that Princess has a hard time getting them back in. It is time to build a little ramp up to the front door. It is fun to watch them explore their world.
And on a completely different note, I am flying out tonight to attend the annual conference of the American Academy of Physician Assistants. This year's meeting is being held in Philadelphia, a city I've only been to once, about twenty years ago. I'm really looking forward to it. Posting may be even more infrequent until I return home.
