Lily's and Lola's puppies have been experimenting with "solid"food for a week or so now. We start out with a blend organic goat's milk, whole goat yogurt, and canned puppy food to make a soupy concoction that is easy to ingest.
At first they can't figure out how to "lap"with their tongues and focus instead on cleaning the rim of the muffin tin
It is especially fun (read "messy") when they try to "knead"the dish with their paws, the way they do with Mom.
They don't all "catch on"at the same rate, and sometimes are more successful in getting their share off of the faces of their littermates, rather than out of the dish.
