"Weaning -- It's NOT For Everyone"

     At four weeks of age, it is time to start assisting Lola in weaning her puppies on to solid foods.  We make a "puppy mush" of ground chicken breast, "premium" canned puppy food and puppy kibble, all softened with water and puppy milk replacer.  Weaning can be a stressful time for some puppies;  we make certain that they are kept warm and happy, and we give them puppy vitamins and beneficial canine tummy bacteria supplements to aid digestion.  Still, some puppies prefer "Mom" over anything else...

When's Breakfast?

Some puppies take to solid foods right away...but others need a little more convincing.

"You have got to be kidding..."

"We Will Not Be Extending Our Compliments To The Chef."

Some of us have figured out how to drink water, which helps with the "thirstyness"  in this warm weather...
...but others of us, not-so-much!
