They are also trying to play a little, which is when they really weeble, wobble, fall down, and roll.
I moved the puppies while Leah was outside, two at a time. They're so fat I was afraid to try carrying more than two! When I set them down on the carpet, they were initially frightened a little, but once all six of them got there, they weren't so scared. Leah didn't have any trouble finding her babies when she came back inside and immediately set to work getting them settled in.
Next I moved the family inside the box, where things would be more cozy. Once Leah joined them and started dinner, it was quite cozy indeed.
Along with sleeping, eating is the other important activity in the puppies' lives. They nurse heartily, sometimes too much so, it seems to me. Leah is very patient with them, but then, they don't have teeth yet.
Although it was time to move the puppy family, I miss having them on the hearth. While they were there, they were a part of my day, most of the day. Now that I have to go downstairs to see them, I feel like I'm missing some cute moments. However, there are several jobs that need doing in the basement. The Big Move might mean that I'll have a neater and cleaner basement in the end. Not a bad deal, don't you think?
