Three Weeks



Brittany puppy, three weeks old


The pups are three weeks old. Their palates are hardening.  The first teeth are starting to poke out of their gums.  Mama isn't happy.  Tender teats and little needle like teeth don't mix.  Last night the big boy was introduced to formula.  A little on the finger, he lapped it up and found his way to the dish.  This morning, five a.m., the little guy was hungry too.  Formula time. He got it figured out.  Looks like weaning time is near.   The hell raising stage is about to start.

    Can't help but spoil a little guy that looks like that; I see many hunts in his future. You guys still getting snow? Thanks for sharing

    1. Heck Bill, they're all spoiled. He and his litter mates should all be good bird dogs if they take after their mama.

      We're in between cold spells. It's been in the fifties the past couple of days, so, the snow has left the valley. Unfortunately, the wind has been brutal. I tried to get out fishing a couple of times but it was so windy that I never bothered to rig up. Thanks for checking in.......

    1. Hi Bob, he sure is. He hasn't hit two pounds yet. Some of his siblings are pushing three. The pack has started eating mush, a combination of formula and ground up puppy chow. It's funny to watch.
