Y Litter - 5 weeks old

After weeks of bone-chilling cold weather and week after week of snow the temperature rose to a balmy -1C.  On this sunny day the puppies turned 5 weeks old and we introduced them to the great outdoors.  Each puppy seemed so happy to finally be in their element which seemingly has no boundaries, great expanses of white stuff under their paws and the company of the entire pack.   They all spent a lot of time eating snow, sniffing, and grabbing any passing milk bar that happened to walk by. 

With having 3 litters on the go there is a lot of maternal instinct floating around and none of the mothers mind who is nursing off of them.   This will make weaning next to impossible but they all seem to enjoy their puppy kibbles, meat and bones so I am not concerned. 


#1 Male puppy.  He is easy to distinguish with his striking black mask. 

#3 female playing with a toy.  She is just slightly smaller than her sister.

# 1 Male at the back  and #4 female in the foreground (they love the sheepskin rug in the crate)
