This WAS typical afternoon play with the puppies last year about this time.
FACE PLANT is what I call this photo.
Poor baby. Mama does not even care,.
Mama does not care because she is having too much fun playing keep away from her babies. Nevada and Lassen are getting in on the play too.
This is about the time mama tries to wean. We have a little of that going on.
Babies win out. Time for a drink.
Lassen and Nevada wait patiently.
There is fun to be had.Pit stop completed. “We are ready to go play.”“Not me. I’ll just watch what you do.”Nevada and Lassen split and Grandma Maisie shows up.
Grandma has the right smell….kinda.
You can’t hear the low growl in this photo.
But you can tell what she is saying huh?
“No milk. Boobies out of business.”
“But I like to play.”“I may look mean but I LOVE babies”Grandma teaches the babies how to have a soft mouth.She teaches them how not to be afraid and to trust.She lets them chew on her body parts.And crowd all around her to feel safe.While grandma teaches mama feeds.The standing position is the most productive feeding position exposing all the boobies.But after awhile fatigue sets in. “Get what you can while the getting is good babies!”
Stay tuned for Day 6!
