It has been a rather hectic past few days

We have been on the move since we left a week ago today.  By the way the twins were born 8 weeks ago today. After 21 years of owning doxies I am still confused as to why the first so many months are counted in weeks and then suddenly it switches to months. So you have read about us picking them up Tuesday and our night in Canmore and getting home Wednesday and how that night ( Wed. – Thurs. ) was not so good.  However the great news is that they slept the next night ( Thursday – Friday ) only waking up at 7:50AM this past Friday. I called it a miracle. Sadly the next night was not so good. That is why I was so tired yesterday and the reason my eyes were so sore and I had to wear sunglasses at night.  However last night ( Sunday – Monday = today ) they slept in until 6:25AM. Sleep really is important and we are twenty plus years older since our first pup. Colin has the energy but I do not. Today we functioned much better with more sleep.

The photos in this post were all taken this past Friday, the 26th of February.

I think that they play too hard, so many squeals with ears being bit and throats, etc. Sharp puppy teeth.

Their first guitar concert.

I was wondering if they were teething as they are chewing everything including us. They are gentle with us in the morning but as their play becomes more intense as the day progresses  we are fair game. So I decided to give them very cold carrots to chew on.  They loved it but I realized that I probably should monitor how much they digest.  So I will only give it to them every 3 – 4 days. They did enjoy it and it kept them from wrestling so much. They only ate 1/4 of this but they each had their own,

We have been having them do their business in a penned area but this past Friday Colin let them have a run in the yard. They loved it and now run up and down as much as they can.

The cold only seems to affect them in the very early morning and they shiver so much. Of course they get the heated towel treatment every time they come in. It really does take two of us to care for the twins. It didn’t not take us long to realize that our new gate is much too high for them and they could easily walk under it.  That has been blocked for now.

The girls love their toys, thanks Aunty Cindy for the new ones.  We have to keep changing them out to keep them stimulated. This is Ciela, she has a wrinkled forehead.

Never too young, Carlie likes to learn new things.

…actually puppy training supplies.

    They look so playful, so much fun. Just like little kids in the beginning though as high maintenance
