This was a big transition week. Pups left the cocoon of the whelping box where mom did everything – (feed and cleaned) and into the world (my kitchen). And I have to begin to take over Mom’s basic duties. They had their first non-mom meal (organic raw chicken with oatmeal, salmon oil, vitamins, and probitoics). They were introduced to a litter box of pellets – it is messy at first but really makes a difference downstream. They went outside and met their uncles, face to face. Some tried a tunnel. And we began to play with each other and toys. Now that they can hear, they listen to a playlist on and off: Glenn Gold “The Essential Glenn Gould” Variations, Yo Yo Ma – “Bach: Unaccompanied Cello Suites” and Laurie Anderson ” The Heart of A Dog” which is BACH and Some Performance Art. I think when ever your pups or dogs need calm – this music will bring them back to a calm place in their mind. I am also introducing kitchen appliances, car noises and many other sounds of daily life.
