Well, in addition to the continuous pile of laundry, quite a lot actually!
The tri girl was the first to top the two pound mark and open her eyes this morning.
We do a lot with the puppies, even at this stage. We’re making them into “super dogs”.
And we’re following “The Rule of Sevens”.
— By the time a puppy a puppy is 7 weeks old, it should have:
1. Been on 7 different surfaces: carpet, concrete, wood, vinyl, grass, dirt, gravel, woodchips, etc……
2. Played with 7 different types of objects: big balls, small balls, soft fabric toys, fuzzy toys, squeaky toys, paper or cardboard items, metal items, wooden items, milk jugs, etc…….
3. Been in 7 different locations: front yard, back yard, basement, kitchen, car, garage, laundry room, bathroom, crate, kennel, etc….
4. Met and played with 7 new people: include children and older adults.
5. Been exposed to 7 challenges: climb on a box, climb off a box, go through a tunnel, climb steps, go down steps, climb over obstacles, play hide and seek, go in and out a doorway with a step up or down, run around a fence….
6. Eaten from 7 different containers: metal, plastic, cardboard, paper, china, pie plate, frying pan, etc….
7. Eaten in 7 different locations: crate, yard, kitchen, basement, laundry room, bathroom, x-pen, etc…
The following is a companion piece to the article I posted earlier on fetal development. It tells about the development of the first seven weeks.
