The First Solids

Mama Lexus has been getting a little tired of the feedings I noticed with her "Extraordinary 8" crew, so I notice them starting to whimper a little bit.  Since they just turned 4 weeks old it was time to break out the "solids" for them.  Today was that day.

It is about  this age, or a few days after 4 weeks of age, that there is usually one, in this case two, that make it over the "wall" onto Mamas side.  It looks like it was Buddy & Blu who made it over.  The Red Tri Female & Black Tri Male are the two amazing pups still available for a Forever Home.

I coloured coordinated the feeding schedule to keep it a little more organized and to give them each a little more elbow room, so to speak.

Merles went first, Tri's second, with the exception of Buddy who seems to be the piggy of the bunch.  He finished up in short work, then transferred back to the other side of the box.

Next plan is for them all to be de-wormed.  I have lots of help tomorrow that that will be the scheduled date for that to happen.  From here on in they will be growing like "bad weeds" and then some.  Stay tuned ....
