puppies with bones

The pups understood straight away what to do with a chicken neck. It's a good use for those sharp teeth!

more puppies

The puppies latch on to Mum any chance they can get. She is very patient with them most of the time.

The pups at play under Gracie's watchful eye.

More puppy photos!

The pups like to spread out in their big pen.

Typical Airedale...looks asleep, but there is always an eye open to check out what's going on.

Starting to play with the toys.

First bone - very interested!

Puppies in the grass

The pups are able to have playtime in the yard now. They think it's pretty neat.

Merry Christmas from the Doubledaire pups

Merry Christmas to everyone! Have a great holiday.

Well here's a crazy idea...put hats on the puppies says Neil. I guess it's never too early to start with dressing up your Airedale!

The first photo shoot was chaos with puppies and hats everywhere. Then we tried it again when they were a bit sleepy and managed to get this photo.

Gracie and I lucked out this year and didn't have to wear hats or tinsel or santa claws outfits or nothing. It's pretty hot this time of year, so that's a relief.

puppies are three weeks old

 The pups are so big now, hardly room at the milk bar anymore.

They are already showing unmistakeable Airedale habits,  playing bitey face...

 sleeping on their backs...

and as of  this morning, they have decided they want out!

puppies' first video

Here's the video of puppies at play from yesterday.

They have a lot of white toes at the moment, but those mostly fade out as they get older.

Puppies at 18 days old - starting to play!

The puppies have just started to play! Their eyes are open, they are up on their feet and ready to start investigating the world.

Here's yesterday's after-lunch play time.

It didn't take long before they were all asleep again though.

Breakfast time

The pups are sleeping through the night now, which is good, but it does make breakfast a feeding frenzy of hungry pups.

 Gracie is finally past the sore nipples part and is much happier to stay with them until they can drink no more.

Full as a goog (Aussie slang for stuffed to the eyeballs).
Sleepy little boy, so cute!
