Given scheduling and temperatures, the pups were caught up early in the day on Saturday July 15. This was their 10-11 week “check up”. During this visit, in addition to the weighing and checking out their overall body, they got their last dewormer, second vaccine, and their microchip for identification.
Since it was Saturday, we were a little low on bodies. I enlisted the help of our CFO, Debbie May, to be our note-taker. You can thank Eli, who works on our website and graphics, for coming in on his day off to take photos.
We have a a specific sheet we use when taking notes. This helps us to remember everything we want to do when we handle the pups. I’ve put the sheet from pup #2 below. Read the sheet and see what you think– ask any questions by leaving a comment and I’ll answer them. (Pup #2 had the most notes written so I wanted you to see it).
The four pups together weigh just about 65 pounds, so no more shots of me holding all of them at once. During their last check, some of the pups had flea dirt near their rump, but today there was no evidence of fleas. They’ve grown into their ears some, still have long lanky legs, but in general, are looking more and more like just mini-red wolves.
