The puppies were nine weeks old on February 15 and went in for their second round of shots. They also had blood drawn for the health study and were micro chipped.

Since the weather has been nice they have been spending most of their time outside and loving it. They get to play with momma until she gets tired of them and they play with the Hide -A -Bee. They are really developing well and have begun to show their different personalities.
