WHAT MORE COULD ONE ASK FOR!
The puppies were weaned this week and are doing great on their own. It was a very easy transition for the Pups ; however, Cobalt was missing her brood especially at night. The puppies are eating like crazy and I am having to increase their food intake almost daily. It doesn't take long to devour their meals. They are also getting far more active and are having vigorous play times after eating. Then a group sleep. I am enjoying a play time with them after the evening chores. This gives me time to interact with each one and also have some petting time holding one while watching the others play and compete for my attention. Their personalities are staring to develop and this is also fun to watch. The males look so much alike it is hard to tell them apart. The only real difference is the amount of white on their rear paws.
The adults are doing little as the heat & humidity returned this week.
This was the last week of the main two weeks of vacation here in Quebec. This increased the amount of traffic here adding to a lot more activity and distractions for both the dogs & me. This evening, after most vacationers have returned to the cities, the dogs will be exhausted and will basically sleep for a couple of days adjusting again to the peace & tranquillity of the forest.
My neighbour said he saw tracks from a large Wolf, not to far from my place, tracking a Moose & a Deer as their tracks were also in the same area. It is not unusual not to see the forest's natural inhabitants with so many humans in the area. However, on Thursday evening a Fox had visited my camp leaving his/her scat as a calling card.
Until next week.........
