So the foster puppies are now 4 weeks old! Time is flying by- in a month they will be ready to go to their new homes :) 5 of the 9 are officially adopted. Iris and Portia are going to the same home, while Hamlet, Othello, and Beatrice were adopted by 3 other families. Othello is going to the Maddox family in Florida; he is going to having the best family! My mom and Aunt Debbie (not really our aunt, but she's such a close friend, she is almost family!) have known each other since they were in high school, and our families are so close. We aren't technically blood-relatives, but we basically are one big family. I'm so exicted for them to meet Othello- we don't really know how we are going to get him to Florida, but I'm sure Mom can work something out. He will be a Florida dog in 4 more weeks!
It's so easy to tell the puppise apart now- they all have vastly different personalities, attitudes, and physical characteristics. Romeo is still the biggest of the bunch, but Brutus is catching up to him. Horatio is the smallest, but he is very healthy so we are not too concerned about his weight. They are all eating dog food soaked in water, and drink Juliet's milk when she lets them. She's not too keen on being scratched and bitten, so she only feeds once or twice a day. The puppies are starting to bark, growl, and play more often (which is the most adorable thing, ever)! The house is pretty noisy now, but it's so worth it to be able to foster these sweet babies and their loving mama.
On to the pictures!!
