Cassidy & Co at 2 Weeks

I'm sure you'll all be eager to see some new photos of the puppies! They are 2 weeks old today. As you can see, baby Airedales look more like baby Rottweilers! The black gradually fades to reveal the typical Airedale black "saddle".

At 2 weeks old a puppy can crawl to find milk and the warmth of its mum and brothers and sisters. They spend most of their time eating and sleeping. Their eyes should now be open, as this generally happens between day 10 and 14.


Don't they look adorable. I wonder which one Cassidy is?


Before we see them next weekend their teeth should start to break through (oh joy) and they will start walking and should be able to lap liquids, so weaning can begin. Once their teeth come through mum tends to be less keen to have them at the milk bar for long periods! Their ears should be open by the end of the 3rd week and their sense of smell begins to develop.

Watch out for lots of photos after our visit next week...

Gee Katy and Martin...thanks lots for telling muzzer about this site. She has been running her finger over puppy pictures for at least five minutes now. But she knows better than to bring a puppy home til we get Teka in a place of her own. Oh yeah, and my human sister E.Beth too!

Did she tell you about my airedale friends in Va? They were cool, and lots of fun, so I really wouldn't mind an airedale for a brother or sister, but maybe later.

kissies to you and Cassidy! and all the rest
Gussie (for muzzer)

Hard to believe that all of us Dales started out like that! I don't remember that early in my puppyhood, but it sure looks like the life to me!

Can't wait to find out which one is Cassidy. We don't even know yet if Cassidy is a boy or a girl, do we? WooHoo!! VERY exciting.

Goober love & anticipation,
Stanley
