They have started eating solid food this week, looks like it was a messy affair from the photos, but they all took to it well.
I'm sure a few paws in the bowl can only add to the flavour! They are starting to look more like Airedales now. For those that asked, yes they will have their tails, so they will look like Faya and Mojo with pretty tails curled over their backs.
At 4 weeks old the puppies will be able to hear and react to loud sounds. Mum will usually begin to discipline her pups, giving a growl when they try to feed at will for example. As their razor sharp puppy teeth are beginning to appear, perhaps that is not too surprising to hear!
At this age the puppies will also begin to bark, wag their tails and interact much more with each other. Dogs are den animals, and at this age will naturally start to leave the den area to go to the toilet.
I am off to see them again next weekend and I'm sure I will see a huge difference from when we went last weekend. It should be much clearer to see their individual personalities starting to develop, and watch how they interact with each other and with humans.
