Bear turns 4 weeks old

It's hard not to clutch the screen and smoosh his face. Bear turns 4 weeks old and that's half way to Apifera. I'm grateful the breeder send these update pics to all of us. This week should get fun, as the pups will begin to move around a lot at this stage.

I wake up realizing how life will change for us in-house Apiferians, but in a good way. It's been 10 years since I raised a pup. But I'm up for the newness and wonder of it all, and to socializing him when he is ready. This will be my dog, that is the plan. Although let's not forget I bring cats home from the shelter and they fall in love with Martyn. But I will be the one training him, taking him out, etc.

It is just pure fun to have his photos from these early days in the litter. I love you Bear, we are going to have a lot of fun, and good work with the elders too.

My husband and I got a yellow lab puppy at only 5 weeks. When we met, he was 3.7 lbs, mama had stopped feeding them at about 4 wks. We took him home at 5 lbs. We fell in love hard! Never questioned what a puppy would mean to 2 senior people!! And our Great Dane/Mastiff looked at us like we were crazy! But that first day Max came to live with us, I knew joy had walked in my door! He is now almost 3 mos old and close to 20 lbs! We are a happy family! P.S. I love what you do!
