Airedale pups at 4 weeks

 This is the spring litter of Airedale pups.  We take them from the house each day and put them into one of the calf domes we've got at the farm., where they spend their day peering over the lip of the dome at the activities.  They're pretty curious about everything.  We've had 5 or 6 groups by to look at pups; they bring their dog sometimes, to see how it reacts to the pup, or their parents or friends.  Picking a dog is a serious endeavor -- the more heads the better!
They're still nursing off mom, but are eating an increasing amount of canned food each day, mixed with puppy chow.  Each pup will polish off a half-pound of this mix.  You'd think that a pup wouldn't be able to put that away, but these guys do. 

There's 11 in this litter, born the 2nd week of May, 2011.
