But most of all, he loves my little boy's ears!

Our Brownie is constantly making us laugh. My 4 year old son is definitely the coolest human around in her eyes, she just doesn't leave his side. I think that she has a beautiful smooth chocolate coat and is just a perfect example of what an Australian Labradoodle should look like.

Trigger is a very quiet and sweet little boy. He lets his bigger brothers make all of the noise while he just hangs back. He loves to be cuddled and snuggles his nose into my elbow when I hold him. We love this guy's white spot on the top of his head and nose.
Banner is our mellow little sweet heart. We just adore the way he makes eye contact with everyone he meets in hopes to be scratched on the ears. He is one of the bigger pups but seems to be cool with just hanging out at my feet, as long as he has had his belly full of food!
This little puppy is definitely the star of the show. Everyone who sees this pup just adores his spot on the top of his head and the half white mustache. He was so fascinated with the camera today that I was able to capture some adorable pictures of him in a perfect pose. Topper is usually a busy little guy but is doing so great with his training that we think he would fit in with any family lifestyle.

The puppies are loving playtime in the gorgeous fall weather we are having here. I have to admit that I spend as much time as I can outside on days like today and it's even more enjoyable with 6 week old puppies to play with. I love this puppy stage because they are running, playing, chewing, and exploring. They are getting some beginning training from me but are still learning a lot from their mom. She lets them know what is acceptable and keeps a close eye on them. She is still nursing them a couple of times a day but that will probably be done by the end of the week because they have new little SHARP TEETH. Ouch! They have been eating softened puppy food for a while now but they tried out some dry puppy food today and just loved it. I think it feels good on their gums. We have more videos to share with you as soon as I can stay inside on my laptop long enough to get them edited and uploaded!
I am working with the pups on crate training this week. This is an important part of getting them ready to transition to their new homes. I put each pup by themselves in a "crate" which is really just a laundry basket lined with papers or old towels. I have only 2 or three pups out at a time so I can keep a close eye on them so they are not even having accidents in their crate...so far. This is very time consuming but well worth it in the end. They are much more calm and ready to sleep through the night when they go home.
I have also been working on training them to go in a "potty box" and keep their bed clean. They are doing extremely well and they often run over to their potty box when they are outside playing. I will continue to work on this until they are all sleeping through the night without accidents or too much crying.
|Banner is doing so well all by himself! He even took a nap and cried when he woke up because he had to go potty. When I took him outside, he peed right away. What an amazing pup!|

The puppies are now 4 weeks old and interested in everything. We give them something new to explore every day. It's either a new toy, carpet to walk on, shredded paper, or anything else that is either noisy or a new texture that will help them learn and grow. They are all learning to go potty in their "potty box" which is really just a rubbermaid box turned upside down with a "door" cut into it. They go inside to go potty and keep the rest of their box clean to sleep, eat and play in. I'm very impressed with how quickly they have learned this! We will be expanding their play area next week so they can have more room to wrestle.
My two boys love puppy photo day! They are my assistants and their job is get the puppies to look at the camera. It is so interesting to see the puppies eyes follow my kids everywhere they go. Even at only 4 weeks old the puppies know that kids are the most fun.
