Pearl at four months

Pearl is 16 weeks old and oh how she had changed. In the past three weeks she has increased her weight by 33 1/3 percent - just imagine. She now weighs 40.3 pounds. Her favorites toys are a ball tied to a rope that she swings around and chews and her squeeky rubber elephant. She has finally started sleeping on her own bed and leaves JD to his bed most of the time. He is very relieved to be able to stretch out and not have her climb all over him all the time.

Pearl was always the one that liked sitting in Helen's lap and she still tries to climb into mine but it is a struggle. We can make it for about a minute before she gets uncomfortable and starts struggling to get down. She is just getting too big for the lap.

She has the gentlest mouth - even the vet commented on it this week. She is sweet about taking food off of a fork and takes her turn with the other dogs. She likes tomatoes, green beans, mac and cheese, and loves flax seed crackers.

Your floor kinda looks like mine with all the toys and chews strone all over the place. I can't believe how fast the pups are growing.

She is adorable with her long legs and huge paws! I love the name Pearl, I've thought of using it some day. Can't wait to see more of the puppies.
