Runa doesn't watch as Boy 2 meets Ara

Boy 1 in Stu's lap holding off Boy 2 as Boy 3 and the Girl watch

The primary game is still "find dinner." 

At least Runa gets to roll in the grass while nursing now.

Runa's pups at 3 weeks continued....

The little girl looks like she is wearing a white bib, and oh what a tummy.

Of course, Boy 2 is the first to try the new wet food.

Boy2 has to keep up his strength to feist with Boy 1 as the smaller pups look on.

Now eating...and wearing... a little solid food
