Well the pups are certainly sure they are ready to move on and eat more than just Mom's milk. Up until recently they have had no interest in her raw chicken pieces!! That changed on Thanksgiving!! They follow her around with her chicken piece and try to lick at it!!
Once they figured out Mom was not interested in sharing, (and they can't gum a piece of raw chicken) they moved back to the 'milk nozzles' :-)
They do get to share in Miss's daily "Calicum addition". I mix cottage cheese and water (usually a bit of yogurt too) in a bowl and add water. Miss drinks the water and gets all the extras along with it. The pups now dive into this morning ritual with great zest!! Puppy Mush is the next on the menu!!!
