Uschi's Puppies Almost Ready for their Jobs.

Uschi's puppies are now over seven weeks old and are getting very big and
developing their individual personalities. The puppies love running around
in the kraal and wrestling with each other. On hot days (it is summer in
Namibia) the puppies like to dig holes and lay in them to keep cool. They
are also in the process of teething and like to nibble on everything.

In the last couple of weeks the puppies have received their third and final
de-wormer while here at CCF. This final de-wormer will prevent against
internal parasites such as tapeworms and roundworms. This particular
de-wormer tastes like bananas which the puppies quite enjoyed. The puppies
have also received their second vaccination which prevents against
parainfluenza, canine distemper, and parvovirus. The puppies were so tired
from playing when Gaby gave their vaccination that they didn't even move.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!
