Introducing puppies to solid food is possibly one of the most hilarious, messy and frustrating aspects of dog breeding.
Some of them, like PB, take one look at the food dish and say “Oh boy, this is the life for me“, and dive in face first.
Other puppies, like Hugo, are curious about the concept, but unsure of the exact method involved.
Princess Vela took one look at the food dish, decided that eating out of it involved the potential for dirty paws, and insisted on being hand fed. We, being her lowly minions, of course complied.
In the midst of all the madness, Po, like his brother PB, calmly got down to the business of eating as much as possible. He was very methodical about it.
The only one unimpressed was Jacques, who reasonably decided that he had a perfectly good buffet on tap in the form of his mother, and that more of his siblings eating solid food equaled more milk time for him. He sniffed the food, but decided it wasn’t up to par. We’ll try again tonight.
