One week old today and the little grubs are growing fast and fat.
They are crawling around more, trying to figure out how to make their legs work.
Puppies at this age are still blind and mostly deaf.
Their limbs are weak and uncoordinated and they mostly sleep and eat, but they also start exploring the world.
Despite their lack of sight and sound, there is a lot going on the minds of tiny puppies.
The first 12 weeks of life are the most critical for their development and a great deal happens before their eyes ever open.
Their sense of smell works just fine and scent brings the world to them, even in their sleep.
Their minds are active, open and they dream often.
In their searches for food, warmth and comfort, their muscles develop and they learn how to interact with their siblings.
They bark, yip, growl and stretch themselves out into the world....
Until they all find a good spot.
What do puppies who have never seen the world dream about?
What do any of us dream about?
