12 week old puppies

I had this picture of France when he was 12 weeks old. That was quite a while ago -- April 2011. 
France is all grown up now and is in Phase 0 of his formal training. He is tall and lanky, just like his Daddy, Ozzie. And France has a sweet, gentle personality. He was fairly timid for most of his puppyhood, but seemed to come into his own just about 5 or 6 weeks before his recall. France is the first of our puppies to actually be recalled. Both Maren and Silky were cc'd at the last minute.

Now for Dan: Here's Dan, who will be 12 weeks old tomorrow. And, just for his birthday, he gets to meet Dr. Vet and get his 12-week puppy shots. Oh, boy!
Dan is settling in. He's been here for nearly 2 weeks. Dan is super cuddly and wants to spend all day on someone's lap. We're working on his oral fixation -- seems to need to have something in his mouth all the time and he doesn't really care if it's a nylabone or one of my fingers. He's never met a leaf he didn't like.

Dan's quite confident, walks pretty well on the leash and is mastering relieving out doors - although that is still a work in progress.
