The puppies start to use their hind legs instead of crawling forwards. After every action there is just one thing to do - to relax... ... the position doesn't matter... ... even if it isn't always very cushy (is it?). Sleeping at mothers side after a try to climb out of the box! At the end of the second week the eyes and ears start to be "open" - but this is not tantamount to seeing or hearing... ... and therefore they cannot see the lovely snowdrops that show us: spring is on its way!
