First Responses to Voice Sounds (and Wrassling!)

It seems a couple of the puppies are beginning to notice noises.  They pick up their heads when I talk to them, and some will startle at sudden louder sounds

In this video (about 2.5 minutes long), I call to the puppies to see if they'll respond.  I use a higher-pitched voice (lol... it's my "puppy voice" and quite silly, so please ignore it!) because they seem to be able to hear higher pitches to start.

Note that they're also becoming interested in people (namely me in this video) and are starting to wag their tails. :)   Their interest in and affection for people is natural to the Labrador breed and will increase with their abilities (developmentally) to show that affection. 

Heehee... looks like they have a good start!  (Puppies!)

That is so cool. They are developing more vocalizations as well. I was glad when Mr. Blue finally decided to join the party.

I am having to giggle. My roommates cats are in the room with me and the female came up and starting meowing at the screen, while I watched this video.

OMG is there anything more adorable? I think not! It really looks like Mr. Blue came because you called him! And those tails wagging... There are no words.
