Litter March 2011

Week 3

Sunday 10th April 2011

The puppies are two weeks old today and so far so good.  They had all gained between 8ozs to 1 pound 1oz when they were weighed today.  The following two pictures show just how much the puppies change from birth to 2 weeks.

This picture is of the smallest female taken hours after she was born.

This picture was taken tonight 2 weeks after she was born.  The difference is truly amazing.

This little boy had eaten too much and had tummy ache.  He was fast asleep on my chest nuzzling my neck for comfort.

The puppies had their first visitors yesterday and Steffi was so proud to show off her brood.  Will & Hazel who have had 2 puppies from us before out of Madi's litters, and who are having a male from Steffi's litter,  called in on their way back from holiday. They were not allowed into the puppy room, they just stood at the gate and looked in.

This was the first attempt at some puppy porridge.  It was a little messy and I am sure more was wasted than eaten, but things will soon improve - we hope!

The puppies woke Ian up at 5.00am this morning so we thought that it was time they had their first taste of rice pudding.  We put two tins in the puppy feeder which were devoured in 15 minutes!!  They then had a milky mid-morning feed followed by a Pedigree puppy porridge lunch.  As you can see from the following pictures, we think that they are coping with the change over quite well.

Steffi continues to be a brilliant mother.  Her wound is quite remarkable, it is healing up very well by itself.  She has to go to the vets again on Monday and hopefully there will not be the need for any surgery to repair it.
