CURRENT LITTER PHOTOS
Newborn to 1 week. The pups were born weighing approximately 1 pound each. They have their eyes and ears sealed shut at this age. They are able to crawl but their bellies remain on the ground while doing so. The eyes won't open until about 10 days. The faces are rather flat and their ears are short thick flaps of skin right now. Click on photo for larger picture.
On July 9th the pups are 2 weeks old. Their eyes are open but they really cannot see much of anything. They struggle to take a few steps with their legs under them but they still sleep most of the time. The have bodies that are out of proportion for an adult dog but they are growing fast.
July 12 and 13th. The pups are still 2 weeks old and teeth are not quite in yet. They still basically sleep and eat. At least seem to like laying on their back like mom! Because there are a lot of pups we decided to give them some puppy milk as a supplement. They are getting the idea of licking the milk rather than trying to nurse but get pretty messy. Mom licks them off when they are done.
