Chocolate Lab PUPPIES born 6/24/2019
Moose Pekar of Greendale, MH x Lorken's Return to Sender "Elma"

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.

Below July 2 and a pup sleeping by mom's paw.  On the 4th of July the little boy below was sleeping in my arms.  Eyes are not open yet but they are about twice their birth size now.


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.

July 17 and 18th.  The pups have grown enough to be able to climb out of the pool they were born in.  They now live in a sectioned off area of our kitchen and are enjoying the air conditioning in this excessively warm weather.  Mom still feeds them but they have also had some ground puppy chow added to their puppy milk mixture.  They love it.  We have two large bowls but they crowd around like they have never eaten before.  One pup climbed to the top of the dish to play king of the mountain while dining.  The other bowl had less eating but they still have to walk through it.  The last photo shows them sleeping in their area of the kitchen without the pool now.
