Dec 21, 2014 – Not a whole lot to report just yet. The puppies are now 4.5 – 5 days old. They eat, they sleep, they eat, they sleep, they eat, they sleep. They curl up by mom or with each other. They have been doing great taking turns- there are usually 3 or 4 pups on Aura and 2 or 3 snuggling with each other. All pups added about 33% to their weight in just the last couple of days.
I can put my hand in with them and they squirm around for about 4 seconds and pass back out right in my hand. They know “the hand”. They must think “Oh here is that warm person with no milk for me. I guess I’ll just go back to …. Zzzzzz……..”.
I should probably note that the pups start off mostly black and as time goes on the colors will change. Also, as seen in the pic, blue has a tiny white spot on his chest and that will go away as well. 1 or 2 of the girls have white toes- this all happened on the B litter. (some people really like or dislike the white, but please disregard it because it won’t last).
Another side note: the C litter boys are spoken for.
We’ll get pictures of the girls up here soon!
