July 10, 2013:
In the last 4 days, the puppies have had a major growth spurt. All 9 puppies have gained over 2lbs! They are still sleeping quite a bit. Their time outdoors has increased from 10 minute intervals to 30 minutes. If the sun is out they end up lying beside the house to stay cool.
They’ve been weaned for a while and Aura’s milk is finally completely gone. They are no longer charging at her nipples and she has been playing with the pups a lot. The pups have been beating up their toys.
