Tomorrow the puppies will be two weeks old, they're all doing great! Tonight we weighed the pups for the last daily weigh in, from this point on we weight just once a week ( they no longer stay still on the scales so I'm happy to just battle with them once a week now) biosensor exercises are complete as most of the pups have now opened their eyes (squinting) and are getting up on all four legs ( actually taking a step hasn't happened) I dewormed the puppies this evening, and momma as well just in case. The largest pup is Hunter ( chocolate male) he weighed 3lbs 3oz, the others are between 2 lbs 14oz and 3lbs, so I guess the puppies are sharing the milk! Josie is also doing well, and gained 13oz this week, which doubled her birth weight! I have weaned myself from bottle feeding, she is now only given one supplement a day, which I have allowed the rest of the family to take part in. Lulu is having more time away from the nest, even though her food ration has tripled from pre whelping, she is starting to get thin, making milk instead of nourishing herself.... One more week Lulu and we will begin the slow weaning of puppies to mushed kibble!
