Puppies are two weeks old

Today the pups are two weeks old. This is Spring, the pink girl. She was the first born and was 12 oz at birth, 1 lb 8 oz at 1 week and is now 2 lbs 10 oz. All the pups have full eye and nose trim and all have what I would call medium spotting.

This is Summer, the red boy. He was the second puppy born and also weighed 12 oz at birth. At 1 week he was 1 lb 12 oz and is now 2 lbs and 14 oz.

Winter is the Lt Blue girl. She was third puppy born and has a patch on her right ear as you can see. At birth Winter weighed 14 oz. At 1 week she was 1 lb 12 oz and now weighs 2 lbs and 14 oz.

Last but not least is green girl Autumn. She was 14 oz at birth, 1 lb 12 oz at 1 week and is now 2 lbs 10 oz. Autumn has a patch on her left ear.

This next week will be exciting as well as a little scary for me. This is the time when I can begin watching for signs that the pups are able to hear. Their eyes are beginning to open and they will continue to do so in the coming days. They are trying to get up on their feet and soon their wobbly legs will become more steady as they travel around the baby pool.

Soon they will outgrow their enclosure and I will have to set up the play pen to contain them. I don't know how much longer BG will want to continue to nurse them but they will probably be ready for something more in the next week or two. One thing is for sure, they are growing and changing every day. I look forward to seeing what each new day will bring.
