1.5 Week Old Puppies

Puppies smell “mom” and make their way to the “milk bar”!

Aww… Miss Lavender seems lost in finding mom! How cute to see pups squirm to get to the “milk bar”! Mom is Avery; pups sired by our boy, CH Rooster.

While it may seem like a good idea to help this puppy, it is so important for the puppies’s development to move on their own. If helped, which I frequently do with my puppies, it can lead to development delays in learning how to use their legs to walk later. Having had this problem with my last litter of puppies, I will, from now on, cheer them from afar as they learn to move on their own!

P.S. Thank you, Sandy, for sending me this vid! Too cute to NOT share!!
