Day 5…

Puppy Update

Puppy Update:

So excited that as of last night’s daily weighing (day 4), ALL puppies have hit that one pound weight gain! In truth, all but one puppy was over one pound on Day 3 but as of Day 4, ALL are now! YEAH!! Deja’s milk has come in and with the puppies nursing, the hardened areas along her mammary chain have softened. In other words… The “milk bar” is officially open!

With puppies, that first 24 hour period is SO CRITICAL but after making it through that first 24 hours, that first week is very critical also! I am very relieved to know all pups are gaining weight so thought I would pass along this happy news.

And for future reference…

The girls are:

  1. Red Collar,
  2. Pink Collar,
  3. Purple Collar,
  4. Yellow Collar.

The boys are:

  1. Dark Blue Collar
  2. Light Blue Collar
  3. Black Collar

Yesterday, momentarily, Deja decided to sit up while nursing puppies! They are way too young for this (and she only did it for a moment before lying down with them) but I was able to catch this photo. Silly girl!!

    1. Deja is SUCH a good mommy! She is watchful over them all but also very calm. She takes care of the puppies but still gets to run with the other dogs here too. Beanie, our “fake” Golden (French Bulldog) THINKS they sound just like baby bunnies! Silly Beanie!
