Here are some great puppy pics. It was easy for the first 3 1/2 weeks - Maggie did all the work. Then the fun began. We started them on formula, baby cereal and then puppy chow starting at about 3 1/2 weeks. that meant “food feasts every 4 hours or so. And.... you know what goes along with a food feast. Fun, fun, fun. when the weather was nice enough, we took them outside. They just loved that. Watching them go one by one was hard - but they all went to good families and I still get to see 3 of them all the time.



Sat - Nov 5th - Just Pups - Mom's on a potty break

Sun - Nov 6th - Mom's tired today. She's not eating well, so we're giving her cottage cheese, yogurt and egg nog.

Mon - Nov 7th - the pups had their dew claws removed today. Our breeder, Diann came over to do that for us. I was the assistant. It wasn't too difficult, but was a little traumatic for the pups. As I held them they cried during the procedure, but as soon as we were done (about 3 minutes for each pup) they stopped crying. So I'm hoping it only hurt for a moment.




Nov 7th - This was the first day we noticed pigment in their noses and paw pads. It literally happened overnight.



Tues - Nov 8th - they are getting bigger by the moment. We weigh them everyday and they gain an ounce or so each day.

Thurs - Nov 10th - sometimes mag gets a break and the pups just sleep in a big pile.


Sat - Nov 12th - They are just growing by the moment. At birth they weighed a total of 6.06# and today they total 11.6#. They have nearly doubled their birth weight. Maggie is always ravenous and eats at least 4 times a day. Her favorite is scrambled eggs mixed with her puppy dog food. The highlight of our day is puppy weigh-in time (what does that tell you?) Maggie is spending more and more time "out of the box" while the pups are sleeping in longer stints. Mag is starting to run and jump, and getting back to her old self (oh no!!)
