The pups eyes have opened and we'll start to see some big changes within the next week or so. For the most part they remain flat out, sound asleep between feedings. They're just beginning to walk but remain very wobbly, fall after a few steps, give up and return to sleep where the land. The males seem to be doing a little better in the walking department than the females. If history repeats itself, and it seems it will, somebody will manage to make it out of the whelping pool in about a week and a half... I'll put them back in and within a day or two they'll all be out.
I'll get some photos of each pup Monday, open up their individual puppy pages and begin their weekly photo shoots from there. And of course we'll have lots of photos and slide shows here on the blog throughout the weeks ahead. I'll also get them weighed again Monday if my scale will cooperate one more time. Not having a good feeling about the ability to weigh though. The scale wasn't working again Friday when I had intended to weigh Purple. Technical difficulties! I hate them :-( I had some brief computer issues with the last litter and let me tell ya that was aggravating. So in comparison, if I can't get it to work I guess I can deal with a week of not having the scale I had counted on. I ordered another one, however it's not scheduled to arrive till sometime between the 17th and 20th. Well, I guess that's about it for tonight...
Ah... one more thing! And this is directed @ Jenny and Jenny. While I don't know any of you personally, I've developed the beginnings of a relationship with each of you through emails and phone conversations. The problem is, and it's not really a problem because I love reading the comments to the posts but because I've got two Jenny's I never know for sure which one I'm replying to. I've noticed that Jenny and Marc sometimes comment together and I've noticed that Jenny comments but don't know if that's consistent. Sooo, maybe if the Jenny's out there would include the first letter of their last name with their comments??? That would work ;-)
So that wraps up my rambling for the evening. Your pups are doing great. I hope all of you are too and that you're getting things in place for your new family members. I understand several of you have already been shopping! ;-)
