1 week old

One week old yesterday, but acting more like 10 days old.  These pups are amazingly strong and vigorous, especially when I am doing BioSensor exercises with them.  However, in other ways, they look their age - namely the amount of pigment and lack of any eye opening yet.  At 1 week, 3 pups were over 2 lbs (Blue, Yellow and Purple).  The pups gained 12-16 oz their first week and weights ranged from 1 lb 13 oz (Orange) to 2 lbs 2 oz (Yellow).  The pups are starting to toilet on their own and trying to walk.  Monday evening, I moved them from the pool into a small ex-pen set up on top of a blanket, since it was getting too hot and stuffy in the pool.  Juliette is doing great, producing lots of milk and eagerly consuming 6 cups of high calorie kibble plus a hard boiled egg and a few other goodies.
