Early Neurological Stimulation

The puppies are three days old, so today is the day we start Early Neurological Stimulation. ENS is a set of of mildly stressful activities performed during a critical period of the puppy’s development. It has been found to make puppies more stress tolerant and physically healthier.

Puppies are here!

This evening we welcomed 8 beautiful puppies, four boys and four girls! They all look healthy so far and Macy is attending to them very well. A lot of folks on our list are hoping for girls, so we were a little worried when the score was 4 boys, 1 girl, but then the last three were all girls!

Here are their litter names and collar colors:

Bruno (brown), Jet (black), Indigo (blue), Ginger (orange), Greyson (grey), Ruby (red), Violet (purple), Amber (yellow).

More pictures in the coming days!

Getting Closer

We’re less than two weeks away from whelping day and Macy’s looking pretty, what shall I say…. rotund. She’s still active at times, but has been resting more and more these days. And I’m happy to report, I’ve been feeling some squirming!

The puppy count xray is scheduled for Tuesday the 20th. Probably no one wants to know how many more than me, so I am really looking forward to that day.

Macy may not be nesting yet, but I feel like I am.  I’ve been busy getting my supplies organized and preparing my paperwork. We’ll be ready when these pups make their appearance!
