Last night I noticed the puppies were starting to get up on all fours instead of creeping. This morning I saw even more progress and captured this video of Jet. He’s still shakey and unsteady, but look at the full extension of the front legs. Great job Jet!
Look how the puppies lined themselves up today. Now if only they would arrange themselves by color….
Each Sunday I will try to post individual pictures of the pups. Here is our first set.
The pups are one week old today and doing great. All the puppies are steadily gaining weight and getting stronger. I had been sleeping next to the whelping box, but last night moved back to my own bed. These pups are now strong enough to move back to mom or the rest of the litter if they get separated, and no longer need to be rescued by me.
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.

Because that’s what we’re all here for….. pictures!!
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!
Macy’s huge and getting uncomfortable. We’re expecting these puppies to make their appearance before this weekend is over. We’ll keep you posted!
Can you see the little skulls and spines? It looks like 8, possibly 9 puppies!
Today’s the big day. Hopefully the x ray will get a nice clear picture and we’ll have a good idea how many puppies to expect.
