This week has gone by so fast, and, again, I have found myself way behind with posts. Sorry about that as there is a lot to report. Let's start with Tuesday's puppies, who are now one week old. They have already doubled their weight at birth:
Volt (lime) was 221 gr at birth, now 515 gr
Vincent (blue) was 232, now 470
Viola (pink) was 210, now 465
Vonnie (yellow)was 215, now 460
Vivica (red) was 232, now 470 gr
The first few days were a bit difficult as Tuesday was producing too much milk and puppies could not keep up with her "production". She was uncomfortable, but this quickly passed and things have normalized.
Tuesday has a good appetite but she has not touched dry food yet. She has been living on raw venison, mixed with rice and egg, plus she drinks goat milk. Occasionally she gets several cubes of cheese. She turned out to be a superb mother, and so far she has been staying with the pups in the whelping box all the time. They are spotless clean. What I like about her that she not too possessive of her pups. She completely trusts us, and even if dogs bark outside my den, she does not get too upset about it
Happy Easter Everybody!
