It was mug shot day for the puppies as it's been a week since the last photos. One of Maxwell's people, Riley, came over to help out! Rhani, after a few minutes of stink eye, settled down and was actually happy to see him! We took the puppies one at a time outside on the patio in the warm sunshine to take their mug shots, so they got their first breaths of fresh air too! After we finished, we took Baili and JoJo for a nice long walk together. Sorry, we failed to take photos of that! So here are the mug shots. At the end of today's post is a collage showing their one day and one week photos side by side so you can see how fast they change. Thanks, Riley, for your help!
Yadi tipped the scales this morning at 2 lbs and 5/8 oz! Waino and Goldy will likely double their birth weight tomorrow. Albert, who had the early set backs, continues to gain steadily now.
As already mentioned, Rhani is relaxing a bit. We resumed neighborhood walks today, and she enjoyed the short outings. However, when we rounded the cul de sac to head home, she picked up her pace, anxious to get back to the babies.
Thankfully Rhani has left Albert's tail alone. I am not one for gross photos, but this is amazing to me. I am very confident that Albert's tail was fine yesterday morning. I would have seen it while doing the ENS exercises. It was NOT subtle. When Stephen found it in the afternoon it was an angry red color that looked like blisters, but was not. It was "hard" as if scabbing had already started and no moisture at all. Less than 24 hours later, this is what it looks like. I have a lot of confidence in the use of Vetericyn, but I think this has more to do with how fast puppies develop at this stage, and some super regeneration of cells is at work here. Who knows? I'm just delighted that it is healing so quickly! (Getting that photo was not easy!)
Ok - enough of that! Here are the comparative mug shots for those of you who like to study puppy development. :). Who is your favorite? I think they are all pretty stinking cute!
Until next time....
I like to keep a diary of the puppies as much for myself as for prospective puppy buyers and interested friends. Sadly my blogs for Lucy's and Baili's litters are no longer available due to legacy systems, but I recently reviewed the Imagine Litter blog. It was a good refresher on all kinds of things and brought back lots of good memories. Looking forward to Cardinal memories too!
