Here are the one week mug shots. For comparison purposes, I have below their 1 day and 1 week photos side by side. The eye and nose pigment is really coming in nicely on all the puppies. Jo Jo and Sadie have the most to fill, but given how much they gained in just one week, I would guess they will ultimately have solid colored noses and eye trim.
The puppies had more visitors today. Dave and Margot came for a second visit along with their son and daughter in law - Alex & Brittany. Rhani decided all of them were ok after they all gave her ample treats! They were all surprised by how strong the puppies are. Besides the visit, it was mug shot day, they had their 5th day of Early Neuro exercises, and their usual weigh in's. I was a little surprised that only Sadie and Lizzy actually doubled their birth weight by today. But both Maxwell and Jo Jo are within an ounce of doing so and Rita is within in 1.5 ounces, so I think we are good. Everyone has gained weight every day and they are vigorous and content. That's Jo Jo in the scale below!
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 saved them off as pdf's and was reviewing them last night. It was a good refresher on all kinds of things and brought back lots of good memories. Looking forward to Imagine memories too!
