5 Weeks Old

 The puppies turned 5 weeks old today. They are so full of life and so much fun to play with. I am really starting to get attached to them. I know when they all go home Im going to be so sad. Fortunately, my brother is getting one so I wont have to travel far to see her. Here are different pictures I took throughout the week of them.

4 Weeks Old

The puppies are 4 weeks old now. They are all eating puppy chow great and only nursing around once a day. They are starting to play and interact a lot more. They love being around humans now! Their personalities are really starting to show. Here is a video of them 2 days ago when we realized we had no use for the whelping box anymore. 

Here is one little guy playing with some tennis balls we gave them. 

This little man is going to be kennel trained by the time he goes home! haha Just kidding but they do go and sleep in the kennel a lot on their own.

3 Weeks Old

 Today the puppies had their first vet appointment. They all checked out great. We were given the go ahead to introduce them to puppy chow for dinner. The vet said they would probably just play in it, and gradually start to eat it. Well, he was wrong! They ALL immediately started devouring it. Here are some  pictures of them eating. 

Here is a short video showing how dirty they got when they ate...

And after dinner, they all crashed!

We are Walking!

We let the puppies sleep on Baileys big bed for about 30 minutes today after she finished nursing them. They loved it! We had to wake them all up to move them back to their box.

All 13 puppies have their eyes open and are starting to learn to walk. It amazes me how they can be so much better from one night to the next morning. Soon, they will be running! Below is a short video showing some of them walking last night.

2 Weeks Old

Today the puppies are 2 weeks old! Wow, they have grown so fast. They started to open their little eyes today and are trying to walk. I think within the next 2 days all of their eyes will be completely open. Here they are, all 13, in the laundry basket while we cleaned out their box. Soon, they wont all fit anymore. Im thinking a second laundry basket will be needed for our 3 week vet appointment.

The puppies aren't nursing as frequently as before and Bailey is able to take longer breaks away from them now. One of the easiest ways for us to make sure everyone is eating is to separate them by color. In this picture all 6 black pups are eating and 2 of the yellow pups are sleeping on top.
