2 weeks old

Note yellow collar Ellie sleeping on her back

2 weeks old and doing very well.  The pups gained approximately 1 lb each last week with a combination of nursing and bottle feeding.  Maggie Mae is still the big pup at 3 lbs.  Penny is currently the small pup at 2 lbs 6 oz.  Rita, the weak pup at birth, is doing great - you can't pick her out from her littermates.  Yoko is currently eating 7 1/2 c of high calorie kibble plus a hard boiled egg per day.  The pups have had their third toenail trim, first worming, and lots of cuddles.  Daily BioSensor exercises continue through Friday (Day 16).  Maggie, Pepper, Lucy and Ellie all have their eyes almost open.  The pups are doing more wobbly walking and this weekend I plan to set up a small pen in my bedroom as a transition before moving into the big puppy pen in the main part of the house.  Plus easier to keep my bedroom extra warm.
