Well, the last week! I must apologise for not posting more pictures, but fast puppies and dull weather makes for rubbish pics! This is the best I could do...I hope you enjoy them! We have loved having these little terrors in our house, although it'll be very nice to have some peace and quiet! Looking forward to seeing these beauties grow up!
Weeks 5 & 6
I'm very sorry to all those waiting for puppy pictures! Dull days and fast puppies have made picture taking difficult, but with a lot of help from UKSA President Christina Savage today we stacked and assessed the litter, and did a personality test on them, to see how it all looks. We had a lot of puppy fun in between :) Below are the official stacked pictures of each puppy, plus some just for fun! The side on views are to assess the body conformation, then lifted up to see that front and rear legs are nice and straight, and front/side profile shots of the head to see how their expression and head is.
The pups are 3 weeks old, and starting to get more active! They've now got more space, and today had their first meal of finely minced turkey mix. It's fascinating watching them change as they grow, their faces are becoming more different, as are their markings. Here are some photos from today, with more to follow :)
Eyes are open, and their little personalities are beginning to shine through! I'm looking forward to getting to know them :)
All the pups are gaining weight nicely - not much really changes with them in this first week, they get a lot bigger, but eyes and ears are still shut, and they are still very vulnerable. 10 days is the turning point, everything seems to happen at once - they begin to stand, their eyes start to open and ears too, and it snowballs from there! Photos will follow, just beneath are some of them today at 1 week old...enjoy!
