Juliet and her pups are doing so well!! Everyone seems to be eating and gaining weight- including Juliet. The puppies were 2 weeks old last Sunday(2/24/13). All of the puppies have theireyes open now, but most still have pretty cloudy vision; they do respond to your voice, though! Obviously they don’t know their names just yet, but when you walk into the room and talk to them,all their little heads turn to look at you. So cute :)
Drew and Mom weighed the puppies sometime last week. Romeo is currently the biggest puppy and weighs 4 lbs! Portia and Horatio are the smallest and weigh about 2-3 lbs each.
This is the first litter of puppies we have fostered where the mother isalive and able to feed/take care of her babies. No bottle-feeding for this litter (thank goodness!). Bottle-feeding is so time-consuming,especially when the puppies are this big and hungry. By the time you finished feeding them one meal, it would be about time for them to eat again! We’revery thankful to have Juliet. She’s a great mama dog :)
Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more updates on the puppies!
