Notice how much larger the puppies are now after two weeks. They are beginning to open their eyes and ears as well as stand on their back legs and move around. It won't be long before they are walking and playing. Also, the puppies received their first real meal today. We start them out with evaporated milk mixed with chopped Pedigree beef dinner. Four of the puppies loved it, but the other four were not ready to try it.

The puppies are growing bigger by the minute. They are still in the stage where their eyes and ears are closed and so they eat and sleep and grow. These puppies are doing very well and are progressing perfectly through the stages. They do not like the summer heat so we have to keep it as cool as we can in the whelping pen in order to combat the hotter weather outside. We have fans and an evaporative cooler in the room as well as cooling pads for the puppies to lie on if they want to help mitigate the heat.
