All of the puppies are healthy and gaining weight. They weighed between 19 & 21 ounces at birth.
They’ve been quite active today, feeding and climbing on each other.

The puppies are one day old in the following pictures.
(taken 3/17/2017)

Note: The color on the puppies is nail polish so we can tell them apart during the first few weeks. We keep track of their weight daily to make sure they are all eating and growing. When they're this young, it's hard to tell them apart.

The puppies are now a week old and are growing fast. Most of their time is spent sleeping or nursing. They’ve gained about half a pound this week. They have not yet opened their eyes, and their ears are still closed. They crawl around, finding their way based only on their sense of smell. They like sleeping in a group, and like to have their head on top of a brother or sister.

The puppies are one week old in the following pictures.

The puppies moved from the whelping room to the large kennel, so they have more room to play. They are growing fast and love to play. They still get tired pretty quickly, and then they want to sleep on top of each other (or us)!
