Colt/Echo Puppies 4 Weeks

Posted by Toby on May 30, 2016 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)
Since our last update, the puppies have become much more mobile, staying awake for longer periods and need more space to play. The puppies play sessions involve more wrestling with each other, interacting with the other dogs and increased interest in their toys. They have also started eating solid food and are also doing well with that.

Colt and Echo's four boys are doing fantastic and becoming more mobile each day. Between 9 and 14 days their eyes gradually opened. Around the same time their ears started opening and we could see them twitch their ears at new sounds. They are now walking, although still wobbly on their feet, are starting to interact/play with each other and starting to vocalize.

Colt and Echo's four boys are a week old today. They are growing in leaps and have more than doubled their birth weight already. While their eyes and ears are still shut tight, they are crawling around the whelping pen more and getting stronger. We are also doing early neurological stimulation between days 3 and 16, as well as introducing new scents daily.

It's been ten years since we had our first litter at Woodcreek. It's been quite the journey with many ups, downs and everything in between. We've met a lot of wonderful people over the years and stayed friends with many.

Happy 10th birthday to Dexter, Jazz, Pax, Finn, Annabelle, Ranger and Lulu.

The puppies turned 7 weeks old today. They are becoming more and more active every day and enjoy the play time out. Our dining room becomes puppy play time central 3 to 4 times per day. They enjoy playing with numerous toys along with running through tunnels, climbing across items such as a metal clothing rack base, skateboard, saucer sled, bin full of bottles, wooden shoe rack, etc. They have also had a chance to meet another breed of puppy and enjoy their visits with new people. A new album is in the works for Ruse and Buck Puppies 6+ Week photos and is available for viewing under the Photos tab.
