Hello, World! [wave] Here's a look at these little personalities I met late last week. . . .eyes and ears are open! and sights and sounds are a wonder for these Coco puppies. Development is happening at lightening speed now. Even just this morning, pups are moving all over, wagging tails, "talkin", and checkin' out the new toys and bowls in their pen. But first. . . .let's look at the past week. . .
Still with eyes closed, pups were finishing up their ENS exercises and beginning to use their voices.
Early walking, a little wobbly at first, but getting stronger daily . . . . we've improved our surfaces the past two seasons and we're seeing better muscle development at an earlier age. . . supporting good leg and hip position for those developing joints. We're really encouraged about what we're seeing, and are looking forward to charting the progress in these litters with these changes. Here's a look at only a little over a week old. . . .
And first puppy baths, lotsa little hands a dryin' and holdin'. . . . and time for growin' up as we removed the heat lamp as pups develop their shiver reflex to keep warm on their own. Well, this usually means a pack-o'-puppies in a pile!
And only days later from our first video, (about 11 days old) . . . . Legs are stronger and puppies are well off their tummies and moving more fluidly. They can get where they want to go!
But there's much more to come!! You should have seen these pups motate this morning! (sorry, but I didn't have my IPhone to record then! I'll catch that footage for you next time!) :D
So for now, happy puppy dreaming to our Coco Families! These pups are wonderful kids!
