January 6, 2018

Puppies are four days old in this picture. They have learned to keep in a bundle when mom is away. All the puppies are exceptionally quiet most of the time. But, when the pups want their mom, some of the pups show their discomfort by vocalizing. There are two louder pups in this bunch, with the most consistently vocal pup being "Hot Tin Roof." He gets somewhat confused when he gets too far from mom and wants to find her. His first reaction is to yelp out so that she will know where he is and help him, which she does. The puppies all know when mom is around and are super healthy and already almost walking on all fours. This is a very healthy group of puppies with great muscle tone and propelling power.
