Annie and Pups Update

Annie may have a new family! It’s still early in the process, but the thought makes me both happy for her (and happy and sad for me). If it’s a good match, it would be wonderful for her, but I will miss her.

Puppies continue to eat well, better every day. Now when I walk in the room most of them wake up, lick their chops, and look at me expectantly. THis morning, a couple actual climbed out of their sleeping area to get first dibs on the meal. Everyone has pretty big, tight bellies, which tells me they are probably still battling roundworm. Since I read recently that it’s best to worm them 10 days apart rather than 14, I decided to worm them today with Strongid. At two weeks they weighed about 2.5 lbs on average. Today at less than 4 weeks, they weighed bewtween 5.5-7.5 lbs – more than doubled! Isn’t that crazy? Clearly, mama is feeding them well. Sweeties’ puppies weighed this much at 6 weeks so these guys are shaping up to be larger dogs. Their personalities are starting to show and even though I don’t like to admit it, I’ve already got my favorite. Any guess on who it is?
