Puppies Almost 3 Weeks Old
By host @ 12:31 PM :: 1028 Views

The puppies will be 3 weeks old this week.   They are changing so much and every day brings new accomplishments.      Within the last week, their eyes and ears have opened and they are starting to walk around the whelping box.   They are also starting to act like dogs – barking, growling, wagging their tails and mouthing one another.    It was so cute to see one puppy smelling Aaron’s hand and wagging his tail at Aaron.   It was as if the puppy was finally able to see Aaron after a couple weeks of just smelling him.   ‘Oh, yes, I recognize you by your smell!’

When they see momma coming they get very excited as they are always, always hungry.   Poor River and Scout look very tired and if they stay in the whelping box the puppies will nurse non-stop.   More and more the moms will feed the pups and jump out to join their ‘people’ family.   I have taken to sleeping with my television set on to try and block out the sounds of the puppies.   Even though the pups are downstairs and on the other side of the house, I would wake up with every distressed cry.   Having the television on seemed to cover up the puppy sounds and now I’m getting decent sleep too.

We have finished our early neurological stimulation exercises but continuing to socialize the pups is very important.   We’ve added colored collars to the pups and it’s easier to make sure that each puppy is getting handled on a regular basis.    The pups receive wormer medication at 2,4,6 & 8 weeks.   I have heard that if the mother has worms the pups will too.   I don’t ever remember having problems with intestinal worms but better safe than sorry.  

I ordered microchips for all the puppies and we’ll be micro-chipping them as soon as I have a helper.   All our puppies will be sold with registered microchips.    If they are every lost, there will always be a tie back to the owner and the breeder.

Our next, big endeavor will be moving the pups from the whelping box to a pen.   They are getting close to climbing out of the whelping box.   I would like to delay this as long as possible but it won’t be long before someone finally scales the wall.   That will be my project for this weekend.

We were fortunate to get together Abby, Blue, Cesar, Tessa, and Scout for a play date.  It was great to see how all the puppies were growing and changing.  Their new owners have been hard at work training and it shows.  It was a wonderful opportunity for us to get together and trade tips and stories.
