Puppies! week 1 update

So, it has been a week and a half since Roxy had her pups, and we are officially in love! Roxy is being absolute fabulous Momma to her pups. They are all doing great, a couple are gaining weight a little slower, and so we have supplemented them twice, just to help keep them on track. They don't seem to like it, but Roxy loves the formula! LOL! She licks any tiny drop right off of them. :) Here are the pictures and the puppies stats at birth, and one week. Hopefully I will get the 2nd week update up on day 14 LOL!

Pup 1, a boy, weighed 4 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 8.9 ounces.


Pup 2, a boy, weighed 3.875 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 6.5 ounces.

Pup 3, a boy, weighed 4.24 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 8.6 ounces.

Pup 4, a girl, weighed 3.375 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 6.9 ounces.

Pup 5, a girl, weighed 3.75 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 6.4 ounces.

Pup 6, a boy, weighed 4.75 ounces at birth, and at week one weighs 8.5 ounces.

 A couple of pictures to help with scale.

OH they are so precious! and kudos to you for keeping such good records on weight. With that many, I'd feel good just keeping them fed and the pee pads cleaned up! :)

Right now, Roxy is pretty much doing everything. All we are doing is weighing them daily to make sure they are on track, and changing the pad once a day...Mom doesn't leave any evidence of the pups around. Natures way of protecting the pups, but yuck! LOL!
