Myleigh Latest Litter Summer 2011
Puppies at 6-7 weeks!
Skipnstone announces 9 Beautiful Puppies - 7 boys and 2 girls, 5 white (partie) and 4 black puppies, curly and wavy!
Day 3 Myleigh wants them as close to her as possible! Can you find 5 white puppies at the front and 4 black puppies at the back?
Rheo keeping watch over "his" brood! Myleigh doesn't mind if he is in the room - just not in the pool! Day 5 already too big for the crate! Day 7 almost all have doubled their birth weight!
Day 5 Pictures!
All the puppies have their eyes open! In 2 weeks they have tripled and quadrupled their birth weights! About half are walking already. Ears are open! Pups remain in the whelping box in the quiet computer room! We have had lots of visitors already! Next weekend they will be moving up to the kitchen in the big sunny bay window. Myleigh is eating so much food! She has kept her pups very clean!
Notice the rolls when the puppy lies down! So chubby!
Almost Week 4!
I can't believe how quickly the time is flying. Pups have migrated up to the sunny bay in the kitchen and seem to have grown to fit the new 4'X8' pen. Check out how fluffy they are becoming. Myleigh nurses them lying and sitting and standing! She keeps them so clean. Pups are starting to play with the big dogs and each other. I can feel the start of little sharp teeth!
Day 8 Starting Week 2
Puppies have Shrek 4 Names:
Shrek and Fiona, Queen Lillian and King Artie, Felicia and Dragon and Boots!

Saturday July 10th
Right on time! Most of the puppies have their eyes open today - Ears will be opening in the next few days. They are all strong and starting to be able to lift their bellies off the ground - soon they will be running!
Sunday July 18th - 3 weeks of age
Puupies are moving around - up on their legs. Some can even wag their tail when walking - not so easy to do! We have noticed that they are learning to sit on their own and are looking around trying to distinguish all the blurry pictures that they now can see. All of their ears are now open. Puppies are starting to go to one end of the pen to toilet! Myleigh was at the Skipnstone spa today - she loved all the attention and I'm sure feels much better for being refreshed! Myleigh is loving all of her many visitors! Of course she thinks the visits are all about her. She can't stop smiling!
See below how the puppies are growing!
Myleigh thinks that there is not much room at the Milk Bar. Puppies have to learn to share!
Fiona is waiting for Shrek
Lillian really wants more sleep!
Felicia has her eyes open - can you see them?
Shrek is looking for Donkey!
Dragon is licking her paw - hope she doesn't burn it!
King Artie is sitting on his throne!
Boots has an almost totally black nose!
