Puppies are growing quickly! three of them are allready over 2 pounds, with the other two not far behind,even little Tim has doubled his birthweight in five days. I have given Lulu a spot (gated off from the other dogs) that she can come and go freely from her pups, with all their weight gain i dont want to stress her milk supply, she is now eating double her prewhelping ration. Puppies have began "superdog training" aka biosensor exercises, this will continue until they are two weeks old, at which time the window of oppurtunity for early neurological stimulation closes. This also gets Lulu accustomed to us handling her pups, exercises last less than 30 seconds and are done when we weigh the pups nightly. The whelping box is washed down once daily, and blankets are laundered however Lulu is doing a fabulous job keeping the mess to a minimum. We will be accepting deposits to hold pups by the weekend, as they have proved themselves to be thriving and we look forward to welcoming five more families into our ever growing "minasview family". This is minasview's 12th litter, and Chuck is our 100th puppy!
