Wrestling

The pups are starting to play. They are having wrestling matches. They paw at each other which often results in tumbling onto to someone else. They are standing more and taking more steps. They are very cute to watch.

Walking

They have all started to open their eyes. They are also standing and taking a couple of wobbly steps. We removed the pig rails this morning to give them more room. The bigger of the two girls escaped last night trying to find more room. I found her just out side of the whelping box, apparently quite pleased to have found some space where no one smacked her in the face. They seem more content to stay in the whelping box now that they have the extra room. I am sure they will want to do more exploring once they have gotten a little better at using their legs.

2 Weeks Old!

They are two weeks old today. They are growing fast. Both boys are starting to open their eyes. I suspect the girls will do the same soon. They are also starting to learn to stand and take a step or two on their wobbly legs. They are getting harder to take individual picture of since they want to move all over the place.

They Grow So Fast

The pups are growing so fast. They got their first nail trimming today. They were very good though very squirmy. They move around alot more even though their eyes are not yet open. Rally continues to be a good mom. I am sure I will have more to write as the week goes on.

1 Week Old!

I meant to actually write this on their 1 week birthday but didn't get a chance. I did take their pictures that day though. They are so cute and it is so easy to just spend time watching them and petting them. They are very squeaky babies. They have quite a "squeak" vocabulary. "I'm eating", "Your standing on me", "I'm going to take a nap", "Brother is hitting me" Rally is a great mom. She takes little breaks from the babies but spends most of her time with them. The pups have doubled their weight this week and are continuing to gain. I have also noticed they are starting to try to stand or at least get thier back legs under them. I am sure I will have more to say as the week goes on as they are starting to do more.

Dewclaw Day

Rally and the pups are doing well. The puppies are gaining weight every day. Today they went to the vet to have their dewclaws removed. Rally went for a walk as the vet removed them so she wouldn't hear them squeak as they were removed. The pups don't miss them, they are happy nursing and napping with mom. You can see the reds are starting look more red every day.

Puppies 1 and 2
Well, at 10:46pm Rally let out a quite a scream and then continued to scream with each contraction until out popped puppy number 1. Puppy 1 is a red boy and no sooner did I get him cleaned and weighed, 9 oz, then out popped number 2. Didn't really see the clock but I think it was 10:51pm or so. Puppy 2 is a black boy, 10 oz. Didn't even get to finish this and out pops puppy 3 at 11:31pm, red girl, 10 oz. Now we wait for Puppy 4 to make its debut.

Any Time Now

We are waiting and watching to see if Rally will have her pups soon. We have fresh batteries in the camera and have gathered everything we need so it is easy to find. Rally feels like she is ready pop, she is gigantic. It looks like she has lots of milk. So we keep waiting and watching. Hopefully she will not keep us all in suspense for much longer.

Almost Ready

Rally had her x-ray today. We saw four skulls and four spines. They are all lined up and facing the same direction. The vets wanted another look at their heartbeats so we also had an ultrasound. You can see in the picture that the one puppy that cooperated and didn't squirm and kick the whole time has a nice strong heartbeat.
