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.

Puppy 4
At 11:59pm Rally finally had puppy 4, a red girl weighing in at 8 oz. Mom and pups are doing well. Humans are exhausted and in need of sleep.

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.

We have reached the point where Rally could whelp any day now. We are watching her closely for signs that she is getting ready. She looks like she is starting to get milk. She sleeps in the "beached whale" position almost all the time now, mostly because she can not curl up around her gigantic belly. We have seen the puppies kick and we can feel then moving around in the mornings and evenings. Every evening she scouts out potential whelping spots. So far the whelping pen is actally winning as the better place but she still checks every night for new ones. We go for x-rays tomorrow so there will be more to post then.

Rally continues to grow around the middle. She is now 23 inches around. The really cool thing is that we can feel the pups moving around. They seem to be most active from 7-9am and then again from 5-7pm. At least that is when we feel the most movement. She lays mostly in the "beached whale" position now. She is also more restless in the evenings, trying to get comfortable. She is still perfectly capable of getting into as much trouble as she likes and doesn't let her big belly stop her in her search for mischief.

Rally is definately getting rounder by the day. After reading about other people measuring their girls' pregnant bellies I decided to measure Rally's. We are at Week 7 and she is 22.5 inches around. She is getting more protective of her treats. Poor Nicky doesn't understand why she is so moody and won't play with him. He is beginning to mope.
