Day 1
Day 2
Remi is an amazing mother.
She has kept all 10 puppies
well fed and warm. She even
allows all nine of the other
dogs in the house to visit
her puppies!
Day 5
The pups have all gained another 6 to 8 ounces! Weighing in at a
pound and a half or more at 5 days old....
I can't say enough about how great Remi is as mother.

Day 13
The puppies are now starting to open
their eyes. The ears have fallen to the
sides. The pups are mobile and
crawling over mom and each other.
DAY 16
MOTHER AND PUPS ARE DOING WONDERFUL.
THE PUPPIES ALL HAVE THEIR EYES OPEN.
THEY ARE STARTING TO LICK AND INTERACT
WITH EACH OTHER. TONIGHT WE CLIPPED
THEIR NAILS FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE WILL
CLIP THEIR NAILS
WEEKLY FROM NOW
ON. THE PUPS ARE
HANDLED DAILY.
WE TOUCH FROM
THEIR LITTLE NOSE
ALL THE WAY TO
THEIR TOES. WE
SNUGGLE WITH THEM WHILE WE ARE RELAXING. THEY
HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED TO ALL 9 OF THE OTHER DOGS
IN THE HOUSE. THE 2 CATS VISIT THEM EVERY ONCE IN A
WHILE ALSO. THEY ARE ALSO VERY WELL HANDLED BY
LITTLE HANDS. MY GRANDDAUGHTER GABRIELLA IS
ALWAYS LOVING AND HOLDING THE PUPPIES.
DAY 29
THE PUPPIES ARE NOW EATING SOLID FOODS WITH THE NEW PUPPY TEETH. THEY ARE PLAYING
AND ESTABLISHING PACK ORDER. THEY ARE LEARNING TO SIT FOR A TREAT. THEY HAVE HAD
NAILS TRIMMED SEVERAL TIMES. THEY COME TO US WHEN WE CALL PUPPY! PUPPY!
THEY LOVE  TO SNUGGLE. THEY HAVE HAD SEVERAL VISITS WITH CHILDREN AND ADULTS. THEY
PLAY ON THE FLOOR WITH THE MOM AND THE OTHER DOGS.
THEY HAVE STARTED TUGGING AND PLAYING WITH TOYS.
THE PUPS ARE DOING AND GROWING.
THEY ALL WEIGH BETWEEN 4.5 TO 5 POUNDS!
