Wow, hard to believe this time last week we were in the midst of welcoming our litter into the world. The week has whizzed by. Our number one concern for the past week is to ensure the health of our mother and litter. Maggie is once again proving to be a super mom. We occassionally have to tell her it is okay to leave her pups to eat or go outside. She is always ready to go for "walks" although tires easily and gets anxious quickly.
So I have been keeping track of each pup by painting a pup and weighing them daily. Then I have been putting the littlest ones on Maggie first for feeding, at least once a day. This is so by the time the litter is ready to go home, they are all about the same size. However, I think that orange boy (Harley comes to mind) is going to be the big one no matter what we do. And it looks like Mauve girl might just stay little. But with our girls it is hard to say as we usually have one or two bigger ones and one or two littler ones (when we have over one female pup). While the little ones eat, the other pups stay comfy and warm in the ready box (ready to go if we need to travel quickly).
