Five weeks and exploring the new digs

Five week stats

Pup-one - red boy RB - 3 lb 1 oz
Pup-two - blue boy BB - 2 lb 9 oz

While they still have the puppy room for night time complete with open crates which they are happy to use, they now spend their days in the adventure pen in the living roo. Interacting with different sights, sounds and surfaces.

Nothing cuter than sleeping puppies


Four weeks and time to start on some solid food

Four week stats

Pup-one - red boy RB - 2 lb 4 oz
Pup-two - blue boy BB - 1 lb 15 oz

Their first taste of solid food went down very well. With Lola still very stingy with the milk, weaning cannot happen soon enough but must still be done carefully.

They are loving having Anne visit

Three weeks and finally some consistent progress with fewer hiccups

Three week stats

Pup-one - red boy RB - 1 lb 10 oz
Pup-two - blue boy BB - 1 lb 6 oz

They are starting to interact with their surroundings and RB likes chewing on fingers.
BB is likely to beat chunky RB when it comes to walking.
RB can still rule the milk bar if not watched but BB is holding his own with a little policing by Anna


Milk coma BB style and RB style


Post first nail trim comfort suckle


BB, RB, Quick!! The milk bar is open, albeit briefly


Side by side comparison, despite the weight difference they are similar in length


BB working hard to get the milk down while RB just bides his time


Two weeks and a new learning curve as we deal with supply and demand issues. A balancing act indeed

Two week stats

Pup-one - red boy RB - 15.3 oz
Pup-two - blue boy BB - 11.7 oz


Chow time, having a good feed


Milk coma, RB being a typical boy


Optical illusion, RB is actually substantially bigger and chunkier than BB!!


Although RB's eyes actually started opening first (at 13 days) he is apparently camera shy!!!


BB showing off his little peepers and round little tummy


One week old and things are improving

7 day Stats

Pup-one - red boy - 7.7 oz
Pup-two - blue boy - 5.7 oz


Lola is a good mom despite a delayed milk supply. Thankfully, Fenugreek and "Mother's pudding" is working


The difference in size between BB (blue boy) and RB (red boy) is quite apparent already


Welcome to the world little ones

Birth Stats

Pup-one - red boy - 4.4 oz
Pup-two - blue boy - 4.1 oz


Born by elective C-section, the little Blue boy took a while to get going but not so much the red boy.


Despite the topnotch progesterone and LH surge timing, it appears they were likely at least 48 hours premature.
