Birth Announcement:
Darcey and Sheldon's litter was
born on August 12, 2020.  Darcey
delivered 4 boys and 2 girls in the
litter.  The first pup arrived at 7:18
pm. Mom and puppies are doing
well.



1 Week Update
At the age of 1 week, the pups are all doing
very well and gaining weight nicely.  The
puppies do not open their eyes until the age
of 2 weeks. Their ears do not open until
they are 3 weeks.  Their sense of smell is
how they explore their world in the
beginning.  I begin holding and massaging
the puppies from day 1 and allowing them
to smell my breath and be nestled against
my chest.  They are weighed daily to ensure
that everyone is progressing.


2 Weeks - Update

The puppies are eating well and
growing on schedule.  Most of the pups'
eyes were open on their 2 week
birthday.  Everyone is used to being
held now and snuggles contentedly
against me after their daily weight
check.  



3 Weeks - Update

The puppies continue to eat and grow
well.  They are a contented quiet group
at this age.  Mom and pups moved out
of the nursery and into a playpen crate
in the family room.  Their ears opened
and they are now able to hear and
respond to sounds.   I will begin saying
their names each time I hold them. I get
them used to loud noises by running
the shop vac, dropping metal objects,
etc.  


4 Weeks - Update

The puppies had their first bath and
blow-dry.  Their nails were clipped and
their faces and feet shaved.  They had
their microchips inserted.  They have
begun eating solid food.  I grind the
kibble up and add pumpkin & chicken
brother to make a soft food for them.  
Darcey has a lower tolerance for pain
than most of the girls and the pups'
sharp teeth are bothering her so she
has backed down to nursing just twice a
day.

5 Weeks - Update

The puppies had their second bath and
blow-dry. They had their 2nd face &
paw shave along with getting their nails
clipped. They are eating solid food 3
times each day .  Mom is is still feeding
once per day but will be completely
weaned by their 6 week birthday. They
are enjoying short play times in the
kitchen this week.





6 Weeks - Update


The puppies had their 2nd bath and
blow-dry.  They went to the vet for their
first vaccination.  They will start going
"outside potty" on a regular basis this
week.  Daytime naps will be taken in
individual crates rather than the
playpen crates.  Everyone is eating well
and are completely weaned from
Darcey.
