Puppies are all growing very fast. Phoebe is getting a homemade mix of ground chicken, brown rice and sweet potatoes. I’m supplementing that with adult dog kibble–Wellness brand–and cottage cheese. She is eating about five times a day–over double what she normally eats! Puppies noses are beginning to color in and their toe nails are hardening. Some are black and some are white–very cute!
At this point their eyes are still closed and they sleep on the heating pad about 90% of the time. When they are awake all they do is seek out Mom and eat. Phoebe is comfortable sleeping outside the litter box but won’t leave the room except to go outdoors. We might take a short walk today. I’m told it stimulates milk production.
Here are some photos to start your morning!
