April 7, 2021 – Hazel and Barkley’s puppies arrived on March 31 and we have eleven (wow) healthy, thriving pups! They are one week old today. It’s actually been a quiet, uneventful week here as we watch Hazel take such good care of her babies. We are rotating the pups regularly to make sure all are getting their fair share of food (this is a must when a big litter like this arrives). We weigh the pups three times a day and they are all are gaining weight nicely. We started the pups on the bio-sensor steps a couple of days ago to begin the first phase of conditioning them neurologically and physically. It’s amazing the difference these steps make! We are also massaging them daily as mama is finally comfortable with us handling them more. Touch is our only way to connect with them at this young age and early human touch is very important. Here are some pictures we took of the pups this week. Watch for updates on this blog spot weekly to see them grow!
