The Winston x Sophie Puppies Are 2 Weeks Old
It's been a great week here at Northrock for momma Sophie and her pups. Everyone continues to do well. Today wraps up the end of the Neo-Natal Period which lasts from one to fourteen days. We continue with the Bio-Sensor and Early Scent Stimulation programs and will continue with these exercises through day 16 of the puppies lives.
The pups have all gained very nicely. As of today's weigh-in they range from 2.2 3/4 lbs to 2.7 1/8 lbs. Duchess and Duke were the first to open their eyes followed closely by Minx. We are still waiting on Lady and Rogue.
The puppies have been spending most of their time sleeping and eating. They are a quiet bunch as Sophie is a very attentive dam and keeps them well fed and comfortable. Her whelping box is always clean and you can tell she is very pleased with her little family. We look forward to watching the pups continue to grow as they move into the Transitional Period (14 - 21 days).
