The Beau x Rizzo Puppies: 2 Weeks Old

The puppies are two weeks old now and have entered the Transitional Period of development.  They are beginning to get their legs up under them now and although wobbly, they are definitely more mobile.  Their eyes have all opened and they have limited, blurry vision which will improve as the days and weeks unfold.  

Soft toys, pillows and different footing are rotated in their whelping box as we feel that this offers an enriched environment for the puppies, albeit on a small scale.

When the pups need to pee they are now beginning to move away from where they were sleeping. I've now added pee pads as a defined potty area which is a small, first step towards potty training.

This litter is such a joy and we are all benefiting from being able to sit in the whelping box and experience lots of "puppy therapy" by way of cuddles and gentle handling.  Rizzo is an excellent mother to her puppies.  Keeping her little ones very well fed and clean.

I hope that following the development of this litter will bring you all much happiness. I invite you to like our Northrock Barbets Facebook Page where photos and videos will be posted on a regular basis for you to enJOY.
