Mona and her puppies continue to do very well. The pups are in the neo-natal period of their development. They are extremely vulnerable in these early days since they cannot regulate their own body temperature and they need help eliminating. The puppies spend an enormous amount of time sleeping and nursing. They are getting better and better at moving around the whelping box but are not yet up on all fours. Their eyes and ears are still closed. The little noises that they make are ever so endearing and Mona is very attentive to their needs.
Early Neurological Stimulation & Early Scent Stimulation
Of course in addition to these exercises the puppies are weighed daily, receive regular nail trims and lots of gentle handling. They are terrible time wasters and I find myself crawling right into the whelping box along side Mona and her pups for lots of snuggles and loving.
