Well the pups' first week is in the books. Everyone has gained and Gracie has settled into to the routine of feeding, cleaning and caring for her little ones. She's being a very good mother and I'm so pleased.
We have started Early Neurological Stimulation exercises with the puppies as well as Early Scent Introduction which is always fun to do. Things are kept quiet in the whelping room during the first week. The other dogs in the household remain downstairs and I focus on giving care to Gracie and supporting her in her new role. In the first few days she was very reluctant to leave her babies so I would feed all her meals to her in the whelping box. She is a sweet and caring mother and I look forward to watching her relationship with her puppies develop as the weeks unfold.
The theme for this litter is "WINTER" and these will be the names of the puppies while they are with us before they leave for their new homes.
There are six male puppies and three females.
Dark Blue Collar - Winter Pink Collar - Cocoa
Black Collar - Blizzard Red Collar - Mittens
Purple Collar - Chilly Yellow Collar - Crystal
Green Collar - Aspen
Orange Collar - Cider
Light Blue Collar - Frosty
