Lizzy and Basil’s puppies are doing well

May 27, 2020

After nursing, they go right back to sleep. We love plump bellies.

Lizzy’s pups have opened their eyes! It won’t be long now before they will become more active and begin to explore.  You can see in the pictures that they are getting stronger, some are sitting up more, stretching their necks and getting enough strength that they will soon be walking around the pen.  Things are going to start changing fast starting next week. Then we can take some video of them to post on Instagram. Here they are; a little over two weeks old!

May 26, 2020 – Just a report that the pups have opened their eyes and we’ll post pictures tomorrow!

May 25, 2020 – Lizzy’s pups are doing very well.  Just a quick update to let you know all the pups are thriving! We are still waiting for their eyes to open and when that happens, we’ll post some new pictures so you can see. Mostly, they just eat and sleep.  But we know that will change soon!

May 20, 2020 – Lizzy’s puppies haven’t changed a lot in looks, but they continue to gain weight and are doing well. They still mostly just sleep, and they’ll do that for a while yet. They can’t see or hear yet, but they are stronger and crawling about the pen a little more. Touch is our only way to connect with them at this age so they are held and massaged daily, in addition to the bio-sensor steps. Here they are at a little over a week old!

May 16, 2020 – Lizzy’s pups continue to gain weight and are doing well. No change in appearance for a while, so no new pictures to post but wanted to let everyone know that the litter is doing very well. The pups are now started on their daily bio-sensor program to be stimulated neurologically.  A very important process they will go through for the next two weeks. Doing these steps with each puppy each day from day 4 to day 16 or 18 will help the puppies for the rest of their lives! It produces in a pup/dog a greater tolerance to stress, stronger hearts and better resistance to disease, just to name the main benefits.

 

May 13, 2020 – Mama Lizzy is doing great and all of the puppies have consistently been gaining weight. We are sad to announce that one puppy stopped eating today and despite all efforts to save him, he passed away. It was the last pup born and though he was doing well up until this morning, he must not have been good internally.  This rarely happens that a pup arrives and seems healthy and then passes a day or two later. It is fairly common, but thankfully, we’ve rarely experienced it. This is hard and the toughest thing about raising puppies. We do believe though that it is merciful if a puppy dies early on instead of suffering for weeks,or longer, if something is wrong internally.

Here is the detail on the litter.  Four cream-apricot girls, three chocolate girls, one black boy, two chocolate boys (one with white markings).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First day

May 11, 2020 –  Our first puppy arrived yesterday afternoon, and as of this morning, we have cream, black and chocolate puppies:  seven girls and three boys. They are eating well and mama is doing great. We’ll be updating this post with pictures and updates weekly, with individual pictures of the puppies starting at three, five and seven weeks old.  Once the pups become active, at around four weeks old, we’ll post some video of them on Instagram and Facebook to help you to be able to watch them grow.

Lizzy and her litter is with our close friends and our guardian family that has been helping us whelp and raise puppies for years. They’ll stay there, not too far from us, until puppies are three weeks old. This gives pups added socialization with their family before coming here for more training and socialization at our home.

This week, they’ll be kept very warm weighed regularly, and monitored closely. The Bio-sensor program will start in several days.
