Today was toe nail trimming day. Their sharp little nails were starting to make Duchess growl while they fed. At two weeks old, they eat in shifts. A maximum of eight puppies feed at one time. Lined up side by side they need to stretch their bodies out in order to fit.
They love to hog-pile and sleep on top of each other. They used to eat about every hour and sleep inbetween. Now they are eating half as often (eating more) and sometimes they stand up and play a bit. Their "standing" is a clutsy and wobbly, very unstable posture. They are so fun and cute to watch at this stage.
Their eyes have been open for several days. Which means those wobbly cute critters can see each other and bravely are starting to move from point A to point B. This is the time to enjoy them.
In the next, few weeks the work load on us will increase as we will need to start putting paper down and changing it several times a day. The litter was a month earlier than before so it won't be as nice as last year when the pups got to run out in the yard the last two weeks before they left.
