Today they are 10 days old. They have begun to growl and bark in their dreams, their coats are getting fuzzier and yesterday they had their first nail trim!
Mama seems to have nice rich milk. The puppies are now between 2.4 – 2.7 pounds.
Hard to believe that it has been one week since our sweet Golden puppies arrived! They have changed a lot in a week. They have gained between 8 -11 ounces, their paws and noses have turned black, their coats have gotten fluffier, and their whiskers are growing!
Last night Sophie delivered her first litter of Golden puppies!
We have 5 girls and 1 boy. They were all born very healthy, great nursing reflex and of course adorable! We are very thankful for our great Veterinary team who helped us through the difficult times and that all of our puppy arrived safely.
The puppies weights varied between the largest female at 17 ounces and the smallest female at 14 ounces. The rest were all 15 and 16 ounces. They are all going to bedark red and already showing different puppy personalities!
Sophie is an amazing Mama dog. It has been important to her to have her human family close by her side through the delivery and she seems to enjoy having us sitting by admiring her babies.
This past week we had Sophie’s Pre-delivery x-ray.
We are counting down the days until our puppies arrive! Only about 3 more days until her due date on November 5th.
This week Sophie activity level has slowed down. We have all enjoyed watching Sophie’s tummy get rounder and feeling her puppies kick.
Keep checking back for more puppy updates!
