Annie x Vikingur Litter, August 2015
Day 21: In the last day
or so, the puppies are starting to play with each
other. I added something new in the pen, a little dog
The puppies in their new arrangement. I took the
whelping box down and packed it away, and substituted a
litter pan with pine pellet horse bedding in its
place. Now I start the effort to get them in there as
often as possible and hopefully by 6 weeks or so, they will
consciously go there to use it. We shall see :-)
This arrangement will last about 10 days, and then they will
be moved to a pen in the living room where they will live
(in addition to a pen outside in nice weather) until they go
to their new homes.
Last evening in the whelping box.
Settling down after nursing. For some reason, Jane
was fussing a lot. Soon they will be eating, and when
they are ready to eat they fuss, and she is the biggest, so
maybe that was it, or a little tummyache. Anyway, they
all snoozed off shortly after this.
16 days old, a
few minutes of life in the whelping box.
