The puppies are now all very different and their personalities are coming out much more. There’s a big difference between Eliza who is very dainty and Rocky who is definitely the biggest.
This week the puppies turned 4 weeks and we started them on puppy food, mixed with puppy milk. All very messy, but they all did great.
They’re getting bigger every day. The difference between the biggest (Rocky) and the daintiest (Eliza) is getting more pronounced.
The puppies opened their eyes this week and they all met their new owners.
We’ve kept in touch with lots of the puppies’ new owners and received pictures of them as they grow up.
Here’s a picture of all the puppies just before they left for their new homes.
This week they all had their third course of worming. One more to go, and next week they’ll all have their first round of vaccinations ready to go to their new homes.
They’re growing very quickly now. Getting them to sit still and weigh them is very difficult!
Bolt – 41cm long
Venus – 42cm long
Tiger – 40cm long
Harry – 42cm long
Florence – 35cm long
McKayla – 45cm long
Billie – 37cm long
Hamilton – 43cm long
The puppies are all on solid food (mixed with puppy milk while their teeth still develop), and feeding times are the highlight of the day!
The puppies have all opened their eyes and are starting to walk around now. They can’t walk very far and their legs still collapse under their weight occasionally but they’re getting visibly stronger and bigger every day. They don’t leave Rapunzel’s side and she spends most of her time laid down feeding them and sleeping.
Their colours are becoming much more distinct – McKayla and Florence are very pale yellow, Billie and Harry are the two darkest.
Next week they turn 4 weeks old and start on puppy food.
