The pups are developing great. They all have their own personality and love to play. This will be the last full week with Momma (Sadie) with them all day. Starting next week we will start weaning the puppies from Mom during the day and let them have her at night for comfort.
This week the puppies continued to eat the mush as well as started to eat whole puppy food. As they are starting to get older they are really playing a lot more and its such a joy to watch them growl and bark at each other when they play. They all have such great personalities.
The puppies are now 3 weeks old and have really advanced this week. They all had their eyes open up, they started to walk around instead of scooting around and they learned how to lap up goats milk. Tonight we will introduce ground up puppy food into their goats milk to add some substance to the milk and really help them put on weight and growth.
The puppies are now 16 days old and all of the puppies now have their eyes open. They are really growing and advancing well. Today we brought them outside for there first big adventure and absolutely had a blast. Not only are their eyes opened but they also had their first taste of goats milk. We will continue to give them milk for the next couple of days to help take some strain off of momma and then starting this weekend when they are 3 weeks old we will introduce "Mush" (ground up puppy food and goat milk) to them and continue feeding them that Mush twice a day.
The puppies are now 2 weeks old and are really growing. They are days away from starting to open there eyes and we cant wait to see them. For more information about this litter click: "Available Puppies" and also visit our FaceBook site at https://www.facebook.com/HergertFamilyFarm/
