The Newfoundland puppies are doing great and are almost 3 weeks old. They are really getting around great and all of them opened up their eyes this week. The last part of this week we introduced the puppies to milk and how to lap it up. We will continue with this in the coming week and slowly introduce some soft food into it as well. We still have 3 wonderful little girls searching for a forever home. Female 2, 4, and 6 are still available and to see more pictures click on Litter 3 Photos or to make a deposit click on Available Newfies and select the one your interested in.
The Pyrenees are 5 weeks old now and are really coming along wonderfully. This week we transitioned them from milk and mush to solid puppy food and water. They are always full and have started to give Lady a break from all the nursing. We opened up there nursery and now they have the ability to go outside with Lady and learn to go potty outside as well as learn to be exposed to the different elements.
The Newfoundland puppies are 2 weeks old tomorrow and are doing great. Hershey has done amazing as a first time momma keeping them all clean and fed.

Its hard to believe that the Great Pyrenees pups are already 4 weeks old. They are doing so well.

The pups are now 3 weeks old and have come so far this week. They don't even look like babies anymore as all of them have their eyes open and they all are walking around. We opened up their nursery to allow them more area to roam around and place newspaper down to start potty training them. Later this evening we will introduce them to milk replacer in a bowl and get them to work at lapping up milk. After they have a good understanding of how to lap up milk we will slowly work crushed up puppy food into the milk adding some substance to it.
If you havent been following Hershey went into labor at 12:00am on Monday and didnt finish until Tuesday at 6:00pm. This however wasnt the end of it, after taking her to the vet to get an X-ray to verify she was done they found one more puppy inside her and it was so big that they had to assist in delivering it yesterday at 2:00pm.
