We knew that she was expecting, but not before all of our vacation plans had already been paid for. So we had to leave her with family, which I was so worried about because we did not know her due date, but Cinny did so well under the circumstances. Thankfully this was not her first litter, so she knew what to do. Her first litter was about this time last year. I enjoyed watching the puppies be born. I had read up on how to help her during the delivery. I was felt a little sad that I could not be there with her to help her with this litter, but she handled it like a pro, I'm so proud of her.
They are currently 10 days old today, they have been able to move around by crawling since the day they were born. They cannot see or hear yet, both their eyes and ears are sealed closed. They should begin to start seeing any time now, that typically starts to happen about 10 days in, through I think it took a full 2 weeks our last litter. Their eyes begin to open a little at a time and they do look a little blue when you first see them. Their hearing will soon follow after they are able to see. Right now they make all kids of cute little squeaks and yips.
I would love to get some feedback from our readers on possible name choices. If I get enough names maybe I'll do a poll and put it to a vote. I intend to post more photos of them as they grow.
Thank you for stopping by to read our blogs and as always we love to get comments and feedback from our readers.
