Puppy Update – 2 weeks old!

on December 14, 2015

Well, the little munchkins turned two weeks old on Saturday. They are getting so big! Just look how far they’ve come in just fourteen days:

  • They’ve quadrupled their weights!
  • Once only able to suckle (a natural reflex in newborns), they can now lick, yawn, and are just starting to gnaw on each other.
  • At first, they’re only aware of their dams. Now they’re beginning to discover themselves (“oh.. I have a paw and I can gnaw at it”) and their littermates (“oh…he has a paw and I can chew on it”).
  • They’ve also begun to push themselves up onto four legs (quite wobbly, and not really standing yet, but up on all fours before toppling over).
  • They can move backward and forward (before they could only move in circles).
  • They can lift and move their heads left and right and up and downat will (before they could only “bob” their heads).
  • They’re consciously sniffing (putting their noses down to investigate).
  • They can just barely sit.  This usually occurs when the pups move backward.  They push themselves back with their front legs and end up on their bottoms.
  • Heehee… they can “bark”(though it isn’t a controlled vocalization yet — more a reflex).
  • They can find the puppy pile, and enjoy piling together (part of a growing awareness of littermates)
  • AND they’re eyes have unsealed (happened on Day 14, right on time!).

All of their eyes are blue (as they always are in newborns). They will turn brown/hazel later on as part of their normal development. They do not, however, have functional eyesight yet (that will come in time).

Here are a few photos taken today.

So, there they are!  A whopping two weeks old!
