Well puppies are now 1 week old and the smallest are nearly a pound, still obviously smaller, but holding their own. Genko is bored and feeling like her old self again, bringing me toys to play with her and wanting to spend time with her Shiba boyfriends.
The puppy room heating pad and heat lamp are off most of the time as it’s been warm out, and they twitch their little ears now so I think they are hearing for the first time. I have been playing my “Puppy Sounds” CD and they have the Classical Radio Station on the rest of the time.
They are handled multiple times during the day, and held and their feet touched…everything I would do for a Shiba litter. Once their eyes open, then the real fun begins!
