Pearl and Noble had their little ‘pearls’ on May 19th, 2024.

 

Pearl is absolutely wonderful with the puppies.  She is calm and relaxed with them.  She understands that she has to stay with the puppies and care for them constantly instead of being with the family in the main areas of the house.  We spend a lot of time with her in the whelping room to keep her company during this time when the puppies have to remain in the heated whelping room.  Pearl is sharing a whelping room with Joy and enjoys having her company. Although they have separate spaces in the whelping room, they are able to see each other in the shared space.

 

Pearl & Noble’s puppies are one week old.  She watches over the puppies and observes us as we handle them, but is completely trusting of us as we assist with the care of the puppies.  She is very confident and relaxed while we handle the puppies.  She enjoys watching them when we handle them.  She trusts us completely but tends to observe during the weighing process when we weigh each puppy daily and remove them from the whelping box for a few seconds.  She sleeps with them, nestles them, and cleans them with much devotion.  She seems to enjoy it when we help clean the puppies and arrange them to nurse.

 

We chose a ‘May’ theme for the puppies.

The puppies began the early neurological stimulation “Super Dog” program developed by Dr. Carmen Battaglia.

The puppies are two weeks old.  They primarily sleep, eat, and make soft sounds when they are trying to find Pearl or their sibling to snuggle. The puppies often sleep in a little mound together or near a heated puppy warming disk. 

 

Pearl is absolutely wonderful with the puppies.  She watches over them, sleeps with them, and cleans them with much devotion.  She is a very relaxed mom that enjoys having us sit with her in the whelping box and seems to enjoy watching us as we handle the puppies. Pearl enjoys having us spend time with her in the nursery.  She enjoys having us brush her while sitting in the whelping box with the puppies.

  

The puppies are just beginning to open their eyes and attempt to walk. They continue to participate in the “Super Dog” program, the early neurological stimulation for newborn puppies developed by Dr. Carmen Battaglia.  They are exposed to a variety of music and sounds throughout the day.

The puppies are three weeks old.   

 

The puppies have opened their eyes and getting more secure on their feet as they attempt to walk. Their ‘toddling’ is entertaining to watch as they work on learning to balance on all four legs. They are beginning to play with small toys, and also beginning to tug and nibble each others tail and feet, although the duration is very brief.  They enjoy being ‘belly up’ while getting belly rubs and are learning to give puppy kisses.   They are exposed to a variety of music and shows to provide a variety of sounds throughout the day.

 

The puppies have all completed the “Super Dog” program, the early neurological stimulation for newborn puppies developed by Dr. Carmen Battaglia.  We also implement activities from ‘Puppy Culture’ and a ‘Puppy Preschool’ program developed by a local dog trainer.   

 

The puppies will join us in the family room next week.
