Dora’s Diary – Day 16

Dora and her puppies

Scroll down for the latest video!

So the puppies are 16 days’ old now, their eyes are open and they are certainly getting more mobile though there is a lot of rolling over rather than walking!   The puppies have all tripled their birth weight and eyes opened around day 12.  They are kept in our study in the quiet until they are more mobile when they will be brought out into the sitting room and the fun begins!

They are starting to become more noisy and we’ve even heard a little bark.  It is quite natural for the puppies to twitch whilst sleeping and shows normal development.  Their little claws grow quite quickly and they have had a manicure twice now to keep the sharp claws from digging into Mum as they paddle when feeding!
