All three of our boys now have terrific homes!
March 1, 2006  Five weeks old already!  The Boys are all doing terrific.  They are eating solid food on a regular basis.  They still try to sneak a snack from mom  (Jenny) every chance they get... but she isn't thrilled about any of it because puppy teeth are very sharp! 
 Romping, barking and chewing are their favorite activities. 
 February 3,2006 - All three boys are doing well.  They have more than doubled  their birth weight... tipping the scales at a healthly +2 1/2 pounds each !  Personalities are beginning to show and they each have "tickle spots" when you scratch the tummies! 
It's hard to believe, but by this time next week, their eyes should be opening!
On Monday, Jan. 23, 2006  at 4 p.m. we noticed that Jenny was trembling and appeared nervous.  She ate a good dinner and we settled in for a night of possible puppies. 
 During the night, Jenny was clingy and uncomfortable and you could see her having occasional contractions. 
 The next morning (Tuesday) Jenny did not eat any breakfast on her own.... she would occasionally nibble on kibble from my hand.   For some reason, by 10 a.m. she was acting normal. Was this a false alarm? No.
By 2 p.m. Jenny did not want to lay down.  All she wanted was to sit in my lap!  I fed her some vanilla ice cream... her favorite!  The sugar helps to give her the energy needed for labor and the calcium helps the contractions.
2:21 p.m. the first boy was whelped.. breech but okay.
He weighed 1lb. 2 oz.
Another boy, weighing 1 lb. 1 oz was next. He was also breech.
The last boy entered the world at 1 lb. 4 oz !
