Cooper x Sibley Litter - Week 1

Meet Cooper and Sibley's puppies! They were whelped on the evening of January 31st. It was a quick and easy whelping and all puppies were strong and healthy at birth. What a thrill to have "one of each" in this litter!

Puppy Number Sex Markings Collar Colour Birth Weight (g)
1 - Black Female   Purple 327g
2 -Liver Female   Lime Green 388g
3 - Liver Male   Teal 324g
4 - Black Male   Orange 282g

Sibley has been a wonderful mother so far - diligently spending most of her time in the whelping box. The puppies gained weight quickly and doubled their birth weights by the end of the week.

Nail trimming begun on Day 3 and needs to be done every other day - it is always amazing how quickly puppy nails grow.

Early Neurological Stimulation and Early Scent Introduction began on Day 4.
