    They are adorable. I am delighted to know that there isn't one white one in the bunch. Otherwise, I would have had to march over to your house and demand that puppy. LOL

    You are taking good care of things, it sounds like to me! Thankgoodness we have Lisa, David and the other baby-experts to help you!

    Your babies are beautiful!

    Sorry, I know nothing about Mom's not wanting to eat but I would be concerned with that and the elevated temp. I'd check with your vet.

    Hello,
    Congrats on the new litter. Keeping track of the weight is very important. From your post it seems to indicate the puppies were newborns?
    But the color of the poo seems wrong for newborns?

    The first several days are usually a black thick gel. Sorry for the gross descriptions

    Good that you are tracking the weight. Just to make sure you know, the puppies WILL loose weight for up to 3-4 days and then start to gain back the weight. Each of our past liters have lost weight and then back to birth weight by day 4-5. The fist few days of milk is the colostrum and takes a day or so for the milk to really start getting flowing. Also newborn puppies are very weak and lazy and take a few days to get going. We leave the puppies on as long as they want. At first it takes up to 45 minutes per nursing. As they get bigger the time will get shorter and down to 15-20 minutes. We keep tracking the weight until they max out our 2 lb scale.

    As for the poo, yes orange is the next normal color. Up until week 4 the poo will be very soft almost thin ribbons. Once other sources of nutrients are added such as formula supplement, the color and texture wont change. By week 4.5 - 5 the stool becomes a bit more firm.

    Good Day~

    Hello,

    The normal temp is 101 so any elevated temp is reason for concern as well as not eating. Check with VET !

    Completely agree! Check her incision fir her csection, also check her breasts. If any of them seem hard or swollen get her to the vet asap!! If you have to bottle feed due to a sick mom use goat milk (it's expensive but worth it). The powders cause nasty diarrhea.

    Update,

    All is going well. Puppies are eating (drinking, lol) like champs. And mom is doing great. I took her temp just moments ago and she was at a 101.3. Mom is eating better as well. Puppies as of last feeding, which was at.1:45 am, are now as follows: Mo born at 14.0oz and today 18.4oz, Spot born 13.7oz and today 18.0oz, Smokey Eye born 12.3oz and today 16.0oz, Eye Patch born 12.2oz and today 13.8oz, and last but definitely not least is Mini, born at 9.2oz and today 13.0oz.
