I cant believe we are at 7 weeks already!! I will be putting together the whelping box at the weekend and sterilising all the equipment ready for the big day.

We can now see the puppies wiggling around. It is lovely for us, as we can feel the puppies moving about really easily now. I have also heard a heartbeat with the stethoscope – a puppies heartrate is very fast and it sounds a bit like thundering hoofs (but obviously very scaled down!).
Now the unborn puppies have reached 7 weeks, the hair on the puppies will have started to develop and the colour of the coat will be showing! The puppies are now roughly 10cm long.
For comparison of Mollys developing tummy here are two photos …..
