6 days old

The puppies are doing so well, they are ahead of their first target! So I am really happy with their progress.

It is expected that puppies should double their birthweight in the space of a week. 4 out of the 6 puppies have surpassed doubling their birthweight with the remaining two not far behind. They will probably meet this target of doubling their weight by this evening.

I am going to have clip their claws in the next day or so otherwise they could end up scratching their mum when they are feeding. This is something I usually do when they are asleep, as it requires a steady hand and patience!
