The puppies are all over 2.5 lbs now and they are starting to do the little puppy crawl around the pool. Their eyes have started to open! It's so great just sitting and watching them, I could really do it all day.

New collars

The puppies have their collars on now. It's much easier to tell them apart now instead of having to check for their paint color. Each puppy is given a color for their birth order, it goes: red, blue, purple, neon pink, brown, light pink, etc.

The puppies are 10 days old and their eyes should start opening tomorrow!

Video update

I love taking pictures and videos of the puppies, so there will be a lot more updates :) I just weighed all the puppies and they are all gaining weight, most are over 2 lbs now. There eyes could start to open tomorrow, I will check in the morning. There ears start to open around 21 days old. Right now they can't see or hear, but it's amazing how they can find each other and their mom. This is a very nice litter :)

X-Ray results

Yesterday Chandra had her x-ray to determine how many puppies we should be expecting, and the number is 7! That's a nice sized litter, can't wait to see how many of the puppies will be black or yellow. 3 more days until her due date!

Getting the puppy room ready

I just got home from Grand Cayman and it's a little shocking in this cold weather! Chandra has been with Peggy for a week and she'll stay with her when she whelps her puppies and for the first week since I'll be in Orlando. I should be in Sacramento for her whelp, so that will be exciting! She's due on the 18th and she's always been on time. Today I'm getting the puppy room ready, it's actually going to be in my room this time since we added marble floors to my room it makes it easier with the puppies. Today I'm cleaning it all, which was needed ;) Then I'm going to get some scrap linoleum to protect the floor. We'll be moving in Chandra's box, even though she's not having her puppies here, it's a nice sized box and the puppies can stay in it until they are a little over 3 weeks old. Chandra's x-ray is on the 14th and we'll be able to see how many puppies she is having then. Yay for puppies!!

Amya and the Rose Parade!

We are very proud of Amya!

Here's a note from her puppy raiser, "Amya will be with the Lion’s Club Float walking next to it. The theme is Miracle in the Making – the Lion’s support CCI & other Assistance Dog organizations"

Amya walked next to the float and in front of the USC band!

Nice job USC & Pac-10!!
