Born: March 2, 2021
Ursa gave birth to four pups. We
used the names of nuts for this litter's theme. Their temporary
names are Walnut (affectionately called Wally) - Purple collar, Pistacio - Green collar, both are boys, Almond - Yellow collar, and Hazelnut - Orange collar,
both are girls.
This is how small the litter was at three days of age. Pistacio
weighed just 150g at birth and after a couple of days started to
catch up to the others in weight.
This is how big Pistacio was the evening
of his birth.
We always try to stay on top of new
trends in the rearing of our pups. This year we attended a
webinar by Dr. Marty Greer who recommended all breeders utilize
this incubator to give their pups a good start. We and the pups
At one week of age the pups are pretty
similar in size. Ursa is doing a great job taking care of them
as we can tell by their growth and how much she cares for them.
This picture lets you see just how much
they have grown in a week. Compare their size in this picture to
how small their were in the picture above. A couple of the pups have doubled in size.
