At 2 1/2 weeks the puppies have all doubled their weight (and then some) and have opened their eyes. They are now waddling around the whelping box and playing puppy king of the mountain. They have also discovered that they can bark and exercise this new skill with vigor! They descend upon Jill when she gets into the whelping box so she has taken to nursing them standing up.
Here is our Sweet Maggie meeting the new babies for the first time. Maggie just loves puppies. Maggie is 12 years old (quite elderly for a GSD) and suffering from severe spinal arthritis . This will be probably be the last litter she gets to see SIGH.... :-(
