Three Days Old

The little squeaky Amberettes are doing very well. I can't believe they are already three days old. The days sure went by fast. Unfortunately, we had to move the puppies back to the bathroom because Amber has been refusing to stay in the Crib & nurse them. At first, I was pretty upset because I thought Amber was not accepting her puppies & the whole night till morning, she just stayed up, paced around & whined. But the moment all the puppies were put back in the bathroom, my gosh... What a WONDERFUL mother she is!

She stays with them almost the whole day, coming out just once in a whil
e. And the moment any of the puppies start calling, she runs back to them frantically. She has even sacrificed a lot for her puppies. The bathroom is stuffy & hot & recently I mentioned that she hates sleeping on anything besides the cold tiled floor. The lamps are on all the time & it gives out some heat & we cannot put on the fan on high for Amber because we want the pups to stay warm. Amber pants a lot in the bathroom because it's hot but she knows this is what's good for her puppies. She's just a wonderful mother & I'm so proud of her.

I think the Crib didn't give much privacy plus it was in an area where the TV is always on, the main door was just beside it & Chloe could look over it so I guess she just felt uncomfortable with that place. Amber doesn't seem to mind Chloe coming close to the puppies but Faith is kinda freaked out about them. She stays at least 10 feat away from them. I guess in a way it's good at least for now but I hope she will get used to them some day. The puppies' remaining cords have finally dropped off & I weighed each of them last night. Most of them are at least around 500 grams but one of the girls is around 400 grams. I think she is puppy #4. The smallest in the group. They each have their own identification collars too. I've taken more pictures of them with Amber in the bathroom which I would like to share with you all...


Hope you enjoyed the pictures! There'll be more to come. We haven't named them yet but once they are 2 weeks older or more, we'll be able to see each of their personalities & then it'll be much easier for us to name them.


I would also like to thank you all for the nice comments you left in the previous post. Sure it was sad & such a waste to lose three beautiful puppies but life must go on. Yes you all are right. 7 is much more easier to take care than 10 but still... We all including Amber are still sad over the loss. But 7 is a very lucky number or so I heard. I don't know why but it is. Thanks for cheering us up. We feel a lot better today.

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Sorry for not commenting sooner, but we have actually been following the birth process on your blog..Mom was a bit busy with her work so she didn't help me leave a comment. =(

Congrats on the wonderful puppies! They are so adorable! So sorry to hear about the loss of 3 girls too. But like you said, life has to go on...we're looking forward to read about the progress of these pups! They're precious!

Scottie

zephyros said...

too many comments to go through but, privacy might not be the reason amber moved to the toilet. puppies need to be kept warm etc, so that could be a reason why she chose the warmer toilet than the cooler crb.

Rudy said...

Mom is just going crazy over those little things! Did I say she was a sucker for puppies? She wants to tell you those collars are darling!!! How did you get such tiny collars?
When our breeder has a litter of pups at her house they all stay upstairs in her bedroom in a doggie baby pool with rugs and things in it. That way they all stay warm and quiet while she's grooming dogs in the basement. Amber just wanted some peace and quiet I bet. Mom loves to come over and check out the puppies.

If my last 'hot date' has pups sometime mid-May (we're not sure she's pregnant yet) Mom will surely be over to visit a LOT....
Puppies grow up fast!! Enjoy them while you can.

Love,
Rudy

Hello Amber Mae and Amberettes,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving us a comment recently. Amber is such a pretty momma with a wonderfully cute group of puppers!
Our Ruger just wanted to say hubba hubba! Everytime we pull up Amber Mae's pics he starts staring at them and slobbering. He thinks she is absolutely beautiful even in a motherly way. Glad to hear she is taking such good care of those puppers! Smooches from Ruger and the boys!

Comet and BLU said...

Congratulations to Amber! What beautiful puppies she has and she is turning out to be such a good mother. We bet Auntie Faith and Chloe will enjoy the pups once they are little older.

We are very sorry to hear that 3 of the puppies didn't make it. We can only imagine how sad that is for you and Amber.

We can't wait to see more pics of the pups as they get bigger.

Amber is a great mom and I am sure she will do what's best for her babies.. Poor Auntie Faith, I bet she is trying to make head or tail out of those Amberettes! Don't fret, pretty soon when the babies are bigger, I am sure Auntie Faith will fall in love with them.
Cna't wait to see what those pups will be named!
