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 while. 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.
