I whelped this litter in a Large Dog Crate (lid removed) and the crate has worked well up to now. But the puppies are getting more strength in their legs and are now able to crawl over the two inch lip at the entrance. So I am just now moving them to the Baby Pool that I usually use for newborns. That should work out well for another week or so....When the puppies are strong enough to walk onto the Ugodog Litter Tray I will move them to the regular pen.
Although the Toy Schnoodles are reaching the developmental milestones right on cue with my other litters, it is amazing to me to see just how tiny they still are. At two weeks old the miniature Schnoodle is weighing about 1.5 lbs. But these Tiny Toy Schnoodles are still well under a pound. Below are the puppies photos taken on Saturday when they turned 2 weeks old.
Red Toy Schnoodle (darker shade) - Chili
|Chili is 12.5 ounces today.|
|Chils eyes are almost completely open|
Red Toy Schnoodle (lighter shade) - Pepper
|Pepper is the smallest in the litter weighing 11.3 ounces|
|Pepper looks nice and round in this picture, but he is still the tiniest of the puppies|
White Toy Schnoodle - Frosty
|Frosty is the largest of the litter weighing 13.9 ounces|
|We are still waiting for Frosty's eyes to open.|
Cream Toy Schnoodle - Cheerio
|Cheerio is 12.9 ounces this today.|
|Like Frosty, Cheerios eyes are just barely starting to open.|
