||14 oz. - Eyes opened Thursday evening. So far, he's the quietest of the boys.||18 oz.|
||17 oz. - Eyes began opening Wed. He and white collar are the ones most likely to be found "wandering around" the box, away from the others, though he is more likely to squeal when he discovers he is away from them. He is changing from deep mahogany to a lighter golden brown shade though his black mask is still very evident.||22 oz.|
||13 oz. - Eyes began opening on Thursday. So far very quiet and content puppy so long as she is snuggled with the group. However, cries and fusses when she gets separated from the others. She is also getting quite a bit lighter - in fact, she is a bit lighter than her brother.||18 oz.|
||14 oz. - Eyes started opening Thursday evening. Very similar to the other black - just a little more active.||20 oz.|
||18 oz. - Eyes started to crack open on Tuesday evening. Most active of the bunch. Very independent and often off by himself. On Sunday he began to be aware of the world around him - he scratched his ear and yipped!||22 oz.|
black boy with the white collar began to open his eyes on Tuesday and
others followed the next day. By the end of the week, all eyes
fully open and they were beginning to take tentative steps around the
box. They can walk a few steady steps so long as they have solid
footing to grip underneath - when put on the floor (vinyl) so I can
out the box, their feet slide like little ice skaters if they get off
foam backed plush carpeting. By the weekend, their ears had grown
enough to begin to fold over against the sides of their heads and the
are beginning to open. In another few days they should begin to
sounds and start responding to noises.
