Nova's puppies are 4 days old today!
They've grown a fair bit in those 4 days, but are still very tiny of course~
We dug out the good camera, and took a few more pictures today. The puppies have nail polish on their ears so we can tell them apart, which is important beause we keep track of their weight the whole time we have them. That way we can prevent any little ones from falling too far behind, and find out early if they should happen to get sick.
So once their nail polish was dry, we took a few more pictures:
2 baby girls
5 baby boys
When we had them out for pictures, weighing, and dewclaw removal, Momma Nova was very concerned! Luckily the dewclaw procedure is quite quick and much more painless than you'd think. They were back in the nest box after only a few seconds, and enjoying cuddles and milk just like before.
We've also added a link to our sidebar about BarkBox. Many of our puppies' new parents have told us they love BarkBox, and their babies love to get new treats an toys every month. As Rampage is so energetic and playful, he goes through a lot of toys! So we've decided to start a BarkBox subscription for him. If you would like to get a Barkbox subscription of your own, you can visit our referral link. When you get a 6 month subscription, you get your first box free, and BarkBox will send a free box for Nova and Rampage! How cool is that?
We're also beginning to pick out the names we'll use for them while they're with us. We've narrowed our choices down to names themed on kinds of rocks (Granite, Mica, Marble) or original Pokemon (Ditto, Pidgey, Eevee). If you have a preference for one or the other, let us know in the comments! We'll make our decision and assign a name to each puppy once their eyes are open and they become big enough to wear a collar. That should be sometime next week or the week after, so we'll decide then!
Until then, thanks for reading, and if you're interested or have any questions, don't hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
