Chalmoor I'm Smartie with Tachnamadra x Chalmoor Look At Me

1 week old

The puppies are now one week old and have more or less doubled their birth weight.  The tricolour girl and two of the blue merle dogs weigh 12 oz, whereas the more heavily marked blue merle dog weighs 15 oz.   The pigmentation on their noses is gradually changing from pink to black and other than when they are feeding, they spend their time sleeping, conserving their energy for growth and development.  Smartie is proving to be an excellent mum and apart from spending short periods of time downstairs with us, most of her day is spent caring for her babies.
