Meet Lula's Puppies! Born Sept 10. Going Home Nov 5th.
Stop by weekly to watch us grow!
Week 1 Lula delivered 4 stunning mini/medium Australian Labradoodle puppies on the evening of Sept 10th. She had 2 girls and 2 boys, all scrumptious shades of chocolate. It was a quick and easy delivery - great job mama Lula!
Birth weights ranged from 9.5 - 10.5 oz. At one week of age, the puppies weigh 15.5 oz to 1 lb 1/2 oz. They have almost doubled their birth weight in the first 7 days! Lula is an excellent mom, and her puppies are off to a wonderful start!
I hope you enjoy this week's slideshow. I also shot lots of videos this week. I will share some of them on our Leapfrog Labradoodles Facebook page. Please stop by to say hello and see more of these adorable puppies :)
Week 2 - Welcome Back! The puppies spent this week nursing, sleeping, growing, building strength, and improving their coordination in preparation for the amazing changes ahead! The puppies have now reached 2.5 time their birth weight (1 lb 9 oz - 1 lb 11.5 oz). I waited until day 16 to take photos because their eyes weren't quite open by day 14. It's amazing to witness the transformation that occurs between 1 and 2 weeks of age. I hope I managed to convey this in the photos.
Week 3 - Family Visit Via Zoom in Lieu of Photos! Soon after their eyes begin to open, the puppies being to hear. At that point, they become social little beings. The puppies begin to interact with each other and with their dam in more purposeful ways. So much is happening as we head into Week 3 and beyond!
