4 weeks old
The pups have turned into little dogs. All systems are functioning - the pups are starting to run, pounce and climb. They are nursing standing up, lapping water from a bowl and eating soaked kibble. They are playing with each other, the adult dogs and people. They especially love human attention - true Goldens at heart. They have had their third nail trimming and second worming. The pups all gained over 1 lb this last week. The big pups ranged from 5 lbs 3 oz (Ali, Eugene, Orie) to 5 lbs 13 oz (Oz). Little Guy gained a respectable 1 lb 5 oz and weighed in at 4 lbs 6 oz.
