My daughter called me from NY. We are in stage 3 of Xara's development.
Her eyes are open and she's now attempting to run around and play. Still in the awkward stage of stumbling over her own feet but she's trying. Last night she was bouncing at Andria and growling and barking at her until Andria finally gave in and sat on the floor and played fetch with her with one of her cats toys LOL
Andria said she already knows to retrieve the toy and bring it back to be thrown again!!! I cannot wait to get this puppy!!! 3 more longggg weeks.
The mother developed mastitis (sp?) and can no longer nurse any of the pups so they are now on dog food mush and doing great with it. Xara will be introduced to it today for the first time to see how she likes it. She will be 4 weeks on Thursday and is going strong. No signs of any abnormalities thus far in her development which is awesome! She's still considerably smaller than her litter mates, but is catching up fast. One of the other pups from the litter is at the clinic now so that Xara will have a litter mate to play with and learn with, the vet felt that would be a good move since the pups can't be with mommy right now because she's so sick.
Andria is supposed to send me pics tonight of Xara so I can see how big she is now. I haven't had a new pic since she was 2 weeks old so I am anxious to get them!! I'll post when I do!
