BioSensor exercises have begun

Hermione and 4-day old pups

Hermione and the pups continue to thrive. The pups were 12-15 oz at birth and currently most weigh over 20 oz. Best of all, there are no puppies lagging behind, all are gaining weight and are very vigorous. For being only 4 days old, this litter is amazingly precocious - not seeming to get chilled very easily, are vigorous commando crawlers, and their eyelids are already barely starting to crack open at the inner corners. Hermione has lost her intense maternal interest and has begun to leave the pups for short periods of time, but still is a very attentive mama. She continues to produce lots of milk and is currently scarfing down 6 cups of high calorie performance dog kibble per day. On Monday evening, I started BioSensor early neurological stimulation exercises which will continue until the pups are 16 days old.
