The puppies will squeal and whine a bit when they feel like the milk isn't flowing quickly enough or when they are positioned on the wrong side of their mom. Today they discovered they can also make other sounds with their voices and we've heard the first little 'growls'.
The puppies had their first visitors this week. We believe it's good for mom and babies to not be disturbed too much during the first three weeks, but we make an exception for our close family. My mother and my sister, brother-in-law and their daughter Djo were special visitors, because they were also the first to visit when Maeva was only one week old.
Below you will find a selection of pictures of the first week and some of the ones we made yesterday. We collect the pictures in albums on Flickr:
