Joy and her boy are doing pretty well. The pup lost some weight after birth which happens sometimes. It took him a few days to start putting weight back on. I imagine it was the stress of his rough delivery. He just needed to get over that initial hump and start putting on weight, which is he finally doing. He was 11.2 ounces at birth, but he’s not near as chubby as Presley was at this point. Fingers crossed he doesn’t grow as big as his cousin/brother. 😉
Mom has plenty of milk, they are parked next to the wood stove so their crate (which I cover with a blanket) is cozy. I put a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel for him to cuddle next too should he get too far away from mom (although mom tends to get to warm and want to dig up her bed and lie on the bottom of the plastic crate). He lets me know if he’s not happy or if mom messed up the bed and he ended up under it. He just needed to get over that initial hump and start putting on weight, which he has finally done.
