Only one more scheduled pup check is left.
The last one went very well. The first team went and got the pups quickly from the yard into the den. From there we crated the pups. The pups are so big now (each about 10 Kg) that we put them in a large crate together and took them out to our work area.
A lot had to be done during this check-up. Two dewormers, the last vaccine, general check up, and today was microchip day. We can still tell the pups apart, but it’s important that each one always be able to be clearly identified. As always, the pups were weighed. Both are just about the same weight now — 10.15 and 10.25 Kg.
People always ask me what the parents do when we go in to check on the pups. For the most part, they move away from us and sit in a far corner. It was no different today.
And when we’re all done, we let the pups back into the exhibit and all returns to normal quickly. Both pups ran up onto the cliff with their parents.
Next pup check is the middle of the month… more news then.
