Good news: it’s the weekend and we’ve got 10 wolves in our habitat. (While high, that’s the number we hope we have each time we post). I mentioned on Monday when the pups were born that there is this fine line of letting the wolves be and making sure the pups are doing okay. The pups seemed okay on day one, even the little one. However making sure the pups’ feet were okay and that they were all gaining weight was critical to know. So we did our quick hands-on yesterday morning. We were in and out in less than 17 minutes. We confirmed all six pups (four males and two females) had gained weight– some quite a bit. We put antibiotic ointment on a few pup’s dewclaws, but no foot abrasions at all, so that’s great news. Everyone was vocal, loud, and wiggly—also good news. We made a laminated photo of all the ID pictures side by side so we can take it in with us for our checks. This should be good for the first 4-6 weeks.
