What a good dad!

Monday we shared video of M1803 in the den while mom, F2062, nursed. Two more videos of Dad’s interactions: the first, is him dropping off food (a rat) for his family. The second has Dad and a pup with some very sweet together time 🙂Read more

Yesterday’s pup check

We had great weather yesterday to do our 4-week check on the pups. We gathered our team, supplies, and made our work plan for entering the yard. At 4-weeks, the pups are more mobile, their ears are starting to get pointy, snout longer, eyes are open, and their dark color is starting to fade on their legs in particular. By next check, the blazes on their chest will likely be very faded. We still use our newborn pup check sheetRead more

2-Week Pup Check

These five weigh from 1,246 grams to 1,482 grams. That means at just two weeks old, our large male is over 3 andRead more
