Cyda‘s puppies are now over a week old and are growing fast. Their eyes will soon be open and they’ll start to develop their own little personalities. Then they’ll be more mobile before we know where we are. At the moment the entrance to their bed is turned against the wall so that they cannot get out and get cold, but we’ll turn it round at that stage so they can explore a wider area. At around 4 weeks they will be more able to regulate their own body temperature so the heat pad will be less critical – except for night-time and if the temperature plummets during the day.
