These two Golden retriever puppies were born on November 17, 2013. Riley is from ICAN's Tony Stewart Foundation litter. Brule is a handsome boy from Colorado. These pups will hopefully become assistance dogs when they grow up.

2 weeks old
2 weeks old and thriving. Stormy weighed 3 lbs 9.5 oz and Twister weighed 3 lbs 7 oz. The pups had their second nail trim and first worming. BioSensor exercises are soon ending (Day 16). The pups are getting lots of cuddles with people which they seem to enjoy. As is typical with these 2-pup litters with big overfed puppies, these two pups are not doing much other than eating and sleeping. A few attempts at walking, but life has been too easy to exert too much effort. I have felt a few wet spots in the pen, so presumably the pups are starting to urinate on their own. Usually by this age I have introduced a litter pan, but that is for pups who are more mobile. For these two, will probably just wait until they move into the bigger puppy pen at around 3 weeks of age.
