J-S Pups Day 12: Look how big!

 The pups continue to gain weight and now look more like miniature Weims than guinea pigs.  All their eyes are now open in varying degrees but we are keeping the lights low and have banned flash photography for a few days to protect their developing eyes. We are doing the best we can to take pictures of the pups without using a flash. Their vision however, is not very sharp but don't worry by day 18 or so, they will be able to focus on objects and people. Very young Weimaraner puppies have striking blue eyes. As the pups mature, their eye color changes to shades of light amber, gray, or blue-gray.
 They still nurse aggressively, vying for the best spot at the milk bar.  Chase, aka Mr. Orange, hasn't mastered the art of nursing so we are still bottle feeding him.
