The puppies continue to grow inside of Sophie’s expanding waistline and have almost doubled in size since last week’s post. Their puppy features are continuing to become more pronounced and Sophie is visibly pregnant now. As they mature the pigmentation of their skin is developing and within the next few days their nose will become clearly visible.
Sophie continues to do very well – although she is growing a bit less interactive with the others when it comes to playing and from time to time she gives Simson her two cents worth to stay away from her. She loves any time that I spend with only her and is most content when she is glued to my side or laying at my feet. She has lost her slim, trim physique and has a definite waddle in her walk these days. Here is a comparitive photo of Sophie a few months ago and her new shape at 5.5 weeks gestation:
Sophie has grown to 82 cm. in the abdominal area – I’m sure it will be quite awhile before she recognizes her own waistline again!!
