Default Newborn Diary

How lovely, a place I can ramble on about my babies to my heart's content!
Willie is my male, he is an almost 5 pound chi. Black and White. I got him when I had to move into a small apartment and couldn't imagine not having a dog. I never pictured myself owning a chi, but Willie captured my heart. I started reading about chis, and when I found his breeder online I called her up and we spoke for hours. I was impressed by her honesty and love for her dogs. Willie'd dad was just a bitty-tiny boy with a wonderful perigree full of champions. And his mom, was a beauty, well put together with a great temperment. My biggest concern was that the breeder lived half way across the country and I didn't like idea of having him shipped and not being able to meet his parents in person. So I walked around sulking for a week and staring at his pictures for days on end. When I couldn't stand it anymore I decided to buy him after all. Willie was born in November and it was March. After what seemed like forever, there was finally a day warm enough to ship him home to me!!!
I expected a shivery, nervous and soiled puppy to greet me at the airport. Boy do I laugh when I look back upon that wonderful, joyous day! This lil man was clean as a whistle and the way he trotted out of his shipping crate!
He owned the world...This pup had no fear and was the most social pup I had seen in a long time. I will never regret choosing him. He is going to be 3 this year, and what a personality. Everyone he meets is a potential "best friend." Now I have to dig up some baby pictures of him.

Well trying to resize the pictures was a disaster. I have no gumption and gave up.
Instead I would like to share a picture of mom with her babies, as this diary is their's.
That black and white boy, was just being born. He was #3 in birth order. The next picture I took yesterday. That black and white boy is the smallest of the litter but he is already making certain he gets his share of mom's milk!

I bought my kitchen scale today, so I can chart the babies daily weights. When we went to the vet's, the scale said that all the pups weighed .4, which I found hard to believe, as 2 of the babies look bigger, two smaller and one is right in the middle.
I am not sure how accurate my scale is, especially since I sent hubby to buy one (and he bought a cheapie!) sooo I ended up with a $30 scale.
I suppose it's better than none, and I will be able to know for sure if my lil ones are gaining. So here are their weights for today:

FAWN MALE----- 6-3/8

BLACK MALE----- 6-3/8

BLK/WH MALE----5-1/8

FAWN FEMALE----5-1/4

BRINDLE MALE---5-5/8

Here's mom and dad (Willie and Mully) right before her pregnancy. I had to resize, so hopefully the quality is okay

12 Hours since the last weigh-in, I planned on waiting 24, but I am just so impatient. I really hope that the standard guideline Chi Weight Chart is as general as everyone says, because at the rate these guys are growing I will have 20 pound babies!!!! LOL
I also took pictures while they were on the scale, and as I took their pictures, Mully left two gigantic poops on my kitchen floor (I didn't put them on the scale, but they were HUGE!) Guess I was taking too long with her babies.
I am going to do individual posts for each baby and weight. Here is Male #1

Yesterday 6-3/8---->Today-------> 6-3/4
