Very good to hear. All went well then, except for the two who didn't make it?

I hope everything goes well from here on. Good luck.

OK, folks ... this is DEFINITELY a troll since we all know that puppies eyes don't open for two weeks. That was the only part of this illiterate rambling that was decipherable. PLEASE don't feed the trolls!

Actually if you look at the time line of the 1st post and the post about opening eyes thats at 14days...not saying its not a troll but that part doesn't confirm it.

The mom went into labor (as per previous post) on 10/17 so the 10 days old is as of today's edit, not the 10/23 edit.

No, there is not proof of this here!

I’m sorry but some people seem bound and determined to expose this as a fake story and it is my nature to stand up for the underdog and falsely accused.

So I did some research – and it didn’t take much to find a number of references of eyes opening as early as 7 and 9 days. One reference noted that it can vary with breed - cocker spaniels open their eyes sooner than fox terriers. I have limited personal experience but I have had some exposure to a number of cocker litters from a few days old to several weeks.

Do eyes suddenly pop open at 14 days? Of course not! It’s a gradual thing. It starts with a little squinty eye where you can just see the glint of light off the eyeball. Do they see anything very much? No. The point is that it varies and it is also open to interpretation as to when you call them 'open' so don’t assume that it’s not a valid observation that eyes are opening at 10 days.

Furthermore, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d rather be the source of entertainment for a bored “troll” while giving out well considered advice based on a made up story, than risk leaving a total novice to deal with birthing and raising this litter without any advice or support. I like to think that Scamp has access to some personal support in this but if not . . .

I agree 100%
