CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!
Good Afternoon Chilliwack Labradoodle Families!
This our two-week Pup Date on the puppies from The Phantom Of Our Opera Litter.
This second week of life for our puppies has been an accomplished one. Sakura still needs to help the puppies eliminate and cleans up after them. However, they are starting to do this on their own now as well. For the past week, the puppies have scootched around on their tummies working on building strength for the big day when they could stand on all fours. That day came this past week, our four-legged babies pull themselves up onto all fours and wobble about like Bambie. It is truly beautiful to watch.
The big milestone for this week is that the puppies are starting to open their eyes! Later this week their eyes should be fully open. Our Labradoodles are born with blue eyes, this will change over time turning to brown, or hazel/green. The puppies can now see outlines and shapes but they still cannot hear. Their ears start to open at about three weeks old, it will often take longer than three weeks for this to occur.
Let's take a look at how each of our large mini-small medium Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.
I will go through each puppy in the order of birth.
1.) Black Ribbon gone but not forgotten.
This little one will forever be in our hearts!
2.) Our next born is Blue Ribbon boy. He wears a majestic black coat with slight Phantom markings. It will be interesting to see if his markings deepen over time.
Blue Ribbon boy was born weighing in at 7.3 ounces He now weighs in at 1 lb 14.6 ounces
3.) Purple Ribbon girl is our number three born, her coat is the fabulous chocolate phantom pattern with a shadow of white flash on her chin.

4.) Our Red Ribbon girl was born fourth in the litter. She has decadent chocolate, silky soft coat with a tiny white flash on her chest. This girl is resilient! Despite her size, we are excited to report today she is able to use it to her advantage and easily find her place at the milk bar! Her weight has consistently increased each day and is meeting age-appropriate milestones.

5.) Our number five girl is Ms. Pink Ribbon. She also has a gorgeous chocolate phantom coat, with just a hint of white flash on her chin, top of her chest and tips of her back toes.

6.) Orange Ribbon boy was born sixth and wears a distinct black phantom coat, with white flash on his chin, neck and disappears into the top of his chest.
