1 Day Old Hokkaido Babies

IMG_2474

Hokkaido babies are over 24 hours old and are hitting their milestones, top of their class for nursing and crawling, and all gaining weight. To be honest, I was sort of dreading managing another huge Hokkaido litter, but 4 is a perfectly manageable amount and not too much for mom Kurasi to take care of in her own.

In fact, Kurasi is excelling at being a mom and it suits her. She is quiet, undemanding, devoted and careful with them and doesn’t care if I am there or not (although she loves the extra attention). I thought she would be extra clingy like her mom was with the first Hokkaido litter, but nope! She is doing super. I also battled constant diarrhea with Genko until the puppies were weaned, so implemented my strategies I already learned early on for Kurasi, and so far, it’s working well.

This litter experience is so far quite enjoyable (minus lack of sleep), and I hope the trend continues!
