Friday my little guy was TWO WEEKS OLD!!! Mom is alternating between thinking he looks wonderful and thinking he really might not survive. I am not sure what her problem is, I think he looks fine! Mom says she was happy that he weighed 10 ounces last week...that is until she used the postage scale at work and he only weighed FIVE ounces. Of course, then she had a fit!!! He should have been around 10 to 14 ounces then.
So, I told her to use BOTH scales...one has got to be right and as long as he is getting heavier on both of them it's fine! So today she weighed him on the old kitchen scale and he was 18 ounces!!!!! That is pretty much normal for two weeks old, BOL! When she did her dog food order this week she got him some Stella & Chewey's premade raw. She thinks he will be eating it by the coming weekend. He is now lapping at things, so he is learning!!
She says he is still VERY strong and alert and demanding! He knows when it is feeding time and won't let Mom forget him. Although, this morning Mom did say she slept THRU the 5 am alarm... he was fine!!
I am not allowed to see him cuz it only upsets him when he can't nurse off me. Because of all the drugs I was taking he wasn't allowed to drink my milk, now it is pretty much all dried up.
I don't mind... Mom is doing fine with him and I can go back to my new home even sooner this way! Mom thought I was going this weekend but turns out, it isn't for TWO MORE WEEKS!
I am okay with that, I have discovered Quincy is a GREAT playmate!!! We stay in the in/out pen during the day when he isn't at daycare and we play and play and play! He is almost as much fun as Toto!!!
Today Mom bought us a turkey... I guess she remembered how much I LOVE turkey!!! She said we can't have it for THREE more days, darn it all!!!

Sooo pleased the Little One is doing so well.... might want to invest in scales that weigh consistently ?? LOL....
Glad you are doing well too. It was a rough time for a while.
