GrandPuppy Update :)


This is the latest photo of the grand puppies :) Most are growing like a weeds but there is one that is still pretty small and has really not grown at all :( We are worried about him and I have been hand feeding him every 4 hours this past week. The vet says that some puppies don’t learn to suckle right away and this makes them smaller. Then by time they figure it out the others are so much bigger and push them out of the way. Now we are not sure that is it because this puppy might just be naturally smaller. We have two reasons for this line of thought. The first is my black male schnauzer was from a litter of puppies that were being breed down to the new toy schnauzers. He was third generation and they don’t guarantee they will be small until the fifth generation. He is an average size mini schnauzer but he does have the genes for a toy schnauzer. The second reason is a little more apparent. We also have a male Yorkie : / yep he could be the daddy of some. We thought that he would be to small to reach our girl to mate but look at the puppy in the top left hand corner????? … looks like Yorkie colors to me …. so we might just have some Snorkie’s! Now if little tiny puppy (the one laying on top of the white one) is from our Yorkie and takes after his daddy ????? maybe he is suppose to be small. So we are just hoping for the best and will have to wait until they are a little bigger before we can truly say if they are Schnauzers or Snorkies :)

I loved seeing the progress of your fur babies, Inka. Is the little one having any trouble taking the food you are supplementing with? Feel so sorry for it..sure looks small and the neck looks long...or is it just the way s/he is laying. The white one makes a good pillow. The little one probably likes the extra warmth...poor baby. Keep posting pics so we can enjoy them too...

Cute puppies! There's usually a 'runt' in every litter of puppies, so probably nothing to worry about.........they usually are the 1st to be picked by a new owner too!

Oh my, I want one! I so am wanting a puppy! Just keep taking care of the "runt", he'll probably catch up eventually. There is usually always a small one.

Snorkies...how cute!

Snorkie! What a cute/funny name! The only one I've heard that is even better is a Shitzu/Poodle mix: A "Shitzipoo". They are darling!

Whether schnauzers or snorkies, they are all so darn cute!! Thanks for the update - with all the help you are giving the small one, I'm sure he'll be fine!
