It’s been a few days since I last updated my blog about my premature puppies. It’s so sad because the third female puppy passed away yesterday morning. I knew she had a slim chance of surviving. I am monitoring their weight everyday and I noticed that the third shih tzu puppy is not gaining weight. Instead, she is losing weight everyday even if she is feeding from her mom plus the milk replacer. She was the second to the largest puppy (the largest was the male puppy) that came out last Sunday but she was left behind by the fifth puppy already. Here is the last video I took before the third puppy crossed the rainbow bridge:

Notice the difference in size between the two shih tzu puppies? The third puppy is on the left side while the youngest puppy is on the right side

Fifth Shih Tzu Puppy

This is the last puppy left under my care. I am hoping that she will live. I have high hopes that she will. She now weighs 175 grams from 115 grams in Day 1. She is one cute puppy, isn’t she? She looks like Charlie Chaplin here 😀 .

    Paw lifting is a dog's way to call your attention. It may be an invitation to play or a means to tell you something else.
    Raised hackles indicate arousal, either because a dog is frightened or is challenging another dog. Smooth hackles show a dog is calm.
    Direct eye contact means that a dog is feeling bold and confident. Casual eye contact means he's contented. An averted gaze means indifference. Dilated pupils indicate fear.
    Yawning may indicate anticipation or stress. It increases heart rate and blood flow to the brain. Filling the lungs with oxygen and removing carbon dioxide. In fact, it helps a dog energize his body and gathers his wits.
    Pawing is an appeasing gesture. Licking another dog's face is an invitation to play or sign of deference.
