Puppy Pairs

Puppy Pairs

Prepare once again for a cuteness attack! Puppy pairs, but not necessarily two puppies. Sometimes, it’s a bunny or a kitten or a parent dog with the puppy, but all soooo cute.

Years ago, I had the great good fortune to have a pair of cocker spaniels, a brother and sister from the same litter. One of the reasons I wanted two dogs was so that they would always be able to keep each other company. And they did. They shared a kennel together every night of their lives until the female, Duchess, died at age 12. The male, my sweetheart Duke, lived to be 16. They were a competitive pair, though. Especially Duchess. As the runt of the litter, she fought for everything, a trait she exhibited her entire life. They’ve been gone for years and I still miss them both. 

Though I’ve included a few interesting facts about puppies, today’s blog is more about adorableness than anything else. Enjoy!

FunFacts about Puppies (Source) (Source) (Source)

  • When puppies are born, they can’t see, hear or smell. They begin to see and hear within 1 to 2 weeks of birth. They gain a sense of smell at about three weeks.
    • Because of this, what a puppy experiences first is the sense of touch.
  • Puppies sleep 15-20 hours a day.
  • At 6-12 weeks of age, a puppy should eat four small meals a day.
  • Puppies are born as part of a litter and get lonely if they’re not surrounded by their pack.
  • Puppies teeth grow when they are chewing, so they need lots of chewing time.
  • Puppies leave puppy-hood when they are anywhere between 9 and 12 months old.
  • Paw size in puppies is a strong indicator of how big the pup will be when it’s full grown. Bigger the paws, bigger the dog.
  • Puppies don’t have teeth until four weeks.
  • Puppies will interpret a smile as a sign of aggression because the human is baring its teeth.
