Kepi X Gunner Puppies 2 Weeks Old!

Eyes and ears are open as of a few days ago.  Puppies can now regulate their body temperature.  They are still heat-seeking missles headed toward their mother, but mother Kepi is spending a bit of time outside the whelping box now during puppy nap times.  Temps have been down to below freezing and puppies are thriving in a 3 sided shelter with 2 heat lamps above the whelping box, where they have been since birth.  In another week, they will begin to be introduced to solid food and begin to have access to climb in and out of the whelping box ("wheelchair accessible" ramps added).
