R the eyes still blue. They still are blueish at 3 wks. I got a pix of Murphy at that age.

Just looked at the pix posted... looks just like Murphy at that age. Yeah, 3 wks I'd say

Thanks for your help!! I have a few more questions to ask. I appologize for seeming cluless, I have always had dogs but this is the first puppy I have ever had (my other dogs I rescued from the pound). How often should he have a bm? He has peed many times since I got him but thats all. I read some where that puppies need to be stimulated, do I need to do this and if so HOW??

Yes you should stimulate him at that age in order for him to have a bm. Take a warm wash rag and wipe it on butt area with it to simulate what a momma dog would do. momma dogs lick that area in order to get bowels moving.

I would think you should need to do this several times a day. However, more expereinced on this board while chime in to help you!

The blue in that pix is intense because of the flash. He was one day away from 3 wks there...

I agree.. vet him. Feed him. Pet him, rub him. Vet him ... watch him grow. Worm him. too. Bet he's full of them

Thank you so very much for all the help! I am going to start calling some vets out of the phone book as soon as they open. How do I know if the vet is any good?
