Final notes:  Uncle John's Band left us at 5 am on Sept 22nd 2021.  Involved, enthusiastic and fond of food, UJB will be an August West Clone at least physically.  Emotionally and temperament he is bolder than Auggie was at this age, and loves loves loves people more than Auggie did. He will opt to follow people over the other adult dogs.   Consequently, he is becoming bonded with people. He relies on human interaction. Dave reads to the dogs at least twice a week, it fosters an understanding of our voice tones. UJB is fluent in eye contact.  

Body and bone - At almost 37 lbs, for a 14 week old he's nice'n'solid.  The best legs of the whole litter, as I said he's an Auggie clone. He is not as agile as some, a bit clutsy even. Both testicles descended, a picture of outstanding health and good attitude.

Eating pooping sleeping.- Currently on Iams brand puppy food, approx. 4 cups per day (twice a day, 7 am and 6 pm consistently.) he leaves his food bowl often to see what is happening around him. Shows no signs of resource guarding.  Poops range from semi-solid piles to little dog logs.  He likes putting stuff in his mouth, but is not a chronic "swallower".  Takes treats well, his favorite is everything.  Occasionally, I need the dogs to eat quickly, and eat all of it, so I'll add a teaspoon of canned food and warm water to the food.  This doesn't seem to bother his belly at all. He sleeps well, but is ready to get up when he hears us stir. Vocal about it even, he can get loud if not let out right away. For the past five days there have not been any poops or pees in the kennel overnight.  He sleeps with Auntie Pearl, so kenneling him with something soft and fuzzy will help him through the night.  

Dogs of Fennario 5 weeks report -

Uncle John is the leader of his band.  The other pups follow his lead and he know it, so he will instigate a racous between his siblings, then referee the squabble like he had nothing to with it.  He's targeted on people more than dogs sometimes ignoring eating to be noticed by "the giants" (humans). He copes well with stress, now, as a neonate he did not.  Not a big complainer he "is" patient, but will lose focus on what he's waiting for quickly.

 

Body and bone - Uncle John is still one of the largest pups with a broad back and nice angulation to his front and rear assembly.  His tail has a slight curl when held at attention. His eyes are on the brighter side of blue at this stage telling me he should have very light brown eyes.  He looks to me like he will resemble Auggie quite a bit when grown, reaching 100 lbs by his first year, perhaps topping out at 130lbs by three years of age.  He has a double dew claw like Stella Blue's on one rear foot. I would recommend discussing having it removed when he is nuetered, as it was get it the way and will need regular nail trims more often than his well rounded paws will.

Eating pooping sleeping - All of this litter took their time being weaned. At five weeks on the nose their dam started to run away from them and wouldn't lay down without being forced to.  We have been offering solid food for almost two weeks now, and with mom out of the picture they seem to be giving it a lot more thought.  All of this litter including uncle John have had solid poops throughout their young lives, and this remains at five weeks old a constant. 

He sleeps well and heavily, not having had a reason to be noisy in the night since he was a week old.  I see him sleeping "long" full body stretch and lots of twitching. Twitching is good.

TEMPERAMENT TEST SCORES - 3 days, 3 weeks, 6 weeks

3 Day notes
 The first born, and still the biggest puppy he has a voracious appetite. With what seems an appreciation for his fellow kin, I can always find him under or beside another puppy. He stays with mom long enough to eat, then finds an open space in to crash. The other puppies make their way over to him and pile around him.  When turned over he is curious why the world turn upside down. Waits to see what will happen next.  He's bossy and pushy, muscling the other pups off the prime teat, which appears to be in the middle.  He has gained weight steadily.  When placed on the scale he bobs his head a bit from side to side then is completely still, waiting for the next thing to happen.  
3 day score:  8
3 week notes
Our temperament tests are modelled after Volhard Temp. tests, tweaked a bit for their age. In the social attraction category Uncle John was somewhat aloof, striking out on his own instead of turning into me.  A healthy curiosity about his surroundings.  He stiffened and struggled for being turned over.  He Dangled well, no struggle, no sound. Pulled his foot back right away for touch sensitivity. Relatively quiet for the whole test, giving whiny grunts when handled.  For sound sensitivity he stopped what he was doing when he heard the sound, but did not turn into or away from it, just went about his business.  For sight, again, he stopped and looked at the sudden appearing bright object, but did not turn into or away from it, just continued his exploring. When placed back in the whelping box he sat  (in shock?) still for an extended time, then plopped down and went to sleep. 
Weight 3 weeks: 6.9 lbs.
3 week score : 7-8

6 week temperament test notes:  Different than the 3 week tests, these scores are over a period of days and careful observation is to credit. Uncle John likes people, and wants to know what can he do to help? Him. Self.   he seeks interaction occasionally but likes being watched. Aware of eye contact he uses it sparingly.   

Weight 7 weeks: 17.5 lbs
