Bolts is estimated at 29 days of age today. He weighed in at 9 lbs today and is showing steady weight gain, but is highly affected by changes in staffing. When new people arrive for training, he is reserved and may be reluctant to eat. This is a very critical time for pup development and one missed meal can be crucial. Wolf care staff are always on site to ensure that the pups get their physical needs met. As we addressed earlier, he is a bit more reserved than Peanuts. We are very fortunate that he responds so positively to Oscar, and we can reduce the anxiety significantly with a little Oscar distraction. Bolts is not shy with wolf care staff and he readily recognizes the core staff, it's just the adaptation to new people. This is characteristic of wolves and is one of the biggest differences between wolf and dog pups. His weight development is as follows: <li> 4/23 – 9 lbs<li> 4/22 – 8.6 lbs<li> 4/21- 8.4 lbs<li> 4/20 – 8.0 lbs<li> 4/19 – 7.5 lbs<li> 4/18 – No weight taken <li> 4/17 – 6.7 lbs<li> 4/16 – 5.9 lbs<li> 4/15 – 5.9 lbs 4/14 -No weight taken<li> 4/13 – Pick up Day 5.4 lbs
