14 day old puppies

On Sunday February 28, 2010, Nola's puppies turned 14 days old. It is known that puppies open their eyes between 10 days and 14 days of age, and sometimes even as late as 18 days.

Today (02-28-10), two of the six puppies opened their eyes. One of the two opened both his eyes, and the other only had one eye open.

It is really cool to see the rest twitch their eyes in an attempt to open them, but they can't.

Why are puppies born with their eyes closed?

This is a great post. I just had one of the ‘Doh!’ moments and ran back to correct my own site before publishing my comment. You see my own comment form did not match what I’m about to advice. I get less comment than you, so never noticed any problem. I’ve changed it now anyway so here goes.
