Hi, this is my first post here. My dog(half German Shepherd, half lab) had eleven puppies two weeks ago, and I am clueless.....I have them in a huge box(as big as a refrigerator), and I have a notch in the side so that the mom can get out but the puppies can't. I'm just not sure what to do as they get older. I put newspapers in the bottom of the box, but it seems like I have to change them every hour or so. My main question is, where do I keep them when they get older? I have a dog door that goes outside, so will they follow their mom outside to go the bathroom? Also, a couple of them cry a lot, could it be that they are having trouble going to the bathroom on their own and they need their mom to lick them? Sorry for all the questions, I am just lost as far as newborn puppies go.
