Puppies, See How They Grow, Cell to Embryo and Beyond

by Mary Haight on November 18, 2011

Yesterday I was talking to a friend who was sharing his enthusiasm about infographics and curation - that act of bringing order to information overload – and I tripped over this puppy growth chart from conception to old age.  I was following up on following back new Twitter pals (so far behind, but working on it) and thought this infographic from Pet365.co.uk was share-worthy, a fun graphic for kids, and great information for those who haven’t had puppies around in a very long while.  I first saw this puppy development chart at Pack People :

I also love infographics. And this chart is certainly better for families than just having a litter to teach the kids about the miracle of life.

I do like that info in sections 3 and 4. As a rule we don't adopt puppies because, to be blunt, I never saw why I should do all the work of raising a pup when there are plenty of perfectly well-adjusted older dogs that are in need of homes. Rumpy is an exception, but that's because he was SUPPOSED to just stay until his owner claimed him. So, anyway, It's always helpful to know more of what to expect as your dog ages, especially if you, like me, don't have the whole history of the dog. Thanks for the post!

;-D Yes - so much better to witness the miracle of birth through something that does no harm and actually better educates a child than a pregnant cat or dog. Seems to me that this chart could potentially be used to instill respect for the differences between humans and their companion animals. Lowering expectations of immediate obedience or even that the animal understands what it is that is being asked is a very good way to plant the seed of patience. These infographics are pretty cool!

Ha! Yes, I understand your point, I've had a puppy twice, once when I was young, and I got Tashi at 7 months because he was picked up in the projects and our shelter had no room:) It's great to have a refresher like this;) Thanks for stopping by, rumpydog!
