4. So you can keep track of which pup is which

When you weigh them, you want to make sure which pup you are weighing accurately. You need to know if a pup is gaining or losing weight.

8. They look like they don't have joints and bones.

Their little bodies and legs are so flexible and without yoga.

10. If you look at an x-ray of a 2 week old puppy,

Their bones and joints are not formed yet. These guys are only 1 week

11. That makes sense.

When I taught my students I showed them x-rays of an adult's hand and a baby's hand where the bones and joints are still forming and soft, in fact all the bones and joints including the skull (why babies have more "bones"are like this.
