  1. Puppy Update

    October 27, 2010 by myeye

    The three bigger puppies continue to be bigger — Smooch, Victor and Udi are well over a pound.  Reba is gaining regularly and is over 11 oz.  She had a little further to go than did her siblings.  They are eight days old today.  It’s difficult to imagine that a week ago I was waiting for any one of them to make an appearance.  They are vocal — with expressed opinions on everything from when Leidy moves within the whelping box to when I put them in the warming box so I can change their bedding.  Leidy is eating well and seems to have plenty of milk for the fearsome foursome.  They are learning that when I pick them up they can cuddle — it’s not nearly as good as mom (I think it’s my lack of fur), but it’s still comfortable.

    I LOVE puppies.
