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.
