So as you can imagine it's busy here trying to watch and observe these 10 puppies. All seem fine, all have gained weight. 3 are now over 2 lbs. Amazing. They are not gaining by leaps and bounds but steadily. Here is a photo of them in the box while I'm changing the bedding in the whelping box. They are now big enough to really fill it up, except I kept spreading them out and they kept piling on top of one another. There's just so many!! I will have to find another bin to hold them while I clean every day. Many now have little slits for eyes as they are beginning to open. For the most part, they're not terribly loud, except when I move them when they are so comfortable in their sibling pile up. And their pigmentation is coming in on all the muzzles and some with the pads of their feet. Fascinating to watch. OK, it's late enough and I'm tired from working outside today and keeping track of all the dogs, sheep and chickens. Oh yeah, my husband too. I hear the dryer buzzer sounding...time to go.
But then again ~ Maybe I AM!
