The Fast and the Furious

The bigger the puppies get the faster they can eat and that means milk moustaches for everyone. Mini has the 'Got Milk?' face down to an art and her brother Mr Blue isn't too far behind. The side effect of eating fast and furious is a fat little tummy. Sometimes the puppies get so round in the belly that they could probably just roll everywhere.

You start to worry sometimes that they'll pop but I haven't seen a puppy yet who managed that. Even so, when they are as pot-bellied as Mini is in this photo you wonder whether they have an off switch or not. They keep eating even when they are beyond capacity - I think they don't realize they're full right away and the instinct to keep eating as long as possible is stronger than the off button for their tummy.

The end result of eating is always the same no matter who you are. Sometimes, if you're lucky, you can accomplish both incoming and outgoing at the same time! Leeloo is here to help but the past few days have seen the puppies start to go potty on their own. My tenure with clean up duties is about to start!
