She has also been allowed by Leeloo to look at the puppies. Leeloo's motherly duties have relaxed of late and looking is okay, sometimes smelling is okay but interacting with them is strictly verboten at this point particularly if they are with Leeloo and nursing. Cora's interest remains peaked and she's in for a lovely surprise once they start running around. 'Lovely' and 'surprise' being relative.
And judging by the progress I am seeing in just the past couple days that will be very soon indeed! Mr Blue knew his Momma was somewhere close by but couldn't get to her. Where there's a will ...
Miss Yellow decided to wait her turn and earned bonus points for sitting pretty. Look at that lovely dome, let's hope there's more brains in there than her father! Who am I kidding? She's a girl, she's bound to be smarter than Daddy Boy!

The whelping box is almost too small now for these guys to explore, just about another week or so and I'll have to upgrade them to a larger area. Once they start thinking about climbing out all bets are off! I took out two of the pigrails to make more room and left the two on the sides Leeloo is most likely to lie against. I'm ever conscious of the danger of Leeloo lying on one and will only rest easy when she is denied access to them during the day ... or when they are more mobile and can see better!
