Mostly they still sleep now but the cute quotient has increased exponentially in the last couple days. Once their eyes are open all bets will be off. Mr Light Wheaton and Mr Blue have to stick together since they are the only boys and you know how girls can get when they gang up on you.
It's hard not to be drawn to Mini who is a little spitfire of determination. I only supplemented her on the second day, after that there didn't seem to be any need and I was right. Giving this puppy extra food would not necessarily have made her bigger, it would have just made her fatter which she didn't really need. Besides, who among us would disagree that Mother's milk is the best thing for growing babies?
I watched Mini this morning when she was on the outer edge of the puppy pile. She determined that she wasn't warm enough so she started to wiggle her way into the centre of the group. I was curious to see if she could because she'd have to squeeze in between puppies who are more than twice her size. Sure enough she squirmed right into the middle and fell fast asleep under some fat siblings. There she is under Miss Orange and Miss Pink.
And Miss Lime has her own little tiny neck warmer. Lucky gal. I can't get over the difference in head sizes here and Miss Lime ... she isn't even the biggest puppy! Looks like Daddy Boy had quite an influence on the girls!
