Everyone is doing great and doing what pup's should be doing - eating, sleeping, playing a little, eating more, sleeping more. Some of them have their milk teeth coming through which would probably explain why Coco-Bean is a little reluctant to feed them at times. In preparation for weaning at the end of the week we have started to offer the puppies a dish of milk replacement for them to practice lapping. Things got quite messy with all 8 puppies wanting to take a drink at the same time and at one point Miss Pink decided she was going for a swim. This is a pic of two of them just as they were learning to lap the milk from the dish:
Playtime is becoming more frequent now and its fun to watch as they wobble around and nibble on each others ears. This photo is of Miss Yellow and Miss Rose having a little play time. The arm in the background belongs to my daughter who spends quite a bit of time sitting in the kennel these days :)
And here is little Miss Pink, still the smallest of the bunch weighing in at just under 2lbs. She may well be the smallest but she has a big voice. I took this photo of her as she was 'singing' away during a session of playtime.
And on top of the puppy pile during a friendly scrap handsome Mr Red poses nicely for the camera!
And finally, Eugene and Bruno having a bonding moment. Bruno has come on leaps and bounds and is now weighing in at 2lbs 2 oz! He and Miss Pink still have some catching up to do but they are gaining weight steadily each day and hopefully they will make up some lost ground once we start weaning.
So, until the next update,
