For such little tinies, pups are sure hard work! We're still on every-two-hours-around-the-clock checkups.
I'm ever so grateful that the Farmboy takes night watch. I still have bouts of insomnia now and then, easily triggered by distrupted sleep. He's completely exhausted, but doesn't seem to have a hard time falling back asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow.
A couple of these critters hit the 2 pound mark by the end of their first week. We like it when that happens. The bigger they are, the better they can get around, the less vulnerable they become, and the less stressed out WE become.
Still no visitors and only minimal handling by the human parents to make sure weight is still being gained and everyone is getting a shot at the Mama when eating time rolls around.
Soon, they'll be big enough for some natural light photography, then let the real ooohs and aaahs begin!
