The Puppies Are Growing!
This has been a wonderful week. I am amazed at how much fun it can be just staring at puppies! My family has spent a lot of time gathered around the whelping box, which I might add is the bombdiggity and I highly recommend it!
The changes have been coming fast and loose. They are growing like weeds. They have gone from looking like white rats, to piglets and now I swear they look like mini white manatees. They are so fat that I wonder if their little legs will be able to support them. I guess we will see....
I was extolling the merits of having puppies to Bob and he reminded me that the first weeks are the easiest as Daisy takes care of all of the duties. I wonder if there is such a thing as ape puppy nanny or puppy au pere??? I'm not much of a worker bee...I'm a delicate flower...LOL Good try right?! Dr. Lee says I better get ready for the work, but so far so good.
We went for our weigh in on Monday and everybody gained a half a pound (including me d$%^ it!)1 Daisy lost 5 ilbs of her babyweight. She might as well give it up because we all know your figure goes to hell in a hand basket after child/puppy birth. I didn't tell her though, let her hope for a while poor thing...bless her heart.
Maryann at Dr. Lee's office took good care of the puppies and Daisy wanted to help!
