||Morning picture, not sure what Beckett was trying to say Morning
Afternoon all snoozing
||Busy morning taking weights, trimming toe nails and letting out collars. Four days old and they no longer look like newborns. Their waist and butts are filling out nicely.
Morning milk coma
Noon close up . The biggest pup is Mr. Orange (chocolate), the next biggest is the Pink girl (chocolate). The smallest two are Ms Purple, and Mr Blue, both are black.

||A week old already

||Now the swimming pool is getting too crowded. Toenails were clipped again and most of the pups
have "big pup" collas on now. No more rickrack. Tomorrow might be the time for a bigger pool until their eyes open. The pups are no longer slithering
around the pool, most are up on their feet a bit to get around and their noses have been above the side of the pool. I'm surprised they can get their big tummys
raised up at all.
After collars .
