The puppies here are two weeks old, their eyes and ears are still closed and everything they know is by touch and smell.
As you can see, Motherhood agrees with Silver...
These darn kids! Payback is hell Brut!
Here's a common feeding time. See how they are pushing their little paws to get right up to the teat. They made a suckling noise and oohs and ahhs while eating.
One, two, three, pump them legs!
Now here we have the diver. See the white pup with his tail sticking up? The puppies would take turns climbing to the top of the heap and then "dive" into the pack trying to find a teat.
There are just a few left finishing up. The white pups were the "pigs" of the bunch. The started first and ended last. Never missing a drop.
Full bellies, getting ..very...sleepy
This is one of my favorites photos. This is Zappa on the left, snuggled with his "twin" Blaze on the right. You can see where Blaze gets her name. Her blaze eventually faded, but it is still there. The white on Zappa eventually splits in two so that he has a line on his forehead and a very faint one on his nose.
I love you brother. I love you sissy.
