Not much to add, other than that all three pups are doing well – the boy, the girl, and Mr. Monkey.
Mr. Monkey is now an official part of her litter, taking ‘naps’ with his brother and sister, and getting nudged onto Sailor’s nipples to ‘nurse’. Last night, I screwed up and chucked him onto Sailor’s bed on the floor while I was changing the whelping box, and she looked at me with an expression of horror usually reserved for mass murderers and people who drive slowly in the left hand lane.
I quickly returned him to her side, where she cleaned him off tenderly and tucked him underneath her side, all while giving me looks that made me feel like something less than dirt.
I was thinking of chucking Mr. Monkey in the washing machine, but shudder to imagine Sailor’s expression at watching her ‘child’ swirling around in hot soapy water. She’d probably call animal control on me.
Below the cut are some new photos of the pups and their brown and orange big brother. Clicking on the thumbnails will take you to the full sized images. Alternately, you can go straight to the entire photos set here.
BTW, cam should be up by Monday morning!
