Happy Birthday Dear Puppies!
I was so busy over the last few weeks that I forgot to do a “Happy Birthday” post for Bunny’s puppies. The fat little hamsters turned one week old on Sunday, and continue to increase exponentially in cuteness. At this rate, they will be a virtual black hole of adorableness within the month, sucking in everything in their vicinity and creating a swirling vortex of candy floss scented kawaii none of us will be able to escape.
In one week, here’s what has happened in the Bun Bun Babies’ world:
– we’ve all doubled our birth weights
– we still can’t see or hear, but our senses of smell, taste and touch are all active and strong
– we now have ‘activated sleep’, where we twitch and jerk and sometimes make little yipping sounds. Active sleep increases the puppy’s respiratory strength, among other things.
– we nurse vigorously, and will happily knock our siblings out of the way to get to a really choice nipple
More photos, as always, over on Flickr. Oh, and still no babies from Delilah yet, but the clock is most definitely ticking.
