We took this photo of the puppies on Monday;
We took another picture of them today;
I'm always amazed with how quickly they grow! We have to bath them every morning and evening because there's no mama dog to clean up their poops. We have been using a gentle baby wash diluted, and this morning, I discovered that my puppies smell like human babies!!! You know, that lovely clean warm scent universally on every baby's head that just can't be bottled. Well, my puppies smell like that. Shocking, I know! I told my kids, and said they should sniff, and they thought I was pulling a fast one on them ('cause I've never done that before *grin*) and they were as pleasantly surprised as I was for that happy scent. We sometimes bundle the puppies like a burrito when they get fussy, which is when I discovered the baby-licious smell;
If I look tired, it's because I am. The night time feeds are really something, and the puppies took an hour to settle very early this morning. Fortunately, they are starting to sleep for longer periods as they are getting bigger and I hope I've only got another week or so of night feeds to go.
I leave you with a very contented puppy picture;
