Week 1 Photos

The puppies are doing well, eating, sleeping, getting cleaned by Mom, navigating across the whelping box like little salamanders, sleeping, and eating some more.  The bigger ones can sort of lift their tummies off the ground and move faster.

Truffle had an upset tummy for a few days.  Thankfully that is past now.  She only ate one placenta, so we don't know if that caused it or something else.  But now she's back to normal.  It's hard to get her to stay away from the puppies for more than about 3 minutes -- out to pee, check around the deck for toads, and back to the door to come in.  She will frequently lie outside of the whelping box, ready to step in if there is any activity.

These pictures are Day 6, so not a full week, but this is when I have time.  The puppies don't really like photo sessions, and mommy is good about it but she's happier when I put them back.  So I take what I get, I don't want to spend a long time on it.

I think the darker puppies (2 and 3, maybe also 4) will have coloring similar to Truffle -- sable and goldish-reddish-tan, with white markings.  1 and 5 are lighter,  I'm not sure what they will look like.  Knox Rhine is betting fawn with black.
