Elsie Cleaning a Newborn (#7)

Here's brief footage of Elsie cleaning up pup #7 (warning, the video might be a little icky sticky for some, though I think it's beautiful).

It's amazing to me how "rough" Elsie is. But by this time she really knows what she's doing. Her licking stimulates the puppy to breathe and gets the pups circulation going. And she's really a lot more gentle than it appears.

I was a little worried about this pup when she arrived because she was quieter than the rest and a little slow to get started (made no noise at all to start, unlike her sibs). But Elsie knew exactly what to do.

And pup #7 is thriving now. So, enjoy!
