Here they are, Elsie's six pups, pictured together in one collage.
The pups appear in order of birth, and their birth dates and current weights appear below the picture (you can click on the picture to see it in its own window).
Top row, left to right:
Miss Lime, born 3/30, current weight: 1 lb 5 oz (up 7.5 ounces since birth)
Master Blue, born 3/30, current weight: 1 lb 6.5 oz (up 7.5 ounces since birth)
Master Red,born 3/30, current weight: 1 lb 5.5 oz (up 6.5 ounces since birth)
Bottom row, left to right:
Master Green, born 3/30, current weight: 1 lb 6 oz (up 7 ounces since birth)
Miss Pink, born 3/31, current weight: 1 lb 3 oz (up 5.5 ounces since birth)
Master Yellow, born 3/31, current weight: 1 lb 3.5 oz (up 6 ounces since birth)
All are suckling well, gaining weight as they should, becoming increasingly mobile, vocalizing appropriately, and doing what they should be doing at two-to-three-days old. And though the last two were born nearly a day after the first, they're all well within healthy weight ranges of each other (meaning they're all getting enough milk, and no one is being deprived).
So far so good. :)
Today's big excitement was getting their nails trimmed. Tomorrow will be a quiet day. Then on Monday morning they'll have their dew claws removed.
So there you have it: the gang is here and thriving! :)
'til next time,
