The puppies are 3 days old and have already had to have their nails trimmed. They weren't too keen on the idea and there was a lot of wriggling.

The puppies have had their nails trimmed again today. They were not impressed and showed their displeasure by peeing and pooing on me.

The girl with the stripey collar hasn't missed out, I've been supplementing with bottle feeds and it had been her turn. She was in no hurry to get to Annie as she already had a full tummy.

A couple of photos of the puppies on their own while Annie chills out on the living room floor. They've got full tummies so don't notice she's not there. Their eyes are open now and it's such a wonderful experience to hold up a puppy and see him or her looking back at you.

Watch this VIDEO especially near the end where the puppy on the far end flips over. In this VIDEO the pups look as though they've had one drink too many as they move around.

The puppies can be quite active and vocal at times, as you can see and hear in this first VIDEO. In this 2nd VIDEO the pups are having their first drink of milk from a bowl. They didn't need any encouragement.

I've had to increase the height of the opening after this girl escaped from the whelping box twice.

Their first solid food, kibble soaked in hot water and made into a pulp, with a splash of goats milk added.
Full tummies and empty bowls.

You wouldn't think that would be comfortable but pups from every litter have seemed to prefer sleeping like that.
A crate full of puppies. I put them in here while I cleaned out the whelping box after they'd had some bowls of goats milk. They seem to be wearing almost as much as they drank. It's time for the bigger crate, this one's getting a little too snug.

The puppies have really taken to feeding from a bowl, as you can see in this VIDEO
