12 puppies, 10 nipples. You do the math. Gayle at Avidog once described neonate puppies as heat and milk-seeking missiles. Boy, was she not kidding. It really is a war in there. The smaller guys get latched on and then one of the other pups comes through underneath and knocks them all off. We help the littler ones out a bit by putting them back in the box first after a nail trim/box cleaning so they have some alone time with the milk faucet.
Pups continue to do well. We all survived their second nail trim. Everyone had their collars replaced. A few of them are trying to get their legs underneath them as they scoot along. And I got the first whiff of puppy breath!
Tonight's scent was lemon. It was supposed to be a game bird but it was a G and T kind of day and the lemon was to hand.
