8387-T-375 , 10:34P , 12/31/2012 , Monday , Day 1 .. First three puppies , Puppies are still wet . At first I thought the Chocolate was a Black as the remnants of being born give the puppies a much darker look but then I saw its Chocolate nose . Day 1 is zero days old, they will not be one day old until Day 2 - confusing but think about it. I plan to weigh the puppies at 1 week which will be day 8 and then weekly. 8388-T-375 , Tuesday , Day 2 , New Years Day , 1-1-13, 4:12 AM , 2nd picture , even though it is Day 2 they are only hours or minutes old as the last was born 67 minutes before this picture was taken at 3:05 AM .

8397-375 , 1/3/13 , Thursday, Day 4 .. The Runt, a Chocolate Male, is propped up between two shoes to keep him from falling off the nipple. He was very weak on day four from not enough milk but perked up after this picture due to getting a belly full of milk. . 8400-375 , 1/3/13 , Thursday, Day 4 .. Later in the day the Chocolate could latch and hold on to the nipple very good.

In the puppy pile the Chocolate Male is on top near MaMa's nose then the five Female Yellows. 8401-T-375 , 1/3/13 , Thursday, Day 4 .. Close up of picture to the left. MaMa has her Left fore arm curled around and hugging the Black Female. You can hardly see the Black Female - wish it was one of the Blondes so it would show up better.

8608-375 1/18/13 Friday, Day 19 .. One of the Blond Females. One of the two pink nosed ones and may be the biggest. 8638-375 1/18/13 Friday, Day 19 .. Chocolate Male. I have gone back to putting him on the nipple by himself to insure he gets his fair share of milk. He is very small at this time.

Discovered there are two pink nosed YFs in this group while weighing, I have been too busy to notice and showed up this morning during the weighing when I decided to show the Pink nose weigh separate. Strange but as well as I remember all Pink nosed Females seem to be the heaviest. The boys usually will not overtake them until they mature.

The Chocolate male is starting to gain some ground in the weight department. At Three weeks he weighed 40% of the heavest puppy and 52% of the average weight. Now he weighs 56% of the heaviest and 69% of the average, he is very active.
