Rewinding a little and sticking with the weight gain for a moment longer though, I thought I'd share the vital statistics for the 6 little wrigglers over the past 6 days (we didn't weigh the pups on day 1 so as not to stress Leela out too much - weight is in grams):
|Day||Little (George)||Big Light||Med Light||Little Light (Rose)||Med Light Patches||Big Brown (Bella)|
Yet as this first week of the puppies lives comes to a close I hope that we are starting to find our feet a little more. That we are little more confident in knowing when and what help is needed by Leela and her babies. That as the puppies grow stronger that we can see their independence growing a little more each day. And that we can remember more often to appreciate how incredibly lucky we are to be having this experience. It may not be something we planned for and we often find ourselves worrying about the weeks ahead, finding them homes etc. etc. Yet as tails start to wag just a little and as we anticipate eyes and ears opening we will do our best to enjoy these moments as well.
