Phoenix on day 60. Got milk?

Age: 2 hours
Phoenix gave birth to three beautiful, healthy puppies last night, two boys and a girl.
The girl is on the right. So far, she's the biggest and the noisiest.
Phoenix is still a little groggy but doing just fine.

Phoenix is proving to a natural when it comes to motherhood.
The puppies are nice and healthy. Their birth weights were 7.5, 8 and 9 ounces.

A short video clip (124K) of one of the puppies nursing.
You will need QuickTime to view the clip.

That's one chubby little boy!

The puppies are one week old today, and they're already doubled in weight.
Big boy: 20 ounces
Girl: 16 ounces
Little boy: 16 ounces

Day 11: All eyes are open. Now we can see what we're eating!

Good morning!

I'm the cutest...

No, I'M the cutest...

No, dangit, I'M the cutest!

Doing what puppies do best.

As the puppies reach 3 -1/2 weeks old, they are beginning to sit up and walk around.
Jaxon - the smallest birth-weight puppy seems to be the first to really be best at getting around the pen.
He weighs 2-3/4 pounds - the others are a chubby 3 pounds! Everyone is healthy and developing nicely.

Dexter's ears are sometimes up, sometimes down, sometimes halfway in between.
Maxx's and Roxie's ears are occasionally up, too.

Maxx says, "FEEEEED MEEEE!"
