Molly's Babies

Molly's babies are 11 days old today.  In the next few days we should start to see hints of eyes opening.  I can't wait to start seeing who these little guys are going to become. 

It's all a bit blurry at the moment but I suppose that is what happens when you are supplementing a little girlie every two hours around the clock. 

Thankfully my amazing other half has been on vacation.  I'm not sure if this is how he planned on spending his vacation or not, but he has certainly been incredible with our little girlie.  In fact, the night he fed her entirely and let me sleep she had her biggest weight gain! 

Our three fat boys are continuing to be well.. fat!  They are little piggies. 

Our little guy with the teeeny white strip on his nose is fondly referred to as "Chunk".  He is a no nonsense kind of guy when it comes to food.

The next two largest may as well be twins.  If I don't look at their chest (one has tiny pin prick of white and the other a narrow S marking)its very hard to tell them apart. They have very similar head shapes and weigh exactly the same. 

My little guy is thriving too.  He was the smallest of the litter weighing in at 4oz.  He has doubled his weight and definitely doesn't let his fat brothers push him around.  We're keeping a watchful eye to make sure that he gets enough to eat and continues to gain weight. 

I did finally manage to take some pictures yesterday. 

Mylee and Molly testing the lighting.  After some trial and error, our bathroom ended up being the best place to take pictures of these little guys.

And last but not least.. our little girlie, who today is weighing in at a whopping 5.8oz.  Strong and as feisty as ever.

  1. Awwww they are so cute. I love the "no pictures" ones. Soon they'll be running around and chubby little playful puppies and we can't wait to see some gorgeous fun photos from them all.

  2. Amazing! Mom looks so calm, I take it it's not her first litter? I bet you'll really have fun getting to know them.

  3. Molly is being an excellent mother. She seems to really enjoy her babies so far. This is her first litter. She turned 3 the beginning of June.
