Christmas is the pup in the bottom of the pic. The white patch on the back of her neck looks like a Christmas tree. She is one of the mid-tempered pups so far. She will allow herself to be held only after being full, but she will sleep in my arms. She can, however, make herself heard when she wants to.
Samantha has begun stepping out of the tub when the pups are asleep to get some much needed rest herself. Her weight is still good, and she is still being fed puppy food when she wants it (open feed), and she gets a wet food mix twice a day. She seems pretty proud of herself and her puppies, almost as proud as I am.
