24 hours later, everyone is doing great and thriving. The puppies have all put on weight. Anneli is being a great mom.

Only 24 hours old and at the bar already! Well, the milk bar, that is!

Best way to feed is on your back.

Puppies are constantly moving and twitching while they sleep. These photos were taken just seconds apart.

At 9 days, the puppies eyes are showing as tiny slits, so it won't be long before they are open. They are gaining weight every day; the "fattest" ones weigh 2 lbs 3 oz! They are also lifting themselves up on their little legs and trying to walk! It's amazing!

Let me tell you a secret!
