-- Week 1 --
October 14, 2008 - All puppies are nursing well. They are so cute.
October 16, 2008 - The puppies are getting lots of handling. Peppy is so concerned if anyone moves more than 3 feet away with a puppy so we're keeping close when loving on the pups.
October 18, 2008 - Peppy is still staying very close to puppies except for quick potty breaks.
Big brother (half bro) looks at pups. He says, "Tell me when they can go run and play or wrestle - then I'll be a lot more interested!"
