It's Labour Day, which means Stew is home from work. He's having an extra long weekend seeing as he took Friday off as well.
He needed a break. Work is very stressful right now. He's not sleeping well, poor bugger.
So what does he do? Yesterday while he was out with the kids he bought me flowers! I asked him why?
And he said because he knew how hard I was working, looking after Coco and the pups. Awwww, he's the best hubby ever.
ABOVE: I think Dante would have drunk the whole glass given half a chance, he was loving it... between pulling sour faces! *smiles*
More of Dante: a little video I took last night of him and his Mum & Dad having fun in the bath :
ABOVE: See? Very cute.
ABOVE: The 'Weigh Station'. ha ha ha. No getting who's who muddled up now, that's for sure. I've got me trusty photos to refer to.
Last night every puppy had gained weight, with Ruby gaining the most (22 grams) and Flint gaining the least (6 grams). I knew he would have the smallest gain.
He's the puppy who seems to have trouble finding a nipple.
I shall 'help' him for a while.
After a very long night, where I got up to check on the pups on the hour, I'm off to have a few hours decent sleep, now that Stew is up.
It's a typical almost summer day... windy and threatening to rain. I'm not missing much then!
12.05 and I'm awake again. Don't know if having small sleeps over 24 hrs is a good idea. constantly waking up worrying about the pups, even though I know Stew is watching over them just as well as I can.
Coco seems less stressed out today, and the pups are all doing well.
They slither like little slugs... and OMGosh they can make a noise! It's when they are all crying that Coco gets distressed. Or when one strays from the 'pack'.
She doesn't like that at all. So she nudges it and pushes it with her nose to try and bring it back into the fold. So cute to watch.
Right, some more photos I think...
ABOVE: awww it's so cute when a puppy is on it's back like that. That is Jade on her back.
Lunchtime! Off to find food...
DOGSTARS: nope, I do nothing to them except crop, add text and borders. That's all. I don't change the quality or nothing.
ABOVE: another little video of Coco.
End of Day: well... it's been a long day. I started out bone tired, and I still am. This 'babysitting overnight' is taking it out of me.
AND I'm eating all sorts of crap too... anything and everything is going down me gob at the moment. Silly me.
