Puppy Intros Numero Dos

Here are three more of our nine beautiful puppies, who apparently believe that 1:40am and 3:20am are perfect times for nursing and honing their opera skillz.

Twin Boy is named such because Reid and I could not find any identifiers that distinguished him from another puppy, except that one is a boy and one is a girl (hence twin boy and twin girl, even though they are not, by definition, twins). Twin boy was the second pup born, at 8:40pm, and has made huge strides in weight (he started out at 8oz and last night was up to 12!). I have to admit that the twins tend to get lost in the mass of puppies, but when you look at them individually, they're awful cute!

Twin girl was the second to last to be born (that would be eighth for all of you out there who are having difficulty with your math) at 12:04am. She is also gaining well, starting at 9oz and now up to 12.

(Twin Girl from above... I know what you're thinking... they don't look THAT much alike... but believe me. By the time we got to black puppy eight and black puppy nine, gender was the easiest identifier)

And finally for this group, there is Kink. Kink was born fifth at 10:28pm, with the end of her tail broken. It actually folds back completely on itself. I wasn't able to get a picture of it (squirming puppies) so you'll have to believe me on this one. However, the vet said that it's not that big of a deal and not to worry about it. It certainly doesn't appear to be slowing her down, as she has gained an ounce a day since birth (from 8 to 10).

(Just one picture of Kink... her above picture is blurry and non-descript... but her face is pretty darn cute!)

Stay tuned (probably later today while I'm avoiding more housework) for the third and final round of puppy introductions.
