Day 2

Mom and pups are doing great.  The small pups are nursing well and gaining weight.  The pups' umbilical cords have fallen off already and their little tails are starting to wag when they nurse.  Last night, I applied paint dabs on their rumps for identification since they are already outgrowing their hairband collars - stocky Lab necks.  One of the times I checked on them last night, I found all the pups spread out in the pool which means they were a bit too warm, so I dropped the temp in the house a couple of degrees.
