puppy duties

There is a lot of laundry in our daily routine these days - lots and lots of towels to wash and hang out. Lucky for me, dogs don't have to do this chore.

I also don't have to worry with trying to clip 180 toenails each week - but I'm sure glad that Kay does it. Saves on painful scratches. It has to be done when they are sound asleep, otherwise it's impossible to hold them still!

And then there are the daily cuddles - we have called in help for this task too - here is Megan sharing puppy cuddling duty.

The pups are still getting a bottle as a top-up a couple of times per day. They think it's great.

Here is Marieke helping out with the feeds.

They are growing up fast. They can all get up on their legs and stagger about the box now. Next big event will be opening their eyes, that should be soon!


  1. The purple ribbon puppy is my favorite. Send her to me please. I've made that adorable picture of her sleeping the screensaver on my phone. I go "aww" everytime I click on my phone :) Cute cute. We are all enjoying the photos here at the Murphey house! Keep them coming :)

  2. What a fat, happy, healthy pack!! We would like to have them all. PLEEZE!!
