Little Chunky Monkeys

Today I thought I would post a picture of all of them in the box together.  As you can see they are getting quite big.  I cannot believe how big they are getting.  At this point the largest puppy is White boy weighing in at 2 lbs 6.2 oz and Blue boy is right behind him at 2 lbs 5.4 ounces.  All of the puppies weighed in over 2 pounds last night except for little purple girl, but she is gaining ground and weighed in at 1 pound 10.5 ounces and if you think about it that is how much White Boy weighed when he was born.

As I bottle feed them and cuddle with them, they are really getting to know my scent and are just frantic to have me feed them.  As this is my first litter I don't have much to go on but I do believe these puppies are going to have some good BONE.  For those of you that are new to the breed this is referring to the substance of the dog.  Some Bernese have more Bone and have larger looking legs than others and it looks to me like these pups are going to have some serious substance.  The pigment is starting to be more noticeable on their little noses and it looks like they have little freckles.  This is not the case, it is just mother nature filling in the blank spots, quite fun to see the progression.  I have to laugh because lime boy actually looks like he has a mustache right now.

I have a good friend coming to the house today to let me take a serious nap.  Darla is very excited to spend time with the pups and I cannot wait to see what she has to say.  I am hoping that I can actually take a serious nap and have decided the best place for me to do that is out in the Motor Home where I won't hear any distractions.  Enjoy your day everyone
