A Rose By Any Other Name

A rose by any other name . . . PSYCH, no names for Omeeka's Bambinos yet - they are still the nameless "O" litter!
Although nameless, the "O"s continue to grow and are developing into the cutest puppies on the planet. As of this morning, all of the puppies, even little brown, are over two pounds. Mr. Dark Green, aka Whopper Junior, is heading toward three pounds. As you can see from the photos, their eyes have opened. Although, it doesn't seem like they actually see all that well!
All of the pups are up on all four legs and are showing signs of play behavior - biting on each other and waving their little paws at the faces of their siblings. It doesn't last long though; after just a few minutes of play, they fall over and konk out. So cute to watch. I have started to spend a few minutes a couple of times per day cradling each puppy. For the most part, they relax and enjoy our time together. They are such mellow little puppies, and have I mentioned - the cutest puppies on the planet . . .
As for their growth, last night their aggregate weight gain since birth was 212.7 ounces. That translates into over 13 pounds in two weeks, more than double their aggregate birth weight. Way to go Omeeka, mother's milk and maternal devotion = priceless!
