S-P Pups Day 7: The Fast Times Litter is 1 week old!

Hard to believe that the Fast Times pups (Parker, BISS GCH HiBourne's It's All About Me, BROM x Savi, CH Grayhart's Shear Genius, SH, NSD,NRD, CGC, V) are one week old!  They have changed so much in such a short period of time.  It is amazing how they develop and continue to make monumental changes in days and will continue over the next 7 weeks.  
The puppies eye will begin to open from day 9 to 12 and then their ears will open after that.
 These pups are great little eaters.  All of them latch on and nurse, kneading Savi with their front paws to stimulate the mammary glands.
 What goes in must come out and Savi keeps her pups immaculate.  She licks them to stimulate them to urinate and defecate as the young pups do not do this on their own.
We weight the pups daily and track their progress on a chart.  The pups should double their weight in the first week.
 Savi spends all her time in the box with the pups, either nursing, cleaning or just hanging out with her babies.
 Milk drunk!
