I get to sleep with little puppies again

We've had a good break, but are back to raising little puppies again. Ellie had her litter on Monday.
I'm staying in the room with these. Birdy will have hers anytime now, and Pam will sleep in the room with them. They don't like to be close to the others with a new litter, so we separate them in different ends of the house.

I always worry that I won't wake up when one needs attention, but all the calls are still very familiar, and after the first night, the non-alert calls don't wake me up any more.

The non-alert calls:

"This one is drying up..."
"Don't dare try to push me off."
"Can't find the heating pad while Mom is cooling out on the floor out of the box" I get up and offer help if this one lasts more than 30 seconds. They usually find the pile on the heating pad.

The alert calls are:

"I'm on the wrong side of Mom!" Mom won't always stop nursing the rest if one has gotten out of position.

A few other possiblilties, but the distress call is always the same.

After the first few days, there is little discussion, other than the first two listed complaints.

None of these are available, but I thought you'd enjoy a picture. The clear Red with the dark feathers is more mobile than any day old puppy I ever remember.

Ellie looks quite pleased with herself and she should be! I still have a hard time imagining that that little Momma dog carried that herd of puppies. How different and beautiful they are!

Adorable!!! <3 I love the black one with the line across the back end, though I know that marking is likely to all but disappear.

I am assuming Redman is daddy to this group?

How uplifting to see healthy new life right now!!!

Yes, Red is the Sire, and also the Sire of Birdy's upcoming litter. He's never thrown anything but drop dead gorgeous puppies. The two Reds are clear reds. Ellie can't produce Sable. The white one is already showing signs of red spots coming. The one that looks all Black has white on the chest.

They're all steadily gaining weight, and are very strong. They didn't wake me up at all, last night.
