All the pups have pretty much tripled in size, and seeing as they will be 3 weeks old tomorrow, that seems appropriate. They almost fill up the whelping box now making it harder for B'Nellie to find a place to lay down to feed them all. As you will see in the video, she will start feeding them standing up. This helps her and helps the pups get stronger and learn to balance.
Sparty has figured out how to play me and get held. Last night while all the other were sleeping he just kept whining and walking around, so of course I pick him up. He nuzzles into my neck and totally relaxes. I suspect he'll be the first escapee from the box next week. He sits and rests his head on the pig rails.
The box is filling up:

Elsie tries to find a comfy place to snuggle:
She settles on top of Lola:
Have a great weekend!!
