Taru's New Family

Managed to sneak the pups away from Taru for a few seconds to get a few shots, so here goes for under 24 hours old shots!
Bitch 1 white feet, big white tip to tail and big white triangle on chest, weighed in at birth at 350g, came out bum first, then found her way her a back teat for a sneaky suckle before after birth was delivered and she was cut free!

Bitch 2, similar markings, but no white tip, weighed in at 300g.

Then we had the only boy, he has a white foot on left paw a long flash of white down throat and tummy and was very notably tri marked on his face. The biggest of the four at 400g.

Taru delivered the four in 3.5 hours from start of first contraction to delivery of last pup. The final pup is another bitch, white tips on all feet, a long white flash from chin to belly button, and again a lot of cream developing on face already. She weighed 300g.
They are all strong and suckling well.
