The Space Litter is doing great. They are growing leaps and bounds, including Ms Dark Pink, who is growing but just not as fast as her big brothers and sisters.
Chime is still up at night, but we are starting to get a little sleep during the night. The little Spacelings grunt and squirm all night, but I only have to get up occasionally when they squeal in frustration from getting somewhere where they can't figure out how to get back to their momma.
Chime has started letting Kerri into the whelping box now. Diamond almost gets in there too. Kerri has almost got brave enough to lick the puppies clean, but not quite. She wants to so bad, so it shouldn't be long now and she'll be playing second momma. She does love the puppies.
