But first, more about what the pups are doing.
Esther has also started playing with her toy. It is a stuffed animal that is bigger than she is. Originally, I thought she might cuddle up to it when her mommy was gone. She never did. But yesterday, for the first time, I saw her chewing on it and moving it from one spot to another. Also, it is her MOM who is scattering the food around the bowl, perhaps encouraging her to partake?
The 9 have been stymied. I always say the trick is to be smarter than the dog. Ha! They have met their match! The last few days the water bowl has been empty ALL the time. Not because they are drinking the water, but because they are playing in it and tipping it over. So I switched the fairly light weight METAL bowl for a much heavier ceramic one. Mission accomplished.

Coat colors
Several people have asked what color these pups are going to be all grown up and I can't give a definite answer. That is not my department. How much the pups lighten and how long it takes is up to genetics which is Mama Nature's department. Below are pictures taken this afternoon that show coats of the darker pups TODAY.
Starting with one of the "reds"

Now some of the darker ones
Note: these are not ALL the darker pups. Several of the pictures are of the same pup. I just wanted to give you an idea of what the undercoats are looking like.
