April 25, 2015 – Day 13 for the Three Amigos.
Eyes still not open but all have more than doubled in size.
‘Two Stripe’ (female) got a gold star today for being first to stand on all four feet! (sorry the photo is blurry)
‘One Stripe’ and ‘Two Stripe’ keep busy nursing.
Here’s ‘No Stripe’, he was the last born and is more white all over than the others.

April 12, 2015 – Hattie gave birth to three wonderful pups.
Everything went well for this first time Mom. She seemed to have an easy delivery and as her instincts kicked in she did a fine job of tending to all the details as each pup was born. They all got busy vigorously nursing right away.
All three pups are a chocolate and white parti color. We gave them temporary names by the number of stripes on their tails. Easy to tell them apart. See photo – We’re calling the first-born male ‘One Stripe’. He weighed in at 6 5/8 oz. The second born was a female we will call ‘Two Stripe’ weighing 6 3/4 oz. and the last one, a male we’re calling ‘No Stripe’ weighed 5 7/8 oz.
The Tiny Three Amigos five days old.
You can see Two Stripe and One Stripe in the photo on the left.
