Our amazing Bibi had four simply adorable--and hefty!--little Choco-babies on Friday, May 4th. This is Bibi's first litter and, while she has studied the behaviors of her housemate Lola, she was understandably a little confused at the outset. But her unerring instincts set her on the right path very quickly and she is a wonderful Mom!
|A multi-tasker after our own heart, Bibi takes good care of cleaning her babies at each meal|
|The pups are good eaters and already quite a bit bigger than their half-siblings ("The Browns") were at the same age!|
|Bibi is remarkable for her intense eye-contact and human focus...|
|...even when she is multi-tasking.|
|The puppies weigh over a pound each at only 5 days of age!|
|It was pointed out to me that these puppies were born on 5/4/2012, otherwise known as "Star Wars Day".|
|"Princess Leia" and "Queen Amidala" were no-brainers for girls' names...|
|...but there are so many good choices for the boys: |
Ewok? Chewbacca? Luke? Anakin...?
|"Jabba the Hutt?"|
|May the Fourth Be With You!|
