Stella and Topper's Top Ten

Stella was clearly giving birth to a big litter...or a litter of hippos...judging from the size of her tummy which spilled out on both sides of her! There are now ten little dark chocolate reasons for that big Stelly-belly!

Stella and her generous pre-whelping girth

Stella let us know not to make other plans for the afternoon! 

Even after the first two pups the Stelly-Belly was still full!

Atta Girl! Five Boys and Five Girls!

The pups are so dark that it is hard to photograph them well in low light--hence the flash glare. (When their eyes open at about 14-16 days, we will not use flash anymore.)

The pups's eyes and their ears are sealed,...

...but they have a keen sense of smell and can feel the vibrations of Mama Stella jumping into their box for a feeding

This pup is sucking vigorously on his sister's ear...I hope nothing is coming out!

Beautiful heads on these guys!

Someone is eating well!

We need to make certain that Stella never goes hungry, so, on top of her meals of fresh frozen raw, she has a self-serve bar of kibble with probiotics
