Meanwhile the pups just thrive and grow bigger and healthier on the solid food from Bibi, a little mother's milk from Princess, lots of attention from the humans and their twice a day romp on the lush lawn.
The pups know when it's 11am and 3.30pm; this is their play time on the lawn
As far as I can ascertain, these two times a day, are the only times when Princess allows the pups to suckle
See how we run, Mum? (Mvulana to the left of the photo)

It's amazing how, by four weeks, the pups began to show their characters. And even more amazing that the first pup to do anything "doggie-like" was the last -born. Bibi is the runt of the litter. A tiny, almost puny female but she is so confident and will try any new experience before her larger, stronger siblings. Mvulana, the second-to-last-born pup, looks like Bibi (and both look like Princess) and is the next in line when it comes to clever tricks and new games. Mvulana is one of the only two males.

The other pups all have their own little personalities, and I've posted photos of them doing the cutest things.
Nibbling mum's toes!
