And how about a weigh-in while we're at it. Here's the litter in descending order by weight...
- First we have Cocoa coming in at a whopping 812 grams...that's a gain of 179% since his birth weight of 453g. Cocoa was the heaviest pup born, and has kept his place at the top.
- A close second is Garbanzo - another tanker weighing in at 800 grams. Garbanzo is up 177% from his birth weight of 450g...he overtook Cocoa for the lead briefly yesterday, but fell short today.
- Adzuki comes in third weighing 749 grams - not bad for the 390g puppy that we thought we lost during delivery. We're very proud of this growing boy, who's gained 192%!
- Close behind is Pali II weighing in at 744 grams. Pali II is up 193% over his 385g birth weight.
- Kidney is the largest girl at the moment, weighing 728 grams. She’s gained 189% and was born weighing the same as her brother Pali II – 385g.
- Lima just lost the lead of female heavyweights…she’s right behind Kidney at 727g. Lima’s been the heaviest girl for a while, and was one of the larger puppies born, regardless of gender (415g), but her growth rate hasn’t been as aggressive and she’s only gained 175%.
- The remaining girl, Jelly, is right behind her sisters, weighing 710 grams. Jelly is a grower…up 189% since weighing 375g at birth.
- Little Soy is keeping it small at 656 grams. He was the second smallest puppy born (only 333g), but he’s strong and gaining – up 197%!
- Lastly we have little Lentil holding onto his tiniest-title. This little shrimp weighs only 529 grams, but not to worry…Lentil is up a whopping 200% from his paltry birth weight of only 265g! Way to go Lentil!
