Day 25 is really a continuation of day 24. Solid food caused everyone to poop a lot more. Koyuk went on strike in the clean-up department. The hungry pups were screaming all night and Koyuk was crying. She was upset with the unclean whelping box. She laid down just outside and refused to go in until I got up and covered up any visible poo. The night's total: 4 loads of whelping box laundry, less than 2 hours sleep. She made sure I was there every time a pup pooped.
The puppies were so cute this morning snuggling on their many layered soft bed.
