Asalet Aslan

Here is Aslan surrounded by some of his siblings. He is now just short of 3lbs and you definately need two hands to hold him.
Watching these puppies this week has been better than watching TV.
With puppies it is the survival of the fittest. I hadn't realised until recently that the teats at the bottom end of the bitch contain the richest milk and I have been making sure that I put the two smaller ones down that end for feeding but Aslan has different ideas he either just climbs over the rest of the litter to get down there or alternatively he just starts at the top and empties each teat until he works his way to the bottom. You can see why he has been give the nickname "Tonka" as in Truck.
