My brother's dog had puppies a few weeks ago. Life has been very demanding as a mother for Bella. Longingly looking out the door like she just wants a break from being a milk tanker as the puppies swamp her. She kept on the move so the puppies couldn't latch on for long, even dragging them along the floor a bit until they couldn't hold on anymore. I suppose all mothers feel like this at times. At least we don't usually have seven at once.
