3-1/2 Weeks Old

Well I hadn't planned on taking more pictures but photo oportunities come along and this one was not to be missed. Our friend, Dale Nakashima, has a singleton Springer Spanial male (nicknamed Ernie) born on the same day as Cricket's pup, and it was time to get those two together for the first time at 3-1/2 weeks old.

It was very interesting to see Cricket happily willing to nurse this strange-looking puppy. Dale was laughing at the sight, imagining what the puppy must be thinking while suckling on this strange-looking and strange-tasting mom. "Hmm, this doesn't taste quite right, <smacking lips> Butterscotch??"
