The fur is flying!
When puppies are about 6 to 8 weeks old their moms start to lose their fur, and I don't mean just a little, but big clumps of fur come out until they look like a short coated breed! Priscilla is just starting this and you can see some clumps of fur coming off her. There is a little tuft right by her foot. This is normal and a response to having the puppies, but the moms do look quite unsightly for a while! So next time mom Priscilla is in a photo she might not have so much fur!
