Bitches and Puppies

About a year ago, our old dog (7+ years), Keana, gave birth to two puppies.  Unfortunately, the other died and only one female was left.  Being the only puppy, she became very protective and caring of her only puppy.  With only one puppy to care for, she fed her too often (causing the puppy to be chubby) and goes by the puppy’s side whenever the puppy makes any sound.   My mother and niece named the puppy, Chichi or Chichay.  She grew up fast and tall (taller than her mother).

Just a few months ago, the puppy (who is already grown) now gave birth to 5 puppies.  Probably because of her young age and having 5 puppies, she is not as caring and protective of her puppies as her mother.  In fact, sometimes, the grandma puppy would take care of two of the puppies while Keana takes care of three puppies.
