YUP .. she 'Got Milk' !!
At one month LIL takes her job of eating very seriously.

Waiting patiently for eye CERF exam at Cornell University Veterinary Hospital.
By seven weeks old who would blame mom for NOT letting those puppies nurse anymore.
By the time LiL'ER is eight weeks old it becomes obvious that she was born to pose.
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it. Vogue, vogue.
