We've been identifying the pups by spots of white on their chests. Each pup had a different shaped spot, or in the case of the girls, one had no spot.
As anticipated, the white spots are starting to disappear as the pups change their coats. Pat, Rich and I didn't want to put colored collars on the pups, so we opted to put a spot of non-toxic paint on the bottoms.
Guess I can say I truly paint dogs now!
The palette is:
The two boys are green and blue.
The girls are yellow, red, orange and white.
