The puppies did get their nails trimmed after this photo, so forgive the long nails. At this age, I can just prop them in my lap and trim using a human toenail clipper.

Before these guys were born, we had only had plated puppies and I wondered how and how soon the differences would develop. Now I know and have photographic evidence should anyone ask what to look for in the future!
