Slightly bigger.

Photo of a 6-week old Irish Water Spaniel.

A few weeks later and the Irish Water Spaniel pups are getting bigger. Their eyes are open, they’re very mobile, and discernable individual personalities are starting to develop. Of course, given that there are six of them together with bladders proportional to their still-small body size, there is often a bit of a whiff — you can’t bath them too often because their skin and coats aren’t up to it.

But from a distance, especially by photo, very endearing.
