Pups look great. Poor mom’s a mess.

Just what I was thinking! Mary, is it common for foxes to have a litter of four?

To me, she has that look of haggard, run-down bliss common to mothers of young children, often interspersed with outbreaks of total frustration and irritation.

That’s just what I was thinking, but I like your choice of descriptors: “haggard, run-down bliss” – such a familiar condition! Just look at that sweet nose-to-nose moment, in the midst of it all! I forwarded this to several mothers I love. Thanks!

A mother is a mother and adapts to all the happenings of her offspring and tries to handle it all whatever and whenever, as becoming a mother changes you forever, in your heart and in your soul.
