Mastering the Postal Weigh Scale and Weighing Newborn Puppies

Dah . . . I should know this, allow my eyes to tell me all was well and seeing five active behinds with tales wagging like a motor running, inform me that my newborn puppies were, well, content. It was the scale that was at the root of my concerns. First the scale alternates between ounces/pounds and the instructions make it seem as if you could just set the object on the scale and weigh. You can't. One has to prep the scale, set the perimeters (conversion) and do a least a few tests that will tell the intellect - (ok, so I am close). So, to make a long story short, Dec 6, 2010 at 6:00 PM,  the correct weights of Zack and Zoie's puppies are as follows:
Macky (first out and boy) 11.2 oz
Mizzy   (second out girl) 13.1 ---- she is a chunky dunk
Chewie aka Chewbaca (third out boy) 9.5
Lizzy (fourth out girl) 9.0
Aggie (fifth and run) 7.7

I think I need to stop being an excessively hyper attentive puppy grand MOM.
