Is it okay to switch the positions of newborn puppies each time they finish doing something?

Reddit Animals

My sister's dog gave birth 2 days ago and we've been paying close attention to her puppies since. Each time one of them finishes feeding or sleeping, we would move them so that they wouldn't have to spend do much effort on it. What i mean by "moving" exactly is, for example, that one of them finishes sleeping, then me or my sister takes the puppy from the sleeping zone and moves the dog's belly so it can start feeding again.

New animal we could create

Reddit Animals

So I was thinking while working and talking to my coworker, we got on the conversation about scientists and crossbreeding animals. Like a snail and horse fly, but I brought up what I think could be a pretty crazy animal and would be a pain in the ass. If it was a real thing. Imagine taking a skunk and a porcupine and combining them to make an animal of stink, and shanks.

Reddit Animals

It simply does not fit the bill. Yes. they are venomous enough on their own to kills most predators. If they allowed natural selection to take place, they would have developed a more obvious form of mimicry - this would indeed be müllerian mimicry But that's obviously not what's going on.
