They sound like they all have tapeworms! Be sure you treat them all and make sure whatever wormer you buy(if you decide to do it yourself) is one that specifically says it will kill tapeworm because many do not! Also, tapeworm is caused by ingesting fleas, so you need to get rid of them too!
BTW..........tapeworms are catchy to humans too!
Be careful treating the 8 week old puppy as she is too young for flea meds......I'd probably give her a bath and let the shampoo drown the fleas then comb thru her coat with a flea comb.......... search the internet on ways to de-flea a very young puppy!
