Two weeks old and as there are
so many pups, we try some solid food. No force or even
coaxing, all I did was put the plate in front of the pups.
All but Pink instantly started eating! They were definitely ready, and this
will particularly help the smaller pups and Penny.
One plate clearly wasn't
enough to fit around! But the bigger feed trays are too
tall for now.
Penny was more than happy to
help clear the mess after the first meal
One very full pup asleep after
By the next day Pink was
eating as well.
22nd of April and all the pups
now have their eyes open. I tried to get headshots but
some worked better than others. They don't keep very
still, and my daughter the photographer isn't able to
visit at the moment so I had to do the best I could with
my cheap camera.
Pale Green (bitch)
Purple (bitch) No she hasn't got extra ears, they
are on John's t-shirt......!
23rd of April 2015
24th of April
The box needs clean bedding and so this time we let the pups
experience the floor for the first time
Mickey says he didn't think dogs smaller than he existed as
he's never seen one before
The cats were interested
The pups aren't all that happy -the floor is cold compared
to their box with vetbed and under floor heating! (Also
known as a heated puppy pad!)
Pink decides to explore a bit
Fast asleep after the first adventure.
26th of April 2015 and two plates are most definitely needed
Full up after a big meal
With mum Penny, still 26th of April
Penny is being an excellent mum and has coped so well with
her family of 12
On the floor again
Yellow is about to open her mouth
27th of April. Almost 3 weeks old. The pups are gaining
weight fast now when they are eating so much.
