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
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

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.

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
