The ears on some of the pups are starting
to move up -that is early and should hopefully mean that those pups
have ears that will end up smaller than Penny's. (Penny's ears are
usually referred to as either donkey ears or satellite dishes by
myself! For showing, they should be smaller. For anything else, it
doesn't matter!) This is Brown.

(Notice how the male dogs are absent generally, it is the bitches
taking an interest!)
30th of April, and we are fed up with being in the box so get out.
Soon it will be time to remove the giant pen so the pups can run
around all the time. Let's hope for some nice weather as well so they
can go outside for the first time.
1st of May 2015:
We are now using a proper puppy feeding bowl, but haven't QUITE got
the knack of how to eat nicely. Not to mention that whereas the last
litter of just 7 all fitted around this bowl, this lot of 12 don't. A
second bowl has been ordered and should arrive next week!
The wobble board has been brought out, and at first the pups aren't
quite sure how to use it!
The next day, 2nd of May, and we all stand nicely around the bowl to
eat! (This time, anyway!)
And then we decide to all sleep OUTSIDE the whelping box!
3rd of May, quick photoshoot with thanks to my daughter Melanie!
Pale Green bitch (who did not want to pose!)
4th of May:
We're getting the hang of balancing on the wobble board
And then we have a big adventure. It is FINALLY warm and dry enough to
go outside for the first time EVER!
Later the same day we have a great time playing with Mickey and Walnut
who are BIIIIIIG Papillon boys aged FOUR MONTHS!
Black found a good toy
