The last week all the puppies will be together! This week the puppies have been enjoying the garden, playing in the leaves! They are eating well and having four feeds a day. Tomorrow, they are off to the vet to be health checked and microchipped before going to their new families.
It has been a bit of a wet week for the puppies but they enjoy playing outside when they can. It is a constant cycle of feeding, playing and sleep, much like human babies!! Lily only gives them one feed a day, usually first thing in the morning. They have all had a play out on the grass with Cassie, Lily and Molly. It is quite hard to tell them all apart now when they are all together. When I take photos I try and remember who it was but when I look back I can't remember which puppy it was!!!!
The puppies are growing bigger every day. Today, they were able to play outside for the first time now their outside run has been created! Janet, who owns Archie (puppies dad) came to visit and to have a cuddle.
Mum doesn't feed them during the night now and the puppies all sleep together through the night, apart from the other night when Lily disturbed them and had me up at 04.30 --yawn!!!!! More photos in the gallery
The weaning process has begun and all the puppies are doing well and tuck in! Mum pops in for a quick feed but as they all have teeth now, she does't stay for very long. The puppies have all now met their new families. Their kennel names have been accepted by the kennel club and I now have their KC registration documents.
Yesterday, the afternoon was spent increasing their play area and they love the extra space, charging about and playing with each other!
