Yesterday received an email asking about a girls and boys photo of Primrose's pups. At this age it's hard to do posed photos and I rarely do them at any age, as I find as with the children, the best photos come from real life, rather than posed life, so they aren't the best photos. As the pups grow and their eyes are fully open I will try to state in individual photos the sex of the pup.
Primrose's pups were two weeks old yesterday and Primrose is doing a grand job with them and doing it all in her stride.
The video shows the pups suckling and if you look back at footage of these pups first born you will see how much growth they have already made. They are all over double their birth weight and quickly heading towards three times their birth weight already. Cavaliers are very good mothers.
Jake is giving us lots of fun in his last days with us before leaving for Bedfordshire this coming Tuesday afternoon. The children introduced Jake to a wind up Brussel Sprout left over from the crackers given to them by one of their Grannies at Christmas. Unfortunately we did not catch him on video being very excited mixed with being a little worried by Wind Up Brussel Sprout. We did get one photo of them both at a stand off though. Lol
Jake still likes to have a play with mum and my husband caught this bit of footage of the two of them having a bit of rough and tumble.
Jake has been hanging out with the pack most of the day and is now sparko at my feet whilst I'm on the computer. I have had a none stop Sunday and with no school tomorrow for the children, I'm going to get the children to bed and hope to get to sit down with my husband and a scattering of canines and partake of a couple glasses of wine together, seeing as my last chance to have a couple glasses of wine, Primrose decided to go into labour, so that bottle has been on hold until now.
