Mothers day tomorrow, thankfully I will be milking tomorrow morning, so will have to miss being force fed toast , coffee and orange juice in bed. As you might of guessed, I'm not a fan of eating in bed. My husband has found it hilarious watching me in the past on Mothers Day ( if I have not been able to wangle a mornings milking somewhere), sealed in bed by our six children sitting around me on the duvet, I'm not going anywhere until I've eat what they have proffered forward. lol.
Although it was raining hard here last night and into the early morning by midday it was bright and on the patio nice and warm to let the pups out and to introduce them to the new toys I have got them. In the video you will see them using for the first time the ramp we put down, so they can get in and out easily, watch out for Mr Confident aka Little Brian as he just swans out hardly checking his stride.
Little Brian's sty on his eye actually popped today, which I was glad to see and hopefully confirms its just a little infection from a scratch that was on his bottom eyelid, probably caused by one of his siblings. Now its burst I would hope to see it gone within a few days. Naturally any thing like this causes a bit of concern and now it has burst without any other spots occurring and Little Brian is bright hopefully it confirms it is what we thought it was, as the worry was that it might be a little growth or even worse a thing called head gland disease also known as puppy strangles which is a relatively rare and the cause is unknown. It can start with what seems like an innocent looking sty on the eye, so you can imagine that although I thought it was caused by an injury, this also has been in the back of my head and until its fully healed I suspect it will stay there.
I filmed most of the video we have tonight but then I let Molly have a go with the camera, so the ending is a bit like she was filming while on a rollercoaster ride. As usual with the children about in the video, its advisable to have the volume not to high. Enjoy !
