Another hectic week with my Mum being admitted to hospital again Monday evening. She came home yesterday & seems brighter in herself today.
Running around & the pups now being full on, time is at a premium.
Dolly's litter is now 5 weeks old tomorrow & are into everything. They even had a 5 minute excursion onto the patio in a dry moment which they enjoyed. This time of year though you must be careful not to get them chilled. Our patio is well sheltered & enclosed so ideal for pups to make their first explorations into the outdoor world.
Ysabel's litter are 5 days behind Dolly's but are quickly catching up. They are just getting into exploring beyond their crate & today have been interacting & playing with Dolly's pups.
Both litters now react to your voice & are happy to be handled & picked up. They are becoming a big distraction in our home & great timewaster.
We have busy weekend ahead with 4 pups meeting the families who they will be joining in the future.

Ysabel's Cavapoo pups
Lucy is now over 8 weeks pregnant & with 9 weeks as the average gestation period for a dog & 4 or 5 days either way they can give birth Lucy is now in the 24 hour watch zone.
She has been very uncomfortable today & has gone of her food & has been busy digging making a nest for the new arrivals.. Her temperature is dropping so not to many days to go.
Lastly Smudge. Our dogs do like leather shoes to chew & a couple months ago my husband David forgot this & left his dealer boots over night on the floor of the utility. Smudge adopted the boots & as you can see in the photo she is very fond of one of them.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
