Ysobel has yet again been caught in the act of suckling Smudge's pups. I only have to turn my back and she's made herself at home with them.
Tonight a photo shows her, as I caught her with two pups attached and Ysobel the old girl has started to drop down milk. I wondered if she had, as the pups looked very content on her and on removing her, I just checked her teats and with a gentle squeeze milk is forth coming.
We have decided on one of the girls we will keep and that is the one with a smudge on its face, much like Mum and we are calling her for now Blottie. Think I know the second girl we will keep, but just want to see them moving around a bit more.
The photos are the pups yesterday and today at 32 and 33 days old.
“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.”
