Smudge's Cavapoo pups are now 24 days old and the video tonight is of one of the boys getting a bit of individual mother love. Our daughter Molly was a bit enthusiastic with her back ground music, but did stop when asked, and then you will hear her brother telling her to get out of my way, which she also does, but can't resist getting her foot in the footage.
Some more photos of the pups taken today. Smudge is tending her pups with ease and is amazingly relaxed about the other dogs looking in on them or even going in with them. Primrose is off heat and loves all the pups, and now back indoors fulltime can be found most times when asleep beside the puppy pen. She went in yesterday with Smudge to sniff the pups and Smudge was unperturbed by her presence in with her pups. Primrose got to get her puppy fix of sniffing Smudge's pups and cleaning a couple of their bottoms. Its lovely to see such trusting pack ties in our dogs.
Over the last couple weeks we have had five bitches on heat and only one, Primrose we wished to mate with Reggie. We just now have Jessica and Treacle to come off heat in the next few days and amazingly through all the hormones about, Henry and Toby are still the best of friends and the photo below could be titled, 'Two heads are better than one.'
“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.”
