Because we have the whelping box in the kitchen rather than the little puppy house Primrose's pups will be starting off in the little kennel in the kitchen and as they approach their first day in the kennel in the kitchen Primrose and her six charges are well. Looking at them not even yet a day old and it's hard to imagine how they all came from Primrose.
I have got in touch with every one and thanks for every one being prompt to reply and I will be back in touch soon, except one person that I'm getting the emails returned and it must be they have changed their email address, as I'm sending to the email address they emailed to me, so if Lee Smelt is looking at this tonight and you are still interested in a puppy from Poundlane or not could you please contact me by the end of this week by 16th May, either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 01769 560969.
The camera is now stationed on the table beside the whelping box, so it's easy to hand to catch photos of the very fast growth that pups under go in the first weeks of their lives.
Smudge's four pups still with us, are now 11 weeks old. Mollie will be the next to leave us and tomorrow Mollie's family will visit as they are down here on holiday for the week and after her second vaccination this coming Saturday, she will leave with them on the Sunday as they travel home to Wales. Mollie is a very loving girl and reminds me so much of her Granny, Millie at that age in her demeanor. When they visit Mollie tomorrow they will see Primrose's pups and when you have two litters on the place at the same time one being newborn and the other at 11 weeks old you can then really see the growth they have made and that has now given me an idea for a photo for the next blog.
I did promise some video footage of the four on the blog today and I managed to find five minutes to film them in action or not as the video will show and as I type this in the evening they are now playing like mad in the back ground, charging in and out of their pen onto the patio.
All the rest of the pack have not really took much notice other than having a quick peek in over the side of the whelping pen. Primrose does not seem worried by there passing interest and when she has gone out for ablutions there has been interest in her and much sniffing of her.
Dolly is doing well after her dental on Thursday having had a couple extractions, you would not know she had any thing done and she now has nice white teeth again. Jessica is also going on very well after her leg amputation and everyone keeps asking me if I'm going to breed from her ? The question is should not be, am I going to bred from her ?, it should be, should I breed from her? Losing a leg does not effect her ability to conceive, but it does make her life harder, so the answer is "No" we won't be breeding from her. Although she is coping well after losing her leg, it's going to be harder for her in the long run, so I don't think she needs the burden of breeding on top of that and I don't think she is that worried about it, she will be booked in to be spayed in due course.
