Dolly's Cavapoo pups are now 12 days old and you can see their eyes are starting to begin to open. All is going well and tonight some photo's and a video of them.
Started taking this video as the two pups at the beginning of it where suckling in their sleep but by the time I got the camera rolling they had nearly stopped, so I then just scanned around the whelping box. The tapping noise you will hear is Dolly lying just outside the box wagging her tail against it, and you will also hear the dolcet tones of our youngest daughter calling for me.
A couple nice captures of Henry settling in and havung a snuggle up with Smudge, who is very attentive as she is watching my husband eating his supper.
Ysobel is now around 21 days pregnant and this morning when I went to let them out, Ysobel was lying very relaxed and as I manipulated her stomach area, I am pretty sure I could feel she was pregnant. At this stage you will feel like a string of beads in the uterus and if inexperienced this is best done by a vet and then ask them to show you how to feel for this. Before scanning, is how a vet would at this stage diagnose pregnancy and get a rough idea how many pups by trying to feel how many beads could be felt. We will scan Ysobel hopefully next Wednesday and will book in with vets tomorrow and I will get on with contacting people on my waiting list about this litter.
Lastly tonight, as I have forgotten to do this the last couple times I have blogged, is to say "Thank you," and that's for all the kind messages on here and in my mail box since Dolly whelped. Its always nice to here from you all and to know that as time passes after having a pup from Poundlane, you still pop back to see what we are up to.
Lets get now, before my internet connection goes yet again, it took three attempts to get the video on here tonight. There's now also a blue cloud over the Taw Valley. Lol
