Thought I better get some photo's up of Millie & her Cavapoo pups who are now just over a week old as they are growing so fast. It was a busy end to last week with my youngest & oldest child having their birthdays a day apart & at the weekend we took advantage of the weather with a walk along the Taw River & a picnic. Last night I went to blog then got bogged down in a mammoth email & then realised it was very late & with an early start this morning waited until now to catch up.
Millie's pups at this stage are growing so quickly & in a few days time we should start to see their eyes opening.
Smudge is booked in on Thursday morning for her 28 day scan & I am pretty confident she is in pups as a distinct string of beads can be felt in her uterus area. From around 21 to 35 days a bead like string can be felt in a pregnant bitch & then the spaces between the beads which are the pups fills & then feels like one solid mass anytime from 28 days onward. It takes experience to feel this & you should not palpatate a bitches uterus unless you know what you are doing because to heavy handed you could cause damage & for the bitch to abort.
So scanning Smudge will be for me to know roughly how many pups she is carrying to aid me in feeding her & preparation & actions taken when she goes into labour.
Lastly Jessica's DNA results have arrived & she is normal for Curly Coat, Dry Eye & Eposodic falling.
