Henry our Brittany spaniel is the father of Smudge's litter. Yesterday I was on the computer and he was sat below me with his head perched on the bottom of the chair. Our oldest child Bert saw an opportunity for a photo. The first was good, but then Henry heard a noise and the second photo really shows off Henry's handsome side profile. He really is as lovely as he looks.
The next photo is another by Bert and is me nursing Mushroom, who likes a bit of nursing. I should leave him be, because I can't keep another boy but he is like a Mushroom magnet of mushy love. He really is such a lovely cuddly pup. Totally lets go of himself when you nurse him. Now you know what I waste my time doing. Mushroom amazingly is still available from the litter.
As you might guess from the photo I really enjoyed nursing our children. Before I had babies I really thought I would have no maternal instinct as I was considered a tom boy, but someone I worked for on telling them about worrying about maternal instinct when pregnant told me, "Don't worry. You just have to watch you with animals to see that you are going to be okay."
The video below was taken by my husband and captures the moment when the pups are resting, after our youngest children had been playing with them and then captures them playing tug of war with a chew toy Joan gave us for them, who is having Alfie from the litter.
Three photos taken this morning of Tilly in with the pups and Alfie about to clean her face. Who needs flannels when you have pups.
Primrose and her three Cavalier pups are doing well and are now 6 days old.
End this blog on a couple photos I just got of Smudge and Henry's pups. Alfie and Freckle Nose. Freckle Nose is a lovely gentle boy and is still available from the litter.
