Dolly's & Ysabel's Cavapoo pups are now living together in harmony. Mum's allow any pup to suckle them regardless of who's they are although Mum's are now slowly allowing less time to suckle for the pups & can be found gentle playing with them at times which is always lovely to watch Mum interacting playfully with their pups.They are getting braver by the day & I leave the pen get open certain times of the day & each day they adventure further from the den.
The funniest thing to see is when they are all asleep I go in once a day & hoover around the pen with my industrial sounding hoover & they do not stir but forget to undo the pen door without clicking it & they are all sat up wide awake.
I have booked them in today with the vet for their first vaccination & to be microchipped on the 20th December, as only 5 days apart we will have the vet visit us & do both litters together. Pups can have the first vaccination from 6 weeks but the second must not be done before 10 weeks old. Most people start vaccinations at 8 weeks, as my vet told me if Mum is vaccinated her antibodies passed on in her milk are just starting to wane in the pup around 8 weeks old. Due to Christmas we are having to do them a bit before 8 weeks to be sure to get them done before leaving us.
Lucy's Cavapoo pups are 4 days old today & are already looking tubby. Lucy is doing a sterling job of mothering them & like all are Mum's is very attentive
Lastly a lovely photo taken by my son Bert of Millie snuggled up with her daughter Smudge, just showing your never to big for a cuddle with Mum.
