Lucy's pups are now one day old & she is being a brilliant Mum. She is taking it all in her stride with her first litter of seven pups. This is a big litter for a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel & with it being Lucys first litter it is showing her strength of character that she is getting on with looking after them so well. She has lots of milk & lies out so that all the pups are easily accomadated when suckling. She has got her appetite fully back & is eating really well & drinking lots which is always a good thing.
Got some photos of Lucy & pups but also got some lovely photos of Smudge & Primrose together. These two are half sisters both having the same Dad Charlie. Smudge now is 7 months old nearly & her Mum is Millie. Primrose is around 15 weeks old & her Mum is Ysabel. Although Smudge is a lot bigger than Primrose these two are such good friends & they play & play together, they are a joy to watch & very funny as Smudges gentle manner just like her Mum is displayed when playing with her little sis.
