Smudge is now six days after having her c-section to produce her nine beautiful pups. She had her last antibiotic tablet this evening and her wound is looking very good and she is producing gallons of milk, as you will see from one of the photos below of one of her pups that had crawled up on to her back. The wet on the pup is Smudge's milk. As it sucked the milk flow was such at one stage, it came quicker than the pup could suckle it.
The pups are now six days old and seem to be thriving. You can see their noses are changing colour and it will be lovely to see their eyes open, which starts to happen from around 12 to 14 days old.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
