Smudge's nine Cavalier cross Brittany pups are now 16 days old. Their eyes are all opening now, a few days before they are fully open and also their ears. This evening we noticed for the first time a pup wagging its tail, which is always a joy to see.
They are starting to respond to the sound of the human voice and are starting to play with each other in the whelping box. We found one of the girls had some how got out of the whelping box just now, which is fair going for only 16 days old. I think it was more luck then judgement though.
Just a few photos of the rest of the pack, who are all well. Primrose is looking very well at just over four weeks pregnant and I have been a bit overwhelmed by the interest in her pending litter and will try to catch up with my inbox over the next few days, but just want to say, "At this time we are not taking anyone on a waiting list for Primrose's litter."
After doing a blog about waiting lists in 2015 a while ago, I have now put this information on the website page, 'Buying A Puppy From Poundlane' page to tell people that in 2015 we will not take anyone on waiting lists for litters until the pups are born and around four weeks old. As we are retaining pups from both litters in 2015, I thought this way would be easier, as I can pick from each litter without the pressure of waiting lists, it would save me the time of up keeping a waiting list, chasing people up, keeping everyone up to speed on a waiting list and to avoid the disappointment of waiting and not getting a pup for people, but how wrong was I.
“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.”
