Its been a long 48 hours and my Mum's little Cleo has had 5 Cavapoo pups. This will be a surprise for everyone. Cleo is my mum's little Cavalier & she is 3 years old, she has on occasion been seen in photo's on my blog when she wanders over from my mum's annexe to play with our dogs. My mum tried her a year ago but no pups happened, so mum tried Reggie 12 months later & Cleo has produced 5 lovely pups. They did have to be delivered by cesarean as the first pup decided to come bum first with legs back, so yesterday evening was spent observing her & on examining her after her waters had broken & realising the pup was bum first with legs back l spent the night traveling out to Bideford at around midnight with Cleo to then pick her up around 3am & after a 5am start the morning before & the children home, tonight putting my head down on a pillow will be very welcome.
This is the only litter Cleo will have & my mum is like a mother hen with her little brood. Cleo is doing really well she is a very sweet gentle natured girl & motherhood is coming naturally to her even though she missed the birth which can cause bonding problems sometimes especially with a first time mum. Cleo is very much attached to her new borns.
She has 3 golden/apricot boys, 1 black boy & 1 black girl. I will be intouch with people on my waiting lists about this litter.
Funny how you do not have a cesarean for a couple years & then have two straight off but all are well which is the most important thing.
Millie's brood are now over 14 days old & I got this video of them on Monday at 2 weeks old. As you can see they are all going on well. Now over twice the size born now.
