Primrose's Cavapoo pups where 8 weeks old on Saturday and visited the vets for their first vaccination and check over. They travelled very well and for this first trip in the car Mum came with them, as always like to get Mum checked over after the birth especially with Cavaliers to check the heart is sounding okay. Mum likes travelling in the car, so this helps pups to relax and hopefully start with positive outlook to going in the car. They travelled well to and back.
I have just registered with a new vet, having had association with my other vet for over 20 years it was not an easy decision but since they where taken over by another vets I have had problems in out of hour service and expected to travel to a surgery over twice as far away from my regular surgery. Instead of 8 miles away the surgery out of hours is over 20 miles away and when I have had an emergency cesarean out of hours and had to travel twice back and from the surgery instead of travelling around 32 miles I have clocked up over 80 miles to and from the surgery.
The surgery I am with now I have known for years working around farms and hopefully has kept its personal service which unfortunately as vets expand often is lost, seeing a different vet every time you visit the vet.
My first visit to my new vet went well and it was commented on how well grown, how healthy the pups seemed and how out going they are. On examination all seems well. No squeakers in the litter as they all took having their first vaccination bravely. Next time though they will also be micro chipped and that can be a different story, as the needle is a lot bigger to put the micro chip in with.
When we got home from the vets the pups had a treat and had a run around the whole of the property and then as you look at the photo's you will see the photo of them crashed out and did they sleep after their little outing.
They are really full on now and seem very confident in investigating every thing and last Friday Jenson 's curiosity got the better of him and on pulling a lamp lead nearly had a vase on his head. Luckily the vase hit the floor and Jenson sat looking at his handy work and as I said "Oh, Jenson !" to him looked up at me as if to say "It wasn't me. " The vase is no more but is replaceable.
I have just started getting their puppy packs and all their paper work together, seems like no time at all since they had just come into the world and not long now before they go out into the world.
The photo's are of the pups and a few of the adult dogs over the last two weeks and I have changed the collars of the pups recently with a blue collar on Jenson, a red collar on Archie, a pink striped collar on Milly and a white collar with multi coloured flowers on Maisy.
I have got a couple more videos done and will hope to edit and get them on here soon.
The photo below is what happens if you fall asleep in our house with our children around. Found it on my camera and have yet to find out who took this photo of poor unsuspecting Toby. Looks like he doesn't know either who took it or the fact that it was took.
