Video tonight was taken this morning and shows Primrose's Cavalier/Brittany pups at 16 days old calling for their Mum. Mum does not come when they call, but stoically waits for the squeaking to cease. You will see Mums start do this with their pups at around two weeks old and it is not Mum rejecting them. They seems to know better than them, when they need feeding.
You will see the first born pup who we have called for now Cliff or Clifford is pretty much up on all fours and walking the most confidently of the litter at this time. I have found with pups that the less exaggerated in morphology the earlier they are up and mobile. I have a feeling being born first is going to be the first of many firsts for Clifford. Watch out for waggy tails.
