Growing fast..

These puppies are record breakers in this house; I now totally understand why having half as many offspring is a biological advantage – they are growing twice as fast!  Luna is the most brilliant mother, constantly feeding, cleaning and cuddling her puppies.

Luna gets rather hot in the bed, so despite having lots of comfy bedding for her and the pups to sleep on, she would rather push it to one side and sit on the paper to feed.

 

This has resulted in the puppies being snuggled up into, or up onto the bedding – ready to go off and explore the world?  Not just yet..

We’ve had a few visitors, despite the fact that they are not very interesting at the moment.  They really do a good impression of guinea pigs – they are the right size, nice and smooth and silky and they even squeak and grunt (although they do occasionally bark as well!)

I have realised with these puppies in particular, that handling them from such an early age is really important in making them familiar with people of all different shapes and sizes.

Even though they can’t see or hear yet, dogs are so reliant on smell that they do know when they are being held by someone and whether that person is familiar or unfamiliar.  They already ‘snuggle in’ and it is so nice when they do 🙂

 

 

 

 

Finally this week, I wanted to share a montage I’ve made from recent pictures of the last litter, with their parents.  This picture shows mum, dad and the five princesses.  Aren’t they beautiful?  You can see the family likenesses and how much they are all enjoying life.  Makes me very proud.

A whole family!
