What a day it has been, pups have been wormed for the first time, had nails trimmed again, weighed, all blooming, and most momentous of all (well for them anyway!) their first meal.
They all relished the experience. Most of it, I think, went in their tummies. Kite came in afterwards and did a great job of cleaning their faces, tummies, paws, in fact every bit of them.
We have puppy proofed the “maternity wing “, plastic down now and bless their cotton socks they are coming out onto the paper to wee. Their sense of adventure is starting to kick in and every day sees them more stable on their paws.
Now a confession, to mine and Chris’s huge embarrassment, while handling the pups for their worming, Chris questioned if he had the correct pup, Sprout, because he was a girl !!! We checked and double checked and yes Sprout is indeed female. The new tally is 6 boys 3 girls.
Once we were 100% I offered one family who had been waiting all year for a pup first refusal of changing back to a girl, which they decided to do. Katie and Matt now have one less boy to choose from so their decision should be a fraction easier when the time comes.
Enjoy the new instalment of photos and video footage.
