Oh my goodness, such time wasters! Our little slugs are filling out well and dragging themselves around their bad like lightening! Flour is getting very tired, she has fed them non-stop since Sunday, so I took her to the vet yesterday for her post puppy check up and they gave her a vitamin injection to boost her. She’s much brighter today and has had a lovely walk around the field with me. Here are a few photos of the ‘gang’ – enjoy!!
Unfortunately I’m having trouble uploading photos to this site at the moment so there are only a couple to see! Hopefully I’ll get to the bottom of this and will be able to get more photos up soon.
Fleur is looking very serene in her pregnancy, especially when she’s sitting up on the sofa in the sun with mum!!!
Happy days!! We decided in the end that we would have Fleur scanned and found a wonderful lady from Holsworthy who comes to the house to do the scanning, so no worrying trip to the vet and the quite rough way that vets scan. Fleur didn’t even know she was doing anything to her and immediately we saw quite a few little ‘jelly babies’!
She doesn’t predict how many pups are likely to be born as anything can happen between now and the six week time when the little feotus can be re-absorbed, but she was confident that there will be more than six puppies. Even we could see that she’s carrying quite a few.
So, it’s a question of ‘watch this space’ now for the next few weeks, with puppies due on 23rd September. The first picture is Fleur and the other three are her ‘nutty husband’, who really doesn’t do posing, but his mummy says she will TRY to get some decent photos of him! He is rather handsome and a worthy Show Champion, so we’re hoping for some very nice puppies. His name is Bailey – Sh. Ch. Zymore Irish Cream
Our darling little Toddie flew his nest yesterday, away to pastures new, north of Bristol. At times we’ve pulled our hair out, gnashed our teeth and wilted with exhaustion, keeping a singleton male puppy amused, occupied, and learning manners, but it was all worth it in the end to see this beautiful young man stepping out into the next adventure in his life.
We wish him and his new mummy and daddy all the love and luck in the world and can’t wait to see him again at 6 months old, at his first show.
Our fondest love goes with you, darling little man, grow strong, be happy and remember how much we love you. xxxxx
