Well, who would believe such tiny things could be so demanding? Not a wink of sleep last night as they barked and gurgled their way through the night – yes, barked!!! It must be boys – as we’ve only ever had 2 boys at most in the past we’re not used to all this shouting!!!
Whatever happens with the doom and gloom of the recession and the dreadful weather we have had here in the South West this summer, our loyal customers and friends have still taken their holidays and come to us at Towsers with their best friend for their holiday. Coupled with many new customers at the kennels we have enjoyed a really hectic season, with our regulars realising they need to book well in advance in the busy periods.
We are having a bit of a breather now until half term at the end of October, and then Christmas will be on us sooner than we care to think!
After much huffing and puffing all day on Sunday Sue took Dawn to the vet on Monday morning where she had a cesarean section, resulting in 8 lovely puppies – 7 dogs and 1 bitch! They are big, healthy puppies, averaging 17oz at birth and parat from my little baby girl, who seems quite small at 12 oz, although even that is a good size for a setter puppy. Dawn is doing them really well, they are constanly on their 8 stools at the milk bar and Dawn has already drunk over 4 litres of Goats milk in 24 hours!
Not much sleep for Sue last night on constant puppy watch!
This is Jem in one of his favourite positions – under the blanket on the dog’s chair. How stupid is he?!!
Today (Friday 19th October) Dawn decided to throw us into panic by starting to nest! She isn’t due to whelp until next week, but after breakfast she disappeared into the spare bedroom and started to dig her way through to Australia. After about half an hour she stopped, looked at me and said she wanted to go outside! Now I know this was just a ruse to stop me going to visit Suzanne’s pups as I was all set and ready to go out the door! Naughty girl!
