growing puppies

Posted in PuppiesII at 11:57 am by Lea

Those puppies are just getting bigger – a couple now have their eyes open and they are doing something akin to walking, rather than just wriggling around.
I got woken up last night by one whimpering – Rosie had managed to make a total mess of the puppy box and the towel was all in one corner. One puppy had managed to get itself onto the timber, and as it is smooth the pup had no traction to wriggle (I said they are walking – only sometimes, and it is very clumsy yet. Perhaps this one hadn’t figured it out). Anyway – poor little puppy could not find mum. Fortunately Nanna (that would be me!) came to the rescue and picked him up and popped him up against mum. Rearranged the towelling, too.
Its odd, but I haven’t ever seen Rosie pick one of the pups up – I have an image in my head of a mother dog picking her puppies up by the scruff of the neck and moving them around to where they should be. Rosie never does this, as most she pushes them around in the process of licking them clean. Not sure why that would be – perhaps I am wrong and its cats that do that, or something?

We have some new photos up in the gallery – go have a look :)
