We are shattered. It’s been feeds every 3 hours. It’s more tiring than raising a new born baby. The only difference is we have 3 to look after. We have had a major break through. We held lily and she fed her babies. During the course of the night and day she became more relaxed. We muzzled her and we let he sniff the babies and then tonight we took the muzzle off. We were very close by in case she tried to bite then but her mothering instinct set in and she licked them and cleaned there bottoms. It was amazing and I hope that she now looks after them. I always new she would be a good mum. So fingers crossed.
I am going now as I am shattered and we have an hour and a half to thr next feed. I feel so relieved that lily is finally being a mother.
Ps, I am going to keep a puppy. My boyfriend says no but we are keeping one. Watch this space.
The pictures above are one of the beautiful puppies. We have a runt and this is the runt. He is my favourite. I am still hoping to be able to keep one. I have spent most of the day getting weed and pooed on. They do after every feed which is every 3 hours at the moment. I do not mind as it’s only puppy poo.
I feel like i have gone back in time by 15 years and it’s like raising a baby but we have 3 to feed. The night feeds are getting to me. Glad it’s the bank holiday so my boyfriend is home to help.
The puppies are doing well but I am not counting my chickings. I will write a how to bottle feed a puppy post if and when the puppies survive.
My daughter has gone to celebrate her exam results to day by going to a music festival. She has made her way there with her friends and is only staying for the day but I am still worried. I have given her the dos and dont’s the main one is don’t fall out with your friends and wander off on your own.
l love music festivals and have been to a number over the years and taken my children to one a few years ago. I hope this will help her know what to do.
I am going to rest as it will be feed time soon. I think I have just persuaded my boyfriend to keep a puppy. As we are bottle feeding them I feel attached to them. I also am only letting the puppies go to friends so we can see how they are and have updates.
There is great excitement in our house. We think the puppies will be here any day. Lily has milk so that is a sign she will be a new mum soon. It’s a nerve racking time. My partner is really stressed with it. I think he is reading up on it too much. He has bought a heat mat today and said that the nursery ( as he calls it) needs to be a 30 degrees. I even caught him putting the heater on yesterday. God knows why. I am not heating the room to 30 degrees when there are no puppies.
He was even up at 6.30 this morning stressing and I have a feeling he will want to sleep down there tonight. I am more calm about this. Maybe it’s cause I am a mum or the fact my cat has kittens a few years ago while I was out. Now that was stressful as I came home to a kitten on my daughters floor with no sign of the cat. I wrapped it in a towel and eventually found the cat in my sons wardorbe with 6 more kittens,
I will update you daily on the puppy situation and fingers crossed we have some good news soon.
Can’t wait this is what our puppies will look like
