I haven’t really updated you lately regarding the puppies. I think we have been too damned tired. We still are but there is a light at the end of rhe tunnel. My boyfriend has made a welping box for Lily and the puppies. You can see it on the picture above.
The puppies have come on leaps and bounds. They have all opened their eyes and are now walking. There is a video above showing smokey walking. I bet by weekend they will be running around. We are hoping to leave Lily in with them tonight. We have set up an app on the iPad called Arnold. It’s amazing you can use your iPad as a camera and another phone you can use as a receiver. It’s all done through your google account. It doesn’t matter if your phone is Apple or android. You can use both. We have been tuning in when we have been out of the house. The only problem is only one person at a time can watch the puppies. So we keep logging each other out which is frustrating when I am logged out ha ha. There will be lots of updates as the puppies develop and grow up. They are nearly 3 weeks old and we will keep them until they are between 10-12 weeks old. So we have plenty of memories to make and we can’t wait. There are exciting times ahead. I will check in again with you soon
I promised you some puppy pictures they are the cutest most adorable puppies ever. Two of them are opening their eyes and they are developing their own personalities. I am still a bit poo obsessed through. I haven’t seen them poo in days. I rang the vet yesterday and they said. I will be missing their mum cleaning them up and if I am still concerned call back in a few days. They seem content and not in any pain so I think the vet is right. Although I still would like to see some poo to put my mind at rest.
I will update you more on their development soon. We are still getting up in the night with them but I think it will be ok to leave their mum with them in a few weeks
Lily is finally bonding with her puppies. We muzzled and geld ger first and she has finally relaxed enough to feed them. It is a massive step.
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.
