Just loving seeing your puppies, so cute! Toggle has just done his first Pony Club camp! What more could a boy want than 30 girls and boys to play with all day long? I can’t tell you how good he was, I let him in the tents/ caravans every morning to wake them up and then play all day. Attached is a photo with two of our under 7s, one of whom wanted to swap Tog for her dog (bless).
Week 4 and the princesses are up and about, exploring the palace inside and out. They can run now, although they usually then fall over, often crashing into one of their sisters or falling right into their food bowl. They now come over to say hello when I go into their room in the mornings, asking to have a cuddle by chewing my leg, which is nice. They are not terribly interested in their delicious food, as they still much prefer milk, but since they are growing continually that doesn’t really matter. Luna really enjoys playing with them, as you can see and she is the most patient and tolerant dog you are likely to meet.
Week 3 and it’s feeding time at Penny’s Puppy Palace. The princesses are ready to try something different, although they always enjoy a good drink from mummy. They are up and about a bit more, although still enjoying a nice long sleep. They have met their new families for the first time over the weekend and everyone is very happy. Now all they need are cuddles and play – oh and lots more food!
Visitors are welcome from 20th August – 21st September – please pop in for a cuddle and to watch them play, we’d like to see you.
Two weeks old and eyes are opening – hello there! They are also starting to play a little with each other and to wobble about rather than commando crawling. Most of the time they are still just sleeping beauties. However, these puppies seem very noisy – they like to have a time in the middle of the day when they practise their barking, woofing or squeaking. Sometimes it’s been so loud we could hardly hear the Olympics! They have been round to see the vet today for a quick check-up, everyone is doing very well. We had to take them now as next week they won’t fit in the box, nor stay there!
One week old and they look and sound just like guinea pigs – about the same size, smooth and squeaky and snuffling away. They are doing what they should be, growing! All have doubled their weight in 7 days, bang on target. They still have their eyes shut and cannot walk, but they ‘scamper’ around in a very lively fashion.
Luna is, as predicted, a brilliant mum. She loves just hanging out with her babies, even when they are stuffed full and busy sleeping. She makes sure they have plenty of toys to snuggle up to, bringing in all the old teddies even after I had been shopping for new pink toys. Of course she doesn’t mind at all if they wander all over her, so although she keeps them beautifully clean, she might get some poo in her ear 😉
