Maisie and Jaffa have today become the proud parents of 6 beautiful puppies. We have 4 dogs and 2 bitches born between 15.35 - 18.40pm. They weigh between 485 - 575g. We are absolutely thrilled with how everything has gone, nice delivery and Maisie such a natural mother.
All settled in the whelping box, just a couple of hours old
Day 6 - and filling out well
Maisie is still spending virtually all her time with her babies
2 weeks old
Is that really comfortable?
Day 15 and we’re finding our feet...
Day 22 - they’ve taken to solids very well
but still like a top-up from mum...
It’s a hard life....
Day 27 - pups spent a short while outside when the sun came out
Maisie is starting to look weary...
Day 35 - Great Auntie Ellie giving pups a wash with Tizzie trying to barge in too
Had enough of that, I want to chew your ear
Tizzie wanting to play
Sleeping in the sunshine
Day 42 - a windy day and found a leaf
First biscuit - what do I do with it??
Investigating in the big dog room
Pups are now over 6 weeks old but Maisie is still the perfect mum
This dear little pup is ‘The Colonel’ - the Hounds for Heroes puppy
The puppies weren’t keen on coming in tonight..... perhaps they fancied a night under the stars.....
Introducing - Cuckmere River Island - Sonny
Cuckmere River of Gold - Lewis
Cuckmere Cry Me A River - Poppy
Cuckmere River of Hope - Daisy
And then there were just two boys left.....
Cuckmere River of Dreams - Jesse
And last but not least Cuckmere River Boy - ‘The Colonel’
Kissing Shannon good-bye....
Colonel was collected by Allen Parton and taken to his ‘Puppy Parents’ in West Sussex
He had E.J. and Ikea in the car with him for company
Although it is always sad for us when puppies leave with their new families, it was a particularly emotional day for me when Colonel here. We wish him well with his Puppy Parents and when he starts his formal training in about a years time. We aim to keep in touch with his progress and sincerely hope he passes his training and is able to make s difference to someone’s life.
To see how the litter settle into their new homes please click here
Due to the enormous amount of interest in people asking us how Colonel is getting on with his training etc, I have decided to create his own page which I hope I can update regularly with news bit obviously this will depend on what I get told of.
