5 weeks old already :)

Just had his lunch :)
They are all eating very well and are full of mischief of course, just how puppies should be.
I have moved them into a bigger space where they can have a good play. They are doing very well at coming off the soft, heated bed onto the paper to do their woooopsy's. They are very good.
Lola has had enough of them now and only occasionally visits and soon jumps out of their pen as they start to suckle.

I have recieved all of their kennel club documents so they will be ready to go to their new homes just after Easter.

What a great time of year to have a new puppy, with spring around the corner so, if you are strict with your training then by winter you should have a well trained, clean in the house dog.

All official :)

Kennel club registrations applied for for the puppies.
I do like to have it all in order and pass it onto the new owners as the puppies leave me.

They are all doing very well, becoming active and enjoying 3 meals a day. I'm not sure how much Lola goes in with them to let them have some milk but Phoebe certainly goes in for play time. She is lovely with them, often laying on her back with them all over her. Surprising as they have needle sharp teeth which they sink into her.

A new bed :)

 Where are those teats?

10 days old now and eyes almost open. They are very cloudy for a couple of days so it's probably like looking through net curtains in the early days.
I do love the smell of puppies. They have an enzyme in their saliva which has a specific aroma.

What fat puppies!!

A friend called by this morning and couldn't believe how fat the puppies are. They are, at just 2 weeks old just having Mums milk and they look stunning. Their eyes are just starting to open and as Lola is so laid back they have had lots of visitors so socialising already.

I am trying to build Lola up a little as of course she has dropped some weight after whelping but that shouldn't prove too difficult as she is a Labrador after all. :)

I have requested the documents from the Kennel Club so will be registered soon too.
