This is a very comfortable Bed


Daily Weight Check

 All the Puppies get weighed every day, this ensures that they are all getting enough milk from mum and that they are all gaining weight. (3 Days old today)

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Violet has lost one of her Puppies.

Last Night (10/10/21) at about 7pm Kermit was found lifeless under mum, it looks like a tragic accident where she has accidentally laid on him.

Feeding Time

It's Feeding Time AGAIN.                When mum comes in the pups know exactly where to find the milk, even though their eyes and ears are not yet open.

The Second and Third pictures show Piggy getting her nails clipped and a nice clear view of her eyes open.
