The pups have started to discover the great outdoors and the fact that there are dogs other than poodles! Purdie( our GSD) is proving to be just as good as an auntie as she was a mum. Although they love exploring new surroundings their stamina leaves something to be desired. We have had visits from some of the pups new owners, who have travelled for several hours, and after 10/15mins all they had to look at was sleeping babies!!
Their coats are continuing to show subtle signs of going silver particularly around the head and feet, but even their bodies have taken on a blueish shade- can't wait to see them after their first bath and clip. It might help me decide who I am going to keep.
Dollar has had a rough couple of days, yesterday morning everything was fine but early evening she developed acute mastitis, huge swollen teat, temp approaching 105 and shivering, rushed her to the vets where she was given the relevant treatments and after a further visit today she appears more comfortable. Through all this she has chosen to continue to nurse her babies who continue to thrive.
