Good news, bad news

The good news is that Dime is pregnant, the bad news is that Spirit is almost certainly not (though she could be almost a week behind Dime so I will check her again next weekend, but I'm fairly sure it will just confirm that she isn't).  We will try for a repeat mating on her next season and hope that the weather doesn't scupper our plans again. I'm so sorry that some of you are going to be disappointed, I was looking forward to keeping a pup from Spirit too :(.

This morning driving the van was still not possible, but we do have a small strip of woodland in easy walking distance, so we at least managed to get out today  Alfie stayed at home because he doesn't do cold or wet and Dollar also had to stay home as we had a bit of a scare after a sedation, for a biopsy on a mouth ulcer, on Friday and although she is much better today I felt she would be better staying home in the warm and dry (not sure she was convinced!)

The chickens didn't venture out at all yesterday, but the snow is melting fast and today they've braved it :)

The kittens remain oblivious to the weather conditions.

Whilst we wait....

With a bit of luck Dime should now be 2 1/2 weeks pregnant and Spirit 2 weeks, both girls will be scanned in a couple of weeks so keep your fingers crossed :)

In the meantime their routine remains unchanged and despite the weather we are still managing pretty good walks most days (one or two have been a bit shorter than normal as even the girls were saying why are we out in this? lol). Yesterday was beach day so here are a few pics :)

The kittens are coming on so well, already they are out and about and they are enjoying trying solid food.
