After our adventurous summer last year with the successful arrival of Millie’s first litter and subsequent efficacious homing of all the pups bar one, Welsh now known as Dylan ( the destroyer) only joking! who we had decided to keep being the first born.
We are now finally ready to welcome home boarders into our family.
The puppies are well and truly up and running. We’ve just wormed them for the second time and now they’re having a doze. Life seems to be eat, run around, doze, run around a bit more, doze then eat again. Millie is not fdeeding them as much. In 3 weeks time they will all be gone (bar one).
The puppies sare now three weeks old and starting to move around. We’ve added a video to the gallery page so you can see them. Next week we start worming and then weening them off Millie. Millie’s been a fantastic mum, cleaning and feeding on demand. She’s now quite happy to spend time away once the puppies have been fed and at the moment she is laid out in front of the fire snoring away.
We’ve alos linked their names to their coloured collars; just using their middle names:
Black collar – Welsh
Red – Cader
Green – Camri
Yellow – Eirlys
Blue – Lili
Pink – Ceian
We’ve now agreed the names for all the puppies though we haven’t yet decided which name to give to which puppy.
The boys are going to be called:
- Pantygarreg Cader Venture
- Pantygarreg Welsh Venture
and the girls:
- Pantygarreg Camri Venture
- Pantygarreg Eirlys Venture
- Pantygarreg Lili Venture
- Pantygarrge Ceian Venture
All puppies are doing well Their eyes and ears are opening. Millie is feeling more confdent as a mother and now leaves the whelping box for longer periods. All the puppies have been regsitered with the Kennel Club under our breeding name of Pantygarreg.
We have also had our first escapee! the puppy with the blue collar managed to rolke over the small barrier at the entrance to the whelping box – guess we need to start riasing the bar.
We are glad to report that mum and puppies are doing well. All the puppies are putting on weight and we look forward to them opening their eyes in the next week.
