Day Thirty - 6th December 2011

Today the girls and puppies had a nice play, the girls haven't been able to play with the puppies for a while as they have had the Hand, Foot & Mouth Virus going around. Our Vet didn't think it was a good idea if the girls went near the puppies whilst they were infectious, so we've had to keep them apart. The puppies seem to have grown so much since the girls last played with them and are fast approaching 4kg each.

Day Thirty Four - 10th December 2011

Today the pups had a little romp around outside the whelping box in the puppy room. This is the first time that they've left the familiar surroundings of their whelping box.

To start with they all froze to the spot, noses out stretched sniffing the floor and looking around.

Then Mr Red & Mr Blue plucked up the courage and came wandering over to Philippa and decided that their new found freedom was actually quite fun and there was nothing to be scared of.

Miss Pink sat for quite a while, yapping and yawning and eventually decided that sitting still was boring so went exploring.

Mr Purple had other ideas to begin with, he figured commando crawling around the room was the safer option until he realised that he wasn't getting anywhere fast.

As the Irish Litter get older they will explore different areas of Pasturegreen under our watchful eye, for puppies can very quickly get themselves in a whole lot of trouble.


Day Thirty Five - 11th December 2011

Today the puppies moved into their puppy run. Because Mervyn has enlarged and revamped our puppy room he had to build a new puppy run. Mervyn spent all day sawing, screwing and creating the puppy run and later this afternoon the puppies said goodbye to their whelping box and hello to their puppy run.

Normally we move the puppies out of the whelping box at four weeks but as the Irish Litter only amounts to four puppies and they weren't short of space they have stayed in the whelping box for a week longer.

The Puppy run is 6ft by 10ft. It is deep filled with the shredded paper which makes for a warm, clean bed for the puppies to live and play in.

Because the flooring of our puppy room is non-slip vinyl which is sealed around the edges it means that we can keep the puppy run spotlessly clean and that any escaping mess can easily be cleaned up.

It was very good for the puppies to have all the commotion around them with Mervyn putting up the puppy run and they quickly got used to the sound of the power drill and screwdriver as well as the saw and hammer.

Some of the shredded paper which went into their puppy run came from their whelping box so they were used to the smell and texture of the paper, so it was just the larger space and the view though the mesh that they had to get used to.
