Three weeks old today

Article text
It's three weeks today since Maisie's pups were born, and she's proved to be a wonderful mother. All the pups are looking well and she keeps them spotlessly clean. How long that will continue I'm not sure, as they will soon be having solid food, and that's when the messy stage starts!

It's always amazing that overnight these little fat slugs become proper puppies - at three weeks to the day. This lot have always been extremely active, but now they are playing and making little woofy noises.

Soon they will be developing individual characters. This is the time I enjoy most when rearing a litter!
