Mother and babies doing well!

Article text
Emily is proving to be a super mother, and the pups are feeding well and putting on weight. She really doesn't want to leave them and has to be persuaded to go outside from time to time.

Normally it's essential to keep baby puppies warm as they can't regulate their own temperature at this age so usually I have a Petnap heater to keep the puppies snug. However, the weather is so warm at the moment that the heater isn't needed, and Emily has actually taken the comfy bedding out so that she is lying on newspaper.

It's important that she is relaxed and comfortable so that she can give all her attention to her babies.
