    Hard bitten farmers...lol yea right.

    Jim, a neighbour, lives alone after looking after his mother who was recently placed in a hostel here, looked after her maltese as well. Jim is here about 3 times a week, part of the family really.

    Buster died a few days ago in his sleep, old age.

    Up comes Jim in his ute, a small plastic kennel in the back. He says to me he bet the pups would like a cubby house later in the pen or they can have some time out if some want to, lol. That was so sweet.

    He had also recently bought Buster a new bed. He brought that too for Pretty inside for later. I did not tell him I think it would be too small but she will have the choice.

    That really touched me. He came down to see them all, said bloody hell, you hussy to her and was amazed they were so white when born. He recons the sire Boris has a fair bit of dalmation in him due to spots.

    Thank you.

    Good god, Pretty laid a Prince!
    Hubby this morning just casually told me that Boris (sire) has papers!
    I just thought he was an ugly, long legged, boofheaded mutt.

    Boris was abused with the first home he went to (he is extremely timid, no one can get near him bar hubby, FIL and me (me only if carrying food) and was returned when FIL then purchased him. (will take a pic when he is next over here)


    Day 2. (you will not get daily reports...then again you might as it is becoming a journal)

    She is the textbook perfect mother (I am sooooo relieved)

    I was a tad concerned yesterday late arvo when she still had not been outside to relieve herself. (I do remember my trepidation with birth and stitches with this but she does not have any)

    I bundled up the pups in a padded basket and she followed me out. Did the number ones so I took pups straight back and she settled with them.

    This morning she wanted out so out she went, straight back in. As pups were all in a well fed stupor I called her with a big chunk of beef in my hand. Out she went quite happily, ate most, stashed some, had a Bowel movement (loose, most formed, some sloppy) and back in as soon as she wanted to. As I do not need the puppy formula for them she is getting it twice a day with her puppy supercoat etc.

    I was thinking of changing her bedding while she was away but thought that her hearing distress from the pups while she was away from them would be counter productive when this was her first voluntary venture out.

    Forgot to add.

    Hubby and Jim put up the shade cloth in the carport late arvo. Hubby hoped I would transfer them there today. I don't want to, lol, I want at least a week inside till they can start adjusting their own body temp. Vet sites say this starts at about a week.

    As usual I was sneaky.
    I asked him was the bed in there comfy, the aircon good, good sleep? All was yes...sooooo

    Oh good says Di, then you won't mind spending some more days in there as you know how I keep checking all is ok and I will get a much better sleep if they are with me a while longer and I would be going out there now and then during the night. (I have been quite ill the last 6 months, a lot better atm, still trying to diagnose it and I traded on his concern...bad bad Di)

    Ok, he says.

    THEN...I said, we lost a pup in the makeshift towels bedding borders for a short while last night, I really do need a temporary whelping box. Hmmmmm, he says. Think I have some planks in the shed....and off he trots. (insert devil eyes gleaming emote)

    Oh, I weighed all the pups yesterday.
    There are 4 males, 2 females and all are 300grams or over.
    I will do it evry couple of days a while just to check all is well but by eye, all are full and sleep well.

    So much has changed with him, as I knew it would, from no way will she have them inside, keep only the one his father chooses, and who cares it is only a dog to actually showing the care he has.

    (Many years ago there was a fave cat of mine, he was always saying bloody cat, go away. I spied one day him playing with it, the coochy coochy coo thing, lol I showed myself, he blushed, said..bloody cat and went back to work.)

    Bedding change to be done in a sec.
    It is a fantastic warm temperature down that end of the house. I want my air con on at night, but I don't, lol.
    Outside temp is latter half of 30's here and pups are content to sleep in heaps away from mum at times.

    The pen area that I pictured before was to be only temporary as where that is, a new split system aircon will be going in as soon as they can fit it. Hot exhaust air blowing down into box in the next months would not be pleasant. Now that hubby is fine with them being inside longer and shade cloth is up, we will be relocating it away diagonally opposite from where she is now and a bigger pen erected that will be the final area for her to relocate with the pups instead of the temporary one there till it is installed.

    Will post a pic when done.
