Dad Whippet is such a mother hen. He is the one that spends the most amount of time with his puppies, tolerates their need to sit on him, they play and wrestle over the top of him, they pull at him, bite his ears etc, the only time he objects is when they think the family jewels might be fun to bite - ouch.
I've just been watching him wash their faces after they ate cold chicken necks and are snuggled into him in the box in the kitchen for warmth. Whippets layer on top of each other and this three excel at it. The older girls will lay with him also but avoid the puppies until they are worn out and tired.
So far he's only been used at stud once but it hasn't changed his loving personality. The Kelpies had little time for their babies.
What have others experience been with their entire male dogs and puppies.
Natty are your Borzoi loving dads? And what of the Tibbies?
