Growing Pups...and A Competition!
Hallo again - I have finally got the chance to escape from my puppies for a moment to be able to get to the computer and blog again. As you can see I'm looking a bit raggedy - my coat and tail are terrible but I have had a shower and a bit of a clean up so I'm feeling better than I was last week! Thursday a week ago 4 little ones were born and you should see them now! While I got a lot thinner - they have got much bigger:
Caoimhe says she thinks they are little rotties and they are certainly big now - and noisy - they fight each other to get some milk! Oh it can be quite painful for me - I don't think they are bothered if I'm hurting :-( But the one good thing about this mothering at the moment is I am getting lots of extra treats - I have special tasty biscuits, chicken stock drinks, extra meals... and lots of cuddles when I manage to get away from the babies for a while. They haven't opened their eyes yet and I don't think they can hear either but that should all happen next week. I will let you know how they grow and Leigh will take more pictures of them too.
But the other thing I remembered was the competition for all my bloggy friends to win some doggy surprises from Crufts. This competition is for anyone wherever you live in the world and we are going to make it a caption competition as you are all very good at writing fun comments on your own blogs. This is a photo of Maisie - she was Leigh and Judith's very first mini schnauzer and went everywhere with them on holiday. This photo was taken in Wales at a holiday cottage and for the competition just put your own caption to the picture. You can email your captions to Leigh at: firstname.lastname@example.org The closing date is a week tomorrow so it will be Friday 30 March 2012 and the winning entry will be put on the blog on Monday 2 April. Have fun!
