...against stormy skies
And now for a pup update: day 16.
Early morning nap
We 're moving around now...
I'm one of the quieter pups
I can see outside!
Ah, here's mum!
Yes, the pups' eyes are all open and they're becoming very mobile of a sudden. And as seen above, they're very interested in seeing what's outside the hut. Michael found a piece of press board in the garden shed and cut a strip off. Sekaminya was at the Guest House, so we asked him to come and attach the press board on top of the wooden barrier already in place.
The barrier heightened while the pups grow enough to stumble outside !
As I've posted about since the pups' birth two weeks ago, Princess is a very good mother. She feeds the pups, cleans them and then leaves them to rest herself. When I say clean, I don't mean she licks their fur and faces. No, she cleans what a human mum does for her own infant. Yesterday I noticed that there were few wet spots on the plastic flooring. While I washed the around the pups with Dettol water, Michael also rinse out the blanket. I spread an old towel on the floor which will act as a large communal nappy/diaper. This morning Michael will remove this towel, wash it in Dettol water and replace it with another old towel.
Here's to a wonderful weekend ahead.
