Everyone has recovered beautifully from their surgery

It is like nothing ever happened!  The pups recover so quickly at this age.  Everyone is doing well!

Blue boy left us this morning and I received a note this afternoon to confirm we was safely snuggled in with his new family in Prince Edward Island.  Mocha, Nala, and Griffon go home tomorrow and Lola on Sunday.  Now I just need to find guardian homes for beautiful Shiraz and Merlot.

It has been a very busy week.  Silverstar and Snickerz had their annual physicals on Tuesday night.  Then the pups had their surgery on Thursday.  And today I had to rush Juno to the Vet as she has an unusually swollen mammary gland.   I've been expressing it twice a day for the last 3 days, but it hasn't improved so we had her looked at tonight.  Nothing appears to be wrong (good news), but I'll have to continue the expressing until the pups are weaned.  That is one of several downsides of a small litter.  Even though these pups are doing their best to drink all the milk (they weigh over 2kg - the same as Rosie's pups), they just can't drink it all.  Weaning will start over the next week anyway and then all will be good.

So, a busy weekend ahead of settling everyone in their new homes and then a little quiet next week.  Hopefully Guinness and Cassonade will start their heat cycles soon and we start all over again!
