eat-sleep-eat-sleep-eat........grow a bit more....eat...

Well as you can see.....one week- old bloodhounds dont do too much at this stage. Logics getting a bit bored with all the sitting around and like me, she cant wait for their eyes to open and for them to start being a bit more active.

Official Complaint

An official complaint has been lodged by Tennant, because in stead of being mums number one baby...hes now relgated to 9th in line......so wise boy that he is, he worked out that mum shares her time between sitting in with the puppies or watching them on the cctv from another room, so hes decided to sit infront of the screen with a toy in his mouth until he gets some attention!!


Bloodhound puppies grow at an alarming rate and these guys are no exception.
Theres one boy who is a bit smaller and his thuggish sisters are always pushing him off the milk supply so I decided to top him up a little with Royal Canin puppy milk. He loves it and its really made a difference to his daily weight gain. However when some friends came over yesterday and saw I was busy "messing" with puppies they offered to make us all a coffee.......I thought it tasted a bit odd but said nothing. After they left I realised they had used the jug of RC puppy milk !!!
Its fantastic not to have to work/pick up a camera for a few weeks but I have had so many emails wanting to see pix of the little guys that I had to take a few last night...heres my favourites! As you can see, Logic is taking to motherhood with her usual calm attitude and snored her way through most of the photo shoot!

five days

well they are now 5 days old and growing! Amazingly they all have different personalities and even at this tender age their characters are showing through.....typically the two liver girls are complete gannets and growing twice as fast as the rest......Big bertha one of the B&T girls is a complete thug, and litte "Curate" is spending as much time as he can, crawling up my trouser leg and snoozing there!!
For some reason logic decides at 4am EVERY morning, that she wants to climb onto my camp bed and escape her babies.....so I havent had too much sleep yet, as you will gather should you phone me this week!!
photos to come tomorrow if all goes to plan.

Well Logic had 8 babies in all. Final headcount is 4 boys and 4 girls. Logic is the perfect mother and is feeding them well.
My camp bed next to the whelping box is relativley comfy, and I will be staying there for a few weeks yet.
I will try to get some nice pix of the babies in the week, but for the moment these quick snaps will have to do!

sitting in the whelping box......

im sitting in the whelping box with a laptop!! So far we have 7 babies and Im not sure but there could be just one more lurking!
All ok so far, Logic is a very very proud mother and already has chosen her favourite one!
It was quite a shock to have 2 liver girls in the litter as I wasnt expecting any livers......I am thrilled about it. Photos to follow soon.

Countdown Begins

Well the countdown to the arrival of our litter of bloodhound puppies has begun. OK I know technically its 10 days away but after the experience of Tarnish having hers a week early last year, I am taking no chances this time! Logic is getting pretty big, despite me telling everyone that she wasnt just a week ago.
Its amazing how much interest this litter is attracting , with calls from friends in Italy, America and Switzerland today, all wanting to know how the mum-to-be is doing. OK must go and paint the whelping room a suitable "nursery" colour!
