Never got round to updating on Mollie’s mommy status: She eventually had 5 puppies. Not one died. And we’re still debating paternity.
There are 3 dogs and 2 bitches. One pup looks like Mollie; white with brown spots. 2 are white with brown/black ears; and 2 look like Klonkie, the Fox Terrier/Jack Russel cross on the farm (Meulsteenberg) – white with black spots. We’re keeping one of the black dogs. I just have to have Mollie fixed as soon as she’s weaned them.
Here are some pics.
First baby is out. I left her alone and went to work. The puppies’ eyes are closed – those funny spots are it’s eyebrows.
1 day old: First time Mollie left the nest to eat – so i snapped a pic. 5 puppies in all.
1 Week old: They’re growing by the day! Getting cute too.
2 Weeks old: All they seem to do is eat, burp and sleep.
3 weeks old: The nest is getting a bit cramped.
We decided to keep one of the males: in the back with the black faces, the one one the left – and his name is Junior cause he looks just like his daddy, Klonkie.
