Default Re: Gertie had babies!!

Well, i've just received a message and video from my OH. He has counted 7 babies tonight!!

I got in contact with the breeder and was reassured that Gertie's behaviour is normal. Once the pups eat and drink the mothers leave them to it but still feed them a little. Gertie may have started the process of weaning them off. Some pups try to latch on which i've seen and others very much do their own thing. A big one climbed up to a corner and bar chewed trying to get out! 3 others were hovering around the feet of the climbing one acting as foot stools.

Looks like a right pandemonium.

I told my OH to chuck more whimzees through the top door.

Must go and place a food order at Zooplus now.
