Cyda’s puppies are now able to feed themselves – Burns Mini Bites, soaked in warm water until soft and mushy. They can also lap. Cyda has done really well for them, and still likes to go in to them occasionally, but the puppies chase her round the pen until she relents and allows them to feed. Now that all the puppies have teeth as sharp as needles, that is not a pleasant experience for Cyda, so I am using crystals from Charles Barrett‘s invaluable Birthing Pack of homoeopathic medications, to help her lose her milk, so she can start to regain her strength. Her coat is coming out in handsful, but that, as any mother will know, is what babies do to you.
