Sally’s Puppies: 4 Weeks

2 English Setter PuppiesSally Tapdance whelped a litter of 11 puppies on January 1, 2014.  While not a record setting litter (our largest litter was 13 pups!) these puppies demand a LOT of attention from their mom.

Now that the puppies are romping around, we’ve removed the front panel from their whelping box.  They have freedom to explore the club room of the kennel, and seem to have found a favourite spot beside the woodstove.

Since there are so many puppies, we have already begun to supplement their food with some puppy food soaked with milk replacer.  With eleven mouths to feed, Sally can use all the help she can get! She is a devoted mother, keeping the whelping box spotlessly clean for her growing brood.
