For the last couple of days the puppies poo's have been soft, but today they have diarrhea. It's so disheartening as it seems to happen with every litter, and as you talk to people you discover it's not just your litters that it happens too. It always seems to occur at about the 6 -7 week period and the puppies are rarely ill.
So what the hell causes it? Well I can only think it's to do with all the crap they start eating at this age. Leaves, cat shit, mud, grass, stones, hair and anything else they can find. No matter how careful you are, it happens. Because they had found their way through to the planted garden we had already banned them from the front garden. Kito stinking of cat shit had been enough to put us off the idea of them playing out there and yesterday we went over to the caravan garden .. sadly a bit of a case of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.
The vet are going to provide us with some probiotics and we are to stick to fish and rice for some days now. (They stressed no chicken just white fish!) As long as they are eating, drinking and playing then there is no reason to panic ... apparently!
Due to circumstances at home I could not get the puppies weighed last Thursday. To be honest it is now more of an estimate than a science, but we try. All the pups were over 6kg today - so yeah, very chuffed they are still doing well.
Kaiah didn't want to get out of the bag after being weighed ..
and can you see who's looking in through the window?
A three way tug over a toy in the yard.
They have been so lucky so many people have come up with toys for them
but no, not the triplets, it was three older kids! Well Nico made the first hole and I confiscated it, but bright spark Sammi got it back and started pulling the stuffing out only for Loki to well and truly finish the job!
So apologies to Auntie Carrie who gave it to little Riley years ago. I guess it did survive well here really.
An old song from the early nineties that George didn't feel was good enough to be released, from the unfinished Trojan Souls album. Lots of us have it on "unofficial" discs as it was leaked years ago. But maybe it really should get released....reading the comments on YouTube, loads of people think its a "new" song. 561,156 views in 3 months is pretty impressive. The video has been tastefully made by a fan, it was not on the soundtrack to Fifty Shades.
