Needless to say, the pups are beautiful. They were just finishing off their lunchtime milk fix when we arrived. I think Maggie was happy to escape for a while for a toilet break and stretch of legs.
They all seem very teeny still. They all had fat little bellies full of milk. They all have their eyes open and it seems like they are starting to hear as they appeared to be reacting to our voices and to each other.
They can just about waddle around, but all look very drunken when they do, falling over lots and bumping into each other.
They still spend lots of time snoozing so we spent a lot of time sitting watching them. We didn't want to keep disturbing them and making them miss out on vital sleep.
As they are still so small and young, it's impossible to get a feel for their individual personalities or characters yet. The breeder has their eye on one girl in particular, and are possibly keeping a second too. 2 other couple were there at the same time we were, and another was visiting on Sunday, so that's all of them accounted for!
We will go back in 2 weeks to see them again. By then they should be very different - a fair bit bigger, starting to be weaned, and much, much more active! It will be very exciting to see them all again and see how their unique characters are developing.
They have said they will pick the one(s) they are keeping at 6 weeks to give everyone else the chance to choose. I don't know what number we are in the list, but I'm sure whichever pup turns out to be Cassidy will be the right one for us. I'm sure Oscar has a paw in it all and is sorting it out for us. We got to see Oscar's mum and his elder brother Arthur which was lovely.
We have some other news which I'm trying to post on Oscar's blog without much luck. If I can't I'll post it here.
