This is a
pictorial diary of the Messano 'W' litter, Swedish Champion Floprym Rivaldo
(Rivaldo) x Messano Riseand Shine (Sunny). The litter was born
on 17/12/2009 and consists of 2 bitches and 6 dogs.
The puppies were introduced to solid food with raw, minced beef steak....
...they are initially hand-fed to ensure that they each get an equal share...
....they enjoy this a lot.
The puppies continue to have visits from their new owners...
,,,they certainly enjoy the attention.
After a few days, the puppies were also fed mince mixed in with Burn's complete food...
...it is important to give them a variety of different foods.
Today the W puppies were put in the run with the V puppies...
....both the Mum's fed the puppies...
....they fed from whichever 'mum' that they could!
The V & W litters were put together today and let outside into the run. They had fun playing with each other, and as Sally is Sunny's mum, the V litter are all aunts and uncles to the W litter!
They all had a feed from the two mums, it did not matter to any of them which of the girls that they fed from... the milk is all the same as far as they are concerned!
The next frame is a You Tube video showing the puppies together.
These photos show the V & W puppies together in the run enjoying chicken wings...
they like to play together.
On Saturday, the boys were bathed ready for their visitors...
....the puppies did not seem to mind being washed...
...Rumour found it very interesting....
...doesn't he look cute!
The puppies have also had time in the big run...
...it's fun exploring!
These photos show the puppies playing in the snow....
...the more observant of you may notice that there are 9 puppies...
...this is because there is still one puppy from the V litter with us until next weekend and he is now an honorary member of the W litter!
We have been assessing the boys this weekend...
...one of these 3 puppies will be going to a show home in Poland...
...we have a week left to decide on the best puppy/
