I almost posted this a whole month early. It wasn't that I forgot when their birthday is, it's just that I misplaced my grip on which month we were in. Ahem.
First, here are their parents:
|L: Neka age 10 yrs - R: Keskiyo age 8 yrs|
This was Neka's second litter of puppies, an amazing bunch of NINE who remain, to this day, the largest litter ever born in the UK. Neka did an absolutely stellar job of raising them, and all these years later I can still remember how exhausted I was with all the feeding, house training and socialising by the time they were 7 weeks old. Oh, and did I mention that it rained just about every day those puppies lived here? There was rather too much of the lugging them back and forth from the garden pen.
If you would like to check out what life was like with 9 puppies, go back to the first days of this blog which you can access via the archives list to the right.
In the meantime, here are the 6-year-olds and their 6-week-old selves - well most of them, anyway.
