My daughter’s dog, Ivy had a litter of 8 puppies. She is a Black Labrador, gun dog. She had 5 boys and 3 girls. They go off to their new homes this weekend. All have been sold.
We have all had great fun with them and it has been a delight to see them grow up in this time. I have been amused at Ivy’s forbearance when they are feeding. She barely has a chance to lie down! This image below is I hope one of the last ‘mealtimes’ she will have to endure. I apologise for the quality of the image since it was through a very dirty window. What amused me was, as they are now older and bigger, they feed from her standing up anywhere they can get their mouths on her. In this one you may just be able to see, she was practically doing the splits with her back legs! Poor Ivy! I am sure she will miss her puppies but I think she will be relieved to get her life back too.
