Miracle of Birth

Well, Meggie has had her three puppies, and I was lucky enough to go back and see them all this morning and take some photos. She is fiercely protective of them and just the best Mum. They are warm, fed and spotlessly clean, and the report is that she hasn't even been out to the loo yet!

Proud daddy Fergus has been mostly left outside, and when he came a bit close this morning to sniff at all the exciting smells, Meggie leaped on him, growling ferociously. Poor little man. Men can be so dispensable!

He had to be satisfied with peeking around at them all from the chair.

A thing on mother's milk and kisses fed."
