Bye Bye Babies............
I went for a last visit and to photograph Glynnis's cavoodle puppies yesterday. I haven't seen them for a few weeks because I can't drive at the moment, so she came and picked me up.
The babies are ready to go this weekend, and though they will be missed, managing a pile of wriggly puppies with constant needs is beginning to tell on the family. Apparently they are waking at 3.30 onwards for breakfast and go right on squealing and wrestling for hours afterwards.
Mum Meggie is really enjoying playing with them and gets right down and dirty rolling around and nipping at them. Other times, it's all too much.
Little Ruby is very quiet and gets picked on a bit by the other two rowdy bubs. She retreats to her bed and snoozes when things get too rough.
As we left for the drive home, Meggie asked to come too, and she sat, free as a bird in the grandsons' car seat, head out the window and not thinking about babies at all..................
