It is difficult to believe just how quickly these little blond babies grow, in just under five days they have gained more than 50% in weight. They are developing in front of your eyes growing in confidence and character. Here are some photos taken this morning of the boys –
These youngsters certainly have good appetites and we are ensuring Indi has all the nutrients and food she needs to cope with her litter. When Amber our first Golden Retriever came into our lives 15 years ago from a breeder local to us, who is now a good friend, she mentioned that for the first couple of weeks a mix of Oats, Water, Glucose, Honey and Complan be given to the mother of the pups twice a day in addition to the two meals of their normal food. It is such an energy boost and they absolutely love it. Kind of like us having porridge in the morning before the day ahead. So we have heeded to that advice and it does make a big difference. As I write this blog Indi is lapping up her helping to help her through the night with the feeding regime.
