GREYHOUND PUPPIES
18th May 2008
3 days old

Mum lay in her own 'maternity unit', which is sterile to give the puppies a good start at this very vulnerable time. They lay on lots of spotlessly clean bedding with heat lamps above to keep them warm. Whilst they are so tiny a wooden frame has been placed around the sleeping area so as to prevent Mum from laying against the wall and accidentally trapping one behind her.

The puppies at this stage weigh about 20 ounces each, have their eyes closed, their little pink feet will eventually become white and they can't walk so they crawl or 'slither' their way around. With their little bellies full of milk and being the colour they are they reminded me of three little velvety moles crawling around!
Mum was just perfect as her babies climbed all over her searching for milk and squeaking to communicate with her. Mum didn't mind us being there and each time her owner turned a pup to face the camera the puppy did a 'U' turn determined to crawl back towards the smell of her mum, warmth and safety. The only time they happily lay away from her, or on top of her was when their little bellies were full of milk and for the time being they were content.

Bella will probably become a fawn Greyhound.

Eva will probably become a blue brindle Greyhound who has a very tiny white tip on the end of her tail, all the toes on her front left foot are white and there are signs she will have a white mark on the side of her nose.

Ella will also probably become a blue brindle Greyhound and has a much larger white tip to her tail. Her front left foot and one toe ¼ white and her two middle toes are ½ white.
