It has been a very challenging week because of the intense heat and we have had to keep the pups in the kitchen on the tiled floor to keep them cool.
I have also realised how closely related the pups are to their wild ancestors in the way they instinctively seek shelter from the sun and have developed their own nest underneath the oil tank in our garden.

I am finding the raising of my first litter an incredible and emotional experience and I am not looking forward to seeing the pups going on their way in 10 days time.
Finally I will sign off with some pictures of the pups ability to sleep anywhere at any time.
