Stella delivered 10 beautiful, healthy puppies on the 5th July 2016. 4 black girls 3 chocolate girls 2 black boys 1 chocolate boy. Mum and babies are all doing really well.
This little girl cracks me up! Less than 24 hours old and she's showing the true lab spirit of "find the food regardless of how hard it is or what it takes" !

The puppies got to meet a "little person" today. I'm not sure who had more fun the puppies or Molly!
This little guy is just finding life so hard! He really wants to eat but he's just so tired. I love the little growl he gives when his brother tries to push him out of the road and get to the food!
Another mani-pedi today and wormed again. Also thier first taste of dry dog food, I have been soaking it in water up until now.

Finally we have a sunny day to play outside. The puppies are growing rapidly, figuring out the hard way that they now have tiny, needle sharp teeth. They are at an awesome age. So much fun!

I can't believe the puppies are already 4 weeks old! More worm medicine yesterday and this time they were not quite as co-operative although no-one spat it out which was good.
Their world is growing every day and you can see from the video they are starting to venture further out of the "nest". Not yet braving the muddy lawn or full exposure but with the weather as it is you can hardly blame them!

The puppies have settled really well into the nursery. They love the wood shavings, they are so warm and dry.
They're eating 3 meals a day from me although Stella comes and goes as she pleases. She sleeps with them at night.
Little tails are starting to wag when they hear out voices and they are starting to move out of the kennel to toilet.
All 12 puppies are growing beautifully. Healthy and happy!

Already three weeks old. Now they are starting to look and act like puppies.
Milly the Jack Russell likes to help look after them.
Little tails are starting to wag and toilet training is going well. They're now having 3 meals a day from me much to Stella's delight and although they still have very limited sight they are moving around the laudry easily.
We're all having lots of fun

Yesterday the puppies had their first taste of some solid food.
There was no doubting they are little Labradors by the way they hoovered down the beef mince!
There was puppies and mince going everywhere!
This little one slept through the commotion. I had to wake him up and put his nose in the food but then he was off too. He's one of the bigger boys well over a kilo now.
This little girl figured out a good way to stop anyone else getting any!

The puppies are 2 weeks old already!
Time for thier first taste of worm syrup. Most of them didn't mind it at all.

So all puppies needed thier nails trimmed so that was a two day job! 18 little nails each = 216 nails trimmed!! That's a lot of little nails scratching at poor Stella so really appreciated the effort I'm sure!
Then after the nail treatment a pretty new collar.
