We have three beautiful mamas nursing older litters here now and as both Sydney and Brinkley are sweet girls and very compliant, I wondered if they would nurse the three tiniest pups until Kiki’s milk came in. This is a risky exercise and I certainly wouldn’t try it would just any female dog…
Sydney and Brinkley were very interested AND concerned by the hungry squeaks coming from the room with Kiki’s new litter of 10 puppies.
Both Sydney and Brinkley very willingly let the the tiny babies in to the milk bar. This would be a very unusual event and it’s mainly because these mamas are so well adjusted to each other and are also carefully managed by the pack leader.
Brinkley’s brother “Bailey” is the sire of this litter, making Brinkley their real auntie!
The puppies were surprised and happy with the volume of available milk
