Time with cousins

This holidays we have been lucky enough to have Sofia come to the Bay by herself to stay and play...She had a night with Allie and 2 nights with Mum and Dad...and during the day she spent a fair amount of time down here at the Lodge...she loves for Zoe to play with her and is in heaven when playing with Zoes Sylvanian families....Zoe tries real hard to let her ,although it is rather trying for her as she really cherishes them and looks after them well! Good job Zoe ....Sofia also enjoyed the outdoors while she was here and loved joining in with the cooking of mixtures and potions cooked on the outside fire...and while we are on the subject of cousins we now have Darcy staying for a couple of nights...Carmen and Tessa and Sammy are up at Mum and Dads and Darc is here.....We will have a few adventures in the next few days I am sure...the boys all had fun in the creek this afternoon and all ended up with wet gumboots!

Sylvie's little family

Well we were all rather anxious for Sylvie when she started to have her pups...her Labour started on Monday morning about 7:30 and by 2 o'Clock she was still pushing after having had only 2 little puppies...I called the vet and he was happy to drop in on his way to Akaroa,after a quick examination and an injection to sharpen up her contractions the vet left,and within 20 mins as he expected she birthed another larger puppy that he said was coming bottom first...I waited all day for more expected at least 1 more but no she has just 3...they seem very small compared to when mittens were born....anyway here is the quick photos we got today when she went out to the go for her business
