Maggie is still feeding the puppies, they have milk about four times a day. Maggie generally is happy to leave them but does keep a close eye on them. So with this is mind, Melvin appears to be taking advantage of her breaks.
Today Melvin came along to check the puppies, which is something he does every day (and also throughout the day) but this time he jumped in. He soon jumped back out again when they were trying to suckle from him.
Melvin is smitten though…. so he went back in again! He takes care of “his” charges by cleaning them and generally checking them over. He can’t wait until he can play with them.
I have added photos to the gallery!
