I can stand up !! – But Walking’s still a bit of an issue

Look mum I can stand up !!

Nearly three weeks old, and now they’re quite speedy. Instead of lurching from one spot to another like a demented tortoise (or turtle for my overseas visitors) the little ones asre almost walking. It’s quite funny watching them fall over though. This one is ‘Number 1’, who aside from being bigger than the others was also the firsdt one to open her eyes.

Thank you for leaving me alone

Following on from the previous post, poor old Daisy was duly left alone, and after a few hours hard graft last night successfully delivered four bouncing bundles of mischief. Cunnrently un-named (apart from number one who seems to be lumbered with Sticky) these ladies (and one gent) are all healthy, doing well and blissfully unaware that they’re going to have the camera shoved in their faces at every opportunity over then next few weeks….

First photo of this bunch – The eldest is around three hours, and the youngest around 30 minutes.

A proper bundle of Joy

Fuck off and leave me alone……

In keeping with the animal theme, Daisy, the long suffering Shih Tzu is now feeling every day of her pregnancy. Not only is she fatter than a Mars Bar Munching salad dodger, she’s a bit miserable with it.

Only a few more days to go and there’ll be plenty more to keep her occupied than a Camera in the face.

Been a long time. Haven’t I used the nifty fifty since the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 arrived in the kit bag, so now making a conscious effort to use it more.
Didn’t really get out much further than the back garden so ended up taking another one of the dog. Pensive look from Daisy in this one which was hand held at f1.8 with a shutter speed of 1/30 at iso 1600
