Tagar Mommy

Tagar didn't really take to being a mom. She's surprisingly not very protective of the pups (I expected her to be guarding them fiercely), she only growls at Togo and doesn't bother much when others man-handling her pups.

Tagar also frequently leaves the pups, tailing me around the house instead. She can't seem to gather her pups for a feed either, the first week we had to manually plug in the pups to her to get them fed.

We can't really blame her, poor Tagar's a mommy at such a young age. She does keep her pups clean and runs to them when they cry, and now she's getting better at feeding them.

Oh, but she does get up and run (sometimes with pups attached!) when she hears the sound of plastic ripping. Plastic ripping = treats. Once a pig, always a pig!

Here's more pics of the cute pups.

They're just beginning to walk with the front legs, draging the back ones along. The fattest one is a bit slow, considering he has a huge bum to lift. Haha.

Are you planning to keep all of them?

My dog is like that too. The sound of plastic is food.

They are sooo cute!! My mommy is gushing over them.

Tagar will slowly learn to be a good mommy in time to come.

The same way I learned to be a good protector who is not easily distracted by the sound of ripping plastic. ;P

All the pups have Tagar's fur color! Tagar just needs time to get used to this mothering thingy. She will get the hang of it soon. And the pups are really chubby! I guess that shows how healthy they are. Hehe!
