DOB: 14/04/19 Mother: Dolly Father : Likely to be Bleary
Most newborns usually arrive between the months May and June and a few in exceptional cases at the earliest by the end of April ( for your reference Bocky’s birthday is 27th April, that of Spocky is 5th May, Baty is also 5th May ) it is very unusual for a baby to come in the middle of April which would imply that Dolly was pregnant with Pucky before most of the males had even gone into heat ! Hallelujah !) My suspicion is that Pucky was born at least 10-14 days preterm that is he was a preemie ! he was never active like other newborns I have seen in the past, he was just nursing almost non-stop and never had I seen him for once showing much interest to his surroundings. In fact my very few brief glimpses of him left me with the impression that he wasn’t well at all. Pucky is Dolly’s sixth baby, and a boy again in a row and since her obstetric record probably began well before I arrived at the scene I suspect that Pucky could easily be her 9th or 10th baby and it is quite conceivable that she is beginning to run into trouble with each pregnancy at her advanced age. Let’s hope it’s nothing more serious than a preterm baby next time !
Pucky just wasn’t as alert and active….
But Dolly’s such a good patient mum she just let Pucky nurse almost continuously for at least the first 2 weeks of his life and was always seen carrying him wherever she went. He was never left alone and I think her sheer dedication had overcome the odds. After 2 weeks Pucky definitely has perked up and by the third week he’s almost like a normal baby, inquisitive, daring and is beginning to walk and run as we speak ! Well done Dolly !
But he’s steadily getting there….
I think by the 3rd week the odds are in his favour….
