Back in August Petra gave birth to seven small Jack Russell puppies in the high-tech Hornbydale birthing suite. Yours truly was midwife for the day – though in the end Petra was an excellent mother and knew exactly what to do. Extra heat lamps provided as it was still winter here in Zim. In the end five pups have survived and are doing well. More ‘cute’ pictures and their names to follow (after much lively discussion, a high level board meeting and a shareholder vote).
