I work hard for a clean kennel. Cleanliness makes for happy and healthy dogs. After whelping it was out with Conficlean2. It sanitises and smells lovely.
This little fellow cannot see. He cannot hear. And he does not have a name yet. But here, in the first minutes of life, is another generation of expedition dogs.

The bond is immediate. It is an instinctive thing. To his last heart beat in old age he will never let me down. They mean so much to me that I would rather starve than see my dogs go without.
But there is no need for me to worry; help is at hand. This Little Shocker (below) is making a move as if to say, "Where's my Welpi? I want it now."
