Ricky’s tough-looking-but-really-a-sweetheart Al had a litter of pups the other week.
12 in total.
1 died, one got taken by something creature of prey (this IS the country…) and Ricky knocked 3 on the head.
Only 8 teats, y’see.
They get transported around in a kennel (lined with red carpet from the BNZ in Nelson) on the back of Ricky’s ute for the next couple of weeks until they’re big enough to start crawling over the edge
