    Ok, he'll be 7 weeks old this Friday.

    (Please don't tell me that it's advised he stay with his mother until he's 8 weeks, I know this) :)

    P.S. He looks a good size to me.

    Well I think we'll keep giving him it until he's 8 weeks old, which is just over a week away.

    Both my pups came to me at 8 weeks old completely weaned off milk, although I did use goats milk in weetabix, porridge or scrambled eggs that they had for their breakfast. As adults the occasionally have goats milk as a treat :p
