    Fey really didn't want to get into bed with the puppies last night, so tonight I have made her a bed downstairs, pups will be 8 weeks on Monday and to be fair Fey has been an awesome mum,

    Fey is fast asleep in her new bed pups are fast asleep right here :)

    does this seem right for her to not want to feed or even sleep with the pups now?

    Yes the mother dog wont want the pups feeding off her anymore, those teeth can be very sharp. She will probably go in to sleep with them now and again, but not as much as she did when they were small.
    can wait for my puppies to get to 4 weeks when they are walking around awww bless I love puppies and dogs. xx

    Storm lost interest in trying to feed quite early on but the pups didn't she has never been stopped from going in to them more stopped herself and now very very occasionally lets one feed but even the pups aren't bothered really, more for comfort. She gave up feeding before they damaged her too much :D

    Having said that she knows exactly where her pups are, stands guard over them (even if you think she isn't) and watched like a hawk if someone she doesn't really know picks one up, she also sleeps outside the pen they sleep in to keep an eye on them.
