Boxer 232. Brisbane Courier Mail 26th Jasnuary

Stand over quiet children who cause trouble mostly (6)
_ H _ L _ _
I am thinking whelps but that does not make sense

The noise made by caught animals (4)
_ E _ _
I am thinking mewl but don't see where the "caught" fits.

Quotes version admitted by funny domestic man (8,6)
_ N _ __ T _ L (if mewl is wrong so is the L)
_ O _ M _ S
I am hung up on dogmas for this word, but I can't find a G in the clue so I am probably up a tree

Help appreciated from a wet weekend in Oz

Chrisg. Thank you.
I had tried to work an anagram of domestic man and ver, but my brain could not take in the "quote" clue.

And I love shelve.

But now I have a problem with my mewl and
mule

The noise made by caught animals (4)
_ E _ D

Can you guide me to the end of the puzzle?

could be Herd - sounds like heard (caught)

I hope you are not going to be affected by the floods - I have been watching the news coverage here in the UK..sounds awful

Thanks again

That is probably the best I can do. At least the parsing is acceptable. Boxer's clues are occasionally marginally off the money. But he/she tends to set a good puzzle.

I am about 160k away from the rising water, but have concerns for family and friends.

Cheers
