Puppies Have Arrived!

Maggie delivered six healthy puppies starting at 3:30 yesterday morning. Three girls and three boys!

They are nursing well and holding even on their weights which is good for day 2.

It was one of the easiest deliveries I have ever “helped” with. Maggie did everything! Very little pre labor and almost no discernible contractions. All are black and white as you can see in the photo. More to follow!

I want to give a special thanks for Kevin and Sandy McCabe who not only bred Maggie’s mother but also bred Nelson, the sire of this litter.

 

Puppies are Coming!

My Maggie (GCH CH Artwryks at Carneys Paradise Garden) and Nelson (GCH CH Heartlands Liberty For All) owned by Kevin and Sandy McCabe are expecting May 23. The x-ray below shows 6 puppies. You count the backbones!

Stay tuned!

At the Vet

This is Cinnamon. She’s going to live in Michigan.

This is Boston. He’s going to live 2 hours north of us in Florida.

Puppies took a field trip Friday to my vet. They were microchipped, got their first immunization for DHPP. They were thoroughly checked over, had a fecal exam,  got the bordetalla vaccine and dewormer. Everyone passed with flying colors! But they were exhausted when they returned home. Here are some pix.

This is Mattie. She’s going to stay with me for a while.

This is Foxy. She’s going to live in Michigan.

The vet techs loved the puppies! What’s not to love?

This is Twist. He’s going to live in Chicago.

At the vet. Check out Boston on the far right getting ready for a sneak attack!

 

 

 

 

Attacking the Fox

Puppies will be 8 weeks old this weekend! They are growing so fast!!

Here is a video I took yesterday of them attacking an unstuffed fox. I like these toys because there is no stuffing to rip out and accidentally ingest.

If you look closely you can see the fox under the pile of puppies!
