Maggie/Stora Puppies Are Here!

Maggie whelped 4 beautiful puppies last Sunday. Three girls and one boy! Maggie is black and white and Stora is red so I had no idea what we’d get. I actually figured all black and white because it is a dominant color combination. But it turns out three have more red than black! The fourth, a much smaller little girl, is black and white like her mama.

Maggie’s puppies at about 3 hours old.

Maggie wins the Pontiac Kennel Club’s Winners Bitch May 26, 2016 under Judge Betsy Dale in Kalamazoo Michigan.


This is the handsome Stora, owned by Lorrie Jergensen, in Punta Gorda Florida.




This is our little boy…second in the birth order.

First born, this little girl is a pretty red sable and white.

Never underestimate this girl’s size. She latched onto Maggie’s nipples right away and I predict will catch up to her siblings in no time! Black and white.


Last, but not least, is our pretty red and white girl.    

Puppies at 5 days old. Look how they have already filled out!

Fern and Opie are Parents!

Our beautiful Fern whelped 5 healthy, plump  babies October 14! All are gaining well (they actually started at a healthy 7 ounce average!) and actively moving around the whelping box. We have one girl and four boys. The girl is the white one below with the tan and white boy.

My thanks to my friend, Kathy Ambler, for letting Opie to sire such beautiful kids. I know they will be gorgeous!
