Piper's litter is one week old.

For a litter as large as it is, they are all doing quite well. I know I will be introducing baby gruel to them as soon as possible to help Piper so they are not depending solely on her for their nutrition. She is keeping them clean and content at this time.

Oddly, not one pup in this litter will be curly like their dad, Dublin. Some have his color but not his curls. They should all be wavy fleeces. :+)

Enjoy the pics!

A PERFECT video on kids and puppies/dogs. Why watching your pet's face and body language is SO important!

Please highlight and post to Browser whether you have children or not!

They DO speak to you but you must listen carefully to hear it.

Piper began whelping at 3:35 am.

Whew, it has been a long night of labor but she is chugging along now. The first three were born in a half hour! Then two more in another half hour.  Now that the sun is up, Piper has delivered eight (make that TEN) pups so far - 6 apricots and 4 blacks. Six of them are males and four are females. Happily, both colors are also in both genders.  :+)

I PRAY Piper is done with 10 gorgeous pups! She ate a pile of raw chicken necks, along with all the placentas and vanilla ice cream for dessert. She is happy, content, full and so are her pups.

A proud momma!

Piper has wrapped her babies in black furry love! 
It is quite the variation in the apricots from cream to almost red!

Piper is in early stage labor!

Frequent pottying is one of the first signs of an impending whelp, so that sign began at 3:30 this morning - yawn! Next early stage is a 'restlessness' followed by a slow, constant panting. We are at the restless/panting portion.

Update: Not much has changed, still panting - I expect it will be an all nighter.

Keep checking!

I am pleased as punch to state that according to Piper Moon's x-ray, she should be having 8 or 9 pups!

This is a total surprise to me and not expected at all! I didn't even think she was that big, but she sure 'feels' heavy.  We should have puppies by this coming weekend.  :+)  She certainly is feeling pregnant and a bit 'pathetic and needy'.

This shot shows how soft and luscious her coat is. It also shows her big belly!

DAISY MAE DUKE has arrived and is deeelightful!

A new addition to the Annabelle Doodle family!

This cutie pie will need a local guardian home who will take her to obedience classes and enjoy the antics of an adolescent girl. She knows what a dogie door is for and is almost potty trained but needs a bit more 'fine tuning' in that area. Daisy is 6 months old. I would love to find a guardian home that has a fenced yard and responsible children. Daisy is a sweet, loving girl and has a gentle demeanor.

Daisy Duke will be on the small side - around 28 lbs. and 17 inches at maturity. Her wavy fleece coat is soft, flowing and non-shedding. Please inquire if interested.

Beautiful conformation.

Daisy has a soft presence and gentle face.

Will you play with me? There is some mischief however!

Sitting pretty.
