Daisy x Thaddeus Litter!

I am so relieved that Daisy has done another phenomenal whelp - in the daytime, no less!  We both slept through the night which was such a gift.  :+)

As is common in very large litters, not all pups make it.  Sadly, her firstborn was DOA.  Animals are so intuitive.  I was right there when that little one was born and Daisy picked her up but did not tear the sack or lick the pup.  I broke the membrane and began to rub the poor little thing but she was gone.  Dogs know innately to 'leave it alone' but humans go through all kinds of techniques to keep life.  This little angel was not to be.  Daisy looked at me sadly as I took her away.

However, there was much life left in that big belly of hers!  Ten little doodles were happy to join their mom in this venture and all ten are looking great.  Tomorrow, I hope to get them all to the vet to have their dew claws removed and to be checked out.   I will be contacting everyone on my list to see if they still want to move forward with this litter. 

Here is the line up:
  • Female - Chocolate, 8  1/8 ounces born at 8:37 am
  • Male - Black, 11 ounces born at 8:48 am
  • Female - Apricot, 6  5/8 ounces born at 9:15 am
  • Male - Apricot, 7  1/4 ounces born at 9:23 am
  • Female - Chocolate, 6  1/8 ounces born at 9:59 am
  • Female - Apricot, 8  5/8 ounces born at 10:16 am
  • Male - Apricot, 7  3/4 ounces born at 10:22 am
  • Female - Chocolate, 7  1/8 ounces born at 11:21 am
  • Male - Black, 10  5/8 ounces born at 11:55 am
  • Female - Black, 7  3/4 ounces born at 12:38 pm
You will not see all the pups but there is a pile of them!

They all have exquisite coats.
