On January 12, 9 puppies were born via c-section. 8 boy puppies, and 1 girl puppy. 5 brindles, 4 reds. I asked the vet, “are you sure there is not a 10th puppy that is a girl? The x-ray did look like 10.” NOPE! But they are all doing great, gaining weight very well, and Dory is again being a super mom for the last time (no more litters for fertile myrtle).
The puppies basically eat ALL day. One extra big boy is close to the 2lb mark yesterday at day 6; he was close to 1lb at birth. No wonder Dorh was so big! Other birth weights were between 12-14 oz.
I am accepting a couple of more deposits for this litter. Email me if you are interested in a DickensxDory baby, at email@example.com.
This week I took Dory in for an x-ray, which easily shows TEN puppies. WOW! Although based on her size I am not surprised. Her c-section is scheduled for Tuesday, January 13th.
Since we had initially expected about 6, we now have additional spots on our puppy list. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for information, or just fill out a puppy application and I will tell you about our process of how we raise our puppies and how we choose our new homes for our puppies as well.
So, Dory had an ultrasound and she is PREG! BISS BIS GCH Twinroc Santa Paws PT x GCH Raglans Just Keep Swimming CGC are expecting 4-6 puppies on January 17th. I am so excited we had the opportunity to breed her to “Dickens”, an outstanding example of the breed. Dickens is certainly a once in a lifetime dog, and I’m excited to see what this litter will bring. Brindles and reds expected as both Dory and Dickens have produced both brindles and red. Both parents are full health tested (please see “Planned Litters” page”). We have a couple spots left on the list for this litter. If you are interested in a DickensxDory puppy, please fill out the puppy application on our website or email me at email@example.com w/questions.
