Puppies Born January 12th

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 annekowalczyk@me.con.

DickensxDory Puppies Due January 13th!

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 ataraxiscardigans@gmail.com w/questions.
