Puppies Are Here!

Dont We Look Sweet On Our Pink Sheet?

The Andy x Windy puppies were born early in the morning on Sunday, June 10th. Windy decided after getting in and out of the whelping box all day, to get down to business about 3:30am. Three hours later she had finished delivering seven puppies, five girls (in a row!) and then two boys. Breeders, you see, dont need much sleep. Well, we need it, but we dont get it! All were healthy and weighed from 13oz to 11oz.

The day before, Saturday, was the day after the great filly Rags to Riches won the Belmont. The first time a filly has done this in 102 years. To celebrate our five girls and two boys born the same weekend, we decided to make this a race horse themed litter! Of course, Tuesday, June 12th, is my birthday so it all made for a very nice birthday present.

Windy is as usual eating up a storm. She loves to run so dont get in her way when she comes barreling down the hallway to get back to the puppies. She is a great mom, keeps them nice and clean and as you can see in the picture roly-poly as well. They are already nearing one pound in weight. We will keep you updated on their progress!
