Kitty and Pups
I took Kitty's temp last week and it was 100.2 Normal is 101 last evening it was 99.4 when it gets down to 98.6 she should have her first pup within 24 hours. Well, the count down is over.....
blizzard got things going!
Well we are snowed in with 15 inches of beautiful, sparkling snow. Our final puppy count is 9. Five boys & Four girls - all chocolate, shiny, and very strong. The first pup was born at 7:22 pm Thursday March 14th. The last pup was born at 2:22 am Friday March 15th. Seven hours for 9 babies; nature is amazing.
you can see, the pups fit in the palm of your hand. I won't be able to
tell personalities until about 4 weeks of age. They change weekly. Eyes
open at about 7 - 10 days. Ears open by 2 weeks. Toddling about at 3 weeks.
The pups are 3 weeks old now. They bark, growl, play, advanced toddle, give lots of kisses, and a few are trying to climb out of the pen. We are supposed to finally warm up next week to the 60's. I will get them out to the whelping pen, inside my bigger kennel, in the garage. They will have more room to play.
They are starting to get their teeth in and I have already cut all their
front nails (72) so they don't scratch up Kitty. The boys collars are
3 different shades of blue, 1 green, and 1 black with a reflector middle.
The girls collars are pink, purple, red, and multicolor.
These pups were all spoken for before they
I highly recommend these three books to everyone who
buys my pups, or loves labs.
