Here are the puppies at 2 weeks of age. If you click on them you can see if they are pending on a deposit from potential new owners or if they are available. The names are ones we "temporarily" gave them.
We had 6 puppies born on Sunday April 14th. Sadly one little guy was born not breathing, although we did get him going he did not make it through the night.
So here are our five new babies.
Sadly, our little sealed male did not make it. He wasn't not breathing when born, so after some puppy CPR, he was weak, but fighting.
He struggled to nurse and although we tried hard, he just did not make it.
All the other puppies are strong and healthy, squeaky and pushing for spots on Topeka. Again, I will wait until mid-week before contacting any of those on the waiting list, just to give them all a few days and get some pics ready.
Puppies were born early this morning! Topeka had 6 puppies. 3 boys, two fawn and one sealed and 3 girls, two fawn and one sealed. 5 of the puppies are doing really well. One of the little males is pretty weak. We will see what the next few days bring him.
Give us a few days to see how they are all doing, if you are on the waiting list I will give you a call mid-week and see if you are still interested in your spot and let you know the coloring and markings and I will also post some pics.
This is Topeka's last litter, things took a bit longer for her this time, and that is her sign to us that she will be retiring after this litter. She has had 29 puppies in 4 litters and has been an excellent mom through it all. We have never lost a puppy yet,so we are working with that little male to see if we can get him on track within the next few days.
Since I got about 3 hours of sleep in the last few days, I am going to go take a nap. I will keep u posted!
We are still waiting for the puppies to be born! Topeka is doing well, but I guess she decided they needed to bake a bit longer. As soon as we can, we will post as soon as she starts delivering...
Until then, I guess we wait, and wait...
Well, just to give everyone an update, the puppies have moved back and have dropped a bit. Topeka's due date is Thursday - at the earliest. If she wanted to wait until this weekend, I would love it! :) She's doing well, sleeping a lot.
We moved the birthing pool into the house and she has gone a few times to sniff, I can tell she knows what it is for. But the signs of nesting, where she will go in and rearrange the blankets and shift things around has not started yet. Her milk is just barely starting to come in now, but hasn't fully dropped either.
I have been taking her temp each morning and evening. When it drops to around 94 or 95 degrees she will be having puppies within 24 hrs. So far it has stayed around the 98 degree point. We are getting sooo close...
