Litter May 17, 2007

Around the birth

It seems there is a curse going on in our kennel at this moment. We have had already the experience with the litter of Bizzy in 2006 while seeing 6 puppies on the ultrasound only 3 were born, this time the same thing happened. We have no idea at all why this has happened and will contact some specialists soon to see if they can help us with all our questions.

About one week before the expected delivery date (counting from the first mating) we have started taking the bodytemperature of Cupid. Just like the previous two times, her temperature only shows a little drop and a speedy delivery after this drop.

The birth

End result:

Time Gender Colour Weight

13:10 bitch blue/white 410 g
14:17 male blue/white 410 g
15:30 male black/white 420 g

This time the disappointment about the small litter is pretty big. Both Cupid and Bond have proven in the past to produce normal litters and with several good matings, we had no reason to expect something else this time. After the disappointment has flown away a little bit, all what rests is a feeling of proudness and joy about our gorgeous trio. They are nicely marked and are having very good weights. All three puppies found their way to the milkbar pretty fast after being born and with so many to choose from, they will be excellent taken care of by their experienced mum.
