Litter November 9, 2007

Around the birth

Just like the first litter of Blaze, she did not show a huge temperature drop. And also just like last times, Blaze hardly shows any signs of an upcoming delivery. We are used from our other ladies that they start way before time with restless behavior, panting, scratching, digging etc, but Blaze doesn't. Only when the contractions are really there and getting heavier, she is taking more action. But thankfully we know this behavior so we have not lost her out of sight for one single second, so she could not fool us in anway.

Blaze was also so very nice to have a delivery during daytime, we hope we will always have it this way! Being the experienced mum she is, she helped perfectly each puppy into this world, removed sacks, umbillical cord and afterbirth without any problem and cleaned and cleaned and cleaned... Very special is the fact that just in the litter of Blaze of which our Jolie is a member of, these red/white puppies are the light reddish colour which is lighter than Blaze herself and also lighter than what we are used of with the litters of our Wish. But we know the colour will darken more and more when they turn older and they will have all wonderfull black pigmentation on their noses and very dark eyes.

We are extreme gratefull and happy with these five wonderfull and gorgeous puppies which Blaze has given us as being her final litter. Ofcourse we will enjoy them extremely and have lots of fun with them.
