OK, they made me spill the beans on the other list, so I'll post here too. I have always felt a little funny about posting about our litters for fear it may be viewed as advertising. So, OK, here's the scoop.

Last Thursday evening our little Tri girl Pixxey had her first litter. The first was born at about 6:30 PM and the last was born around 11:30 PM. My poor baby was NOT happy when the first one was born, but there wasn't so much as a wimper with the rest. Pixxey has 6 tricolor pups, 5 girls and 1 boy :D They ranged in weight from 3.7 ounces to 7.1 ounces. We've been weighing them daily and they are growing like crazy; at this rate, they will easily double their birth weight in the 7 to 10 days rule of thumb.

Then on Saturday afternoon our Blen girl Dottie had her first litter!! The first baby was born about 2:00 PM and the last was born about 5:00 PM. Dottie has 3 blenhiem pups, 2 girls and 1 boy. Can't seem to remember exactly (I'm at my office and can't look it up) but they ranged in weight from about 7.5 ounces to 8.5 ounces. A lot bigger than Pixxey's litter because there were fewer. And just like Pixxey, they are gaining weight like crazy!

Needless to say, we are VERY proud Grandma and Grandpa. And we really hit the girl jackpot this time; seems like most people want girls, so there are going to be some very happy people now. I will try to post pictures in the next couple days.
