View Full Version : We've been keeping secrets!! New Arrivals!!

20th October 2007, 05:57 PM
Hello All!

Okay, I 'fess up I've been holding back on you all! :oops:

My Tri-colour girl Cherry was mated recently to a Ruby lad, I have long wanted a wholcolour and am on some lists but most breeders keep the best girls back for themselves and rightfully so! So I used a Ruby who carries a lot of Blenheim in his background and is similarly bred to Cherry! She conceived and had a easy pregnancy, nothing fazes her anyway!!

On the 1st October, and with almost a week left to go I was called to school to pick up Josie who was poorly, I was gone all of 15 minutes, so you can imagine my shock when I walked in and Cherry was delivering a puppy!! :eek: My very first Black and Tan!! 20 Minutes later we got a Ruby and a further 2 hours later another Black and Tan! Although quite early they all were fine and were very big weights, the first pup was 7 Ounces, the Ruby was 10 (that is BIG!) and the 2nd B/T was 9 Ounces!! All 3 are boys!! (Darn, I wanted girls, back to the drawing board on that part!)

They are all doing extremely well, I have never had a litter gain weight so easily whilst appearing to barely feed at all!

A few pics for you, This is Cherry with the boys at 3 days old


First born B/T "Barnaby" just a couple of hours old here


Ruby lad, "Roly" also just a couple of hours old here


Second B/T boy "Buster" again just a couple of hours old here!

And here they are this afternoon, now 19 days old and with their eye's open!! Awww, sweet!!







Enjoy................. :lotsaluv:

20th October 2007, 07:58 PM

:w*w:cl*pCongratulations Cathryn, to both you and Cherry, all 3 are stunning, but have to admit.....we are just in love with Buster :l*v::l*v:.....We're just off to order you that RV we were talking about right now;)

20th October 2007, 09:09 PM
oh my god they are so cute!!

20th October 2007, 09:36 PM
They are so adorable...I love barnaby. Cherry looks like a very good mom.

20th October 2007, 10:06 PM
Ahhhh i love puppy pics.Well done mum.

20th October 2007, 10:12 PM
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!! How cute are they ....... I agree with Karlin that Buster looks like trouble, love him. Barnaby has the sweetest face. Roly is the perfect name for the precious ruby.. You are so lucky to get puppy kisses whenever you want. Judy and Dixie

Cherry says Thank You for the lovely comments about her son's! :lotsaluv: as she is now 5 and a half this is her final litter now. Cherry is what can only be described as "in your face" she is just "full on" and a lovely dog to be around, the father of the pups "Fergus" has a nice sweet laid back temperament, just hope they take after him!!

The pups have stayed pretty much the same size order, Barnaby is still the smallest and Roly and Buster are just a pair of great big fatties! :lol: I have to admit to having a soft spot for Barnaby, I think mostly because I just saw him just sliding out and grabbed him and started resus right away, I really thought at that moment I was going to lose him, he was gasping a lot, but he pulled through and is as healthy as his brothers.

It is odd seeing my tri with a litter of whole-colours though, and for the first time in my breeding career I can claim to own all 4 colours!!
It hasn't been easy keeping quiet about this lot I can tell you, a few folks knew about them from the start (You all know who you are! ;) ) Thank You for keeping my secret with me! I just wanted to wait until they had their eye's open before I introduced you all first!!!

They are all getting little characters already and of course Josie is cuddling them already, she was playing her guitar to them the other night, I hadn't the heart to tell her they can't hear her for another week yet! :lol:

Will keep you updated on their progress, I am very pleased with them even though I didn't get the girl I wanted :( Main thing is Cherry is fine and the boys are all doing well, time will tell on anything else!!

:w*w:cl*pCongratulations Cathryn, to both you and Cherry, all 3 are stunning, but have to admit.....we are just in love with Buster :l*v::l*v:.....We're just off to order you that RV we were talking about right now;)

Brilliant!! Can you make it a Dark Grey Paint job please?? Love that colour!! ;) :lol: Buster says he'll try not to have any accidents in it on the way up to you!! :lol: ;)

Oh they are coming on a treat Cathryn. Cherry serves up gold top milk for sure ;) (full cream milk for those not familiar with gold top). If I had to choose, you know who I'd go for, Cherry! Of the pups, I like Barnaby best because his eyebrows don't frown, if you know what I mean!

Shame on you, keeping secrets like that!

Those are 3 really cute pups! I especially like Roly, as I have always had a soft spot for rubies. Too bad you didn't get the girl you were hoping for, but you have 3 nice, healthy puppies and a healthy mom.

21st October 2007, 11:05 AM
So sweet,big contrats to you all.Id have never been able to keep a secret like that lol id have screamed the house down telling people.I love Buster looks like a cheeky little fella.Shame you didnt get a girl like you wanted but there all just wonderful.
I too want another female pup (i know Mollies only 14 weeks lol)So we decided that when mollie is 3 years we will allow her to have one litter and keep a girl if one comes along.
Good luck and keep us posted with lots of photos xxx
