View Full Version : New OXENCOMBE puppies......

3rd October 2009, 10:54 AM
Well we have new puppies, 3 boys and a girl. Nice and healthy coming in at 7,8,8.5 and 9.25 ounces. Feeding incredibly well and at not even 2 full days old were underneath Mum today feeding upwards.

All Blenheim and looking good.

Will post some pics once I have worked out how to put them on the www. ?

They are on my phone at the moment but I cant seem to get them onto my computer in the same way as a digital camera.

Regards for now,

Lana decided to break her stitches, well just one small section and the entire CS wound came undone.

The Vet had decided to use a continuos 'blanket style' stitch which seemed fine at the time.

Not one I would use again ! Shall in future insist on single stitches because at least then, EVERY stitch needs to fail for the wound to open.

This particular bitch will not be put into whelp again.

Regards Mark.

5th October 2009, 10:44 PM
My what contented pups they look. There sure is many broody women on this forum. LOL


5th October 2009, 11:08 PM
I'm sorry to hear Lana has had to go through this. I thought she looked very well considering the C/section.How is she doing now and did she need more veterinary intervention?
Unfortunately this is an occupational hazard for any breeder.Thankfully she's in your excellent care and I know she's very special to you and hopefully she'll be 100% very soon.

Hope that Lana soon recovers! Any problems with pups nursing due to this problem?

Heather R

6th October 2009, 06:18 PM
Oh no, so sorry for Lana.

These pictures are wonderful. Just showed them to my husband, whose first remark was: "Oh, they are cute - you don''t want a third one, do you!?" (The last to words uttered with rising panic in his voice :D)

7th October 2009, 10:39 AM
Oh dear, how is poor Lana now? Just as well you are keeping such a close eye on her. I was thinking what good condition she looked for just having had her puppies. Please keep us informed as to how she is going.
Julie and the girls

7th October 2009, 10:54 AM
Oh no Mark, I'm sorry. :hug:

7th October 2009, 11:17 AM
She is just fine and being a great Mummy. Pups are doing well with two already approaching 15 oz and the other two over 12 oz. They are not fat just big, strong and lively.

Lana appreciates your thoughts and will take some pics today, for me to get onto the forum.

Regards Lana and puppies.

7th October 2009, 11:21 AM
Glad to hear mum & pups are doing well :)

7th October 2009, 03:44 PM

Wishing Lana makes a speedy recovery soon:p

When they do a c-section, where is the incision? I didn't see the incision site when i saw her belly picture.

10th October 2009, 07:56 PM
Congratulations Mark, that looks a nice litter of good, even sized puppies.

Sorry to hear about the section, but looks like Mum is making a good recovery and pups doing well.

Foxy looks a handsome dog.

11th October 2009, 10:25 PM
they are so sweet, hope mum makes a good recovery, bless her.

For those keen on weights. Here is the development in 10 full days.

Bitch - born 8.5 - now 19 ounces.

Biggest dog - born 9.25 - now 18.5 ounces.

Well marked dog - born 8 - now 14.75 ounces.

Smallest dog - born 7 - now 16.50 ounces.

Regards Mark.

11th October 2009, 11:37 PM
Sounds good. How old are they and what kind of weight would usually be expected? All I know is there may be a drop in weight before a gain and they should double in body weight by a certain time, my memory being what it is, I may have got that all wrong?

12th October 2009, 12:01 AM
Mine are 10 full days as of 2300 hrs tonight.

My records would seem to indicate that a puppy 6 ounces and under will normally double its weight in 7 days.

Those of 7 ounces or more may double in 7 days but normally before 10 days.

All healthy pups of mine, 6 fold minimum,their birth weight, by 4 weeks.

They reach 48 ounces between 32 and 47 days.

Touch wood, I have never had a puppy lose weight, but there again, I always give extra for the first 4 days.

It works for me so I stick to it. Some might be horrified ?

Regards Mark.

12th October 2009, 12:27 AM
What do you give them?

14th November 2009, 11:30 AM
Please feel free to view their progress at FLICKR.COM which is part of Yahoo. My ref for a search is OXENCOMBE.

You need an account to get started but its free.

All my pups have found good homes so now dreading the day when they finally leave us at approx 12 weeks, with all injections etc.

Thanks to Pauline/Sins for introducing me to FLICKR.Com, a fantastic site.

I have been so impressed by the number and real quality of people wanting healthy Cavaliers. Makes it so worth while, "we" standing up for what is right and trying to ensure that CKCS go from strength to strength.

Not all buyers ask the right questions but at least they know more having put their phone down and can then ring breeders more local to them with more knowledge and understanding.

You're welcome :)

14th November 2009, 12:52 PM
That's all very good news Mark.:)

14th November 2009, 04:31 PM
Making me broody again Mark;), they are all beautiful and look so healthy. I am sure you will miss them very much when they go to their new homes.

What lovely puppies. No wonder you are proud of them

It makes me feel really broody. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will be in the same position next year. :xfngr:

Education of puppy buyers is the key to to persuading all breeders, whether KC registered or not, that they need to health test if they want to sell their puppies.

The above two links are of our bitch puppies being considered for showing during 2010.

We had a third puppy who was actually my second pick (not that I know that much really) but she has now moved overseas to a new world, full of love and cuddles.

We miss her but are also happy for her 100%

Please view these puppies and just enjoy. Both have parents and grandparents that are SM free with no heart murmur !

Wishing you every success with them in 2010.I'm sure they'll do you proud.
