We have babies!!! As many of you know, both my mother & myself have been involved with Cavaliers for 24 years, and our "kennel" (I just don't like that word... as we don't have a kennel - the dogs sleep in bed with us!) is definitely a family affair. Well, I received a phone call from my mother Tuesday afternoon letting me know that Sophie's temperature had dropped 2 degrees, and to fly down! (Sophie's last x-ray showed 6 puppies, and she wanted another set of experienced hands). It was good that we had 2 sets of hands - as I think we would have lost a puppy or two if we didn't, as there were a couple that needed a little "jump-start" (they weren't breathing) at the same time Sophie was delivering other pups! Both my mother & I are mentally & emotionally spent, but everything turned out just fine!
To make a very long (& exhausting) story short, we have 6 beautiful babies!!!
3 boys, 3 girls - 3 tris, 3 blenheims (what are the odds of that!?)
Here are some pictures of the brand new babies... so brand new they're still wet in some of the pictures!
Keep your eyes peeled! I'll be posting more pictures as they get older! We can all watch them grow up together!
ENJOY, and thanks for looking!
The "herd" at 1 hour old:
I am soooooooo hungry!
Ooooooo... what's that? Whatever it is - I'll suck on it!
Hey, it fits!
Hmmmm..... I'm not getting any milk! What's the deal!?
