    Talking We've had a "delivery"!!

    Hello there!

    Well I have been keeping hush about this for a couple of days, but I had a very special delivery on Wednesday Night!! Before I launch off about it I would like to Thank Karlin, Bruce and Nicki for all keeping hush about this too and Thanks for your emotional support through that evening

    Crystal was due on July 1st, none of my girls has ever made it to her due date and Crystal wasn't about to alter that record for me either. On Monday I had a whole night of her being very restless and missing her Mom, Rosie and Sister Bella whom she usually sleeps with. Tuesday night was even worse, we had a whole night of very active bedmaking and loud panting! Here is Crystal in her nest looking very proud of herself!



    I had my first positive sign that things were progressing when miss chowhound refused her tea! Then finally at 5:05p.m on Wednesday 27 June Crystal's first puppy burst into the world!! A little girl!! Followed very closely half an hour later by a little boy!! 2 more boys were born over the next couple of hours all very good weights, girl was 7 Ounces (sorry don't do metric!) first boy was 6 Ounces and the other 2 boys were both 8 Ounces. Crystals scan had shown 4 possibly 5 pups, but that is not a reliable way of knowing how many pups there are. So I had a good feel of her tummy and thinking she had finished put her outside to toilet (OH was with her just in case!) whilst I got rid of the newspaper and put down a nice warm fleece bed instead, Crystal came back up and settled down with her babies, very proud she was too! She had held back an afterbirth however and I was watching for her to pass it so you can imagine how embarrased and shocked I was when at 1:45 a.m instead of passing the a/b I was waiting for she delivered another little girl weighing a very healthy 8 Ounces!! I have no idea where she was hiding that one! But this is not the first time I have been caught out and I daresay it won't be the last

    So here you go folks, here is Crystal with her 3 sons and 2 daughters!



    And another one, will post better views as they get older, I don't like to disturb first time mum's too much just after whelping! Little surprise girl is the one on the extreme right!



    Crystal has taken to motherhood like a duck to water, excuse messy back legs BTW Pups are nice and pink and warm and best of all quiet, unless they get knocked off a teat that is!!

    Enjoy!!

    Great looking pups! So glad to see them. No need to be embarrassed about an unexpected one. Every breeder I know, myself included, has a Bonus Baby once in a while. The ultrasounds a a good guide, but definately not totally accurate. Besides, I think the Mom's surprise us once in a while just to let us know who's really in charge .

    So are you getting any sleep yet?

    They are all so sweet but the last little one I predict will be a little spitfire...

    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.
