Puppies are finally here! Actually, the time went pretty quick. Breeze delivered 6 puppies in just two hours time yesterday morning. She was amazing! It's her very first litter, but she seemed like a pro. There are 2 boys and 6 girls in all, ranging in weight from 6 1/2 ounces to 9 1/2 ounces.
Mom and pups are doing great and the puppies have already each gained an ounce in just one day. Of course all they do is nurse and sleep so it's pretty easy to put on the weight.
I can't wait until their eyes open and more importantly, I'm so looking forward to the puppy breath...the best scent in the world!

Today we took Tuli for her X-ray to see how many puppies she is expecting and the magic number is five. We anticipated a little more since her last litter was seven, but we're just thrilled that she is healthy, eating like crazy, and has five puppies ready to be born. We're expecting these little miracles on or about April 21st.
Breeze is ready to deliver any day now. We took her temperature a couple hours ago and she has dropped to 98.7. We'll take it again in a few hours just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, but we've been in puppy mode ever since that first reading of under 99 degrees.
We have Breeze's whelping box ready, furnished with some comfy bedding and we've shaved her belly in preparation for whelping. We blocked the perimeter of our bed underneath because that's one of her favorite places to lay and we want to make sure she doesn't decide to go under the bed to whelp her babies. That would make it pretty difficult to assist if she needs our help.
We feel truly blessed to be experiencing our first litter so early into our endeavor and can't wait to share stories and pictures with you. If you're interested in one of these little miracles...please check out the Puppy information page and click on Puppy Application.
Wishing you fluffy and furry days!
Today we took Breeze to our vet to have an x-ray to get an accurate count on how many puppies she is carrying. They took Breeze back and shot two different views and then we met with Dr. Murphy to view the x-rays. It was amazing to see all those little bones in our Breeze. We counted 6 altogether! She has really grown over the past week and seems to eat every chance she gets. We expect her to deliver in just over a week, somewhere around April 15th. Can't wait to see those beautiful puppies and are praying that Breeze has a trouble-free whelping!
Next week, we'll be taking Tuli for x-rays. We're very excited to see how many puppies she's expecting. She had seven in her last litter and we think she'll probably have around the same this time as well. I'll post again as soon as we know!
Wishing beautiful days for you,
