So proud of Shasta for a fine natural delivery. We needed a little help on puppy number 2. His shoulders were so big we needed a vet to pull while Shasta was pushing (contracting). Very brave hard working mother! The puppy had no problem with this because when he got out he was very active and had a good set of lungs and sqiggled right over to Mom and latch on to nurse. Shasta's puppies were all around 11 oz except that big male that got stuck at 15.1 oz. They have all gained over an oz in the first day.
I will take pictures as soon as Richard finishes the taxes today.
Cassie's litter is doing great. They have doubled their weight in a week. This is very normal and shows that they are all healthy and thriving.
Keno and Shasta had 5 puppies born Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009 3 boys and 2 girls.
