My intention to post regulrly, every week failed miserably.
First there were the maps to complete for my next walking book
Then on 2nd November Pearl had 6 puppies,Pearl's 3rd litter next day
Pearl was much more relaxed than I was. This was primarily due to the fact that on hearing she was going to have puppies, people reagaled me stories of puppy mishaps and how lucky I was to have had such successful litters.
This litter has been a surprise.
Pearl was very big in the days just before she gave birth.
Either she was going to have a big litter or big puppies.
I hoped it would be a big litter as big puppies could be a serious problem.
As it turned out she had quite a small litter;
6 puppies all of a similar size
all dogs(no bitches)
and a range of colour from deep fox red to very pale
(her previous litters were mostly fox red with just one pale one)
|The litter of 6 all lying on top of each other|
Having a litter all of the same sex is not unusual.
However this has created a problem for for me.
The reason I had a third litter is to keep the darkest bitch.
No bitch. So what to do?
It is not possible for Pearl to have another litter.
So I am going to keep the darkest boy.
This is going to be a new chapter;
A novel and challenging experience.
Whether or not I will have another litter
only time will tell..
I have no idea what to call him.
There is a bottle of wine for the best one.
Here are some photos of the litter when they were 8 days old
