Verdae Turns 2 Weeks Old!

Is it true? Could it be? Is this little bundle of fur a long coat? Time will tell!

Happy Birthday, Verdae!

The first two are out!

And then there were three...
And the final count is 6! 5 hansom boys & one lovely girl.
First born, "blue-collar boy", now known as Verdae.

First puppy was a tight fit and required a little help coming into this world clearing the way for his littermates (thanks, Verdae!). All the rest were delivered very easily with only a few contractions. Her quickest time was 1 hour between pups and the longest 5 hours. The norm was every 3 hours. She wasn’t stressed and slept in between each puppy. Maybe she had such easy labor because she took long breaks between each pup?

Vedae's First Picture.

Radiograph of the soon-to-be born V-litter,  VA Rocco vom Mittelwest SchH3 KKL1 "Rocco" x V U-CH Alta-Tollhaus Cadence SchH1 KKL1 "Cadence".

6 or 7 babies!
After 15 hours of panting and general pre-birthing drama, finally, Cadence got down to business, although very slowly... The puppies should be coming very soon!

Cadence just prior to whelping.
