Busy Day!

Nike and Tibi both had their litters yesterday.

Pam was up all night with Nike Thursday/Friday night. Nike was in some distress by first light, and we headed to the Vet. I was driving, with Pam and Nike in the back of the WRX hatchback. A car flashed their headlights at me, and by the time I passed the Hwy Patrolman beside the road, I had slowed down to 72.

He saw Pam and Nike in the back, and asked me what was wrong. I told him quickly, and saying he was a dog person too, to head on but not to go more than 5 mph over.

At the Vet's the question was C-section or shot of Oxytocin. Pam had already palpated Nike, and straightened out the puppy before we left home. Pam thought that Nike had just gotten too tired to push the puppy out. Our Vet palpated again, and said the puppy was reversed, which was a good thing if it was in distress. Pam said to try the shot. Robert, our Vet, put us in a back room, and within 10 minutes Nike gave birth to a boy.

If the boy had been head first, there was a much greater chance that he would not have made it. This is the same breeding that produced Java, known here, and the boy was the same color as Java. He was immediately scrambling to get into nursing position, with no worries about anything.

In another 10 minutes, Nike gave birth to a girl, and deciding that everything was going normally now, the five of us headed back home. At home, everything went fine, and Nike ended up with a litter of three.

Later that afternoon, Tibi produced her litter of three Red puppies sired by Red with no trouble at all.

There are going to be some disappointed people on our waiting list. We were all expecting more than 6 puppies.

This morning, all the puppies have gained from a half to a whole ounce. I think they have all nursed for the whole time since they've been born. The Moms are Very proud of them.

Pictures after we get caught up with sleep.

What a night! Congratulations to all! I am so happy that the puppies arrived safely, and that you and Pam got the male from Breeze and Nike that you were hoping for.
I hope you are able to get some much deserved solid sleep!

That's a lot of action for one day And a litter of red puppies too, fun! Are they out of the red boy you just recently started showing? I hadn't realized he was already 2.

Looking forward to pictures.

Sophie, Mario, and Nino.

They are "BY" the red boy Red. They are "Out Of" Tibi, a Gold Sable. Tibi's Mother is the red color, and Tibi carries the little "e". I can't remember if Tibi carries two copies of the little e, but Pam's sleeping right now, so I can't ask her. Red, of course, carries two copies.

Red was barely old enough to have all his health testing verified just before Tibi came into heat.

My mistake. Still a newbie at all of this, but I do love learning the genetics behind everything, especially when it comes to color. Both of you get some rest now

How lucky! I was thinking he was under a year when he got the UKC BIS, but I must have been remembering incorrectly.

Edit: Hm...just looked at your site. It appears Red is just over a year? I didn't realize you bred dogs without full health clearances. Are elbows, hips, and LCP no longer important tests?

Congratulations! How wonderful that Pam is so knowledgeable about breeding, and when a momma needs some help. Great teamwork.

(Glad the policeman was a dog lover, too!)
