16 PUPPIES!!!!!

I was surfing a bit today - just looking for some puppies to admire - (NO! I am not looking for another!!! ) and boy did I find some!

A very well known breeder that we are all very familiar (no names!) had the most amazing info on their website! Two of their dogs which are retiring this year came into season the same day and wala....11 puppies born between the two of them..Their third had 5 puppies 3 weeks later...

I JUST CAN"T POSSIBLY IMAGINE THAT!!

So breeders...how in the world would one handle that!!! Can you just imagine!!!!

I know another breeder that did two planned breedings at the same time and had an accidental breeding just a couple of days later. 3 bitches all due within one week! She ended up with 20 puppies. When they get to be about 7 weeks old, that had to be a crazy place. LOL!

I would much rather have two litters at the same time than to have them staggered. To have all the puppies the same age (or close) would be so much easier than to have them a few weeks or a month apart.

Still, I'm sure that breeder has her hands full with 16 when they turn into rowdy, little, barking pipsqueaks that poop all the time. Ha ha!

It probably happens quite a bit. Sedona came from a litter of 8 puppies and another female had 6 puppies three days later so, in essence, she came from a litter of 14.

How come you can't say who it is, if it's on their web site? Just curious.

That's what I thought too, Susan! Why can't we know so we can go check them out? You know how much we LOVE puppies!!

Oh, I can't even imagine what amount of work it is to clean up after so many pooping, frolicking pups!! Yikes!

I think I would be in heaven if I had 16 puppies in my house!

Okay, it might be poop heaven at times, but I think I would still love it!!

Lincoln and Sedona (and Lito!) were in that 14-puppy double litter (they were born 3 days apart). I remember our breeder pretty much had them all together which was just too cute for words! I think the puppies could catch a meal off of either mom too
