So much for uneventful days! Dixie was due on June 21st, but she blessed us with 4 puppies on June 19th. She could have waited until a bit later than 4:30am, but when nature calls..... She birthed 2 girls and 2 boys, all of them over 5oz! She has been a great Mom. All her pups are gaining weight and she stays in the pens with them without a complaint!
Then Glory, not to be outdone by Dixie, decided to have her pups two days early on June 25th. She waited until a respectable 11am to begin birthing-unfortunately, she waited until Tal was outside talking with the roofer (yes, we have a leaky roof!) but luckily, being the great Mom she is, had the first pup all cleaned up when he walked in 15 minutes later! She then started popping out pups-girl, boy, boy, girl, girl, --are we done yet? We think so.... long pause (like 2 1/2 hours) then she has to go outside to potty and no sooner than she does, she pops out another girl! Poor Tal has to scoop her and the pup up, fly into the house, and get her cleaned up! All went well and all the pups are doing good. We will be watching them very carefully the next few days as they range in size from 3.4oz to 4.5oz. Looks like a lot of smaller pups! Stay tuned for more updates!
