Litter Born 27/04/2010

Sire:  Champion Shetlo Dream Lover "Arran"
Dam: Tachnamadra Timeless Gift  "Sally" 

1 week old

This is Sally's first litter and although she was a little bewildered for the first few hours and wasn't quite sure what she was supposed to do with these tiny bundles of fluff, she soon realised they were her babies and is now being the perfect mum.  They are very contented babies and at the moment all I have to do is take care of Sally and she takes care of them.  Their birth weights have increased from 6 1/2 oz, 5 1/2 oz and 4 1/2 oz to 14 1/2 oz, 13 1/4 oz and 12 oz, so they have all doubled their birth weights and are nice, plump little puppies, as can be seen from the pictures below.  There is very little for me to do at the moment apart from keeping an eye on proceedings and ensuring that the puppies are gaining weight and are kept warm, comfortable and clean.
