We are pleased to welcome the Max x Tory litter, born April 1, 2008.Ã‚Â I appologize for the delay in updates about the litter, but as you read on I think you will understand and forgive us…
I have an old breeders guidebook that recounts another breeders whelping story where they make the comment, “They just kept on popping out everywhere!”Ã‚Â To that the author remarks that if you can make this exclamation then you have had a very successful delivery.Ã‚Â Well, they just kept on popping out everywhere!Ã‚Â What a good sport Tory was during the whelping of:
At this point some breeders are shaking their heads, good sizes, but a lot of boys…and some people on our wait listÃ‚Â hoping for girls are feeling a little sad…
Did you think we were going to stop there?
Tory went on to add:
|10||Light Green RR||11:18pm||F||16oz|
And with theÃ‚Â new day, brought the only non-April fool:
By the way, this is not an April fools joke.Ã‚Â Tory had 12Ã‚Â puppies, all natural,Ã‚Â from proud papa Max.Ã‚Â It is an even split of 6 girls and 6 boys.Ã‚Â This is not Max’s record which is currentlyÃ‚Â 13 puppies.Ã‚Â We are thankful for only 12, all of whichÃ‚Â were ready to go from the start, all healthy, strong pups, no issues.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â As you can see the puppies with wavy ribbons (denoted by the RR in the collar colar) are girls and straight ribbons are boys.Ã‚Â In pictures from yesterday, the ribbons will not match up as we made some changes today to be able to distinguish easier in pictures.Ã‚Â We will get more pictures later.
We have Dr. Ann Huntington and Dr. Powell of Suffield Veterinary Hospital in Suffield, CT to thank for this wonderful batch of puppies.
Also a huge thanks to Dr. Diane Gildersleeve for several late night calls as we kept having more, and more, and more puppies and for coordinating with us andÃ‚Â Whelp Wise.
We will be very, veryÃ‚Â busy over the next few days so please be patient with us, our email and comment response may be slowed a bit.
We are also wading through the Litter Theme submissions and promise to have our favorites picked out and the poll up for voting later in the week.
ForÃ‚Â those puppy buyers on our wait list for this litter, we will not accept visitors to see the puppies until they are at leastÃ‚Â 3 weeks old.Ã‚Â This is for the health and safety of the puppies and the mother.Ã‚Â We will contact those on our wait list in the next week to schedule early visits and tentative pickup appointments.Ã‚Â We appreciate your patience in the time being, we have 12 puppies to take care of after all!Ã‚Â Please check back here for pictures and updates at least weekly and we will update the litter page shortly, after some nap time…very, very tired.
Thank you to everyone who has emailed and commented with their well wishesÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â Congratulations for the litter!
Total = 12 puppies, 6 boys, 6 girls, 1 great mom
Good girl Tory!
