We now have peepers!

Eyes started to open yesterday! This is my first Cardigan litter where eyes opened before the 2 week mark. I didn't get a photo of the open eyes, you will just have to enjoy this group shot instead.

First Photos

First off, I want to thank all of you who have sent your good wishes and that have prayed for us. It has been a roller coaster 48 hours.

We almost lost Snickers sue to excessive blood loss yesterday. I took her back to the vet today for a check up as I was very worried about her still. We all were having flashbacks, esp. for the staff at my vet clinic.

Snickers needs tons of R & R as these pups took so much out of her. I went and bought the highest calorie dog food I could find (Abady, 800 kcal per cup - retailer was an hour away) and I am feeding her lots of yummy ice cream and yogurt with it.

This is the Special Sundae for Snickers. Abady food topped with 2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and dehydrated liver "cherry on top".

Now, on to the puppy photos!

The first born pup in the warming box accompanied by Pearl the Kitty.

The 3 blue girls. All have brindle points.

The 5 tan pointed tris. The lone boy is the furthest left.

The 3 brindle pointed tri girls.

There are no mismarks, and very few solid white collars.

A friend who raises Pembroke Welsh Corgis had a litter due today and the dam was only carrying 2-3 pups. They have offered to take some of our puppies to nurse and I think I am going to take her up on the offer, to give Snickers a break.

We have (drum roll please) - 10 girls (7 bw/tri, 3 blue merle) and 1 boy (tan point tri), via c-section.

More info later- we're exhausted!

Snickers' temperature was 98.4 at 5:30 this morning. We should have pups in the near future!

Heavily pregnant, the last few days...

Sometimes a little extra spoiling helps make eating easier when you are this far along... She will only eat when hand fed and we don't care! She deserves to be pampered!

Snickers is nice enough to share with the ancient cat, Twister. He begs worse than any dog we have.

My warming box, topped by Vera Bradley, has volunteers to keep it extra warm... The cats are addicted to sleeping on my Vera bags... they have good taste!
