Life Is All About Puppies

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Friday, January 29, 2016,
Our lives are all about puppies right now.  I awaken at 5 AM to feed them with moms and then get ready for work about 6:30 AM when my husband rises.  He stays with them off and on until about noon, when my daughter rises and watches them until 3 PM.  I am home by 5 PM and watch them until bedtime, about 10 PM, when my husband or daughter will take over.  My daughter is a night owl and she stays with them until about 3 AM and I am back up at 5 AM.  And so it goes for the their first three week...

Nearly a Week Old

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Sunday, January 24, 2016,
The puppies are growing so fast and I am taking additional pictures.  They pictures are very cumbersome to post now, and hopefully will improve when the host repairs their issues.  Until then, I will slowing plug away at posting pictures.

The first set was right after birth.  I wanted you to see your little one as they entered the world, so if you see fluids, it is the birth process, not an injury.  They all coo for mom when they smell her now and they stay close to keep warm.  The pups won't ...

Puppy Update

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Saturday, January 23, 2016,
Moms and puppies are doing very well.  My husband is with them all day, I am all evening, my daughter covers until 3 am when I get up and tend to them and then leave for work at 7 a.m.  My husband then takes over for much of the day again.  This is our life for their first week to 10 days.  Then moms are ready for short breaks and life becomes a little bit more normal as they will again sleep with us and we will get up once in the night.

They eat and sleep and that is about it.  It is amazing ...

And We're Here Round Two

Posted by Brenda Hedden on Friday, January 22, 2016,
A day after Asia gave birth, Jamaica gave birth to 13 beautiful puppies.  We are all still recovering from the lack of sleep, but they are all well worth the weary hours.  Moms are doing very well and pups are already growing.  We have a lot of pictures, but Yola's javascript is running continuously and not allowing us to upload pictures.

They just sleep and eat, and are very mobile.  It always amazes me that prior to birth, they are cramped in a small space and then come out so mobile that th...

We are on our way

 The first puppy has arrived. A beautiful brown boy with white paws, a white-collar, white forehead streak, and a white tip on his tail. He was born at 10:00 PM on the 17th.  He is nursing well and mom is very attentive. All is quiet awaiting his siblings....

Siblings took another 3 hours, but they all came out healthy and beautifully marked.  We have five males and five females, five are black with white markings, two are half white and half black and three are brown with white markings.  Pic...
