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.  Pictures will be posted as soon as I am able to upload them.  I tried tonight, but they will not upload (yes my website bill is paid in full each year in May)  :)
