Ellie Mae easily delivered a total of 6 healthy puppies, 5 females, and 1 male. The sable color is the male, of the females, there is 1 piebald and 4 blondes of varying shades. All the puppies in this litter are reserved.
I do apologize for not getting this post up sooner but we have had a lot going on in the past week. Besides Ellie Mae having the puppies, our other bitch, Daisy, is in heat, so she has had to be separated from Cooter. Ellie Mae is the typical protective mother and wont let Daisy in the bedroom, so we have been shuffling dogs around the house using gates and doors and in and outside all weekend, because we are not breeding Daisy and Cooter this heat. We also had a death in my husband's family late last week, so we were visiting with family, going to the funeral and all that as well.
Mother & babies are doing great. Ellie Mae looks fantastic and has bounced back with her full energy and great body condition, and she is proving to be a wonderful devoted mother to her puppies! She has done amazing on the raw diet and of course, the puppies will be weaned to a raw diet in a few weeks and will all be going to wonderful homes that will continue with the Natural Rearing protocols.
