1st pup born (about 6:30 a.m.) - A Red Male!
Scarlett went into labor around 12:30 a.m.
2nd pup born - A Red Female
(Yes, that's in the car! The boys had a soccer camp to go
to that started at 8:00 a.m. -- so, we loaded the kids and
mom up. She had the second pup before we left the house!)
3rd pup born - Red Female
4th pup born - Red Male
My little girl and I kept checking in on mom and pups while
boys were at play! On average, Scarlett had her pups about
1 every hour. This has been her pattern every litter.
The first four -- All reds.
BTW: Having them in the car was an absolute first!!
That is what a busy mom of three homeschooled kids
does - IMPROVISE! Threw the office floor mat in the
back of the SUV and voila - worked perfect!
Look close at this picture --
Pups 5 and 6 were both Black Females.
Mom looks happy as a show of relief as the
contractions are low in this picture.
7th pup born - Red Female
After she was born, we returned home.
8th pup born - Red Male
9th pup born - Black Female
10th and final pup was the lone Black Male
This picture shows mom cuddled up with all 10 pups -- Look close!
You can only see the ear of one of the reds peaking out of the pile!
The fun begins!
The human mom has given the kids permission
to now visit with the pups.
You have to observe Scarlett in these pics.
She just had a REALLY long day birthing new babies
and she is COMPLETELY fine with the kids!
A kiss and some love for a job well done!
Last of the 1st day pics -- Mom's pooped out!
March 14, 2007 - Pups get Tail Docked & Dew Claws removed!
We're loaded up and off to the vet's...
And, after about 2 hours spent waiting there -
The pups are back home and resting with mom again.
Mom's resting ...
I think the whole experience is more traumatic for mom
just having to be away from her babies - not happy about that!
