    She had eight puppies from 9:30-1:30 last night, and I was up most of the night with them then. I went to work while my wife stayed with them during the day and I am night shift again.

    I just can't see how they all fit in her. She is mid fifties, and she had eight, biggest and first was 15 oz..... Most were 12.5-14 oz with a little male at 11. With them laying like that I don't see where they all fit!

    Congratulations on your litter. They will bring some frustration but a whole lot more joy along the way. Have fun!

    I keep her pretty lean to be able to work upland.... Vet told me that he thought her being so lean to start with and I did not fatten her up while pregnant was an advantage for giving birth because no extra fat in the way. I was shocked they were that big! She gained about thirteen pounds from breeding time to two days before delivering when we got the X-ray. X-ray count was right and it paid for itself. Not sure we would have save the last one if we didn't know there was another one in there. He was almost an hour and a half after number seven after being steady at 25-30 minutes for the first seven.

    Congrats.My chocolate delivered her first litter on the 4th of January. Before they were born she looked like she swallowed a volleyball. She retrieved her last rooster out of a frozen cattail swamp on the 17th of december. She went from 64 to 79 lbs,The pups weighed between 11.5 & 15.25 oz. I'm still up during the night after she had a bout with mastitis. Enjoy the litter.
