    Cool story bill.

    I just got in from vet, had dew claws done and pups checked. We decided to leave the tail for now going to watch to see if the end dies or stays healthy. It appears to have a good blood supply and in no way is affecting the pup right now. Pups and mom are doing great, no runt all equal sized pups.

    Glad to hear all the pups are doing well ... curly-Q tail and all.

    I had a pup born with a stump tail, out of my lab when I was in my early twenties. Same length as a docked cocker spaniel. Everyone thought that she was a cocker pup…only a lot bigger. The dam had a shorter tail than "normal". Genetic and some thought could be related to RD/OSD or dwarfism, which we also seen a lot of back then.
