Special thanks to Nancy (Erinsedge) and Vicki (Ladyduckhunter) for advising me through this breeding. Couldn't have done it without y'all! (Don't be fooled into thinking I won't be hitting you up with more questions...)
Talk about luck with a first litter... 1st pup came at 9:40AM and last was 2:26PM. Guess I stayed up all night the past (3) nights for nothing...
Ended up with (2) YLW F, (2) BLK F, (2) BLK M, and (3) YLW M for a grand total of (9) puppies. No single runt, most within 1/2 OZ of each other. (3) lightest weighed 14 5/8 oz. Heaviest 1LB 1 5/8OZ
For those of you that like to crunch the statistics... All females came first. Heaviest (3) pups were #s 6,7, and 8...
Our good friend and vet stopped by on his way home and gave mom and all pups the thums up!
