One Week Old.

Here are Charlie's puppies at 1 week old. Sherman, Morgan and Lee. I think I have them mixed up in the post below. They've doubled their birthweight and Anne reports they are getting cuter each day.

Here are Charlie's boys! From the left: Lee, Morgan and Sherman. They all gained a bit overnight, always a good sign. More pics later as a I get them!
Way to go, Charlie!

It's a Boy!

No pictures yet, but Charlie did have her puppies this morning. Five boys, but only three survived. The first was stillborn, the second was stuck, necessitating a trip to the vet's for a c-section. He was dead when they got him out, but the three remaining were all viable so that's good. Charlie was still groggy when Anne called, but was perking up. More later when I get the next report and a picture or two.

Still Waiting....

Anne sent this picture of Charlie a couple of days ago. Five puppies were seen on her x-ray, a nice size litter. I talked with Anne this morning, her temp is dropping, down to 98.7 as of noon, so maybe something will actually start to happen soon, as this is her due date! I wish California was a whole lot closer to Florida right now!

The Waiting Game

Here's Charlie (Rincon Channel Isle Charlotte) trying out her puppy box area while waiting patiently for her puppies to arrive. She's due on Sept. 16th, and is doing very well so far.
Anne will take her in next week for an x-ray, see how many little cuties are expected.

Here's Meg!

Here's Meg's win shot from the Sat. Santa Barbara KC show. I'm very proud of her, and I think the picture shows her off very nicely. (me on the other hand I cropped out, my face was beet red from the heat!) The judge, Miss Joan Luna, was very fun to show to, she had such a fun attitude. We showed at about 1:00 pm on Saturday, and then we waited til Portuguese Water Dogs and Old English Sheepdogs were done before we could take pictures, which was about 2:00. It was so hot in the arena by then, I thought all the OES might just melt!
