They're here!

Decker delivered 9 (nine) puppies today via c-section at about 11am. 6 boys and 3 girls. (5 reds, 4 brindles). She's doing well, but hasn't begun to bond yet, which isn't unusual after a section.
She's happy to feed them if I sit with her and put them on, but other than that, she's not yet interested.
8 of them weigh between 6 and 8 ounces, and the brindle girl weighs only 3 5/8 ounces. She's the smallest puppy I've ever had, so we'll see how she fares. So far, she's a fighter.
I'll post pics later, as I have just a few minutes til I go and sit with her again.


  1. Congratulations Kathy. : ) Wow, 9 puppies and hope the little one makes it. Can't wait to seem them.
