And its a boy !
Dolly has just given birth to her eighth pup, her only boy and we think her last pup. As the uterus contracts back down it can feel like one last pup but if you wait for inbetween the contractions and then cannot feel any mass you can be pretty sure all pups have been expelled but you can be wrong some times.
Now for clean up operation and getting these pups through the next few days safe and sound. Pups can easily be lost in the first few days of life, so not out of the woods yet.
Just a quick photo of Dolly now with all her pups, as internet went down before I could blog photo above. So its eight pups, with three black girls, four golden girls and one golden boy.
Will be intouch with everyone interested in this litter after the weekend. Now for a night of random squeaks from Dolly's pups and me jumping up out of bed like a scalded cat to see if every thing is okay, invariably it is okay.

Oh Mummy how clever you and Daddy are. My Mum Margaret says if they are a good and nice and beautiful and naughty as me they will be fantastic. Time for a good rest for everyone especially Mummy Jane xx
