Looks like ten pups it is for Blottie's first ever litter of pups. She has done so well carrying them and now giving birth with little fuss and looks to be applying this to mothering them. All the pups are a good size and we will provide a buffer for Blottie offering feeds to the pups after each suckling time to make sure all are getting enough milk for the first few days and on wards if needed. Although I have a feeling that Blottie will have plenty of milk, as just like her tough old Mum who had nine pups the first time. Boy does this girl like her food and a few old contractions and giving birth ain't going to stop her up and like her old Mum, she was eating up to having her pups and in between having them, and has now just polished off a plate of meat and biscuits. If you got a bitch that is a good grubber, you will nine times out of ten have a bitch that is a good feeder of pups.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
