It's a boy!

After coming to expect large litters from my Golden girls we had a surprise this time. We got the news from the vet last week that first time mom Piper was expecting one big -- more like huge -- puppy. He was delivered by c-setion on Thursday, tipping the scale at 1 lb. 7 oz. - about the size of three pups. I have never had a singleton pup before but figure that if I can manage 13 I should be able to manage one. I'm calling him Uno right now. He is doing great, very active, crawling around everywhere, having the whole milk bar to himself and his mom and grandma - and me - doting on him. I think he's going to be a very special - and probably spoiled - boy.

Aw, Uno - welcome to the world I expect he's going to be a very special guy. All the attention will make him a people person for sure! Can't wait to hear all about his adventures and see how he grows - I bet you'll be able to do a lot of different things with him that you could never do with a dozen babies in tow. Looks like Piper knows exactly what to do with him, what a good little mama Congratulations

Congratulations! What a beautiful color. I love the name Uno. My last girl was a single and had such a wonderful calm confidence about her. There is something to be said about being an only child :-)

My son says the same thing! He's an only child, also a little spoiled, but very special too.

He's born into a great family, so I'm sure he'll get spoiled from all sides! Can't wait to see how he grows!
