Khaleesi's First Litter

Many of you may remember when our girl Khaleesi was born. She was raised right here in the GRF with the 24/7 puppy cam, and then we posted about her regularly for a while. She was "Espresso" in that litter, for those who recall the coffee names.

Well, Khaleesi is in first stage labor as I write this, so within 12-24 hours, if nothing goes wrong, she should start whelping her very first litter. As soon as they are here, we will set up the puppy cam, and I will put a link in comments, so anyone who wants to watch the puppies, can. Typically, we've had people all over the world watching.

For your immediate entertainment, though, see if you can tell how many puppies she is going to have. Here is an x-ray taken a few hours ago. Count heads, or count spines if you can, and give me your guess as to how many puppies Khaleesi will have. Here is the x-ray. If it comes out huge, I apologize.

I have no skill at telling how many. It looks like a lot of spines. I can't wait to hear how many and see the puppies.

Hard to distinguish some spines, but I'm going for lucky 13 too. Reminds me of one of our girls when I was a kid who had 14! We had a small zoo for a while there. Best of luck for Momma and pups!

I'm going to guess 10. Will this be a Game of Thrones theme? I just looked at the breeding and it is going to be nice!
