Puppies Have Arrived

Regulars know that I am a volunteer breeder caretaker with a service dog organization that provides assistance dogs at no charge to children, adults, and veterans with disabilities (other than blindness). The organization produces its own puppies so one of its breeder dogs, a (black) Lab, lives with me. She whelps in my home and I provide all the care for the puppies for the first 8 weeks of their life.


My girl had a litter this past Friday, so the puppies are 5 days old. Unlike her previous litters which were sired by Labs, this litter was potentially sired by a Golden Retriever and a (yellow) Lab. (DNA tests will tell us which puppies belong to which dads.) We are the "M" litter, so I'm currently thinking of "M" names that I'll submit to the organization who will pick from the list and then assign names to each puppy.



Momma and the puppies are doing well. This is a hungry litter. They are always eating!

Nine.


She delivered a 10th (totally unexpected) puppy about two hours after the 9th one, but it was a stillborn.
