Puppies have arrived

As the saying goes "all is well that ends well" Justy delivered 3 lovely girls on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately the fourth puppy was caught in the birth canal and an emergency caesarian surgery had to be done. The little guy did not survive, but after many years of breeding I realize that sometimes things are out of our control. But Justy and babies are doing fine and we carry on. I have never had this small of a litter before and am quite surprised at how fast the daily "weigh-in" and "check up" goes.

WADDING POOL IN THE FAMILY ROOM Doesn't everyone have a wadding pool in their family room?? Likely not. But here at Brighthope it always means that puppies are due shortly. The furniture is moved and all the "maternity stuff" is put in place. Justy is feeling down right sorry for herself and she will likely be glad when the puppies arrive. And as always Momma Nature is in charge and we will just patiently wait and of course "hover" to make sure that all is well and taken care of. Not long now!!
