9 days old and new photos

2018-04-02T10:00:03+00:00February 27th, 2014|B-litter blog|
The pups are getting bigger every day, and the biggest puppies are so fat I almost getting worried 😉 Little Miss Pink has started to use her hind legs a little bit more when crawling, while the other fatsos are not quite there yet. But within the weekend I think we will already see the puppies getting more active, and shortly also opening their eyes. I have added a new album of the puppies 9 days old here

1 week old already

2018-04-02T10:00:04+00:00February 26th, 2014|B-litter blog|
The puppies are already 1 week old, and they are all doing great. Everyone have doubled their birth weight, and we are especially happy that our little Miss Pink also have doubled her birth weight. She is strong and have a strong will, and we are looking forward to learn about this little fighters personality 🙂 The other pups are big fat little pups, and sure knows how to use their voice when the milk is not coming!

Puppies 5 days old

2018-04-02T10:00:04+00:00February 23rd, 2014|B-litter blog|
Our puppies are 5 days old today, and both Kiwi and pups are doing great! Kiwi is being an affectionate and caring mother, and is doing a wonderful job with the little miracles. 
 
Our firstborn pup was a male born 00:16 and he weighed 440 gram. He has a small white marking on his chest and is correct. He got a blue collar. The second pup was a female born at 01:00 and weighed 520 gram. She is livernosed and seems to be correct. She got a purple collar. The third pup was a female born at 01:20 and she weighed only 250 gram. But she seemed strong right from the start and today she has almost doubled her birthweight. She seems to be correct so far, and have a large white mark on her chest. She got a pink collar. The firth pup was a male born at 03:30 and weighed 560 gram. He has two small white stripes on his chest and is correct. He got an orange collar. The final pup was born at 04:00 and was a male weighing 580 gram. He has no white markings, seems to be correct and got a green collar.
I have added some more photos and a video to the B-litter page here.

The pups are here!

2018-04-02T09:58:06+00:00February 19th, 2014|B-litter blog|

We are proud to announce the safe arrival of our B-litter February 18, 2014. We have 5 wonderful puppies, 3 males and 2 females. One of the females are livernosed, the rest are blacknosed. All seems correct so far, and first check showed no dermoid sinus. The delivery was uncomplicated and took 4 hours. 4 of the puppies had birthweight around 500 grams, while the blacknosed female weighed only 250 gram. She seems quite strong, and we are giving her extra care and hope she will gain some more weight quickly. All pups have lovely colors and substance, and we are very exited to see them develop.

Kiwi was so good during the delivery and are doing a wonderful job with the pups. She will just go outside for a short second, and then she runs back to her pups 🙂 She is in a good shape and are recovering very well.

59 days pregnant

2018-04-02T11:37:35+00:00February 16th, 2014|B-litter blog|

Kiwi is 59 days pregnant today, and sleeps a lot to be ready for the birth of the puppies any day now. We can’t wait to see what’s hiding inside her belly! I have attached a movie where you can see the puppies moving inside the belly.

Guilty dogs…

2018-04-02T11:40:14+00:00February 15th, 2014|News 2014|

More than one time have I come home and been met by the most guilty looks and body language from my dogs. I found this video from YouTube hilarious, and I laugh loudly every time I see it. I also found some old photos of my biggest mischief Sheriff. Often the look gave him away before I saw the mess 😉

Small photo update

2018-04-02T11:39:58+00:00February 13th, 2014|News 2014|

The other day I took some photos of Sheriff, and I am happy to see that he is aging with style! He is now 8 years and 7 months old, and still behaves like a young dog. I have a weak spot for that silly dog, and he is the only one of my dogs that have such control on me 😉 And for that I just love him dearly. I also took some new photos of our hairless airedale Isi, and both she and we loves her new haircut 😉 I took the liberty to steal a photo of Juno from Facebook, and I think it shows her personality very much. Silly little dog does every thing she know just to get a treat. And if it is to jump up on a small box were the paws nearly have space, so be it 🙂

55 days pregnant

2018-04-02T11:37:46+00:00February 12th, 2014|B-litter blog|

Kiwi is now 55 days pregnant, and the birth is not far away. She can start giving birth from day 58 to day 65, but the most common is between day 60 and 63. The variation in days can be related to the litter size or when the eggs was fertilized after mating. A female with a larger litter may give birth earlier than a female with a smaller litter, and the eggs could have been fertilized as long as 5 days after mating. 

Kiwi is in a very good condition, even though she is getting bigger everyday. She has not gained that much around her belly, but there are some visible changes from day to day. She still joins us for a walk, and she decides the speed as well as where and how long to go. But she still likes to trot around the neighborhood looking for the neighbors cats, and as long as Kiwi wants to, we let her join us. It is important that she is in a good physical shape when she give birth, and especially after giving birth and nursing the puppies. I could see some tiny drops of milk from her nipples today, and we have felt the puppies moving inside her for a while. The puppies are approximately 15 cm now.

50 days pregnant

2018-04-02T11:40:25+00:00February 7th, 2014|B-litter blog|

Kiwi is 50 days pregnant today, 78 cm around her belly and weighs 37,4 kg. She is in excellent condition, and still hangs with on our evening walks with the other dogs. She is desperately chasing food, and finds everything suitable as food. She is still calm and enjoys to relax in the couch, under the blanket. We notice that she grows a little everyday, and luckily for Kiwi she is not very heavy yet. We have started to get Kiwi adjusted to the puppy box, but she would rather use the bed next to the puppy box. However, Sheriff and Isi thinks the puppy box is very comfortable 😉

We can feel the puppies moving in her belly now, and it seems there are some active puppies inside that belly 🙂 The puppies have now reached approximately 75% of their birthweight and measures around 12 cm.

Every now and then I find some nice photos of our A-litter “pups”, and then I steal them 😉 Hope you forgive me folks! While we are waiting for our B-litter, we must not forget the lovely dogs from our A-litter that I am so found of!

While we are waiting for pups

2018-04-02T11:41:03+00:00February 2nd, 2014|News 2014|

I have really enjoyed the last weeks weather, with the perfect -5 °C and dry snow. The dogs have also enjoyed the wonderful weather, and especially Isi loves to be outside in the dry snow. Sheriff thinks it’s ok to go for walks, but I almost have to drag him by his collar to get him out to pee otherwise, in fear that I might lock him out for a while 😉 There are much focus on Kiwi these days, but Isi and Sheriff gets their share of pampering to 😉

45 days pregnant

2018-04-02T11:38:00+00:00February 2nd, 2014|B-litter blog|

Kiwi is 45 days pregnant today, 70 cm around her belly and weighs 36 kg. She is constantly hungry, and tries to brake into the food container every chance she gets. We see that she is smaller than with the A-litter where she carried 11 puppies, so perhaps we have half the amount this time. I have put together a photo to show Kiwi before mating, and at 45 day after mating. Not so much waist there anymore 😉 

We have also put up the puppy box, and Sheriff was perhaps the one who was most happy with “his” new bed 🙂 We are more or less ready for the delivery, and the puppy room are filled with everything we need. A larger puppy box will be put up in our livingroom when the pups are 2-3 weeks.
