On October 28th at 9:30 pm, Jane had her first puppy. She whelped the 9th, and last, at 2:00 am, and all seem well and healthy. There are 6 females, and 3 males. We have a variety of tail lengths. I will assign each puppy a number (which they will retain until they are given their names by their new owners) and show pictures of each side and the face. I will also note the tail length, as you can’t really see them in the pictures.
#1 Male: This puppy has a 3/4 length tail and very even spotting. Small white speck on head that will probably blend in to the fluff once his wavy hair grows out.
#2 Male: This puppy has a 1/4 length tail and really neat dark bands with merle in-between, and a split face. One side of his face is light merle, the other is black. 2 dogs in one. 🙂
#3 Male: This little guy is awesome. He has a 3/4 length tail and a lot of dark, particularly on one side, which make his merle markings jump out and look more defined. Like #2, he also has the split face. I’ve never had a dog patterned like this one. Too fun.
#4 Female: This puppy has a long tail, and very pretty even merling on her whole body and face. She has dark ears which will look really neat once the fluffy hair comes in. If you groom her face short, she will have a silver face with black poofy bangs. 🙂
#5 Female: This puppy is very similar to #4 in looks. Even beautiful patterning. Long tail, and nice dark ears. She has a pink spot on her nose, and I think will have a little more of a silver look than #4.
#6 Female: This girl will be an eye catcher with all her silver coloring. She has a longer than 3/4 tail. She is by far the lightest of the litter. She looks very similar to a puppy from the last litter- and he was a favorite of a lot of people!
#7 Female: Our sweet tiny runt girl did not make it. We are very sad. We helped her nurse every two hours and supplemented her with formula, but she was just not strong enough and didn’t gain any weight. We are now left with 8, very strong and healthy puppies.
#8 Female: This girl has a long tail.She has pretty even merling, with one side being more silver than the other. She has beautiful dark patches on her face which will look awesome when the wavy hair comes.
#9 Female: This girl has a short tail. She has gorgeous even spotting, with a split face. She has a very small white speck on her head, but that will blend in to everything else once the wavy hair comes in.
