We have puppies!

Lucy, in all her kindness and graciousness waited for us to be up and drinking the first cup of coffee before she went into labor. If only she knew how happy that made me! 🙂 Night time deliveries are not my favorite.

She had the first at 7:40, and has had 9 puppies, and it is 11:40 now. She went FAST. I think she is done, but she hasn’t left the box yet or gotten a drink, so I suppose she could still have one. She is not in the mood to be palpated (or touched or pet for that matter), so I will wait til she is settled to make sure she is empty. No sense stressing her. She is resting easy right now and the puppies are nursing.

Colors are 2 blue merle, 3 black, 4 white/apricot. 3 females, 6 males. I will post a litter picture sometime when Lucy is settled and we clean up. Maybe tomorrow. I will wait til day four to do individual pictures as these first four days are extremely fragile, and if there are any issues, they will show up between now and then.

What a blessing! Good work Lucy! She is such a great mom!
