Well, it’s time to share about Lyric’s new babies!
By the way, we always wonder and worry about with a new mom and her first litter. Will delivery go smoothly, will she need assistance or even a C-section? Will she be a good mom and take care of the babies well and have enough milk. Or will she be nervous and anxious with these new creatures and not want me handling them?
Well, thankfully, there was no need to worry. Her delivery went well. She did have a couple puppies come out breech (back legs first) but I was right there and was able to assist getting those babies out quickly. She speedily took to cleaning and mothering them and had no issue with me checking each baby and handling it before I gave them back to her.
The only complaint I have is I wish she would eat more. She was all baby and and now needs to put some weight on herself. (Once a mom is confirmed pregnant she is switched from adult food to puppy food which is higher in fat and protein for the last half of her pregnancy. Unfortunately, just like humans, mama dogs don’t always feel like eating when they’re pregnant.) So she’s getting some extras. She loves the chicken and eggs I’ve cooked up to add to her food. And tomorrow I’ll be whipping up a batch of puppy pudding for her too.
And now to share! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from her, but I had some ideas of what colors she might produce.
And before anyone gets too excited, I’m just going to let you all know that there’s a good possibility that one puppy will stay on here. You can probably guess which one.
We have two Blenheim males, one Blenheim female, one apricot female and one merle parti female.
These pups will be matched with families on our waiting list. Puppy matching day will be Sunday, May 30th. And Puppy Delivery Day will be Sunday, June 20th.
