K Litter's Growing Well

Saturday, we let Fancy have a little respite from her motherly duties. She got out in the kennel yard and romped a bit. The pups were 8 days old and it was the first break she had taken away from them. I think she enjoyed the time off. then when she went back in, she returned to her responsibilities.

Then yesterday, Tuesday, I noticed that about half of the puppies are starting to open their eyes. They are also crawling around a bit more. It's time now to put carpet in the whelping box so they can get some traction as they learn to walk.

As you can see, mother and all 11 puppies are doing well.

K Litter's Day 3

Pacolet, SC - Mother and all eleven babies are doing well this morning. Fancy has finally started moving about some. "Whelping eleven babies wears a mom out," she commented in the early Sunday morning hours. "But the satisfaction of caring for these precious ones makes it all worthwhile." She was all smiles.

Fancy was exhausted, but did take a moment to look at the camera.
