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.

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

Fancy's not due till next Tuesday, July 7, but we were surprised to go to her whelping room this morning and find her already in labor - with 4 puppies already. By 8 pm she's had 11 puppies - 6 boys and 5 girls. Of those eleven, 4 are sable girls, 3 are sable boys, 3 are black & tan boys and 1 is a black & tan girl. Here's some pictures:
Here's Fancy and the first seven.
Here are the first six.
