Sunday July 27th was the first due date from her first breeding to Gavin and right on schedule starting at 7:30 am. Three boys followed by a girl…..many more to come.
The first girl pup made an interesting debut. I have never seen or heard anything like it. There was a big pop and she came shooting out… like she was shot from a cannon. I actually was startled and jumped. Caitlin was here and also witnessed it, good someone else saw it as it was so amazing!
Final count 6 boys and 2 girls.
Does this look familiar??? The boys aren’t the only ones that carry big sticks.
How about swimming to shore with a big stick?
Tandem Sticks anyone??
First trip outside! They were so thrilled they wanted to sleep.
The two boys are on the left and wide awake, the stock coat to the far left looks just like Gavin to me, next to him is the dark long-coat male with the purple color, the next 5 are the girls:
three sleeping beauties:
Overhead view of the fat puppies, to the far left is teal-orange, she is the only “normal’ pup as far as weight, from left, orange-teal, pink-purple, lime-green, diva:
They even have fat tails! from the topleft to bottom right, purple-male, blue-flag-male, and pink-camo:
Blue-flag boy, he is so full of himself, he struts around and barks:
Purple-boy all about the food, big bruiser of a pup:
Pink-purple long-coat girl, when she is awake she is always very attentive:
blue-flag boy again:
Inga with her pups in the sun:
and again in the shade:
I am going to eat your face! Peach-teal biting the muzzle of pink-purple, blue-flag over the shoulder of peach-teal:
Pink-camo putting her ESI to work:
Remember how John Travolta walked in Saturday Night Fever? Well that is how blue-flag walks around, I can hear the BeeGees in my head when I watch him:
Lime-green long-coat girl:
Libby was entered in the Rochester Collie Club Herding trial Friday and earned her 1st Q. She looks like she enjoyed it. It was funny that the judge had to go get her after I had her in a sit stay and we walked to the end of the line. Libby looked at her like-hey, I was told to sit here.
The notes from the judge said;
“lovely dog! Tends to want to stop movement by going to heads-what a GSD was meant to do!
