Twister Puppies


It's been a busy day around here. Got some weeding done this morning, around noon the thunder, lightening and rain started. Then around 3pm after the thunder and lightening moved on, Twister decided it was time to have her puppies.  In over 25 yrs of being a breeder, this is only the second litter that was born during the day. The amazing thing is it took her less than 3 hours to have 8 puppies. The 9th was born about 2 hours later.  For a first time mom, she's being wonderful.  This isn't a very good picture, but she's taking very good care of her new little family. All are strong, healthy, wiggly and quiet.  We've got 6 girls, 3 boys. Two of the girls and one boy are brown, the rest are black, all are wavies.  I will be updating as they grow.  Now to see if these old bones can handle sleeping on the floor next to them for a day or two till they get a little bigger.
